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 you can. You should always wire your panels to a proper charge controller and then wire the controller to the battery bank. Otherwise you will overcharge your battery system and damage them. If you have a MPPT charge controller, you can wire your panels in series and set the charge controller to charge a 12v battery system. If you have a PWM charge controller, wire your panels in parallel.

Will this run a 12 volt up to 5.5 amp bilge pump?

I want to know if this will run a rule bilge pump 27d hooked directly to the pump without any regulator or controller? Or would I need a regulator? Just want the bilge pump to run when the panel gets sunlight. I don't care if it doesn't run on cloudy days or partial sun, etc. I don't want or need to have a battery to store power either. I just really need the panel to act as an on/off switch for the pump. The "on" being in sunlight.
Asked by: James
It will, but keep in mind that the panel is producing 18v and your bilge pump is rated at around 13.8 or so. The pump must have a float switch on it or it will burn up once it runs dry.

I purchased this to create an awning over my south facing front door. $100 for the panel and around $100 for the angle iron for mounting is cheaper than simple awnings. It keeps a Goal Zero battery in the house topped up no problem. It generates so much power I am going to build an electric bike to use it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install I installed two panels on my 30 foot toy hauler camping trailer. They were simple to install and have kept my trailer charged ever since.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought 4, all good I mounted them on a tilting rack, to follow the sun, manually. They do a fine job charging my 6 golf cart batteries on a sunny day. They charge a little on a cloudy day. The way I have them mounted, all 4 sets of wires come together in a beaker box. I cut the connectors off. Used 6-3 with ground wire. paired the conductors, red and black, for positive, white and ground for negative, for a better conduction 80 ft.

After a half hour of operation, I told myself, Yup, Must buy another. This product Exceeded My Expectations! Just remember, hardware is all special order! Today is a cloudy day but it's still working!
