Regulators & Controllers
Solar Regulators (also known as charge controllers) enable you to charge 12V batteries and power 12V appliances directly from solar panels. Due to a number of factors, the voltage that is supplied from solar panels will fluctuate - this means it is not suitable for charging batteries or power appliances directly. This is when the solar regulator comes in. It will control the amount of charge delivered to the battery or appliance to avoid overcharging and power surges that may damage your 12V battery or appliance. The regulator simply needs to be installed between in line between your solar panel setup and battery.
