Any solar panel that is rated 12W or higher requires the use of a charge controller to regulate the current and voltage to the battery. Charge controllers are able to prevent 12V batteries from overcharging or discharging, and reduce overall maintenance to help prolong battery life. A simple two-LED display shows that the solar panel is functioning and whether your battery is charging or fully charged. Choose this 8A plug-n-play charge controller for up to 120W of solar charging. They work with all 12V batteries and solar panels. You can connect up to seven Nature Power 18W solar panels to one 8A solar charge controller.

  • Maximum Solar Panel Output: 120Watts / 8 Amps
  • Dimensions: 5" x 4" x 1 1/2"
  • Warranty: One year

          Installed the product as directed, went through proper hook up between the battery and the solar charger. The product indicated "charging" but never indicated "charged" and in fact the battery discharged. By passed the Controller and battery remained charged. YOU SHOULD HAVE A NO STAR OPTION!

            I anchor my boat to save on cash. Transporting heavy batteries and equipment very difficult. I can now recharge my batteries, spare battery, phones, radio etc. I love it.

            The system is working brilliantly

            Comments about Nature Power 12V Solar Power Charge Controller, 130W/8A:

            Here is how I put together my solar charging system. One: RDK PRODUCTS 15W Semi-Flexible Monocrystalline Solar Panel. The solar panel was mounted on my t-top. Made my own Y-connector so I could run a charge controller to each battery. Two: RDK PRODUCTS 8 Amp Charge Controller, Dim 5" x 4" x 1 1/2", 120W/8A. The charge controllers were installed in the center console. All connections were silver solder and then adhesive-lined heat shrink tubing. Ring terminals directly to the battery terminals with dielectric grease. The system is working brilliantly for now. The charge controllers don't look to be marine grade not sure how long they will last. Only time will tell.
