Re: Solar Project not yielding expected results

you need a larger battery, for lead acid batteries you should not discharge them lower than 12 volts if you want them to last a while (personal opinion, I want mine to last 10 years), to run my projector I have a 100 watt panel, an mppt charge controller and 4 deep cycle marine batteries and am able...

Re: Boosting the output audio is it possible

It is a little more complicated than that, due to limited space it runs only off of the battery, I forgot to mention I am also powering two 2 channel amps from the same power supply, they are DC 5V Mini Digital USB Power Amplifier Board PAM8403 Audio Class D 2*3W.
