This item allows the use of up to 127 watts of solar panels. A charge controller is not needed for any solar panels that produce less than 15watts of power. This item will work with any of the solar panels sold by Northern Tool that is 127 watts or less.

Question

How does the controller lower voltage?

Is this a linear controller or a dc-dc converter? A dc-dc converter takes the extra voltage and turns it into current. Linear just turns the extra votage into heat and wastes power Which is this one?

You would not need to disconnect the charge controller or solar panel when charging the batteries with a generator or other power source. You should leave the charger and solar panel connected all the time.

This charge controller includes a few feet of wire for each side of the connection. It includes two leads of bare wire to be spliced with the solar panel and two leads with ring connectors for the battery terminals.

Question

Do I need a larger solar panel?

I have a 20watt panel and a 8.5amp controller charging a deep cycle marine battery. For about 2 months worked fine. Now it doesn't charge past 11.5 volts. The output from the controller reads about 19 volts.

A larger or more solar panels would improve the charging rate. A 20 watt panel is only producing 1.6 amps. Maxing out the charge controller with 127.5 watts of solar panels would provide 10.6 amps and would charge the battery at a quicker rate.

This solar charge controller is 2 3/4" W x 4 1/4" H x 13/16" D. This solar charge controller only has one mounting hole and it is the kind were you slip it over the head of the bolt/screw and pull down, and it is located in the top middle of the charge controller.
