  1. :

    PROS:* Inexpensive* Two USB ports* Display screen* 12v and 24v* Supports multiple battery types* Very customizable* D2D Dusk to dawn (unexpected feature I really like)CONS:* PWM Pulse Width Modulation rather then MPPT* Connectors are a little small (It will fit 10 Gauge wire but just barelyThis is a PWM controller but for the money you save buying this controller rather then an expensive MPPT controller you could buy an extra 100 watt solar panel. For instance a Renology 20 amp MPPT controller is around $100 more. My last 100 watt panel cost me $108 delivered. The more expensive MPPT controller might be a better choice if space is extremely limited and you need to squeeze out every watt. For the rest of us this is a pretty good choice.The display: It’s not the worlds greatest screen and I wish it had a back light but I have terrible vision and I can still see it just fine. If you mount it somewhere dark bring a flashlight. The default screen shows battery voltage, battery level, and whether the battery is charging. Buttons scroll through other information like charging amps, load amps, temperature of controller, and optional settings.The USB ports: These are convenient. I have charged my phone with these ports quite a few times. They are rated to deliver 3 amps combined. You won’t be fast charging with these ports but they work fine.12v / 24v: I won’t go crazy explaining this but 24v can be better with long cable runs. I use 12v with short runs for convenience. This controller will do either. If you need 48v they make a controller that does that too.Supports multiple battery types: I use lead acid but you can also use Lithium Ion, and LIFePO4(Lithium Iron) For portable use Lithium Ion and LIFePO4 can save weight!Customizable: I won’t go into every setting here but you can change things like cutoff voltage, charging voltage, low voltage reconnect, and turn short circuit protection on and off.D2D Dusk till dawn: I wasn’t expecting this feature. This allows the controller to automatically turn on things like lights as soon as the sun goes down. If you want to set up outside lights this feature works great. I have been using this feature for solar night lights that actually work. This would be great for lighting a cabin, remote shed, or a long driveway.I was going to subtract a star because the manual didn’t contain details on some advanced features but when I contacted the company they quickly responded with an updated copy of the manual. The updated version explained some features I previously didn’t understand.
