Max nominal panel voltage for Wanderer Li 30A 12V PWM Neg Gnd Charge Controller?
I find it incredibly surprising that the 30A Wanderer CC can't handle the same V input as it's smaller, less expensive 10A sibling. Can I use a 24V nominal panel as input for the 30A Wanderer? Would it then be capable of charging a 24V battery bank, or would that 24V input be 'lost' in the buck conversion i.e. step-down to 12V output? In this case would I still get the total power output i.e. 24V * "X"A = 12V * 2* "X"A = 270W? Ignoring minor losses etc. and focusing on the nominal figures - can someone please educate me?
