This panel can charge a 12V battery (LiFepO4, AGM, GEL, flooded lead-acid batteries).
Note: A charging rate depends on a few factors such as orientation, angle, and time/condition of a day. For example, on July 12 at 12:00 pm, a panel pointed to the South (with no shade and clear sky) in the Toronto area can generate almost its full rated capacity (1o0W). That being said, a 100Ah 12V battery will be charging at about 7Amp after MPPT conversion (7A x 1 hour = 7Ah, which is 7% of the total battery capacity.
