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.
