I have been struggling with this forever. All I want to do is use my 5v panel to charge my 1.5v NiHM triple A batteries. Seems like it kills every battery, they start out low at 1.0V and then after I use the panel with + to + - to -, with a diode on the negative lead.What am I doing wrong?
Not sure what all you got for the $250.00 but if it was just 4 solar panels and the charge controller you paid a bit to much. Those appear to be Harbor Freight panels from their kit. http://www.harborfreight.com/45-watt-solar-panel-... It usually runs about $135.00 when on sale and it includes 3 - 15 watt panels, charge controller and some lights. I have 2 of these kits set-up connected to 3 RV/Marine deep cycle batteries from Les Schwab Tires, I plan to add some more panels but am going to get larger wattage ones since this only runs about 4 days of night time use to run my Cpap machine, a 60 watt light bulb and a small charger that puts out 2 USB outlets for charging my phone and spare "30,000mAh Dual USB Portable Solar Panel Power Bank" that I carry when away from home, the AC stuff is running off a 2,000/4,000 watt inverter from Harbor Freight, after 4 days I fire up my small generator and run it for 8 hours or so powering a battery charger while my friends and I either watch a few movies or play D&D.
