The first thing, we're going to be working with right now on our kit is the charge controller. We're going to take the tray cable, we're going to attach it to the charge controller on the battery terminal. The red wire goes into the positive, and the green wire goes into the negative. Screw them down. Now, that we have our tray cable attached to our charge controller.
After this step, if you look at your charge controller, you should notice that the battery light is lit up. This means you have power now coming to your charge controller.
Next, we're going to be installing our ten-foot adapter kit to the wire, leads on the back of the panel. We need to make sure that we maintain polarity. So, we're going to take the male connector and insert it into the female connector. Now, we have our 10-foot adapter kit connected to the back of our panel. We are now ready to take the end of our 10-foot adapter kit, and we're going to attach it and install it into our 10 amp charge controller at the end of our 10 foot.

Make sure that the wires are stripped, just like this. I pre-strip my wires longer than they need to be. Ideally, you want to cut them to 3/8 of an inch. So, your bare wire expose will be a little bit shorter than this.
We're going to take our negative lead, and we're going to plug it into the charge controller, and we screw this down. Take our positive lead, and we insert it. We have now successfully attached or panels to the charge controller and our battery to the charge controller.
There's only one step in the process left, and that will be to attach a small load to the chart of the controller. Currently, your 10 amp charge controller is turned off. We need to turn it on by pressing the button, you should see some numbers appear. You don't need to worry about what number is displayed.
Currently, we set it down and we have our panel hooked up, and we have our battery hooked up. Now, we can attach a small load to the charge controller. You'll notice the inserts down here is where you normally want to attach things. For the purposes of this article, I'm just going to show you, how you can test it to make sure it's working here. We have a small 12 volt LED light, we're just going to take the wires and touch them to the land.
