DIY Powerwall Builders Are Using Recycled Laptop Batteries to Power Their Homes

0 Comment


Are you interested DIY Powerwall Batteries? We came across some interesting people building their own kind of Tesla Powerwall Batteries. Instead of buying Tesla’s Powerwall, they build their own DIY versions using recycled batteries for a fraction of the cost. Then, naturally, they share their creations and swap knowledge with other hobbyists across the internet. DIY powerwall enthusiasts congregate on a dedicated forum, in Facebook groups, and on YouTube. They live all over the world: I spoke to makers on three different continents and a half dozen time zones.

A pioneer in the world of DIY Powerwall Batteries is Jehu Garcia. Jehu, regarding popular Powerwall Batteries, told me, “It’s the future. It’s clean, simple, efficient and powerful,” He and people like him are deciding for themselves what the future of alternative energy will look like, instead of waiting for technology companies to shape it for them. “The end result is being able to rely on something I not only built myself but understand the ins and outs of to power some or all of my electricity in my home. That is inspiring,” Joe Williams, another powerwall builder, told me.
