I went through the controller, direct to the battery terminals. Almost directly, in that the panel came with various connectors so I had it running through a DC power outlet to a DC power inlet. Thought about just bypassing that, since it wasn't needed.
I wasn't expecting it to do a sterling job, being only 40 watts.
The thing is, I'm not sure how capable the battery is of taking a charge. I'm going to check the cells tomorrow. Next trip is into the bush, so I will bring my generator.
