Solar Warning !!!

BIG SOLAR WARNING !!!! 

There are several counterfeit MPPT controllers on the market. Many of these counterfeit MPPT controllers are simply PWM controllers with "MPPT" lettering written on them. Additionally, some of these counterfeit MPPT controllers with LCD screens actually show "PWM" on the screen when powered up.

Become familiar with the appearance of both PWM and MPPT controllers, many of the counterfeit MPPT controllers look exactly like a PWM controller with "MPPT" written on the case.

Also, if the price is TOO LOW, then you should be suspicious and check it out very well before you decide buy it.

That's why I think it's better to purchase a kit. I have the Renogy 100w kit installed in my Scamp.

Renogy Results

Hi Art and Luann,

How is that 100 watt Renogy system working out for you?

Did you have any problems with the installation?

What type of battery bank are you using?

How well does the system keep your battery(ies) charged up?

Any operational issues?

How many days can you boondock?

Have you had any issues with overcast days?

Are you planning any upgrades to your Solar system?

It would be great if you could write up an overview of the Renogy system for others who might be considering Solar.

Thanks,

As Always,

Happy Scamping !!!

Renogy

The Renogy system works great even on cloudy days. I will write a complete review with pictures of my setup when I return to Florida in a few weeks
