    A:  I do not sure a question... But if you want to know how to join the panels.... Harbor friehgt sells a hub for seventeen dollars...that excepts that panels plug and has ports for five panels.... I run a similar set up and it has worked fine

      A:  All you have to do is buy the 4 in bare end SAE wire, which has the same quick connect SAE connection as the solar panels, allows you to connect up to 4 panels. and connect the panels on one end, then extend to the solar input on the charge controller, really simple. for information on where to buy the wire, please call Nature power tech support and customer service line at 1800-588-0590.

        Q:I have a Ford Focus Electric can it be used to charge?
        by|Jul 19, 2022

        Answer This Question

        A:  Not directly. You would need a converter to either turn this DC power output to 120v or 240v AC for charging. The other issue maybe that the power output on a single panel maybe too small.. the car controls the charging for level 1 and level 2 charging through on board converter and it might try and draw more power than this unit can supply  causing the converter to  trip. If you are looking for a stand alone solution this is not it.

          A:  if your car runs on a battery, then it should charge it. how fast? that not my expertise, it does however charge my camper battery in an hour. it is a 12-volt auto battery

          by|Jul 24, 2022

            A:  You cannot use this to charge your vehicle, if you set up your whole off grid solar system with inverter with 120 pure sine plug in, you might be able to do it that way, but that would be a very inefficient way to charge your vehicle. As far as connecting directly to the car battery, it is a NO, you risk damaging the battery. Please feel free to contact Nature Power tech support for any additional questions. 1800-599-0590.

            by|Jul 19, 2022

              A:  No you can not  charge  an electric vehicle with this panel. You would need at least 1200 watts. 

              by|Jul 22, 2022

                A:  No

                by|Jul 22, 2022

                  A:  No this model is primarily for recharging 12V batteries in a RV, or smaller Off Grid solar set up.

                    Q:I have 2 180w panels. What size controller do I need, and how many batteries would be best? Can you hook them directly to a power bank, and what size would be best?

                    1 Answer
                    Answer This Question

                    A:  You will need to upgrade the controller to at least a 30A. You can connect kit to as many batteries as you like, 2 x 180W panels should fully charge 4 batteries 100Ah each by sundown. For any additional questions, please call Nature Power customer service phone number at 1800-588-0590.

                      I bought this panel to charge the battery on my camper, but its primary use so far has been to provide power for a small cabin using a power inverter. Take it out of the box and plug it into the charge controller and hook it up to the battery. Much better and more efficient in full sun of course, but still generates power on cloudy days. Enough for small light, radio, and charging batteries. Very happy with the purchase.

                      I haven’t installed them yet but five stars on price alone. They are going to be in my cargo trailer/camper conversion. I will update in a few weeks.

                            Light Weight, easy to handle, I tested the panel in my garage under LED lighting & it produced 12v-14v.
