Charging and using at the same time

by Andy
(Michigan)

Hello,


I purchased your solar generator book, and maybe this is in there, but I missed it:

When you are using the inverter to run an appliance, charge a phone, etc, will the solar panel continue to charge the battery? (During the day that is.)

I didn't get that, will the charge controller stop the charging when the Internet is running?

Otherwise a good book. Looking at putting together a simple back up unit soon.

Generator Will Keep Charging
by: Ric

Hi Andy,

As long as the sun is out, the generator will try to keep charging. However, if you consume more power than the solar panel will provide, then naturally, the battery will get depleted.

And thanks for the nice words about the book!
