I am starting a small solar system. I want to run a few electronics in my network, the stuff that runs 24/7. I have a smaller 17AH battery and have a 20W solar panel, and a 7amp charge controller.
Since this system is not worthy of an expensive charge control system, I wanted to know the viability of putting two charge controllers in parallel, or just connect them to one battery. One controller would have the solar panel. The other would be an ac/dc power supply to maintain power. Would this work, or would it not work correctly?
