If you have 12.75V at the battery and have T1 power, the charger is most likely dead in the controller and you will need a new control panel. I think you mean 2A charger, but even still, that battery should be higher voltage than that with a charger hooked to it... Most chargers run the battery up around 13.5VDC when fully charged.

I have one more of those panels left in stock right now. https://shop.gentekpower.com/products/g ... trol-panel
