I am a complete novice with batteries, inverters and solar panels / regulators. I have purchased a 130Ah AGM deep cycle battery, a 500W pure sinewave inverter and 2 x 100W solar panels with built-in solar regulators to take camping.
If I connect both the inverter and the solar panels to the battery's electrodes at the same time (to draw and replenish battery charge simultaneously), are there any precautions that I should take? For example, is it OK for both electrodes to be touching each other?
Is it OK to leave the solar panels connected to the battery after the battery is fully charged or is this one of the purposes of the solar regulator?
It is a 12V battery. The specifications of the inverter are detailed in this link:
Here is some information on the solar panels both of which are identical:
Here is some information about the built-in regulator:
Here is some more information about the regulator that makes mention of a temperature sensor. Does this appear to serve the purpose that you indicated it should?
Here is some more technical information about the inverter:
