Are there calculations to work out solar sytems

I have a 1.5watt trickle solar panel charger which keeps the engine battery topped up.
Would the same sized panel keep the leisure batteries charged or do I need more.
Is there some sort of calculation that needs to be done to work out how much charge each of the various panels puts into a battery.

Hi Artic Jack,

Go to Books and Info and buy the book new. It's cheaper than a used one from Amazon.

While you're waiting for the book to arrive, these four articles may be of interest to you.
