Question by : solar panel kit help!!!?
im planning on buying this solar panel kit- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CIADLG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER (a 60 watt soar panel kit)
i am very new to the solar world and i need help with some stuff to understand what i need to do.
what AH battery should i use? i am planning on getting a 12V deep cycle gel based battery but i want to get the most power for my system so should i use something like a few 100AH in a battery bank system or a bunch or 50 or so amp hour batteries in a bank. also what kind of power am i looking at for the best battery system. in other words what kind of basic appliances like lighting, laptop,space heaters etc can can i run on the selected battery system and for how long? any help would be highly appreciated.

60 watts isn’t going to run a space heater for very long. That’s 5 amperes at 12 volts maximum on a sunny day. You could charge a laptop and some LED lights.
