Solar Controller Positioned to 100% charge Batteries!

Most solar panels have their controllers mounted to the back of the solar panel for convenience. This causes a voltage DROP from the controller to the battery meaning that the battery never fully charges. With our systems we mount the MPPT controller as close to the batteries as possible to eliminate this voltage loss and allow your batteries to be fully charged.

However, MPPT controllers only work when connected to the battery FIRST. This means any supply with a controller on the back of a panel cannot effectively use an MPPT controller as in this position it is connected to the panelĀ first!
