Solar Powered battery rack as Electroplating Power Source?
November 9, 2016
Q. Would it be feasible to convert solar powered battery rack (4 batteries in parallel 6V and total 1000 ah charged automatically by solar power) to an electroplating power source? Would it be enough for a 50 gallon copper/cobalt plating set up? The rack is expandable to accommodate more batteries.

A. Hi Marvin,
That might be enough power depending on desired rate and target size(s). A rheostat would be necessary.
