Hello YouTubers, you are welcome to another
of my YouTube video, today’s video is all about showing you how I upgraded my solar
setup, I have now a 200AH deep cycle battery and am gonna be showing you how I hooked it
up, to my Inverter, Charge Controller and Solar Panel As you can see this is a very massive battery. And very massive indeed. Alright, 12-volt 200 AH see my tape across it, you can see this is more than one foot, is massive indeed. I have added 250 watts to my 130 watt panel,
but in this installation, am gonna be making use of only one 250 watt Solar Panel. Alright, it is time to hook up the wires to
the charge controller, right now am looking for the positive side of the battery on the
Charge Controller and here is it, tighten it firmly, alright, now is time to connect
the negative terminal of the battery on the charge controller I just feel like lifting this Inverter for proper ventilation, now I want to hook up
the Inverter, the Charge Controller and the battery so I pick up the positive end of
the Inverter and am gonna hook up to the positive end of the battery, you can see positive
red or plus red and minus negative (that’s minus) so the red is usually positive while
the black is negative Now, pick my Charge Controller locating the positive side, so I trace the positive side and join it with the positive connection, so what I have now is positive terminal of the battery coming from the Charge Controller, positive side
coming from the Inverter all going to the positive side of the battery, so everything
positive here, as in everything positive, I don’t want a loose connection, I want
a firm connection, alright. Now is time to hook up the negative terminal, Now from my charge controller, locate the negative terminal of the battery and join
it with negative terminal of the battery and also the negative side on the Inverter, so
everting negative, so is as simple so is as simple, I have 3 components here, Inverter, Charge Controller and the battery, put all the positive together and put all the negative together and you
are good to go, and that is it, I should have the voltage of my battery now Is time to hook up the Solar Panels, sorry, I have just one Solar Panel outside, so this
mark here shows me this’s the positive terminal of my Solar Panel, am using one 250 watt Solar
Panel, so on my Charge Controller, am going to look for the Solar Panel icon and locate
the positive this is were an going to hook up the positive terminal of the Solar Panel
as simple as that, now I take the negative and also locate the negative terminal on the
Charge Controller, like I always said, I need a firm connection, and here is my system,
set, battery voltage is now 12.2, and there is something blinking there showing you that
the Solar Panel is charging the battery. So, here is the remote and extension cable
of the Inverter, most Inverters don’t come with this, but there should be a switch somewhere
on the Inverter, for switching on and off of the Inverter, so if your Inverter doesn’t
come with a remote control, never mind, just use the switch somewhere on the Inverter. So, one end is on the remote. The other end of the cable will go to the
Inverter, now here is the supply to my shed, so am gonna plug this and this gonna distribute
the electricity in my shed so everythingthing is complete, you see it takes less than 8 minutes to set these things up And here is it, we have electricity in the shed, so
right now, let’s see what we can power from this electricity from 250 watt Solar Panel,
so first of all I go with the light And that’s it, secondly try the ceiling fan, and there
it is, so I have my ceiling fan and my electric bulb on at the moment, I would like to add
some gadgets to this and here is my laptop, so am gonna connect the adapter of my laptop
and charge from solar. Now watch the battery of the laptop, is not
charging at the moment, and there it is. Is now charging, so we have the laptop the
ceiling fan and the electric bulb When I pull in out it stops to charge, I get it back in, it begins to charge. Alright, I have a subwoofer here, I will like
to turn this on as well. This is the audio cable, am gonna plug this
into 3.5mm jack on my laptop. Ok, so can I play a song now? Hmmmm ok yeah, I can actually play a song,
an audio And here we are, (music playing but I remove
the audio due to copyright)


  1. I like you're video and nextime put we can clearly understand what are you saying on you're video.

  2. That charge controller is no good, get a midnite 150 they are really good, you need battery cut off switch, in line fuse for your + wires for safety and do you have cut of switch for your solar panel . food for thought. I recommend some research on solar for your own safety…. keep up the good work……

  3. 6 to 10 of those batteries you will be good to go for a day or so. then you just need enough solar to keep em charged

  4. Nice setup, simple and effective.
    Bad music
    Could not understand most of video.
    You should redo the video so other will give a full viewing, but other than those things, great video 👍🏿👏🏾🇯🇲

  5. I have 2 2500 watt inverters same company as one you showed, they work well for me. I got mine at ali as well.

  6. Wrong kind of battery. Although it's big and initially you would think it's the right one it is not. You want to Trojan 105. There 6 volt batteries two of them together. They run about 230 amp hours. And would only cost you 40 more dollars would last longer. You're going to cook that battery in a year to the Trojans would last you 10.

  7. I had a very large refrigerator and a medium sized chest freezer plugged into one of them, the "running" watts not so bad, maybe 400 total, but start up was like 1165 for the ref and 970 for the freezer, the inductive type load was just too much maybe, the other one, the same 2500 watt pure sine wave, has 3 bedrooms with computers and tvs , fans on it and it seems to be just fine.

  8. I have an off grid solar power system in my garden shed. with 6 12 volts strung for 24 volts, and am currently expanding the system for 2Kw solar power

  9. Discharge and charge cycle will kill your battery's life span. Better put the inverter connector to the charger's load terminal, as long as it has a sunlight it will get the power from your solar not on your battery.

  10. Nice Video.I Like it..If You Want to grow your business..list your company on our B2B to Portal TradeXL..And Know more About solar Power System, click here-

  11. You should put the charge controller wires on top, the inverter cables on the bottom. That inverter will draw a lot of current when fully loaded. If there is any resistance in those washers, or terminal ends the battery terminals will get too hot. The charge controller will only produce a maximum of 21 amps. The inverter can draw as much as 130 amps at full load. That enormous battery is more than capable of supplying that.

  12. good evening I would like to know if with the 200Ah bacteria and a 250W panel I can only feed a bulb + a brewer + a computer + a radio only? can I add a TV at the same time?

  13. Lead Acid last about 2 years maybe 3 at best. Just be careful spending money. You'll replace this shortly. All lead acid can only be used to about 50% of its capacity. So this almost makes 50% of the battery a waste as it cycles. Also 12volt systems produce a ton of amps and cannot run alot of pumps, AC's, Induction heating and Motors due to the High amp draw on a 12volt system. Example 2,000watts of needed power on a 12volt inverter = 167 amps <- ouch! Most high frequency cheap inverters cannot handle this and your system fails. Same set up on a 24volt battery set up and 24volt inverter with 2,000 watt draw = 84amps and wow this is even high and can fail. Lets double that with a 48volt battery bank and 48 volt inverter to 120 AC current you get 42 amps on a 2,000 watt draw. Little better. The Amps half each time the voltage doubles. Hope this helps many. Low frequency inverters are built to handle amps and have the correct components internally but the down fall is cost and now you know.

  14. Guys this is a simple design with simple capacity for a small African 2bedroom flat or a small business office.. We need something to augment the Grid supply that isnt reliable. In these part, we (homes) dont need the electricity during daytime but at night . Essentially we need it for a 40inch flat tv + laptop (for 5hours max) , 4 energy bulbs, 2 energy fans. The income level here isnt much. So this is ideal somewhat. For you guys outside Africa, most of what you are suggesting are either more expensive bcos they are scarce or unavailable. Kudos FUTURE TECH !!

  15. Soy Jose Alberto Gomez Hermano de andita … En Realidad todos Los Videos Son muy Interesantes En Especial Los Referentes A Energia Solar Gracias J.o. A. g

  16. When you have terrible sound transmission as in this video, you should dump any music. I had to abandon this video due to lousy sound.

  17. So many mess up people in this world, I use to depend on YouTube for reliable resource, now I'm just lost and frustrated.

  18. Even without your voice, i can understand what you are doing. That's very basic. I have 2 – 290watts solar panel with 40amps solar charge controller and 1500watts pure sine wave inverter. It can run 1unit of 6cu.ft. inverter refregerator, 1 unit 5cu.ft. chiller and 1 unit 23watts 12v dc fan during day time.

  19. Thanks for this video sir clear video and step by step intallation and your a great sir make a more video for intallation and more about energy. . Great sir👍👍👍👍👏👏

  20. Did you have a problem with your 1st MPPT T40 charge controller? Is that the reason it couldn't charge your 200AH Deep cycle battery?

  21. There is a component which you did not talk about but I've noted on the side of the battery was the recommended settings for the charging of the battery. In the US the American manufacturers do not really post it like you have it. I've been asking questions as to the recommended rate of volts that the solar panels need to deliver to keep the battery charged was fullest capability. This is very important as you will eventually ruin your batteries if you keep chronically under charging them. For this you need a solar controller that has adjustable settings. That and you need the manufacturer's recommended voltage the battery should be charged at. Many people in America think it's the same charging as a car or truck battery this is not so according to some people who have solar channels here in the US. You need more voltage to go into the battery above and beyond what a car would need to keep that battery healthy and doing it's stated recommended number of cycles of discharge. I've been told by some Wise Old teachers that this is Smith. But I suspect based upon others experiences with failing batteries that there is more to this than what knowledge that is out there currently recognizes. Do you have an opinion?

    In the u.s. batteries run $230 us to over 900 and wet far beyond. The price is affected by one paying for the brand name, to paying for the warranty and 3 the cost of making the battery plus a profit for the factory that made it. Most of the batteries in the US I have read have a very large price because the companies that make the battery know that they are going to fail and you are already paying in advance for your replacement battery if you honor the warranty. I have no other explanation for the increase of the price when the batteries are all made by the same plant and a different brand name put on them. And the secret remains what should be the charging voltage going into the battery through the charge controller.

    after several months of waiting for responses from Battery manufacturing Engineers I have nothing. So I have no opinion to tell you if this is the truth or if this is all myth. is there anybody out there who designs batteries works at a battery manufacturing plant who can give us some insight? when I am speaking about charging voltage has I am specifically speaking about the lead acid and sealed lead acid batteries. and why am I using lead acid batteries to 150 year old ? Well it's what I can afford.

  22. Hi there. ¿How voltage you use to charge, discharge and floating? I believe max discharge is 11.9v and max charge is 13.8. Am i right? How last your battery in years or month? How deep is your discharge? 90-80-70-50%?
