    OK, what are we looking at? At least 300 watts of solar connected in series I guess. You have some pretty low battery voltages what did you pull them down with and what battery bank are you?

    Ooo question questions.

    No I think the original format is a lot better, on my screen anyway!

    A plot over a single day would be interesting, with readings every 10 minutes or so. This would show, assuming a clear sky all day, what hours of the day are the useful ones. Done at different times of the year too! :)

    Hi Steve

    What are you running to get down to less than 12volts with a 480ah battery bank.

    That would do it I guess, you seem to be getting some decent amps/day of it though.
