Do-It-Yourself Solar-Powered PC: Hardware

Efficiency Is Where It's At

This PC power supply does not come package in an enclosure, so great care is advised during installation and use - it can easily short out and get damaged. That's why we built our own enclosure for the supply, which also gave us a good way to mount a fan for this 12-volt device. We used Plexiglas for its construction, cut into carefully measured pieces and glued together.
