TESTING

Post by Polly on Sun 9 Oct 2016 - 23:00

Hia

Right as some of you know I don't use the tv unless I am on electric

So I thought I would try a little experiment

If I plug my tv into my 12 volt and run it with my areil switched on and maybe a spotlight which as a led bulb in or a flouresent which is LED
If I do this in the evening so no sun on the solar

I have one solar panel
Two x 75 new leisure batteries

My amp (think it's that) registers at 13
During the day one light is green and the other flashes green (to tell me it's charging)
When dark just one shows green

Right how low can I let my amp meter go down

Don't want to flatten my lesuire batteries

So would I be looking at 12 or 11 or even less.

Then the solar panel in daylight will charge my batteries up

Would I get 3 or 4 hours without flattening my batteries completely
Would they charge up the next day if dull or overcast
All appliances would be on gas

Try not to let my batteries get lower than 11.8 as everything will switch off if they get lower than that
 Should get 3 -4 hour TV - usually the pump that drains things the most - so don't have too many showers lol

I don't let mine go below 12.2
Will charge up during the day on solar but will just take longer on a dull day
