USB power supply on the Big Rig

Marco from Netherlands sends in a High Tech post!

Last weekend i was fishing on a large lake for 2 days.
Day 1 everything went fine my tablet* my go-pro etc.
Day 2 error time! tablet* battery low, go-pro battery empty !!

So today I made myself a 3100mA USB adapter with 3 12V plugs on the JK Big Rig.

Connected with 2 times 5 watt solar panels and a 20AH dry cell battery

So we have no more power problems on longer fishing trips .
Problem solved
I use the tablet for real time operating and viewing my gropro shots.
my next project will be a wifi solution for underwater use of the go-pro in real-time.
