Just wanted to give an update on the hoover. Now the solar is up and running and I’m using the inverter to charge the laptop, I tend to have the hoover charging at the same time. Previously I was lugging it back and forth to B’s house, now I can use it everyday!! The house is definitely a bit cleaner. I guess I’ll be sad in winter when there is less juice available. The hoover is still cleaning well. It goes great emptying out the sucked up dust into newspaper and then burning it in the stove. It is a bit annoying the hoover doesn’t stand up on its own, but it doesn’t matter that much, it leans and can stand in its charging stand.
