Theoretical battery from locally gathered materials continued

The simplest (and flawed) system for producing stored dc power from a battery that is trickle charged by a minimal solar power. In a better system, a car battery could be the stored dc battery, and in even better system a deep cycle marine battery would be used to store the power. Of course the better the battery, the longer it will take to recharge it, and the better the solar panel, the less time it will take to recharge it too. The inverter is needed to power AC devices, but clearly this isn't intended for any AC devices that use high amperage. Many dc power devices can directly be powered from the battery and skip the inverter.

An ideal way to do this is to wire up the setup and place it all contained within a battery box. This will make it far easier to avoid an electrical shock, and prevent curious children from accidentally touching the electrical leads. Honestly there is no way to idiot-proof something like this.

Naturally if you possess the ability to recharge people's batteries, or you possess a way to have them turn in their batteries and sell them flashlights in return, you need to have the setup in your home and with a minimal footprint as it will be something they would want. Since many people are selfish, but uneducated about electricity, if things are stable and you can produce low voltage power sources either altruistically or in order to trade it and help your family, you'll be able to create some minor stability for your neighborhood.

This is an excellent community project, as many folks will have expended batteries around their household in drawers and forgotten.
