This is not going to power anything it will however charge your batteries and how much you run is what your battery is capable of. On a perfect day you may get 90% thats 90 Watts per hour hope that helps, I have three. They work great.

This is not recommended. The panel should be mounted at an angle close to the angle of your latitude, and the charge controller should be used with a deep-cycle battery (not a starter battery).

Yes. This even works on cloudy days and rainy days. In fact, it even picks up street lights at night. However, if it’s left on at night, it will drain the battery some because there’s not enough light to charge the battery.

To extend an additional 15 feet, buy a pair of these: homedepot.com/p/Grape-Solar-15-ft-Extension-Cable-GS-MC4-15/204074548. It's just the same cable that comes with the kit you cut in half for the 7.5 ft pigtails. They all easily snap together. They more you add, the less efficient. Grape's manual says the controller can accept a voltage drop of 3%. You may need to use larger gauge wire if over 15 ft.

Ignore the community answer below, amperage has very little to do with this question unless your pump is designed to run on direct variable-DC input from a solar panel. If your pump runs on AC power, you will need not just the panels, but also a charge controller, deep cycle battery (50 Ah minimum size), and inverter. If the pump runs on 12-volt DC power, you would need the panel, charge controller, and battery, but you could run the pump from the load control output of the controller. A single 100 watt panel should provide enough power to run that pump between 4-5 hours per day in that zip code during the summer months.

I noted in the video from the 200-Watt Kit that you could access outputs and other data from your...

Great kit solid quality, I use it on a pole shed to power 12 volt lighting works great. It charges a deep cycle battery that powers the lights, I have power inverter that I haven’t tied in yet, but that will happen soon as well. Great system only downside is it should come with the mounting kit. The attached photo is two 10 watt LEDS powered off the battery the panel charges daily.

The panel, charge controller and cables are working great. Temporary install but the panel is putting out 13.9 volts, the amperage is not quite up to where it should be. This is a temporary location and the angle is not correct but wanted to test it before I put it in a permanent location and angle.

• 5 stars: solar panel • 4 stars for the controller. Battery temperature is in Celsius (useless) instead of Fahrenheit with no option to change it. Battery level in controller does not match battery level when using a separate battery level indicator. • 5 stars for the directions to connect the solar panel to the controller and 12V deep-cycle battery. • 0 stars for no explanation of controller settings and their meanings. I had to email and call tech support to help me with several issues. Unfortunately, because of the Oregon governor’s orders, tech support was working from home with no phone calls. Gentleman from tech support was very patient and helpful by email, but it took more than a week to resolve some issues. The directions did not match what tech support said about when the USB port could be used.
