Schneider Electric Conext SW 4024 Inverter/Charger by Peter Bergquist
Schneider Electric Conext SW 4024 Inverter/Charger Schneider SW4024 ROCKS!
This baby is the real deal as in inverter charger. Simple to set up, and easy to use. Quite frankly you will also need the control panel (SCP) to monitor and control the system, but to be expected with this sort of setup. It powers the entire off-grid camp including all appliances/lights/etc, was... (more)

altE Poly 120 Watt 12V Solar Panel Alt-e 120 volt panels in an RV
I have been very pleased with my 480 watt (4 panels) system managed by a Tri-Star 45 amp PWM controller. The system keeps my 4, 6v. golf cart wet cell batteries fully charged when boondocking. I typically run fantastic vents for about 6 hrs. during the day and also run a Samsung Residential Refri... (more)

Midnite Solar The KID, 30A MPPT Charge Controller, 150V, Black The KID - leave it on the boat
I bought and installed two Outback Flexmax 60s in two off-grid homes I own. They are solidly engineered, work flawlessly and were very easy to install. For a third installation with only 600W of modules, I decided to save the couple of hundred dollars and purchase a KID instead. This was a mista... (more)

Dankoff Slowpump 2507-24 24VDC SURFACE PUMP I will never buy another Dankoff
I purchased this pump to pump water from a shallow well up a hill on our farm. From the first time I turned it on it had lots of cavitation noise. After reworking the plumbing multiple times, I still didnt get it to run smoothly and within a day the pump head broke a pin on the inside of the hea... (more)

Samlex/Cotek 3000W 48V Pure Sine Wave Inverter (Heavy Duty) by Thomas Angle
Samlex/Cotek 3000W 48V Pure Sine Wave Inverter (Heavy Duty) Repair Service a Rip off
The inverter works well. I sent it in for repair and they sent me back a different Inverter. The one I sent in for repair was brand new and the one I got back had a lot of miles on it. When I contacted Cotek, they said there is nothing they could do. It will be the last time I purchase anything C... (more)

Xantrex C40 Solar Charge Controller 40A, 12/24/48V by Mark Hirst
Xantrex C40 Solar Charge Controller 40A, 12/24/48V Extremely Reliable
Ive had a Rev-A unit in continuous operation since June 2000 at a remote cabin site on a small 300W 12V solar panel system charging a pair of Rolls CH375 batteries. The batteries are still going strong after 14 years.

If you cant afford a MPPT controller this is definitely the way to... (more)

Midnite Solar MNBCM Battery Capacity Meter by Larry Pohl
Midnite Solar MNBCM Battery Capacity Meter It does the job it\'s intended for.
If you want a meter that will give precise readings of your batteries condition, this is not the meter for you.

Like any meter that works solely off of battery voltage, it will give different reading at different load levels. Its simply because batteries read a lower voltage under lo... (more)

Ive been using two Laing D5/090B pumps for several years, and they have run trouble-free circulating hot propylene glycol solution in a solar radiant heat floor application. However, the /090 does not move quite enough fluid (even with the check valve removed), so Im back for a /710. My one com... (more)

Pros:
