|The KIA Solar Charge Controller post-accident.|
I'm glad now I didn't make the decision to upgrade the controller to a much more expensive MPPT controller because I'm pretty sure that one would have bit the dust too. As it is the one PWM controller in the picture above can be replaced for under $30 off Amazon. You can get upwards of $200 really quickly if shopping for a MPPT controller (they're more efficient in the way they control charging) so I guess I partially dodged a bullet.
Guess I'll head to Amazon and get the order started. I really need to design a tube stand for the suitcase like I made for the stand-alone panel - it won't be as pretty but it would be a hell of a lot stronger!
Thanks for reading!
