  2. So if I did this with a 300 watt inverter with 300 watts solar panels at
    17 volts it would fry it right looking to be able to run a inverter right
    from solar so that when my batteries are fully charged I don’t have to
    drain on them while there is still sun out. I understand that my battery’s
    can’t be charged fast because that will lower there life. So again I’m
    looking to be able to run my rv on the sunlight during the day and then
    batteries when there is no sun… If you could help me that would be great
    thank you!!

  3. im looking at wire from the panel to the inverter.. somehow it bothers me
    that the connection you made might get short (spark)… :) make it safe
    next time…

  4. This unscientific connection,You have to add a solar controller and
    batteries, will be stable

  5. my friend your video is really i want to know from you please,i
    have 70 watt solar panel in my home with battery and charger.i am using
    that for lights only during load shading .now i like to improve it to 200
    watt. what i need now.and may i use my led tv 32″ from direct solar by
    using inverter that you shown us.

  6. I got 20 Watts Monocrystalline panel and 12V 7ah Battery and 500 Watts
    What are the Appliances that i can run with this thing.i use 15W light Bulb
    but it runs only like for just two a bit dissapointed.

  7. How many yrs using CD r king solar panel polycrystalline

    By Jepoy Balanza on Sep 16, 2014

  8. I tried also this experiment and it really works well but as you said it
    will shorten the life of the inverter I stop doing it and use battery to
    store energy then use the inverter..

  9. Mine won’t accept more than 15 volts because that’s overvoltage. It shuts
    off automatically (as it should). You need to install a voltage regulator
    between the inverter and solar panel, then it will be fine.

  10. i like the idea of mr. hough. but since the the battery is connected to the
    solar panel , is it posible to add a switch that will trip off incase the
    battery s full charge & vice versa

  11. hi! i’m thinking of purchasing some solar panels for our house. We don’t
    have a lot of appliances, i’m thinking of buying 2 250watt solar panels
    from cdr king. What could these 2 solar panels produce to help lower our
    electricity bill?

    By Herbert Ortega on Sep 16, 2014

  12. you saved my arse. Thanks mate !! 

    By Snow Angel on Sep 16, 2014

  13. id like to watch your video clip, because my dad was planning to buy solar
    panel in cdr king. i want to catch up more videos how does it really works
    the product of cdr king solar panels… thanks..

  14. without battery inverter ?

    By vijay ankam on Sep 16, 2014

  15. Put a meter on the solar panel output while the inverter is under load. You
    will see that the panel is not putting out 20 volts, it is now down to
    around 13-14 volts which is safe for the inverter. Solar panels have a
    rating called VMP which is the point at which it can produce the most power
    in watts.

  16. thanks alot phil

  17. regardless of it being okay to connect an inverter directly to solar cells,
    the question has been answered; for, inevitably some rookie will ask, and,
    moreover, there exists a thing that is “A Priory knowledge”

    Liked the video

  18. thats nice boss.

    By Abdul Karim on Sep 16, 2014

  19. phil how to compute battery hour for how long it charge at solar??? and how
    to compute the usage time of the battery depend on watts i consume?

    By Patrick Baliuag on Sep 16, 2014

  20. maybe u can put a 12volts fix positive regulator on solar panel so that the
    output of solar panel is now fix at 12vlt

    By Patrick Baliuag on Sep 17, 2014

  21. Hay, stupid question, but its easier to just ask than troll through endless
    solar power research: can a battery supply a load as well as receive a
    charge from solar panels? I think not, as the charging and discharging are
    two different circuits!? I only think of this due to your video, and by
    adding a battery to your proof of concept the ‘direct’ power usage will be
    lost to battery charging… set me straight. P.s. love the background music :)

  22. can i run a 100watts inverter directly on 10watt solar panel?

    By Patrick Baliuag on Sep 17, 2014

  23. can i use a 500watt inverter on a 10watt panel and a 3amp battery?

    By nosffej521 on Sep 17, 2014

  24. wow!

    By Patrick Baliuag on Sep 17, 2014

  25. Hi I have a generator producing high amps. The max amp is 60a tolerance
    for a charge controller in Singapore. Are there charge controllers in the
    US with higher ampere tolerance like 100 amps and higher?

    By Constantine Joseph on Sep 17, 2014

  26. sir i want to setup 500 watt solar panel now please tel me,if i have 500
    watt solar panel and one 100 ah battery and one charge controller,one 500
    watt inverter dc to ac than what else i need and how many watt ac may i get
    from it.because i like to use my water pump from this pump is 400

    By Monir Ahmed on Sep 17, 2014

  27. can u run a 115V window ac ??

  28. Nice presentation.

    By GeneralButtNaked on Sep 17, 2014

  29. Hi mark how are those 8D batteries doing do you think they go 5 years and
    on average how far down do you discharge them.

  31. Hi there. I live in the middle of farm land, and no gas supply to my home
    (105 year old cottage), with all electric heating etc, my electric bills
    are rather expensive each month. So i was thinking about building this sort
    of setup and running it in my front porch. with multiple batteries in
    Parallel for extended run times per charge (5 or 6 batteries).. with a
    5000w inverter, which is plenty enough to power all my electronic items
    during the evenings when its mostly used…
    What sort of Whattage solar panel would i require to charge the batteries?
    Also, what does the whattage actually do in this case? does a higher
    whattage panel charge the batteries quicker?
    And could i like multiple solar panels together to achieve higher whattage?
    IE: 5x 100w panels to make 500w..

  33. I was thinking about buying that battery ( I think that is a heavy
    equipment battery). How does it hold up to cold?

  37. thanks for this video!

    By momstheword11 on Sep 17, 2014

  38. Mark, does the wattage of the panels have to match the wattage of the
    charge controller? im thinking of setting up a basic unit say 150watt of
    panels to run the fridge, freezer and other small load devices in the
    laundary. great videos very informative

  39. What guage wire do you recommend for a four battery system? I see 4 gauge
    in automotive

  40. Hi, Mark..
    Need a bit of Help please..
    I intend to build some solar Panels of around 1000 watts on my house. I
    start buying slowly solar cells and other parts to stack up with my
    I have some questions:
    How many AMPS my Charge Controller must be? Is 30 Amps too small for 1000
    watts solar panel? Your CC the white one, how big it is ?
    How many Watts the Inverter must be for a 1000 watts solar panel? 1200
    Watts is too small?
    and last question..
    How many batteries I need ( 12V ) for this system? 4 are enough?

    Thank you indeed..

  41. hi mark. i have 3 40 watt solar pannels colmans connected individully to 7
    amp charge controllers not sure if i need them each connected to thier own
    controller then i connected these to a 1 set of battery clamps that came
    with the pannels then went to connect the clams to a deep cycle 12v marine
    battery i connect the red positive 1st then went to connect the negitive
    black and stopped because it was sparking if you have tome please email me
    any help you can recommend thanks kathy

  45. I meant how many amps per battery?

    By se7encapadon on Sep 17, 2014

  46. What type of batteries are those

    By se7encapadon on Sep 17, 2014

  47. that was pretty simple. thanks for sharing
