To store the power from your solar panel in your auxiliary battery, you need a charge controller to regulate the voltage from the panel. This 10A PWM charger from Renogy is the best entry level controller you can buy, and pairs perfectly with a 100W panel to keep your battery topped off and your fridge, Propex, and interior lights powered.

Charging is done over 4 stages, with selectable charge profiles for Gel, SLA, flooded, or LiFePo4 batteries. The controller is capable of unlatching the BMS on a LiFePo4 battery that has been fully discharged, frozen or overheated. Basic status feedback is provided through the LCD screen.

This PWM controller isn't as efficient as the MPPT controller in the DC-DC Charger and Solar Charge Controller - you should expect as much as 30% of your panel's power to be lost through the PWM regulation. However, if you don't need to squeeze every bit of power from your panel into your battery, this PWM controller comes at a price that can't be beat.

Note: wiring and hardware are not included, as they will vary depending on where you locate this controller and your battery.

As much as we would love to offer every nut and bolt you could possibly need for your VW Van, it is just not in your best interest to buy everything directly from us. The reality of today’s internet business environment is such that a small company like ours simply cannot compete with the bigger guys. As such, we have decided instead to partner up with larger companies so you can get the best deal.

While we may get a small commission for directing you to the best available price, this comes at no additional cost to you. We only affiliate ourselves with products that we have personally used, sold before, or that have come highly recommended by people in the VW van community.

We will continue to focus our attention on our GoWesty Innovations—that you just won’t find anywhere else because, well, they are GoWesty Innovations!
