5.0 out of 5 stars More Than a Charge Controller! This is a Load Controller Too!, June 21, 2017

This review is from: Anself Solar Charge Controller Charging Regulator for Solar Panel Battery Overload Protection (11A) (Electronics)
This little charge controller has already been through a tough North Dakota summer- and is still working great!

I thought for sure I was going to have to build a weatherproof enclosure for this as the sides are open for ventilation. I figured dirt and rain would have this system of the fritz in just days. But since this was an experimental system for solar powered pumps, I figured I might as well sacrifice this inexpensive controller to see where the limits are.

To my surprise, the system has been wet, dirty and shocked hard when the 2X4 it was attached to fell over in a rain\wind storm. So far, it still works perfectly. It appears there is some sort of coating on the circuit board that insulates it from the environment! Whoever built this understood it's a field unit and designed it accordingly.

The screws on the base can be tightened very tight to hold wire connectors securely- without stripping or breaking the device. The screws are made from... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Dead output in 7 days, February 10, 2016
Cosmos Joseph (St. Lucia)
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Stopped working in 7 days. My project consist of a 12 volt 5 watts solar panel, a 12 volt 7 amp battery, a 12 volt to 5V/2A power supply and the Docooler Solar Charge Controller. The load output worked sometimes, when it did my battery gets a full charge during the day, and supply my power supply during the night. However the controller NEVER show all 3 LEDs indicating full battery ( I tested the battery using a volt meter). Now on the 7th day all 3 LEDs stopped working and 1 to 2 volts on the load output. I then tried using it as a 24 volt setup, I got a 24V load output but still no battery level indication.

UPDATE: I received a faulty one so the seller sent me a replacement and now after almost a year the replacement stopped working. No voltage on the load output.

The seller quickly send a replacement but took a while to arrive because it came from China. It is working perfect, I guess I just got a faulty one the first time, I will upgrade to a 20 amps soon... Read more
