Often a solar panel is attached to a battery as means for maintaining power during periods of no sun.
Energy generated by the solar panels is stored in a battery, typically Gel technology, such as Valen’s Valen ENDUROGEL range.
Gel is the recommended technology for this application as it has the ability to withstand the cyclic abuse.
The voltage output of the panel generally varies from the float voltage of the battery therefore a regulator is required to ensure the battery is not overcharged and consequently damaged. A wide range of Solar Regulators & Controllers available offering you a solution for a range of applications – please contact us for further details.
