The Sunforce 60012 7 Amp Charge Controller prevents overcharging and discharging of 12 Volt batteries. It is intended for use with 12 Volt solar panels and maintains 12 Volt batteries in a fully charged state. It can handle up to 7 amps of array current and up to 105 watts of solar power. The controller is easy to use with a yellow charging light that indicates that your battery is charging, and a green light that indicates a fully charged battery.
A charge controller is a very important feature of a solar system and must be used on all systems over 15 Watts. A charge controller protects your batteries from overcharge and discharge. Charge controllers are the maintenance free protection of your solar panel and batteries.
A charge controller monitors the battery’s state-of-charge to insure that when the battery needs change-current, it gets it, and also insures the battery isn’t overcharged. Connecting a solar panel to a battery without a regulator seriously risks damaging the battery and potentially causing a safety concern.
Charge controllers are rated based on the amount of amperage they can process from a solar array.
It was about 4 years old and still worked flawlessly.
So far the charger works as advertised by preventing battery drain when the sun goes down and charging while the panels are producing at least 13 volts.
I've been using it to maintain the charge on a car battery with an 8 watt solar panel and it has been working great.
I've tried other controllers but prefer this brand. LED indicators are easy to read. An attached voltmeter that I added shows the charge and holding rates to be spot on. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Barry J. Connolly
Does what it's supposed to do. I've found charge controllers last longer if they aren't pushed to their full rating. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Raymond M. Coulombe
