5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed, December 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hompie LCD Solar Charge Controller Intelligent Solar Panel Regulator Adapter with 30A 12V/24V 360W/720W PWM for Solar Power Panel Energy System, Street Lighting System and Environment Monitor etc (Lawn & Patio)
This thing is awesome for the price. Installed it on top of a battery box with a 110ah battery inside for portable power while camping. This is a huge step up from my 10a Sunforce, and I like having the LCD screen. Very cool to see the incoming voltage and amperage, while also monitoring how much power your devices are drawing if you connect your 12v socket/whatever to the controller.

With the battery pack, I had already installed some waterproof Blue Sea 12v sockets and typically used those for phone charging. These work fine on several phones I tested, and my LG G3 didn't even complain about slow charging like it does with anything <1.8 amps. I'm not sure why I thought these were solar fed (like a Goal Zero Nomad 7), but they continue to work even with the panel disconnected.

The instructions suggest mounting the unit on a metal surface, and it did get a little warm during my several hour partial-sun test with a 100w Renogy panel. It has fins or... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, well built doing it's job., February 25, 2015

So far this controller has delivered good results. My previous controllers only lasted about one year before problems arose. This one costs only half as much and time will tell how well it holds up. Charging modes seem to be of advanced industry standards and the functions are sufficient for controlling lights after dark. Low battery voltage protection is built in. Display lights up when buttons are pushed and read outs are large and clear. Array voltage is displayed, but not amperage. Battery charging amperage can be displayed and that is really all you need.
Simple, well built doing it's job.

5.0 out of 5 stars works great out the box, good info on LED screen, May 23, 2015

Working as expected. The good reviews helped me make this purchase (thanks to reviewers for all the details). My one complaint: it is difficult (if not impossible) to insert 8 AWG wiring into controller. It's been noted before so take heed of the warnings. I switched to 10 AWG with no problems.
