Re: PHOCOS solar charger experiences?

well I found out some stuff...

on the boat I found a 5 amp little charge controller which was deep in some parts boxes...dont know of its what was used before but Ill take a pic and maybe get some infom about it and see if it works before trying the new controller

it had 5 wires coming out of it with a fuse on a positive red lead...

and I also found out the brand of my panel

its a SOLAR JACK panel...since the controller is only 5 amps Im wondering if my panel is only around 60-80 watts or so...much less than I thought before...

if anyone has experience with solar jack panels Im all ears...

seems that on the web I only get info about solar jack pumps and systems...not specifics about the panel
