Nearly a decade of advanced research, design, and engineering have delivered the most advanced solar charge controller in the world. The Ramsond Sun shield charge controller is microprocessor controlled, extremely compact, light-weight and durable. Using an advanced microprocessor system, the Ramsond SunShield constantly monitors and regulates the voltage and current from the solar panels to the battery. This ensures that the battery is maintained at its optimal charge and prevents it from over-charging and over-discharging. It also prevents the back-feed of electricity into the solar panel from the battery during hours of darkness. The Ramsond Sun Shield is capable of handling virtually all 12V solar panels on the market, with a maximum input capacity of 24 Volts and 8 Amps, and is perfectly suitable for most 12V rated solar panels up to 120 Watts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great basic charger! This is a good basic charger for single-panel solar systems. I have had one in use continuously for several years. Has LED lights to tell you it's on, working, or the battery is charged. It is not waterproof, however, so keep it inside some sort of protection or enclosure. Easy to wire; wires are right there ready to go. November 26, 2013
