Frequently Asked Questions
  • How do I size my charge controller?

    Take the total wattage of your array (number of panels x watts per panel) and divide it by the voltage of your battery bank to get amps, then round up. The amp rating of your charge controller must exceed this number. If you need any assistance sizing your charge controller, please don't hesitate to call us at 888-899-3509 ext 1.

  • Should I get an MPPT or PWM charge controller?

    Simply put, if the voltage of your panels is close to the voltage of your battery bank, a PWM charge controller is an affordable choice. However, if your panel voltage is much higher than your battery bank, you should use an MPPT controller because it is designed to convert that higher voltage into amps, which will charge your batteries faster and provide you with a more efficient system.

High Quality, Great Controller March 28, 2016
Reviewer: Stuart Gorsky from Gardena, CA United States  
If used with a 19/20 Volt solar panel this is a great solar charger. Its water proof and has many settings to turn on and off devices rated at 10 amps or less. I have attached 12 watt outdoor lighting to the output and set the lights to go on at dusk running for 6 hours. You can set the time for all night, all day, one to 9 hours on, one to nine hours on with one to two hours turn on before sunup. This gives early riser light when going to work in the morning.

For running lighting and other devices this is top notch. By the way, it has LVD so your battery will not get damaged. I highly recommend for this kind of purpose.
