Solar Battery Voltage
Solar Batteries are available in a few common voltage sizes. The most common voltage used for solar batteries are 6V, 12V, 24V and 48 Volts.
What is Voltage?
Voltage, also called electromotive force, is a quantitative expression of the potential difference in charge between two points in an electrical field. Voltage is the pressure from an electrical circuits power source, (e.g. solar panels, solar batteries, or the utility grid), that pushes charged electrons (current or Amps) through a circuit conducting loop. A Volt is unit of electromotive force, the difference of potential that would drive one ampere of current against one ohm resistance. The volt is named in honor of the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta (1745–1827), who invented the voltaic pile, possibly the first chemical battery.
