It is supplied with an 4A charge controller, all the necessary cable (5m), connectors and detailed installation instructions. A universal stand (Order Code L25BR) is also available. It quickly and easily fits to the panels enabling them to be used "free standing", angled to suit the time of day/year and conditions.*Please note: An invertor is required to power or charge 240Vac appliances - not included.

Given that Watss is a composite of Volts and Amps and that the V rating is 12V it is quite simple to calculate the typical current (A). See previous answers for examples.

How long would this take to charge a car battery? And what additional connectors would I need to set that up ...
Asked by: Anonymous
what is the capacity of a battery? This provides a peak power output of 60W (this is in blazing sunshine at the height of the day) it typically provides around 45W on average. dividing Watts by Volts gives Amps so 45 / 12 = 3.75. So over the course of a typical summers day with an average of 14 hours sunlight this would provide 52.5A of charge (3.75 x 14). If the battery is flat and has a capacity of 40Ah this means it will be fully charged after around 11 hours.

60w / 12v = 5A 65Ah / 5A = 13 so 13 hours

How long would it take this product to charge a 12V battery from flat? How is this calculated?
Asked by: Anonymous
capacity of battery in mAh divided by charge rate of solar panel in A. A can be found by dividing the power W by the voltage V
