I have a motorhome with four 6 Vdc golf cart deep cell batteries that are wired in series. So the batteries produce 12 volts for the coach. Can I use grape solar panels to charge the 6 V batteries that are wired in series that produce 12 volts?
Asked by: Mike
Yes, but keep in mind you need a charge controller between the panels and the battery. The PWM controllers are popular with our panels since their voltages are perfect for charging 12V battery banks with a single panel or multiple panels connected in parallel. If you plan to use the more efficient (and expensive) MPPT controllers, you will need to connect at least two of these panels in series for most of that type of controller.

HOW MANY WATTS WOULD IT TAKE TO HOOKUP 30 AMPS?

HOW MANY WATTS WOULD IT TAKE TO HOOKUP 30 AMPS?
Asked by: SISSY
100W PANEL PUTS OUT 6 AMPS. 4 100W PANELS WILL GIVE U 24 AMPS. 30 AMP CHARGE CONTROLLER. THIS WILL MAX OUT THE CONTROLLER U NEVER WANT TO TAKE IT THAT HI IT WILL BURN IT UP .SO 24 AMPS ON IT IS OK PUTTING TO 30 AMPS IS NOT SAFE. THE CHARGE CONTROLLER THAT IS.

How do I wire them in parallel

do I have to buy an adapter
Asked by: Tom
connect positive to positive and negative to negative. the 10 gauage (awg) wire will carry up to 40 amps ( iuse a maximum of 6 panels pr run) as long as the itance is less then 30 feet (including all wires from the farthest panel to the charge controller and then to the batteries.). I currently have 5 panels on a 10 awg wire run for 30 feet, (multimeter shows .001 amp loss and .003 volt loss) that ties 2 more banks of 6 panels each to a 2 awg wires run 30 more feet to the charge controler and then zero awg from the controler to the batteries about 6 feet additional. and of course zero awg to a 5000 and a 2000 watt inverters... works perfectly for about 1 year so far. no noticable loss in power at any connection..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value and well built I ordered 2 of these panels to replace some thin-film panels I purchased from another seller. For the price, these panels produce much more power ($/watt) and are much more solidly built. They are easy to mount and connect. The first panel was basically thrown into a box with little protection for shipment, but the second panel came in more protective packaging. Neither panel, however, arrived damaged. I have them paired (in series) with the Grape Solar 300W MPPT controller, also sold by Home Depot, to keep a small bank of 12V batteries charged - see pics. (Note: I can put them in series because the controller is MPPT.) Works wonderfully.

Item was exceptional quality for price. Functional for the last 2 weeks. Mounted it on the support framework of the old non functional solar panels with no problems.

It can provide 3 to 4 amperes on most days and can probably provide nearly 5 amperes on a clear, sunny day. Don't expect much more -- the "100 watts" is marketing, not reality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100 watt Grape Solar Panel Yes I would recommend and would buy again. Great panel for the price. Add as many panels as you need. Great for the budget minded. I currently have 8 of these panels. Tax deduction and saving lots of money on my electric bill

I have purchased a number of these over the years when they are on sale. Cheapest and most efficient way to go for a back-up solar system. I currently have seven.

I'm not sure if it is my setup or the panels themselves but I am getting about 50% of the amperage out of 2 panels, hooked up in parallel, that I expected. Otherwise the panels appear well built.
