way to manage energy.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As raised in my post about solar panels and batteries in the take on mars suggestions forum that i recommend reading here

here are my two suggestions about power management of mainely rovers as probs don't consume that much energy.

-Making full power solar panel recharge chem batteries or alowing us to redirect the solar energy to the chem batteries foreseeing more night venturing.
-Allowing control of where the electricity come from or restrict the use of a source of energy.
those two together would make rover use only solar panel energy at day and chem batteries at night.

Solar panels now recharge according to incident light angle. Chemical batteries are just that - chemical and cannot be recharged. They are one use. The vehicle itself always has internal, rechargeable batteries.
