Benefits of a Solar Controller

It is important to include a controller in a solar power system.

Reduces Cost of Battery Replacements

The low voltage disconnect will increase battery life. The loads are automatically disconnected when the battery is low and automatically reconnected after the battery is recharged.

Complete charging will increase battery life and storage capacity.

The controller will maximize the amount of solar energy into the battery and avoid drying out the battery.

Provides Useful Information

LEDs display status information and battery level which helps the user to better operate the solar power system.

5 of 5 Morningstar Quality October 27, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Albuquerque, NM United States  
This is a good controller for small charging needs, 170 watts or less of solar. Foolproof installation and robust connections. It's not adjustable for different battery types but it's factory settings are a very good compromise. Morningstar's great quality and reliability at a budget price. Manufactured in Taiwan (head and shoulders better than China IMO). Highly recommended!
