    If it wasn't sealed at the top then it would not be effective as an air pocket. I would suggest that it does need to be sealed at the top.

    Nothing can flow until there is a circuit, and a circuit does not care which connection is first or last. The only thing that I can think of is for possible static discharge, but that seems extremely...

    Not specific to Kings, but just general information. Most solar panels are over-rated in terms of output. You can only reasonably expect around 170-180 watts maximum per square metre of actual active...

    I have a large one as well. Jaws are only 5" wide but she weight a ton. Blacksmith's vice. Made so that you can bash the hell out of them, unlike most bench vices. But she's no precision instrument.

    I'm not convinced that the roof limit is any more than 100kg. Just because it was somewhere on the web does not make it correct. I want to see something better than someone's opinion (and I don't...
