Yes you can feed 24 volts into the SolarBoost and still have it regulate a 12 volt battery bank. This is feature that the SolarBoost offers just so that folks can save on wire size and line losses. It is the only charge regulator we offer that will allow for this type of system and it is a very nice feature. Just one more reason why the SolarBoost MPPT's are so popular.
