No. These solar panels are shit and wickedly inefficient.

>> No.64485334

Eh. Wrong.

Bright/white colors only (mostly) reflect visible spectrum light, the bulk of heat generation is from infrared light. You'd want to shield something with a dark or layered object to stop it suffering too much from sunlight. A simple white sheet or shirt is still going to pass the majority of infrared/ultraviolet energy to whatever is beneath it.

I'd suggest a jacket or coat because you can tent the jacket so there's open air for the device. A blanket or sheet would be more difficult to work with in this regard.

>> No.64485415

>There's a reason the abos are dark as hell.
I'm confused. Wouldn't that make them absorb more sunlight and overheat faster?

>> No.64485435

Yes, that's why they need to cool down with a sip of petrol.

Technically yes, but it's actually melanin. Melanin is a substance that protects the skin against UV rays by mopping up molecules that are damaged by the sunlight. the more melanin, the more protection against UV damage, including damage to genetic components of the cells.

That it makes you darker is a quirk of evolution.

No. You could burn 25lbs of wood everyday for a little over 10 years, and it still wouldn't equal the amount of CO2 and other gases required to make the panels. At least with wood you can replant the trees you've cut down and over the next 10 years reduce total CO2 production.

Really high peaks can only decrease the boiling point of water by 5 degrees. The variations are going to be pathetically small, especially when you're comparing between places that actually have a significant amount of population. You need to climb really high or be a literal troglodyte just to witness water boil/freeze at temperatures that are from NTP conditions.

Why does that matter? The only thing that matters is: if it works it's great, if it doesn't work it's shit. (And wind and solar don't work to supply mains electricity, and I don't know or care much about other applications)

the ONLY good way to use these fuckers is to EXLUSIVELY use them to charge big USB battery packs. you should have like 2 or 3 20mAh packs with you, and charge 2 of them while rotating out one to plug your shit into.

the darker skin although makes them overheat faster, theoretically, evolutionary adaptations gave them those gigantic noses to breath in more fresh air so as to have a more efficient way to cool their brains, also their darker skin is more resilient to sunburn than a white person's pale skin

>> No.64492645

Who gives a fuck soyboy, man just want to charge his fucking phone.

>> No.64492681

this is also the reason as to why us whites have narrower noses and smaller nostrils, since our skin color and the shape of our noses are both evolutionary adaptations to respectively better blend with our environment and to reduce the entrance of excessive cooled air into our heads, which would in turn induce hypothermia

Last I heard, a 1KW panel uses ~180KWh of power to make, so that's 180 hours of direct sunlight to recover the energy used. So one Australian summer and it's neutral
