Today I’m looking to set up a separate solar power system and battery storage bank for my desk/office to more evenly distribute the load and keep is isolated from my primary battery bank which powers my mission critical 12v systems. I’m using a single 190 watt panel connected to a Morningstar 15 amp PVM charge controller connected to 2x Everstart Deep Cycle batteries I got at Walmart. The batteries are connected to a 400 watt AC inverter that I have connected to a power strip with the following devices plugged in:
- Laptop power cord
- Samsung micro USB charger
- Raspberry pi micro USB power
- Google Home
- 24″ Samsung LED display monitor
- Yaesu Ham radio charger
Will see if this works for my usage pattern and how much load it takes off my primary solar / battery setup.
