Need to add some lighting (LED?) and possibly power for a hifi to a metal shed at the end of the garden.Roof gets plenty of sun in summer but not so much in winter.Any experiences/recommendations/pitfalls?
I use a lot of the ebay ECO-WORTHY 100W panels on huts I build, never had any issues with the solid ones. Flexi was useless though. Run the LED straight off 12V and get the best pure sine inverter you can find/afford to run the hifi through.
…. or just get a battery charger to charge a [leisure] battery in the house every now and then.
I’ve done this with a beach hut and found that a car stereo, with some decent car speakers, soaked up a fairly large chunk of power – the lights didn’t seem to use that much.
We now use bluetooth speakers that we can charge at home as they seem to be more power efficient yet still sound good.
Even with a solar panel you’ll probably still nee to charge the battery occasionally.
Otherwise do it properly and run 240v down the garden.
