« on: January 23, 2013, 11:07:48 PM »
wandering thru my favorite thrift   shop--stumbled upon a solar controller [mark 20]  3 bucks...
not sure if it works?  i was thinkin of hookin it up to a 12v batt charger then the outputs to a batt...
   my sister has a 5watt. solar panel..not sure if it would work with that..?
how much input voltage can this thing handle ?-says 12volts on it--so i guess it would not work with my wind turbine unless i have a way to regulate the voltage output...........
     
                           
just do it

This might be a little help if you have not found it.

As far as wind turbine, rather unlikely it will work.
Trying to make power from alternative energy any which way I can.
Just to abuse what I make. (and run this site)

$3 is a score!

Will not work with wind.

"Back in the day", I considered using them for solar.
The price was a little more than what I thought were better units at the time, but a lot of dealers and installers went with them.  I know there are a lot of them still working around this area, though mostly the 4 or 8A units.

I do not know about the larger units like that one, since an 8A array around here is still consided fairly large.  Not a whole lot of 16A arrays around here over than 5 years old... if you know what I mean.

thanks for the manual-wolvenar....looked around the web for that-coundent find it...
hey ghurd..kinda figured it wouldnt work for wind-needs a dump load..or the mill would free spin....might check it out tomorrow --if i cant find a use for it --maybe trade  it for one of your
charge controlers?
just do it

Damn, that file is taking forever to download here?

Do NOT mistake me for any kind of "expert".
