Product Overview

The Sunforce 30 Amp Digital Charge Controller is the ideal solution for preventing overcharging of your 12-Volt batteries and protecting solar panels. It contains a digital display that provides either the charging current or the battery voltage on the LCD digital meter. A charge controller is an essential part of nearly all power systems that charge batteries. Its purpose is to keep your batteries properly fed and safe for the long-term. The basic functions of this controller are to block reverse current and protect against battery overcharge, battery discharge, electrical overload, and/or display battery status and the flow of power.

  • Protects battery from overcharge and discharge
  • For use with 12-Volt solar panels and batteries only
  • Handles up to 450-Watt of solar power
  • Handles up to 30 Amp of array current
  • Maintains 12V batteries in a fully charged state
  • Digital display provides charging current and battery voltage on LCD digital meter for added convenience
  • Maintenance free protection of solar panels and batteries

Does this charge controller use a positive or a negative common?

Does this charge controller use a positive or a negative common?
Asked by: Sonicwave
I bought a charge controller, of a different brand. It has a positive common. all the positive terminals, solar, batteries, load, are all connected together inside the unit. The solar, batteries, and load is controlled by the negative. I built my solar array and batteries with common negative ground, using earth ground as negative, and large gauge wire as positive. Why would anybody build an electronic device with a positive common? The controller is totally useless to me, unless I re-wire my system, or find a controller that’s built with common negative, as most d.c. electronics are. So that's my question. Is this Sunforce controller positive or negative common?

How much current does this controller, self consume?

How much current does this controller, self consume?
Asked by: Sonicwave
Very little, only enough to give you the battery readings and whether your panels are charging.

Can I splice the supply wires of two 100 watt (12v) solar panels together and then hook them up to this charge controller

I have two 100 watt panels. I want to know if I can splice the output wires together and then connect to the charge controller or should I get a connection hub
Asked by: TheBear
Yes, I have three panels hook to my system. You can hook up to 30 amps of charging and my three panels have only got up to 6 amps charging.

I use this controller on my solar panels (3) and a wind turbin for my off grid system at a hunting cabin a mile from the nearest electric. It makes sure my batteries do not over charge and also tells me the condition of the charge in the batteries. I have not had a problem with this controller and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect!!! Got this and installed in my class A motor home. It seems to keep the house batteries at full charge even on partly cloudy days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solar Charge Controller Great product for small applications on renewables

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the voltage/amperage reading selection feature. I don't have to add extra amp/voltage meter. It has been performing great connected to my existing solar panels. I will be adding more solar panels soon, to take full advantage of the controller's capabilities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good device at this price range It will be cheaper for the same thing "Coleman 30-Amp Digital Charge Controller". Mine seems like cannot charge beyond 13.0v. To my knowledge, the unit should stop charging your battery roughly around 13.4v; will keep monitoring to see if this is the case...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent choice. Since this was replacing a controller that had stopped working, the installation was simple. And the digital readout is a bonus that we did not have on the old controller.
