Customer Questions & Answers

Will it charge batteries

Asked by: Adawg0214
Hi, Absolutely. Our panels are off-grid and will need 12v batteries to charge.

How many watts can a 12 volt battery hold? What can one battery and panel run?

Asked by: anita
Hello, This is a very tricky question. You really need to start with what appliances you want to run and then work backwards to determine the right battery, inverter, controller and solar panel size. There are many great calculators on the internet that will help you determine size. You can try to search for solar panel calculator.

Can u plug an out door light into

Asked by: Frank
Hi Frank, That will not be possible to plug a light directly into the solar panels as our solar panels are for off-grid type purposes. You may attach outdoor light to a battery and use the 40W panel to charge your battery.

Can these panels be used with other chargers to power 48 volt systems ?

I want to charge a 48 volt battery and run a 48 volt system. I will also need an inverter from 48 volts to 110. Will these panels work in serial? And will they work with other controllers?
Asked by: EBiker
Hello, The short answer is Yes, 12V solar panels could be wired in series to product 48V, but the Amps remain the same. All Nature Power products, panels, inverters, controller seem best to be used together as 12V system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not intended for a marine environment This item is not the quality you are looking for. I wish I had been able to see it in the store before ordering but this sale was an online offer only. I now know why that was the case.
