Guest post- Simple Solar power for Amateur Radio
As Gen. Patton once opined, “ a good plan executed today, is better than a perfect plan next week, ” so I just went out and “did it live,” vs trying to be exact in the math and stuff, thereby getting
hung up in the weeds.
difference. I picked up 2ea
Wel-Bilt Polycrystalline Solar Panel —20 Watt, 19 1/8in.L x 13 1/2in.W x 1in.D from Northern Tool on sale for 70.00 each..
It has a digital LCD readout and lights to let you know status of charging and float…
Wiring the panels to this unit must be done in parallel vs series, which is not an issue for my needs, so I bought some NOCO ISCC2 5-Way SAE Adapter Connector from Amazon for 6.00
each and a Battery Tender 081-0069-6 Ring Terminal Harness with Black Fused 2-Pin Quick Disconnect Plug, for 5.00 each, and this is connected to battery terminals.
