Need practical advice on solar system
I am about to plunge for the first time into the solar world... I am going to buy a 100W (12V) panel, 20A charge controller, battery and 12V/220V converter. The idea is to "wet my feet" with this small off-grid system, and I would appreciate some sage advice from the experts here!
1. Is 20A charge controller too much for a 100W panel? Should I go for 10A instead?
2. Which battery should I use? Lead-acid, car battery, etc... how many Ah would be appropriate for this small system?
3. Are there any special considerations for electrical cables, plugs, sockets, etc.?
I'd love to benefit from your experience!
