Home made solar scooter

Don Dunklee has applied some ingenuity and come up with a way to charge his electric scooter using solar panels. The best part is that he’s put the instructions on how to build your own solar scooter on the web for all to see and use.

The solar panels fold in for driving, and out for charging.  Don rides the scooter 5 miles to work each day, and can fold the panels out for charging the battery while parked at work.
