Minimum solar panel capacity
Crown batteries recommends a finish charge rate of 3% to 4% for their batteries based on the 20 hour AH battery rating (deep cycle). Since the last 10% to 20% of battery charging (the finish charge) takes as long as the bulk charging phase I feel comfortable sizing my solar panel output based on this recommendation for my situation where battery use is infrequent (once a week or less) and vary rarely going below 50% DOD. Does this seem like a reasonable assumption. Thanks. Steve S.
