Im setting up a small raspberry pi based project, which will be solar powered, and im trying to wrap my head around what ill be needing to get it to work.
My understanding is you have this as a setup
Solar ------ Controller ------- Battery
and the charge controller relays power between the components.
so looking at jaycar I have found the following
Based on some quick math, I know the battery will last for aprox 4 hours at full load.
Ill be running the Pi about 10 mins per day, so I calculate about 20-25 days usage from the battery alone.
So looking at the solar side, would the panel and charger I got work with the battery?
and assuming minimal usage from the Pi, would the charger be able to keep the battery topped up?
Sorry if its a stupid question, still new to solar and trying to understand it
