    Sunforce 7 amp Solar Controller, January 6, 2008

    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 !

    Hi,
    I got really interested in the whole concept of solar panels. I read a couple of articles and saw a few videos on how to convert solar energy to electricity, but what I want to know is how can I make the microwave work, only using solar panels?

    What I mean, is how many Volts, Watts, Amperes or any of these do I need to make the microwaves fully functional and how many big the solar panels need to be to absord enought energy?

    Thanks!

    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 live in El Salvador and want to buy solar panels to install in my home. I need to generate 50kw of electricity a month. There is a Sunforce kit that sells for $250 which states the following:
    •Max Output 60 Watts 4 Amps
    •Battery NOT included
    •Includes the following:
    1.4 x 15 Watt Amorphous Solar Panels
    2.Plastic PVC Frame for mounting panels
    3.12V DC Plug, Alligator Battery Clamps, Mounting screws & extra wiring
    4.4 in 1 wire connector so that all 4 panels can be wired together in an easy fashion
    5.12V DC Socket for powering 12V Products
    6.200 Watt Modified Sine Wave Inverter
    7.7 Amp Solar Charge Controller
    •Dimensions: (L x W x H) 41″ x 13 1/4″ x 16 1/4″
    104 x 33.5 x 41.5 cm
    Weight: 63.4 lbs

    Then there is the option of installing a 85watt Polycrystalline installed for $1000 dollars. Would this generate the amount of energy that I need? if not how many would I have to buy? I have 200 square feet of usable surface area which recieves 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Would I need to buy anything else to install the kit? Has anyone ever used a Sunforce product and are they any good. What are the pros and cons of the 2 systems? Can I connect 2 batteries to the sunforce system and what changes if any would I have to make if I did?

    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.

    Hi. I have got some SunForce solar panels and power inverters that I will be using in a project. I want to use just one solar panel for the invertor to save space, though, but it isn’t getting enough power. I don’t think that it is the panel, though, but the 7 amp controller that is causing the issue. Will getting a higher amp rated controller do the trick? If so, what controller do I need? I have 200W and 1500W inverters and my solar panels are 12v.

  • Maya Cross says:

    I was trying to figure out how solar panels work today and I found that electrons get displaced in 2 layers of a solar panel by photons coming from the sun to create power. If the electrons come from the solar panel and go into the electrical grid, how are they replaced in the solar panel? Wouldn’t the solar panel eventually lose all of its electrons and stop working? Electrons have mass, so wouldn’t the solar panel slowly deteriorate?

    I think solar energy is awesome and I really want to know how it works. Any help in enlightening me on this subject would great, thanks!

  • gottmilk0000 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?

    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?
