6 Inch 12 Volt and 24 Volt DC Submersible Water Heater Elements - Low Voltage Can be used direct with batteries, solar panels, hydroelectric generators, as a wind turbine dump diversion load. You can run high voltage through the element as long as you don't exceed the rated wattage of the element. As long as your panel(s) voltage exceeds the element voltage rating but does not exceed the max output wattage, you can safely use the element. DO NOT USE GRID POWER AS IT WILL IMMEDIATELY DESTROY THE ELEMENT! Can also be used as a solar panel dump load. Uses: Livestock water tank de-icer (low amp draw means you won't drain your battery as fast). For keeping dog, cat, chicken, and other domestic animals' water from freezing.
