    Lightbulb Is this really doable?

    I'm new to the forum and to e-biking and came across this video whilst researching alternative power sources for charging an e-bike battery.

    All the other information out there tends to suggest that large folding solar panels are the only way to charge an e-bike battery sufficiently. I wonder how this differs.

    He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts...for support rather than illumination. I do like my beer, so sometimes I do end up leaning on the lamp-post...

    I would say it would work great. Put it on a box to carry stuff as the lid, and bingo... I did my last holiday with a 70W solar panel on my camper and charged my BionX every day with it no problem, never plugged in the whole two weeks, did 650KMs all on solar power.

    Wouldn't this be the perfect combo of said scenario.
