I actually bought two of those: one is a charger and one is a load control. Not that expensive actually! These controllers are so simple, I barely looked at the manual.

Thank you guys! I had my doubts, but the staff from a1solar explained to me how to size a controller for the system and this is what i ended up choosing. and yeah, it fits my solar like a glove!

The controller is absolutely fine. It is a good price and it does well. at least my battery doesn’t get overcharged like it used to, so i hope this one will last longer than my last.

Yes, it should.
I see the maximum voltage, but does it have minimum voltage to operate?

The minimum voltage is 9V
hi, what kind of cable fits there?

Good day. The largest wire that will do is 35 mm2 or 2 AWG.
