Advanced 10A solar charge controller with USB port for use with solar panels up to 160W (12V batteries)

SPECIAL NOTICE : If you are purchasing this part for a self build project, please see our terms & conditions. FULFILLED BY PHOTONIC UNIVERSE : This product is fulfilled by Photonic Universe, our Solar partner.



This advanced Photonic Universe 10A 12V solar charge controller is intelligently designed to simultaneously protect and charge a 12V battery.

Safety protection functions:

This solar controller features a full range of safety functions such as protection against reverse current at night (from the battery back through the solar panel), over charge / discharge, overvoltage, over load, short circuit etc. The PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology used in this controller increases charge acceptance and prolongs the life of your battery. PWM technology can also recover some lost battery capacity.

Key features:

This advanced 10A 12V solar charge controller features:

  • A 5V USB port (1.2A output) offering fast charging of USB compatible devices (e.g mobile phones, tablets, mp3 players etc) 
  • A pair of load terminals for connecting 12V loads (such as lights) if desired.
  • Bright LED indicators to show the battery state of charge as well as the status of the solar panel and 12V load. An "on/off" button is also available for the load.



This controller can be used with solar panels up to 160W in total. The highest efficiency of charging 12V battery will be achieved when the controller takes input from solar panels with maximum power voltage 17-20V (such as 80W-160W Photonic Universe solar panels). If your solar panel voltage is higher than 25V, we would recommend one of our MPPT solar charge controllers for maximum efficiency of charging 12V batteries.

This controller is compatible with sealed, gel and flooded batteries - the battery type can be selected by the user.
