Circuits in rust are a combination of Electrical Components combined together to manipulate power
Below are a couple simple circuits I made used to gather power and prepare to run though a base.
*Note: These Components are crucial in the power delivery thought out the base build, they should be in a secure location.
Solar or wind driven this setup will keep the power always on for door timers, lights ect.. Day or night. Utilization a battery backup in case a windmill or solar panel gets damaged (heli) allowing a few hours to repair or to replace, while keeping power to the base.
This circuit I used a splitter but you could also use an Electrical Branch, this will allow power to split into the battery half into the main line. Caution you should watch your power load vs charge time to make sure your battery can last the night, you might need to add more solar or just use a wind turbine, this circuit is also good as a batt backup with a turbine incase the turbine gets damaged by a Heli or whatever it can supply power while repairs are made.
Solar or wind driven lights, only turn on at night, allowing battery to charge and run the lights at night
Battery will not charge is under load, the blocker is not allowing passthrough of the current coming from the battery thus allowing it to charge in the day. This is a useful relatively cheap circuit to complete and is nice to only have the lights come on when needed.
