Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fort Collins, CO United States  
All items were in stock and received in great condition.  You have the best prices out there.   My only complaint is that it took 4-5 days from the time the order was placed until it was shipped.

Reviewer: Dean from Florida  
Works as advertised with the Morningstar SS-MPPT Controller.  To see exactly how well your system is performing, this meter is an ablolute must.
