Solar charger controllers take energy from your solar panel(s) and use it to charge a battery or a battery bank. There are many different types of solar charge controllers on the market which typically not only have different features and are designed for different battery chemistries but also which offer different efficiencies in terms of working with your solar panels. We are ready to assist with advice on selecting the right equipment for your project(s).
For small scale projects or development work, the Voltaic Systems portable universal batteries are an excellent option as they feature a built-in BMS (battery management system) which includes a charge controller designed specifically for the battery. This approach has the potential to not only simplify your project but also to ensure safety as the Voltaic Systems BMS also deals with issues such as short circuit and over temperature cut off via a built-in resettable fuse subsystem.
