I have a follow-on question. I'm still trying to get the numbers down for capacity on my new set. Is it better for me to add another battery in parallel, assuming I get 60 percent sun coverage, or just the one battery and another set of panels?
In real-world terms, what is the limiting factor here if I want to have more power to run stuff longer? I'm aware that a set of panels puts out 45 watts. I believe I want to capture as many amps as I can into batteries. What should I concern myself to optimize? thanx, sam
