Conclusion/ Remarks

What equipment  are you currently using on your Solar, and it's Wattage.

 

We use over 280 computers that are low powered and driven by solar. The  monitors are supplied by CLS and are 15.6 LED, 12volts DC (1.5Amps); their power unit (AC-DC switching adapter) are 100-240VAC and 0.5A.

So far these work very effectively.
