Questions & Answers

How long would this take to charge a cell phone?

Asked by: D125
Yes, But! You can only use this kit to charge a cell phone if... are you ready? What you also need, besides the solar kit. You need a 12 volt battery, 12 volt 7 or 10 ah only for charging cell phones and android or apple tablets and using tiny 12 volt led lights like a 411 led bulb 12 volt deep cycle battery like 55 ah to 115 ah class 24, 27, 29 or 31 <--- one of those You need a 12 volt outlet with a fuse. That looks like the one in a vehicle, boat or camper. You need a charger for your cell phone that plugs into the 12 volt outlet, that looks like the one in a vehicle, boat or camper. You see, the charge controller puts out higher than 12 volts, this way it can charge the 12 volt battery. Your cell phone charger that runs off from 12 volts, would run off the battery. The solar kit, will replace the amps or in your cell phones case, the milliamps that are used. So the solar kit is not meant to charge anything but 12 volt batteries. Home Depot sells a good selection of batteries, cables, inverters and connectors. The kit is expandable, so you can add more of the same type solar panels to the charge controller, up to 7 total to that charge controller. You can also add more than one battery and an inverter, to run 120 volt house items.

what types of 12-volt batteries will it charge? how useful is it for "household" use?

what types of 12-volt batteries will it charge? how useful is it for "household" use?
Asked by: Rita
Long Answer first, Short Answer at the bottom. This is from the manufacturer; Any solar panel that is rated 12W or higher requires the use of a charge controller to regulate the current and voltage to the battery. Charge controllers are able to prevent 12V batteries from overcharging or discharging, and reduce overall maintenance to help prolong battery life. A simple two-LED display shows that the solar panel is functioning and whether your battery is charging or fully charged. Choose this 8A plug-n-play charge controller for up to 120W of solar charging. They work with all 12V batteries and solar panels. You can connect up to seven Nature Power 18W solar panels to one 8A solar charge controller. 7 X 18 watts = 126 watts 7 X 1 Amp = 7 Amps This is estimates by me, not the manufacturer. I use 15 watts versions with 0.824 amps I will say if a charge controller has a cut off of 14 to 14.2 volts, it should be able to be used on Flooded Lead Acid Batteries, and on AGM, the sealed Glass Mat batteries. I would prefer to be able to set the cut off on charging of Flooded Lead Acid batteries at 13.7 to 13.9, but 14 to 14.2 should be ok. This small charge controller, to my knowledge can not be adjusted. We use this kit in the 15 watt panel with a 7 amp charge controller on our 25 foot sailboat. We have a dual purpose deepcycle/starting marine battery. It is about a 75 amp hour battery. I would say it is a medium grade battery of it's type. Our battery is used for cranking our 10 hp 2 stoke motor, the bow light, the deck light, the anchor light, the two cabin lights, cockpit light and the Raymarine Dragonfly 7 Pro Chart Plotter with Sonar. Twice I went to the boat while it was trailered and not used for more than a month and found the battery drained. I had no solar charge controller or solar panel on the boat at that time. This kit is easily capable of maintaining the battery when we are not using the boat. Some of the boats lights are now LED and only draw about 0.25 to 0.33 amps each. The solar panel is about 0.824 Amps, with sunny weather. This means it can easily recharge the battery, if we use equal to, or just under 1 amp per hour of lights, at night. I have studied solar systems for a couple years and have installed a 45 watt system in our camper, that is a 3 Amp system. Meaning the solar panels put out 45 watts at 3 Amps, but the Charge Controller is a 10 Amp Charge Controller. I can add two more sets of the 45 watt/3 Amp solar panels to the charge controller. The camper has four 7 Amp Hour, 12 volt, sealed lead acid batteries. They are for LED lighting and for charging our cell phones and tablets. The batteries are usually used for opening electric gates. We got those batteries form Home Depot. The solar panels are a set of three 15 watt solar panels, that is a total of 45 watts. In our house, we have a battery bank of four Flooded Lead Acid, 115 Amp Hour Deepcycle batteries. These are Marine/RV Rated batteries class 31, that we purchased from Home Depot. We use a battery charger that is plugged in to an AC outlet and runs off our regular electric. We run a charge cycle about 1 time a week for a few hours. We only run an alarm clock, a 9 volt fan and charge cell phones and tablets and portable DVD players off from them. We have 12 volt lighting that we could use if the power was to go off, but we do not use them. We have six 15 watt solar panels that we can use, if needed to charge, or maintain the batteries. That is 90 Watts of Solar Panels at 6 Amps total. The charge controller is a 10 Amp charge controller. All our charge controllers are PWM Charge Controllers. Home depot sells both PWM and MPPT charge controllers. We use PWM, because our solar systems are not large, and are not used for high power drain items like refrigerator, freezer or microwaves. Our Solar panels are also kind of close in proximity to the battery banks. All very good reasons to use more affordable PWM Charge Controllers. Now we also have a second battery bank, just like the first, but it is a standby battery bank. If we needed, we can tie them together for an eight battery bank. This would allow us to use any one of our inverters. We have a 3000 watt inverter, a 2000 watt inverter, a 750 watt inverter, a 450 watt inverter, a 250 watt inverter, a 125 watt and a 100 watt inverter. Why so many inverters? Because you should use an inverter that is close to the draw you need. It is inefficient to run a small window or desk fan and maybe a 5 watt LED night light, off from a inverter that is above 250 watts. So we would not run a combined energy draw of 275 watts off form the 1,000 or 2,000 watt inverter. We would use the 450 watt, or run the fan off the 250 watt inverter and the light off a 100 watt inverter. Home Depot sells a wide range of Power Inverters. Your Solar panel or solar panels, should match the daily draw you will be using, plus about 25% to 30% more. This means if you will be drawing 200 watts off and on during the day, you should have "minimum", a total solar panel array of 2 X 100 watt = about 200 watts @ 8 to 10 amps. The solar charge controller should be one that is more than capable of handling it. You really do not want an 8 amp charge controller to be running 8 to 10 amps of solar panels on three 100 amp hour batteries and you are drawing off 130 to 200 amps a day. I am sorry I post so much, but your question deserves a complete answer. The short answer to your question is, Yes! This kit can be used on a house, but it can also be used on a 45 story sky scrapper building in New York City, as long as it is maintaining, not more than one or two 55 Amp Hour to 115 Amp Hour batteries and those batteries are being used as an emergency low energy draw lighting like 0.25 to 1 amp per hour and a small 6 volt or 9 volt fan. When the power is out for only a day or so. This will charge everything from Sealed Lead acid, 12 volt, 7 or 10 amp hour batteries, to 55 to 110 amp hour AGM, and 55 to 115 amp hour Flooded Lead Acid batteries. As long as you are only drawing off 1 amp or less per hour for emergency nigh lights and something like a small 6 to 9 volt van, using a 12 volt to 6 volt or to 9 volt reducer or a few 5 volt USB fans, with a car adapter with USB out. Home Depot, at the time of this post sells a 12 volt car adapter with dual 12 volt out and three USB out. A small note. Anything you buy, to plug into a 12 volt system for your house, boat or camper, you need to install the 12 volt sockets with fuses and or 12 volt breaker panel. How else are you going to plug stuff in? Believe it or not, some people will just buy a solar panel, charge controller, battery and nothing else, because they were not told to buy it. I have seen people only buy the solar panel and charge controller, no battery, no inverter or 12 volt outlets, and think they are going to run their house off from it. WARNING; You do not want to short out your system by crossing cables wrong or touching cables accidently. I have seen people weld 1 inch steel with a car battery, jumper cables and a few quarters, in the woods, to fix a busted tie rod end. Always wear safety glasses and gloves. Home Depot sells plenty of them. Do a lot of research and higher a professional if you can. Your local Home Depot Loves you and Loves America and Loves Professional Electricians, and will gladly help you find someone in your area, to do the job that you are not sure of. I do not work for Home Depot, I am a Home Depot customer, my wife has a Home Depot credit card and I have one too. Home Depot staff are very knowledgeable. Many of them I have talked to are retires electricians, plumbers and other construction professions. You could say that I am a very happy Home Depot customer.

Will this plug into the solar plug on the side of my RV???

Asked by: Pauline
If your RV has a Ecco or some other Solar plug that is the standard RV outside plug, you would need the matching plug. We recently purchased this kit and ours came with the plug in a little bag that was packed with the solar panel. It also came with battery clamps.

Can I use this on my might mule gate opener that has a 12 volt lawn mower battery? Does it shut off when charged?

Asked by: Joy
Hi Joy, Yes, this panel will work well as it is designed for 12V charging. It does come with a charge controller to help regulate charging to your battery. It will stop charging when your battery is fully charged.
