I have a pair of Rich Solar 24v 200W panels on my camper, feeding my Bluetti AC200, working fine, and by noon the Bluetti is always fully charged.

I want to charge 600Wh (12V 55Ah) worth of LFP boat battery with these panels each day too, so I plan on connecting the solar panels through an Epever 10A SCC to the battery.

My question is on sizing the solar charge controller. I am under the impression that the 10A rating is the Solar Input rating, not the Battery Output rating.

Does a 10A SCC mean that it takes in 10A of solar from the panels or does it mean that it outputs 10A to the battery?

I have the pair of panels flat mounted in series measuring 90 Voc and rated at 5.3A 38V max. I have never seen more than 230W input to my Bluetti. So the Bluetti panel says it is charging at 56 volts and 4.1 amps at it's maximum.

So, if the Epever 1210AN SCC is rated for a charging current of 10A with a realized max input power of 260W (400W theoretical maximum), will the battery receive only 10A at say 14V or will the battery receive a higher amperage at 14v to equal the total solar input wattage?
