Whenever you are adding a battery to your solar panels system, you need a charge controller. When using a 12 volt battery, pick a 12V charge controller.
Just like any other charge regulator, a 12V charge controller protects the battery from panels' high voltage and overcharging. When the load of a battery drops below a certain point charge controller prevents its usage until it’s charged back up again. This prolongs the lifespan of the battery and ensures safety of your solar panel system.
Much like with an inverter, you can monitor the condition of your solar panel system with a 12v charge controller. It tells you the load of the battery, whether it’s being charged or rests, plus measures the voltage of panels.
A 12V solar charge controller can be either a PWM (pulse width modulation) type or an MPPT (maximum power point tracking) regulator.
A 12 volt charge controller goes in between your solar array and a battery. Positive and negative electrical connectors from battery and panels go into corresponding terminals of a controller. The whole process can be summarized in three steps:
