The makerPower is a combination solar battery charger and 5V power supply for IOT-class devices designed for 24/7 operation off of solar power. It manages charging a 12V AGM lead acid battery from common 36-cell 12V solar panels. It provides 5V power output at up to 2A for systems that include sensors or communication radios. Optimal charging is provided through a dynamic perturb-and-observe maximum power-point transfer converter (MPPT) and a 3-stage (BULK, ABSORPTION, FLOAT) charging algorithm. A removable temperature sensor provides temperature compensation. Operation is plug & play although additional information and configuration may be obtained through a digital interface.
Compatible Solar Panels and Batteries
The makerPower is designed to use standard 25- or 35-Watt 12V solar panels with AGM type 7-Ah to 18-Ah 12V lead acid batteries. It has a maximum charge capacity of about 35-38 watts. A detailed sizing method is described in the user manual but it is possible to use smaller or larger panels and batteries depending on the application.
Typically a 25-Watt panel is paired with a 7-Ah battery for small systems (Arduino-type up to Raspberry Pi Zero type). A 35-Watt panel is paired with 9-Ah to 18-Ah batteries for larger systems. Larger batteries provide longer run-time during poor (lower light) charging conditions. A larger panel can provide more charge current during poor charging conditions.
Solar panels should be a 36-cell type with a typical maximum power-point of around 18V and maximum open-circuit voltage of 23V (typically around 21-22V).
I have used the Carlon E989N enclosure found at a Home Depot home improvement store to hold the battery, charger, and single-board computer. It is a good size providing room for a 7- or 9-Ah battery as well as room for heat dissipation from both the charger and computer. Note that the charger can dissipate upwards of 5W when running at full capacity.
Other possible enclosures include the following:
This wiring kit includes nine 20 cm female-female Dupont wires, two 20 cm battery wires, and a header to make the temperature sensor remote.
