Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says, but beware this simple single stage switch on/off type charger and has limited value. I was using my leisure battery happily using a PWM charge and 60 watt solar panel plus 240 volt inverter without problems, however I swapped the charge regulator for this one as needed to use the PWM unit elsewhere and the inverter did not like on off pulse this unit outputs when solar panel in near full sun, I even tried another inverter of different make but same problem. Bottom line is if you wonФЗЦt be drawing from the battery whist charging this charge may be ok, otherwise use a two or three stage PWM charger or even MPPT.

I've  been told it is is sensible to have a regulator even tho i only intend to buy a 5watt solar panel for use with 60ah leisure battery. My question is there any particular type of regulator which is best for my needs or are they basically the same?

Asked by: Stevie
They are not all the same but a cheap one will work fine.

At what voltage does the unit switch on? I do not want the car battery to drop too low to start the car before the unit allows charging from a solar panel.

Asked by: CFaed
Devices like this will normally come on around the 12.3 to 12.5v mark.
