This system is designed to send power to a 12V deep cycle battery bank. To find out if this will provide enough power to run your devices for the desired amount, please email support@grapesolar.com

Can this item power the water warmer in the chicken coop?

Asked by Ellen July 26, 2020

It is a 100 watt panel. That means in full sun at noon under a very clear sky it generates as much power as a 100 watt light bulb uses. That is not a lot of heat. Also it is 12 volts direct current. I don't know what type current your heater uses. I would guess it is a 120 volt device.

Asked by Haribo December 6, 2018

Answers

Thank you for the details, that's exactly what's needed. The power estimate for those lights is 5.5 watts per foot, so 33 watts total. Running it for 4 hours a day totals 132 watt-hours. A single 100 watt panel, with ideal placement (facing due south at a 30 degree angle with no shade) should produce around 290 watt-hours per day in December in your location. Although you would need to pair this basic kit with a 50 amp-hour deep cycle battery and a small pure sine wave inverter to run that AC light, the panel should provide enough power to the battery to allow 4 hours per day of use.

Can I use this kit with a regular car battery

Answers

Yes, it will work fine with a car battery in keeping it charged up to prevent self discharge. Don't deep cycle a car battery as it won't last very long in this application. Golf car batteries will work much better.

What size solar panel and Battery needed for a garage?

Asked by Curious May 8, 2018

Answers

The type of usage you mention needs a lot more than this purchase could provide. You would need a much bigger system and a DC to AC inverter. You should look up articles on the internet on how to size a solar installation. New England Solar is one place that has sizing information.

Would this be ideal for a 10x10 storage shed? Just need lighting when putting up holiday boxes etc. That's it.

As per the answer below, you can pair this system with a deep cycle battery and use the load control output of the controller to run small 12-volt lights.

I tested it myself and got good results.
I bought this unit while it was special sale. I tested 2 times the 1st time during smoky sky (CA has wildfire), no sun around 4PM and saw current flowed into battery around 120mA at ~14V. The 2nd time when I got good morning sun light around 11AM. This time I tested with no load and with 60 watts light bull. At no load I saw current flowed into battery was 1.15A at ~14V. With load I saw current flow into battery was 3.25A while current flowed to load was ~4.8A. Based on this I can tell solar panel supplied 3.25A X 14V = 45.5 watts at 60 watts load. The battery is 35A hour mighty max. It is hard to say how much more sunlight to get more current. But it was about 50% of 100 watts. Conclusion: All works but the power from the panel is 50% less than spec. I can use this for router and monitor and laptop during power cut off (PG&E). However, I need one more panel to provide more power.

Excellent quality. Connectors and hardware are top notch. I installed this panel on my detached garage to power 4 recessed LED lights. The controller is easy to understand. 2 USB ports to charge phones, tablets or speakers. The only con is the cable provided is 16 ft long, it needs to be cut in half to be used. So if you are mounting the panel more than 8 foot away buy a second cable.
