In today’s video I headed up North too Nottingham to go and visit Eco Tree Lithium. These guys were awesome as we were able to upgrade my battery and electrical system to allow me to spend more time off grid. They really know there stuff and it was great to spend a couple of days picking there brains and trying to get a much better standing of this all.

    what a guy

  2. TheSwithy on August 23, 2022 at 3:45 am

    Hi Will, good to see you back I think you will struggle to run a microwave with that battery as the max current discharge on that battery is only 100 amp according to the specs on the Eco Tree web site I run a small microwave myself (700 watt) and it draws approx 120-130 amp continuous when running,, The BMS in the battery will be the limiting factor you may need to swap it out for a larger BMS to run a microwave or put 2 batteries in parallel I couldn’t find the spec on your inverter but it will need to be at least 1500w continuous preferably more to run a small microwave.

  3. 4ndy123 on August 23, 2022 at 3:46 am

    Should have got the pros to quickly check that diesel heater too!

  4. Joseph Sullivan on August 23, 2022 at 3:47 am

    Congratulations on the upgrades!! This definitely will give you a solid electrical setup. Less worries going forward. Things are coming together!! Keep going a little at a time and it’ll all work out!!

  5. akaday on August 23, 2022 at 3:47 am

    Mate you said you are a full time YouTuber but with your numbers how are you bank rolling this? That’s like Β£3000 worth of goods and work thereabouts.

  6. Betty Van White on August 23, 2022 at 3:48 am

    You crack me up! I get it. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around solar, amp hours, volts, watts, ac/dc, inverter, charger blah, blah, blah, it’s nuts for a newbie. But like you, I want to get it. I’ve decided if I keep talking and watching about it, something will finally stick. I think you made a wise choice to go to a professional. I may do the same. Cheers!

  7. Karina - on August 23, 2022 at 3:50 am

    We watch your videos for your personality, your sense of humour and just you, not the van or anything else. Keep up the good work πŸ’™

  8. Big Tog on August 23, 2022 at 3:50 am

    You should just keep a pillow in the van permanently.

  9. jeff sturgess on August 23, 2022 at 3:51 am

    Uk mains electricity is 230v not 240v.

  10. Paul Gamble on August 23, 2022 at 3:52 am

    Hey Will glad to see your more like the Will we all love. Another great video mate, don’t let the tougher days in life get you down. Remember determination and talking about how your feeling to anyone always helps. See you in the next one pal.πŸ‘

    Ciao! Greetings from italy! Hey have you heard about a 12v rice cooker? It’s a life saver for me when me and my kids went car camping. I can cook rice while driving and it will be ready by the time we arrived in our destination. It has a locking lid feature for safety. It can also cook other things like a slow cooker. I baked bread in it one time and cooked meat and vegetables casserole style. You can find it on eBay or Amazon and they are not expensive. I bought mine for €20 on ebay 8 years ago. It served us well when we went to iceland for a week. It was also my emergency cooker when we had no electricity in our home for 24 hours. I really enjoyed watching your video. It all started when I am doing research for trekking to Mt. Everest and I stumbled in your channel. And your videos are very informative and as well as entertaining. Keep it up, cheers!

  13. Michaela Marie Slade on August 23, 2022 at 3:58 am

    sharing highs/lows so key – authenticity is the way .. go Will ..

  14. zeveroare R on August 23, 2022 at 3:59 am

    I’m sorry. Your pallete is pathetic. mcdonalds is trash. :p

    The future is a battery they are probably inventing as we speak. Might be lithium, might be something else. (in Europe, if you don’t go too far up north, lithium should be fine at the moment.)

  15. Boating Manchester on August 23, 2022 at 3:59 am

    Good to see you back on form fella

  16. Yoda B.at1 on August 23, 2022 at 4:01 am

    Top stuff mate, you should be proud. Keep doing this great content.

  18. David _1 on August 23, 2022 at 4:04 am

  21. Rion James on August 23, 2022 at 4:06 am

    Great video. I am terrible at electrics, keep reading but it won’t sink in. All this I want to do in my can eventually. I might have to have a chat with these eco guys

  22. Free Bird _UK_Van_Life on August 23, 2022 at 4:07 am

    Good to see you are feeling better. Great vid!

  23. Christian Romay on August 23, 2022 at 4:07 am

  25. jo662 on August 23, 2022 at 4:08 am

    Hi Will, really enjoy your videos as they are real life and not just showing all the good bits. Keep them coming.
    Could you give me an idea of what it cost to have the lithium fitted please as I’m thinking of having them fitted to my van.
    All the best and safe travels πŸ‘

  26. M4R KU5 on August 23, 2022 at 4:09 am

    Hi I see multiple mounts for your devices what did you use to record the videos on? Also where did you get the mounts from

  27. Derek Mcfadyen on August 23, 2022 at 4:10 am

    Thank god you will be able to use a hairdrier. !……. πŸ˜…

  28. Niteranger63 on August 23, 2022 at 4:10 am

    Glad to hear you are doing better

  29. Melissa Waite on August 23, 2022 at 4:11 am

    Glad you’re feeling better πŸ˜ƒ. It’s hard to be β€˜on’ sometimes.

  30. junior4246 on August 23, 2022 at 4:15 am

    mate what size inverter are you using with the 350 w solar panels ?

  31. GOODLUKIN VL on August 23, 2022 at 4:15 am

    New Viewer πŸ™‚ You All UK Peeps just blow my mind with the current you all use over there :/ I’m in Canada πŸ™‚ And with that said your Battery would not hold up in minus 30C sitting on the floor like that imo ?? and that’s without the wind chill factor lol not sure how your van would hold up in Canada ? otherwise nice build when you have nothing but cash lol that Victron setup alone is worth a mortgage payment for sure lol Peace

  32. robert canning on August 23, 2022 at 4:15 am

    Well done Will. Youve come along way from the estate car

  33. Richard Benallick on August 23, 2022 at 4:19 am

    Learning with Will!

  34. Rebecca Howley on August 23, 2022 at 4:21 am

    So pleased to see that some weight seems to have been lifted from your shoulders and your positivity is shining through. I suffered with severe clinical depression myself in my mid twenties, but with the support of those around me (and im not ashamed to admit, some carefully prescribed medication for a short time) I came through it. I love the honesty of your videos and thank you for sharing your journey with us all. It takes great strength of character to do what you do! Look forward to the next video x

  35. ImDBatty1 on August 23, 2022 at 4:22 am

    It’s almost like you’re becoming a professional… Even going to a professional, is the best thing you can do, because you know you’re getting it done right, for just a few extra pounds… 🀠

  36. alphadog0228 on August 23, 2022 at 4:23 am

    I have struggled considerably these last too months. I am tire. I want to have access to a nice van for trips this simmet

  37. NicholasEJones on August 23, 2022 at 4:23 am

    Great vlog, some seriously great kit installed!

  38. Another World is Yours on August 23, 2022 at 4:25 am

    Good to see you pick yourself up Will.

  39. Andrew & Barbara on August 23, 2022 at 4:26 am

    Nice video pal and good to see you on your game again. We all have our down day’s . Keep your chin up. X A&B

  40. Linda Lawrie on August 23, 2022 at 4:26 am

    You are an inspiration to all of us. Many people, including myself, struggle with depression and or crazy thoughts. πŸ€ͺ be strong. We love your output. 😍

  41. Dev Sirpali on August 23, 2022 at 4:29 am


  42. Brendon Birch on August 23, 2022 at 4:32 am

    Nice πŸ‘ literally 2 mins round the corner. Do these guys give advice on electrical setups as I’m bloody useless with this stuff in my conversion

  43. Tim Grossmann on August 23, 2022 at 4:32 am

    Glad to see you in a better place. I just want to add the more you work on the van the more tools you’ll buy. the right tool can make jobs easier.

  44. ClarkeeKat on August 23, 2022 at 4:33 am

    Cheers for making this video, it was a good watch

  45. Savor the Journey on August 23, 2022 at 4:34 am

    I appreciate your honesty and optimistic attitude!!!! 🀩

  46. Adam white on August 23, 2022 at 4:35 am

    Haha i thought that was my local McDonald’s ,and it is

  47. Lord on August 23, 2022 at 4:38 am

    How much did the system cost installed please

  48. remco chervet on August 23, 2022 at 4:40 am

    RespectπŸ‘πŸ‘ love your videos. Grtz from the Netherlands

  49. Jerry Tilley on August 23, 2022 at 4:40 am

    You said in the video about using the Inverter to give 230v power so that you can charge your laptop. As the inverter uses power itself then you can save this powerloss by finding a 12v charger adapter for your laptop, so that you can charge the laptop directly from the 12v battery.

    And the nights in the galaxy seem to far, far away. Nice upgrade Will.
