Collection: Solar Cables, Battery Cables and Connectors
Cables are simple right? They just join two things together, Simple as that. Well yes and no, it’s important to size your cable correctly for the job. You can put a small cheap cable in and you will lose lots of power in the cable or start a fire if it's not fused. Or just blow the budget and whack the biggest cable in. We like to get the balance right. Use a cable calculator likethis cable calculator. For solar panels enter the voltage, the solar panel current and the distance to controller, aim for 3 percent voltage drop. Same with running appliances enter the voltage of the appliances, the cable length and the current. Or just buy a kitset where we have already done the calculations for you.
