    I've seen alot more solar powered boards more than anything else. As you can imagine, the downside is not having any sun, but I think the storage capacity of the batteries are immense to the point where you should be able to go at least 2 weeks with only a couple days of sun.

    No question the solar powered is the way to go. With todays LED boards you can go for a long time with out any sun. The only problem with them is that the battery don't last forever and it can cost some cash to buy new ones.

    thats what i figured. if we use it once or twice a week that will be alot so i think they should have plenty of time to charge if there is no sun. im looking for an led model but they are $$$$... i could get a nice solar halogen for about a grand, well see... thanks for the input...

    lol that is funny. those boards are alot more than the board i want though. i need just a simple arrow board.. a lot of businesses now are renting those message boards around to here to let you know about sales or specials and its very annoying...
