Top Customer Reviews
After some experience with this Solar Controller, and some help from the other reviewer - Loring, I begin to understand how it work.
This Solar Controller works the way it suppose to. The way I understand is that the Solar Controller monitor the battery
voltage in real time and adjust the current appropriately. Thus in the beginning of the charging process, the battery
voltage is low (idealy for an empty battery) and the controller will feed it large current. As the battery voltage
increase, the current is reduced until at end of the charging process, when the current is zero.
This is the idea situation and this controller does work in that manner. However that may not always result in rapid charge.
Most of the time we charge the battery when it does not run our devices anymore. This happen, not when the battery is
completely empty but, when its voltage is too low to run your devices. Unfortunately, sometime in this
state the battery still has high voltage. For example after running my battery operated fan for 60 hours, my 12V battery become 10V.
But the fan is no longer running. At this point, I considered the battery empty. And when I attempted to charge it with my solar
pannel and the solar controller, the battery voltage quickly (in about 1 minute) rise to 12.5 Voltage.
Thus in my case, only after a few minutes of charging, the Solar Controller "think" my battery is almost full and it
provide only 0.5 Amp. In reality my battery is far from full and I believe it can handle at least 1Amp to 1.5Amps (even 2Amps),
So this solar controller is doing what it suppose to, proctecting my battery. Unfortunately in this way I think it may
take too long to charge.Read more ›
