Constantine Joseph: 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?

homeostasis4me: Subbed. Whereabouts in Tn are ya? I'm in Carroll County. My wife, son, and myself vacation in the Smokies every year. Have for a quarter century. What I'd give to live in the Appalachian chain....

Monir Ahmed: 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 power.my pump is 400 watt.

tony milano: can u run a 115V window ac ??

John Puccetti: Nice job!

Dan H: 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.

Snitchy1989: 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.. Thankyou

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

Glenn Hough: what battery brand is good to use?

Coss Sah: mark you are my hero but be sure it wud be harmfull to touch anything like this with bare hands 1:25

GalaXy808 .: I'm a beginner about solar things,very nice video

momstheword11: thanks for this video!

Adam Murray: 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

Robert Wachob: What guage wire do you recommend for a four battery system? I see 4 gauge in automotive

Chuck Maceac: 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 expenses.. 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.. Chuck

kathy johnston: 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 one.unique.woman@gmail.com

Korky Da Cat: rednecks

Robert Wachob: nice job, thank you

se7encapadon: I meant how many amps per battery?

Nasser AL-Otaibi: that was pretty simple. thanks for sharing

ewuest66: Mark. Just found your video. Good Info. Ive just started to read up on solar power. Why aren't you using fuses in the system. Thanks

supermanlxvi: Mark. Love the videos! Question: I have accumulated 7 solar panels varying from 5-25w / 13-21v /.42-1.5a . Can I combine these panels to 1 busbar then go to charge controller?

mettu shekar: modulaes

SteveoBenovski: No Birds, Squirrels or mice, But, I bet you got a saw neck! Good video, thanks for the info

Brian Kreisler: Can you please tell me which Coleman Air you are using? I don't see it on thier site. Thanks

Glenn Hough: this is very interesting, very informative video..

markp0177: Yes wire them in series.

Patrick Minns: (Continued) Likewise, the same process for the negative wires save for they go to a separate terminal block. The problem I am having is that the single wire going to the charge controller seems only to be carrying the energy generated by the lead that is directly opposite the lead that is going off to the charge controller. Am I supposed to use something other than a terminal block?? Please help!!!!

markp0177: My panel are 150 feet away. I use #2 aluminum wire from my panels to a terminal bar. The terminal bar is on the other side of that wall. I use #2 because I got if for $30 from the scrap yard.

Hackintosh Slovakia: thanks for great tutorial again!

markp0177: It is a model C80 diversion controller.

lamartosh: Hey glad to see someone does it simple .i like that keep it up buddy .all mine is too .

markp0177: No they did not come with the controller. You can buy the wire at your local hardware store or off ebay.

markp0177: I don't think it will work on DC. You need a amp meter wired in with a shunt and then you take your voltage times your amps to get watts.

robviolin1: What is the reason why you did not hook the batteries up in series?

Balaji Pala: how work salar panels out put is given 200watt panel20amps directlty connected how to sare load current with load and battery

markp0177: It changes the voltage, parallel keeps the voltages the same and series adds the voltage up.

DrShaz Austin D: I love all the extra little tips. I am in the Peace Corps in Belize and am encouraging the Cooperative who is interested in going solar to take a look at your videos. Problem is that things are so expensive to import into Belize if they are not here. Do you sell your made panels to overseas customers?

markp0177: For this short distance I used a #2 wire.

markp0177: It would take a lot of batteries.

markp0177: Well you would need a 220 volt inverter. I would take a large arry and a huge battery bank to just run the dryer and water heater. Use a solar water heater to heat your water and a clothes line to dry. I have a youtube video on how to make a simple solar water heater.

Sekji Ani: Thanks, very informative

how2duder: Much better Wow that makes a difference!! Thank you! Quick question so if I have 8 batteries that are 6v and I wanted to make a 48v system I would have to wire them in series correct?

Emma Sutton: Thank you so much for the informative videos!
