Is it possible to eq a 208  ah @12 Battery
With a single 100 watt panel? 15.5 at 5.4 amps.~2.5-2.6℅

    PWM controller?  Maybe.  Being able to re-aim the panel during the EQ to keep it perpendicular to the sun might help, assuming the EQ could take a few hours.

    Pole mount fully adjustable. Why the question  pwm?

    Might work as well (or not) on mppt controller, but was thinking the difference between EQ ~15.5 and Vmp (~18v?) might not be enough overhead voltage (~16% vs 20-30% usually recommended). 

    Pwm just passes pv voltage through in bursts. 

    Mppt are also more or less pwm in absorb and EQ, but I don't know what (if any) effects  buck circuits in mppt controllers have in absorb/EQ.

    My pwm is not settable it's eq voltage is 14.8??  So I'm be using mppt. 
     My panel  vmp is 19v. Still on the low end as far as overhead ~22℅
    Assuming I can get 5 1/2  amps at 15.5 for 5 or 6 hrs.
     Even if it took more than 1 day.  Would 2.5℅ of capacity be high enough.

    Eventually if left long enough the voltage will increase to EQ levels, I have a 20W panel connected directly to a 45Ah battery so ~2.5% charge rate after 2 weeks of full tropical sun it reached 15.4V without loads, it was near full charge to begin with, the battery is used for an electric fence charger.
