I would like to create a very simple solar panel setup, to power a 9W bulb and maybe a 3watt digital radio.
I'm considering purchasing a 12ah deep cycle battery, 15watt (1amp) max output solar panel and an equavilant inverter. The solar panel has a blocking diode so I don't think a charge controller will be required for this setup.
All the batteries I have seen only have two terminals one for the positive and one for negative. Is it possible to connect both the solar panel and the inverter connectors to the same battery at the same time i.e. four connectors to the batteries two terminals or would I have to charge the battery disconnect the solar panel and than connect the inverter?
Many Thanks in Advance.
