Can Go Power Portable 200 Watt Solar Panel be Used With 130 Watt Portable Solar Panel


I currently have the GoPower 130W solar on the side kit with the 10 amp solar controller. Can I purchase the 200W kit in the subject above and combine it with my current system to charge a Lithium iron phosphate 200AH 12V RV battery? The 200W kit comes with a 30 amp solar controller. Also, can I bypass the 10 amp controller on the 130W kit and wire it into the 200 W 30 amp controller so basically I have 2 folding solar panels running into the 30 amp controller?

That's a good question, so I did reach out to Go Power in regards to adding the use of the 200 watt kit, and they said yes, the 130 Watt Go Power Portable Solar Panel with Digital Solar Controller # 34282730 is compatible with the 200 watt kit you asked about, which is the following part number.

- Go Power Portable Solar Panel with Digital Solar Controller - 200 Watt Solar Panel # 34282610

What they said was you had it exactly right, and that you'd bypass the 10 amp solar controller, and wire both panels, in parallel, through the 30 amp controller.
