Xantrex XW4548 Inverter/Charger 865-1005 by Richard Warner
Xantrex XW4548 Inverter/Charger 865-1005 Customer Service Was Great
We had an XW4548 Inverter/Charger for a year and then its ability to interface with our backup generator failed. Talked with customer service and they got a new unit (not a refurbished unit) sent out promptly. Down time without electricity was only two nights.

Good job Xantrex (Schnei... (more)

Midnite Solar MNBCM Battery Capacity Meter by Travis Austin
Midnite Solar MNBCM Battery Capacity Meter Total 100% Junk
Do not buy this for a solar/renewable system. This thing is correct twice a day just like a dead clock.

It has no delay when discharging. It will fall like a rock and wont display anything even close to the truth.

When charging it is even more worthless if that is even poss... (more)

Battery Desulphator BD-2 V2 (Increased pulse voltage for larger battery banks) by Egills Evalds
Battery Desulphator BD-2 V2 (Increased pulse voltage for larger battery banks) BD-2 V2 Works
My emergency set up - KYOCERA KD135 panel feeding 2 T105-RE batteries and a Power Bright inverter - was getting tired. The batteries, 2 years old, would not accept or deliver the current as before. My test is to run the washing machine once a month at 85A for ~ 1/2 hour and then measure the volta... (more)

Conext MPPT 60A 150V Solar Charge Controller by Matthew Edelen
Conext MPPT 60A 150V Solar Charge Controller Malfunctioned but good support
Mine began malfunctioning after less than a year of use in my jungle location, but Xantrex (Shneider) replaced it under warranty. I really like the charge controller, and the menus and manual were helpful and not too difficult to figure out. Getting thick cables routed into the electrical connect... (more)

Southwest Wind Power Air Breeze Wind Turbine Land 160W 48V by Graham Jensen
Southwest Wind Power Air Breeze Wind Turbine Land 160W 48V Southwest Air Breeze Wind Turbine 12v
I bought one of the southwest 12v wind turbines in 1988 for my off-grid solar cabin in the Sierra foothills where it produced reliable and trouble-free power for years before I upgraded to a larger 48v system. It worked extremely well for my site and application because it supplemented my solar i... (more)

Sunlinq P3-62 62W 12V Portable Power Pack Black by JOHN ROBISON
Sunlinq P3-62 62W 12V Portable Power Pack Black Portable power when power is gone
Having a pair of these and P30s to charge a Xantrex 1500 battery has been great on sunny days when the power goes out. A mppt controller from Solar Converters, keeps the battery charged while powering a freezer. In 2008, Hurricane Ike rolled thru and knocked out power for 7 days. Nice to have a ... (more)

PT 12/24-10TC,12/24V MPPT Charge Controller by JOHN ROBISON
PT 12/24-10TC,12/24V MPPT Charge Controller Good controller for Global Solar products
This controller has been my test bed and workhorse with disaster events while working with Global Solar foldable solutions. While needing parity two panels, this controller has stood the test. At the present, it is used to charge a Xantrex 1500 paired with two banks of 62 & 30W panels. The fr... (more)

Heliodyne VFS 5-100 LPM Vortex FlowSensor by Amy Beaudet
Heliodyne VFS 5-100 LPM Vortex FlowSensor Great fr DTCs for larger systems
This sensor is used with many higher end DTCs to measure flow and temperature (with another temp sensor as well) to calculate BTUs generated. Im using mine with a Heliodyne DeltaT Pro for a small space heating system at my house. Its great to see how many BTUs are generated by the sun.

Dometic Gas Refrigerator 8 Cu Feet White by PAUL KENT
Dometic Gas Refrigerator 8 Cu Feet White RGE400 flawless since 2005
We decided to go with gas refrigeration here 25 miles from the Washington Monument after reviewing the power interruptions we experienced, culminated by Hurricane Isabel in 2003. Our two Servel units arrived in early 2005, and by late spring, they were running and the electric one they replaced w... (more)

Hi-Efficiency MPPT Solar Charge Controller by Edward Dijeau
Hi-Efficiency MPPT Solar Charge Controller BZ500 works best at 48 Volts input.
The MPPT500 is a great charge contoler for a stand alone solar panel system. It is one of the few that not only boosts the current going into the batteries but also will fully top off the batteries without overcharging and boiling them off. Other charge controlers that have MPPT and Absolute floa... (more)

EL SID Brushless DC Circuilating Pump for 30W - 40W Solar Panel by john madsen
EL SID Brushless DC Circuilating Pump for 30W - 40W Solar Panel They will leak and fry themselves.
I used two of the El Sid solar circulation pumps and both died after about 3 years. The o-ring starts leaking and then the electronics get wet and fry. If I were to ever get the El sid again (which I will not) I would put some RTV high temp silicon between the impeller housing and the stainless c... (more)

Kyocera KC85TS 85W 12V Solar Panel with J-Box by Darren Murphy
Kyocera KC85TS 85W 12V Solar Panel with J-Box Great Panel
I bought this panel for our RV. Like a lot of you I started with the Harbor Freight Junk that underperformed.

This panel was reaching its specs by 8:30 in the morning and putting out 5.6 amps by 11:00

I would buy it again. (more)

CM/R-50 Remote LCD Digital Display with 50 Ft Cable Go MPPT
As a follow up to my other c40 review. After 2 years of ownership this unit has been sold on ebay as it never did its job, whatsoever. Throughout the 2 years at my cabin I was constantly running the generator and it eventually let me batteries get so low that they ultimately failed on multiple o... (more)

Solar Boost SB50DL Solar Charge Controller with Display by Damon Swank
Solar Boost SB50DL Solar Charge Controller with Display SB50DL MPPT
Built solar system mounted on the top of RV perhaps five years ago.

Mounted six 165w panels using the SB50DL MPPT charge controller. Worked fine out of the box -- I set the little dip switches for 24v input from the panels.

No problems. Just the way things should be.

Delta-T PRO Differential Temperature Controller (with Ethernet) by Michael Grall
Delta-T PRO Differential Temperature Controller (with Ethernet) firmware v4.2 is good
I originally purchased the Delta-T Pro Ethernet because it could drive a variable speed pump and claimed web monitoring. Variable speed pump control worked well out of the box, but I was disappointed when web monitoring did not function. The folks at Heliodyne worked with me to troubleshoot and i... (more)

GNB Absolyte Gp 6-90G15, 12V, 700Ah Durability Factors
We use these bateries in remote mountain-top solar applications for which they are well suited, especially if the stand-by telecoms load is a small % of the over-all battery capacity (massive battery plant). The main longevity factors with these are over-temperature and over-charging. Either one ... (more)

Kyocera KD210GX-LPU 210W 18V Solar Panel by Scot Garneau
Kyocera KD210GX-LPU 210W 18V Solar Panel not bad panel but..
They do have a high reflection glare off of them, my schotts do not have the same glare. Not a big issue for me as I can direct the glare to other panels or light up a room in the house, in winter. (more)
