    The HF panels are only 45 watts....you bump it down to 15w and get about 2.5 amps....you can keep a charge up....but it's not enough to bring a battery back from being wore down......Well you may given a month of sunny days....it just doesn't generate enough juice.

    A deep cycle battery is better for power use applications...due to the fact that they are meant to be taken down very low...then charged back to full. A typical car battery will be killed by doing so repetitively.

    With the battery bank, so do they make commerical batterys for this purpose or are you forced to kind of use deep cycle batteries?

    the HF set of cells make a decent maintainer.....but they will not work as a charger.

    Did a little welding job for the guy.....all the solar cells are intact.....in the process of wiring now.....to see what output really is.....

    Depending on what the output is....I may buy another PowerBright pure sine inverter....

    That's great, and for a 50.00 weld job. That's is going to be the score of the year .
