Hi, Is it necessary to install a battery to the Geo 2 kit? How long will the light last with no battery? By Paul Blenkinsop on Apr 24, 2019
Yes, otherwise the light would only last if the panel had light creating power. The power output from the panel would also be variable on the amount of light hitting the panel, this would be a problem for lighting.

I've just pruchased the Geo 2; before I purchase your battery (34AH) and a charge controller can you tell me if I would be able to also run a greenhouse heater off this as well as the light with the Geo 2?

Its unlikely to work well with a heater. Most heaters need Kw of power vs Two 40w equivalent LED bulbs. If you found a 12v heater with low power usage it could work

hello i have the geo 2 kit and was thinking of buying this battery, will i need a charge controller if i buy this or as it has a larger capacity would it just hold the extra charge etc? By elaine on Feb 20, 2018
Generally, you will not need a charge controller for the GEO 2. If you are likely to not be using the lights (or whatever you are powering) for long periods of time I'd suggest getting a charge controller or simply disconnecting the panel. Overcharging the battery reduces the battery life.
