Re: Solar Charger Recommendations?

A couple of cheap 80 watt solar panels and a Sunsaver MPPT solar charge
controller from Morningstar.

Make sure to install fuses or breakers on the controller's outputs and
panel's outputs.

The MPPT type charge controller will get you an additional 5 to 15% charging
a day.

Subject: [ap-gto] Solar Charger Recommendations?

I will be at a couple 5-night-long star parties running Mach1 mount,
focuser, SBIG camera and laptop from about an 80 amp-hour AGM battery. I
expect I can get at least 2-3 nights from the battery but not sure about 5.
Any recommendations from the gallery on a reasonable solar charger to get me
through the week?
