What does everyone think of the Solar Panels? Reckon they'd be any good?

Cheers

Mate I purchased the 120 watt solar panel they were selling a couple of years ago for not much more from memory.  It's been great and still working well.
Cheers Terry.

Bit of a thread revival.

Anyone got one of the Aldi motorbike bluetooth intercom things? If so do they work? Aldi has their motorbike stuff on tomorrow and I see they have some again.

Yep, had a few of them and they work well. Really well......


when you remember to charge them  >:(

Do you think this TV 12V? Its advertised in the camping section but it doesn't state either way if its 12 or 240?

https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-buys/special-buys-sat-20-feb/saturday-detail-wk07/ps/p/215-tv-with-built-in-dvd-player/
I thought the same. I have assumed, seeing as it does not specifically state 12v, its just a 240v.

At a guess it will be a 12v TV but come with a 240v transformer to step down to 12v. If it doesn't come with it you can they just by a 12v lead for sub$15.

No worries, happy to help.
We bought a 65" bauhn late last year. It is a fantastic tv. Obviously it isn't as good as a sony bazillion dollar tv, however it is a very clear picture and it works well. It is also crystal clear with HD sources, such as blueray or PS4  :cup:

I bought an aldi tv for the van  about 3 yrs ago . Although it used a 240v to 12v power pack it wouldn't work in 12v only. Keep shutting off. Otherwise great tv/DVD player.

I'd say if it comes with a cig adapter it'll be fine if not it may struggle.
Here for a good time, not a long time!

Well... I unpacked some of the Aldi stuff this evening. ...

Overall everything looks well made and designed. ...  but the thing that totally blew me away was the fan...

It is great....   Oscelates and is powerful to a distance of approx 2 5mtrs+ ... not too noisy either. ..

Seriously, I reckon anyone wanting a fan - grab one of these units...

We have the ryobi one plus fan and its great because we have the batteries and it is not drawing on our 12v power but I really wish it had the oscillate function to move the air a bit more. I have seen good reviews on a mistral brand 12v from bunnings too.

Is there any way to attach the fan to a wall or roof surface?

The "half an 80 series trailer" doesn't have any "floor" space as such. (it's all bed)

So I'd need to be able to attach it to a wall or the roof...

Does anyone know if these Aldi Mig welders are worth getting, I wouldn't be using it all that often but it would been handy to have from time to time
