Solar/Inteli-charger

Recommended Posts

I have installed an Inteli-charger in my '87 Sunrader. The inteli-charger pulses 14 amps to the batteries, which keeps them from sulfating the batteries during storage. I lost two Trojan Batteries in my Winnebago View before I installed an inteli-charger. 

My question is this: If I install solar on my Sunrader will the solar input into the system be pulsed by the inteli-charger or does the solar go directly to the battery without going thru the Inteli-charger?

Thanks,

Choices.. buy a solar controller that has 3-4 stages. Some mfg call their controller a 3 stage others that do the same thing call theirs a 4 stage. What your looking for is an equalization charge stage.

A desulfator as a bit different. This is what I use for a desulfator... https://www.ebay.com/itm/PulseTech-PowerPulse-12-Volt-Battery-Maintenance-System-PP-12-L/183658489068?epid=2254333963&hash=item2ac2e624ec:g:bVYAAOSwaEdcTyhv.

It'snn powered from the battery so there is a small constant drain. The solar panel will handle it though.

Outstanding! Great info. Do you know if this can be used with two six volt batteries? 

Really appreciate your thinking on this.

The Pulse-Tech comes in 12,24,36,48v models. The only thing the unit cares about is the voltage. So the 12v unit will work with 2 6v batteries in series (my setup) or with 2 or 3 12v batteries in parallel.

If you have some spare time between fishing trips, take a stroll through their web site... https://www.pulsetech.net/
