In this video, I take a cheap battery monitor w/shunt I had kicking around and repurposed it to show amps and volts coming off a 600-watt solar panel array. I wired it up to be able to be easily connected in line with the solar panel output cable.
The main reason for this meter is that I’m currently testing out a Safari ME portable power station, and it doesn’t report the wattage coming in from the solar panels. Now I can see how exactly much power the solar panels are producing. By knowing this in real-time I can align and angle the Lion Energy folding panels for maximum output.
