  1. Some you have listed here are switching not PWM, and some are PwM not MPPT several are the worst available on the market. How on earth did this list come together?

    • Thank you for your comment, The list was originally created to suit everyone’s need, But we are working on updating and improving it.

    • Baaa; can you give me a little input, it seems like you know what you are talking about if you are calling the blogger out… I am looking to get the best mppt controller I can get for around $150.00 U.S. Dollars could you recommend one please??? This is where I am at at the moment… I have 3 12volt 100 watt panels and 4 6volt Duracell golfcart batteries as of now, but my plan is to add on as time goes by, panel by panel with 8 being about my max I’m thinking and 6 6volt batteries… any help would be greatly appreciated… I am goad you made this comment because I was about to head over to buy the first one they have listed on here I am so thankful I seen your post…

      • Hi Fred,

        Thank you for your comment, Kindly know that any your contact information has been removed for protecting yourself and your privacy.

        The above list has been updated, We have listed the best options available, also your choice depends on what is perfect for the solar panel system you have.

      • This list is okay but seems like it came from the star ratings off of Amazon and not personal experience. Stick with brand name controllers like EPEver, Outback, Renogy Midnight Solar, etc. I have used all sorts and the cheap no-name ones do not last or will at some point fry your batteries. I now own 5 – 40 amp EPEver MPPT controllers and only monitor the system once a week instead of daily. I also use the Duracell golf cart batteries which have turned out to be a good choice. You should get a good hydrometer to help maintain your batteries and always refill with battery acid or top off with distilled water only. Your batteries will live a lot longer this way.
