So far, so good... Operating as expected, although I didn't quite know what to expect. Haven't put it through the paces, so much. I hope the kit that went to whoever needed it in Puerto Rico, is up to whatever tasks they're putting it to!
Tried roasting coffee, via popcorn popper, plugged into the Kodiak, but I think it draws 1500W, which seems a bit much for the Kodiak to handle. Runs a couple minutes, at a noticeably lower speed/motor-pitch; beans start browning, but then, almost done, shuts down. Kodiak battery doesn't indicate fully drained, yet doesn't wanna roast coffee anymore. No biggie... I can probably look into lower wattage poppers/roasters for after the apocalypse...
S'pose I'll have to bone up on basic electronics to make sense of the rotating cast of numbers on the little display. The fact that the number of colored lights decreases a lot while it's in use, and then springs back up toward blue (if not all the way) between uses requires a bit of mental adjusting from the notion of a gas tank indicator. Wish there were a way to understand how much "stuff" is left in the tank (which clearly underscores my lack of understanding of electronics). Maybe one of those flashing numbers holds the key?
Guess that's my biggest (albeit mild) beef about the thing: the manual is SO brief. I mean, it's clear, and easy to understand, but only because it bears very little info. Like, should I expect a specific number to show up when I have the 100W solar panel plugged in? Is there a number that would indicate that things weren't working as they should? If I got another 2 or 3 panels, would I be able to notice, by the display, that they're working as we'd expect them to? Maybe that's too much to expect from a user's manual?
At any rate, it's nice to be using the solar panel to recharge the electric bike. Looks like the system is up to that task, at the very least. I hope to suss out whether or not it's up to more than that, before it ever becomes all-out ...
This is our second Kodiak,we liked the first one so well we bought another one.
Simple. Quality. Efficient. Exceeding expectations!!
