Looking to power your caravan or weekend get-away? The Weekend Warrior Kit gives you off grid solar power anywhere, anytime, so you’re free to go wherever the road takes you with our DIY solar panels, NZ.
Behind the Scenes DIY with Two Weekend Warriors
Mat M. camps from September to May in an area without power. He had grown sick of driving every few days to pick up ice for chilly bins, so he bought one of our GridFree Weekend Warrior Kits. He set up the off grid solar kit himself in three days and is now running a digital inverter fridge / freezer, lights, a small television, along with charging mobile phones. He said the instructions were easy to follow and shared the tip of taking plenty of breaks to easily set up the Weekend Warrior Kit in just a few days. He can now power his lifestyle with DIY solar panels, NZ wide.
Stacey M. converted an ambulance four years ago with our GridFree Weekend Warrior set-up that he says, “Works like a charm!” By timing it carefully for sunny days on clear weeks, he’s even cooking with 230V using a small 1,100 W induction plate and an 800W air-fryer - while keeping a 42lt freezer operational all the time. He added on our 1,000W battery charger for overcast days where he might have run out of juice - instead, a few hours on the generator takes care of the deficit if there’s a lack of sun. He said, “I think you’re going to be pleasantly surprised at how much power you’ve got to play with.”
