Is there a way to use these panels without batteries to use AC battery Chargers?

Asked by Navneet July 25, 2020

Answer

The solar panels always need a battery to provide power to the DC loads(inverter). you will need a battery and an inverter. The solar panels are not designed to supply DC power directly to the DC loads(inverter) but through a battery in the middle (in addition to the fluctuations in the sunlight condition, solar panels have high output resistance that avoids a continued and regulated supply of power demanded by the DC loads. [please feel free to contact Nature Power tech support line at 1800-588-0590 for any more questions or concerns.

How can it be 180W on a 12V, 9.51A (from specifications). Maybe it is a 19V panel?

Thanks for your question. 12 volt solar chargers are always 18 volts but marketed as 12 volt solar charging systems. It is an industry standard. The voltage fluctuates and drops down once connected to the charge controller and a load. Thanks. Nature Power Tech Support Team

Answer

Yes, you can use this panel with our 110W kits, connecting both panels by using a 2-in-1 SAE connector. However, an upgrade on the charge controller would be needed. the minimum charge controller needed connecting those 2 panel, with a total output of 290W would be at lease 20A charge controller or higher. Please feel free to contact Nature power tech support at 1800-588-0590 for any more questions.

What kind of battery should we get to store the collected electricity?

Anything will work, lead acid as long as you keep up with the water levels, AGM's are install and forget for 8 years, Gel cell are finicky, LiPo is a waste of money.

The overview says it's 12 volts; but, the description says 18 volts; so, which one is it? Also; c...

TO fully charge a 12volt battery you have to actually take the battery voltage upwards of 14.7 volts. The higher the voltage the panel is the better at charging it will be. You can use a 36 volt panel to charge a 12 volt battery, the battery is a capacitor and will only accept its proper voltage. But since it has a charge controller thats what it does and it shuts down the panel when the batteries are fully charged. So yes you can put 4 of these in series and the properly sized charge controller will neck that down to a proper voltage for your batteries.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your Nature Power 180 watt Solar Kit. You are correct that the charge controller has no display, its sole purpose is to protect the battery from overcharging and to regulate the voltage. it sounds like you might be a little confused with regards to how power is rated. You are correct that the open circuit voltage of most 12 volt solar panels fluctuates from 12-23 volts in sunlight. Once you connect the charge controller, that voltage will drop to around 14.4 volts which is about 35-40% less than the open circuit voltage. This is not the power (Amperage) but simply the open circuit voltage. I hope this helps but you can also reach us at cs@rdkproducts.com for more help in troubleshooting or making the most out of your system. Thanks for being a Nature Power Customer.
