Why you need a solar controller

When you use a solar panel, and want to transfer the solar energy store to the battery or use it to charge your mobile, or lunch a lamp.

Then you may need a solar charge controller to transfer the energy , and protect the battery will not over charge to damage.

First, you many need to check the battery voltage, norV mally, the battery voltage is 12V/24V. this is the safe voltage for human. but now. the 36V 48V and 60V, even 72V battery , they with more efficient usage. and also , the battery voltage should math with the solar panel voltage.

12V Float 14.2V (defaul, adjustable) 12.0—15.0
12V Discharge Stop10.7V (defaul, adjustable) 9.0—11.5V
12V Discharge Reconnect12.5V (defaul, adjustable)  11.0—13.0V
24V Float28.4V (defaul, adjustable) 24.0—29.0V
24V Discharge Stop19.0V (defaul, adjustable) 18.0—22.0V
24V Discharge Reconnect22.0V (defaul, adjustable) 22.0—26.0V
36V Float42.0V (defaul, adjustable) 36.0—45.0V
36V Discharge Stop30.0V (defaul, adjustable) 27.0—33.0V
36V Discharge Reconnect38.0V (defaul, adjustable) 36.0—42.0V
48V Float56.0V (defaul, adjustable) 48.0—60.0V
48V Discharge Stop40.0V (defaul, adjustable) 36.0—44.0V
48V Discharge Reconnect50.0V (defaul, adjustable) 48.0—56.0V
60V Float71.0V (defaul, adjustable) 60.0—75.0V
60V Discharge Stop50.0V (defaul, adjustable) 45.0—55.0V
60V Discharge Reconnect63.0V (defaul, adjustable) 60.0—70.0V

This is the description of the 90W flexible solar panel.

And when you choose the solar panel, and the battery, you may need to pay attention to the description. to make sure their math with each other.
