Re: Solar charge controller question

Another detail I should mention: according to the panel literature, each panel should put out a maximum of 3.5a/18v per hour under optimum sun conditions. Should I expect something like 2a/hour during the sunny hours from each panel? It seems that I should be putting more into the battery than I consume if that's the case.

And yet another detail ... I measured 16v coming into the controller from the panels in the late afternoon sun. Can I assume the panels are working fine?
