Since as the wire size decrease voltage drop increases. I will need more light to get the voltage required to actually start charging the batteries.Example: I may be getting 125V at the panels, but due to voltage drop I may only be getting 112V at the Midnite but still at a set amperage, so the wire is still safe? As long as the wire meets the amperage needs, I am not building a fusible link?As light increases, voltage drop decreases and the system (wires) gets more efficient.
