If you have different wattage solar panels, the same voltage but different amps, which is the better way to wire the solar panels together in your DIY solar system – series or parallel? In this video, we take two 24V solar panels, and wire them in parallel and in series into an MPPT charge controller to a deep cycle battery. Then we’ll, measure the output to determine which method is better for maximizing your solar power production. The results may surprise you.
