My solar power setup has been bouncing off the bottom of being charged and has been turning off overnight to protect the battery.
Lots of overcast days have depleted it a lot!
I've turned the output of the charge controller off for a few days to see if the solar panel can shove a few more amps and volts into the battery (I doubt it)

It's been a week and we've had some sunny days and some overcast days and it is currently snowing.

Battery is at 12.6v, which is not especially high (it's the reconnection voltage after too low voltage causes disconnect)
