    I think that the solar panel controller passed away sum time over the weekend :cry:seems that there is no power coming Frome it the battery's started to drain right down when I opened it up the circuit board seems to have lots of corrosion on it white stuff looks like crystallised salts
    got the battery's on on charge thought the hook up now to charge them back up
    seen this on do you think it will do the job all reply's in lay mans terms
    simple yes no

    if your panel is less than 10amps then it will be ok.

    Personally i would buy an MPPT controller.

    Far superior output in less than perfect sunlight.

    Open circuit it will be around 21 volts in good light, connected to a regulator it will be around 17/18 in good light
