12v Solar Chargers And Solar Batteries – How Beneficial They Can Be For You

12-Volt solar batteries are made available in varied configurations as they serve several different purposes. You can obtain a charge in different wattages, usually, 12, 15 or even 18 watts. The higher the wattage the faster it will be able to recharge the device. One of the vital benefits of using a 12V solar battery charger is that you can diminish the use of specialty charges that are designed for different appliances such as cars, cell phones, iPods, and Laptops. Some other aspects that you perhaps would like to take into account would be a charge controller that helps prevent the rechargeable device from overcharging while it is being recharged. The charge controller generally comes with a light indicator which indicates when the device has finished charging.

There are various specialized types of chargers available today. 12-Volt marine charges are commonly used. They can last for years. Solar-powered cell phone chargers enable you to keep your phones charged without being around an electrical outlet. One other kind of a specialized charger is the one that sits on your car’s dashboard. You can plug it in via the cigarette lighter and keep the vehicle’s battery from discharging over the period of time. Some other 12V solar battery chargers are made available in camcorders and digital cameras, in the laptops, even in the batteries inside are rechargeable. To determine how long it will take for you to recharge the device, you may look for the amperage hours of the battery in the gadget you want to recharge and then divide them by the amperage hours, rounding the figure by 10 percent. One other rule of thumb for your 12V solar battery charger is that it should recharge the gadget in less than 20 hours specially when you are getting direct sunlight. That is direct sunlight, and not just it is being sunshiny outside. For more details, do check out the 12V solar battery chargers blog post from Semprius

It is also imperative to know what the applications will be for solar batteries that you have bought. Some of the solar-powered battery designs are set up for quick discharge that is further followed by a long recharge. Other battery designs support long hours of continuous usage. The use to which the solar battery is applied will certainly help you decide better on the solar battery charger you should consider using.

As solar batteries generate direct current rather than the other type of current, they are mainly designed for 12V or 24V DC current. The most common use is for the home appliances. Inverters convert the 12V or the 24V solar power to 155V AC power which is useful for residential use. Solar batteries charge from the solar panels and supply continuous power to a home when it is too cloudy for the solar panels to generate power.

Welcome to the YoDish family!

YoDish was born out of necessity after a diagnosis of multiple severe food allergies changed my family’s life, opening our eyes to the trials of special dietary needs – increased anxiety and reduced social, career, and travel opportunities.

Our mission is to minimize the stress and conflict that families with special dietary needs face by delivering the information you need at the speed of modern life.

Let’s outsmart restaurant dining, together.

Join the #YoDishMovement today.
