    Sunforce 7 amp Solar Controller, January 6, 2008

    This review is from: Sunforce 7 Amp Charge Controller (Misc.)

    Bad:
    Really cheap quality. Included instructions don’t provide enough information. Website is just as un-informative. Cheap connector wires (low current), and is not equipped with screw-on terminal junctions.

    Good: Product works as advertised. Amazinlgly “regulates” the voltage to the required amount so as not to overcharge the battery. Beware though, in order to test the actual output voltage, you must apply a load on the battery end of the controller BEFORE. Failing this, the output can register volts as high as 20 volts !!! Apparently applying an actual load causes the controller to output the correct voltage range – lucky me, cause I bought 4 units ! The LEDS alternately flickers (fast for good voltage input and slow for low to no voltage on solar panel). The manual did NOT state the order of LED flashes.
    (1) Fast LED flashes – good voltage/current
    (2) Slow LED flashes – low/no voltage/current
    (3) steady Green – fully charged
    (4) steady amber – possible no load OR really low voltage/current

    I recommend you go out and buy ’em. The are a really good deal and does the job at the best price ! I use them in Jamaica, to provide my appliances with power during power outages (very frequent here). Used with solar panels and DC to AC inverter, of course. Considered using a generator, but too many accidents here with generators, too noisy, too bulky, and during hurricane aftermath, fuel is a problem. Solar is freely available, so it was the BEST option all round.

    Hope this helps all readers !

    Two wires to the battery and two wires to the solar panel. It doesn’t get much simplier than that. Worked flawlessly out of the box. Yellow LED indicates charging while green LED indicates the battery is charged.

    I have this unit connect to two automotive 12V batteries with three 15W panels connect to it. So far the charger works as advertised by preventing battery drain when the sun goes down and charging while the panels are producing at least 13 volts. It is pretty much an install and forget item. Additionally I have those same two batteries tied into one of my trucks 12V power points so that the batteries charge when the vehicle is running by way of the alternator. Even with this double charging set up, the charge controller appears unphased and shows a charge light in the daytime and has on two occasions indicated a fully charged green light.

    I have heard a lot about solar panels and I want to know how these solar panels works and is it really possible to generate electricity using solar panels. And what is the cost of getting a solar panel installed?

  • Eartha Drown says:

    Hello from SO TX.. I would like to know if anyone out there has SOLAR PANELS on their home?
    I have a 850 sq ft. house. I called Austin to a company that offers panels and installation. The cost $18,000.00, for 10 panels . The rep said we would save about 21 to 25% on our electric bill /mo. We use approximately 980 kw/mo. Our bill is around $140.00 / mo…I really don’t think that’s a good enough savings. We figure it would take 25 years to recoup our investment.
    And where we live in TX it does not offer any incentives. The gov. allows you a $2000.00 tx break.

  • Javi Aguirre Zazueta says:

    I plan to buy solar panels of the following configuration:
    Sun Force 39110 / 123 watt – 7 amps

    To run through an inverter, to produce the 110v I need to run the pump during the day.
    The pump is 110v / 7.5 amps / 0.5 HP

    My question is, how many solar panels would I need to run the pump?

  • Dr Grant Neil says:

    I want to do a little project this year, and that is to make solar panels of my own. I want to see the pros and cons of how effective solar panels are. Also what are good websites where I may obtain more information on blueprints of how they are made.
