The solar panel has arrived. I've given it the once over a couple of things worry me, the build quality, which although not terrible is not great but it was very cheap, the fact it was supplied with a cigarette lighter plug which had a 13amp 240v fuse in it, and finally that when facing the sun shining through a tree, so not optimum, the panel produced 19.6v.
I understand that if the battery is over 35 Ah the panel does not require a charge controller, mines 77Ah so it should cope OK.
I've a few more things to check on it before fitting, I will keep you posted.
