Updated Charge Controllers at Renogy
 If you haven't heard the news yet, one of the latest updates in our Renogy store is our ViewStar charge controllers. We now offer 20 Amp and 30 Amp PWM (pulse width modulation) Viewstar charge controllers. These items are sold individually in our store and now also come ready in our RV kits and portable Solar Suitcases. 

Quick Review:
1. What is a charge controller?
 A charge controller regulates the voltage to your batteries during the charging process. It prevents your batteries from overcharging and sending too much charge to your inverter.

2. Do I need one? How does it work?
YES! Charge Controllers are an essential part of almost all power systems. Whether your power source is Solar (PV System), wind, or fuel your charge controller is meant to keep your batteries properly fed and safe for optimal long term use.  

3. So what’s the difference?

Taking Solar to New Places

Since the first modern solar cells came about in the 1950s, people have been constantly looking to expand product options, harness the newest technology, and create the most cost effective solar energy solutions. In the many years between 1950 and 2010, most solar products were bulky, heavy, and susceptible to easy shattering and cracking. In other words, the vast majority of panels were designed for installation by electricians or construction workers, and not by ordinary people. Fast forward to the last ten years or so, and you will find that panels have become lighter, stronger, and designed for increased portability as more people have conceptualized the benefits of using solar energy for new purposes.

Renogy is making efforts to keep up with the new demands presented by customers looking to take their panels to different places and/or use them for different purposes. To demonstrate their commitment to provide cost effective, alternative solar products, Renogy designed the 60W and 100W Solar Suitcase. After several years of customers calling in, asking for smaller, more portable panels for camping and RV traveling, Renogy decided to combine their highly efficient monocrystalline solar cells with a lighter space saving design. What they discovered is that solar power and portability can be utilized together to create a highly efficient battery-charging device.

Even more convenient is the fact that the 60W and 100W Solar Suitcases come with a built-in 10 amp charge controller with full parameter control for a wider range of use. The charge controller also keeps the connected battery from becoming overcharged or discharged with prolonged use. The 10amp charge controller comes with an LCD display and a four level monitoring system that is perfect for helping new solar users monitor and learn about their panels. The solar cells found in the portable suitcase are German made, designed with the highest quality silicon wafers to provide an excellent charge. The panels themselves are small and can be folded in half to create a relatively small carrying suitcase, 13.6x25.4x2.8 inches for the 60W Suitcase and 19.88x27.17x2.36 inches for the 100W Suitcase. The back of each folded panel includes stands for proper positioning under direct sunlight, even if the panel has to be placed on a flat rooftop or the ground. All of the aforementioned features allow users to take their solar panels to new places without having to worry about how much space they consume, whether they will be too heavy, and the dangers of exposed glass coming into contact with sharp objects. Customers who purchase these panels can rest assured that they have purchased a quality product as Renogy guarantees a 25 year power output and 5 year workmanship warranty.

The uses for a 60W or 100W Solar Suitcase are almost endless. These panels can be stored without taking up too much space in an RV or even smaller vehicle, and toted to a destination for battery charging. Alternatively, the panel can be unfolded and tilted on a boat deck for battery charging on the water.  The crocodile clips included in the product package make it easy to connect the panel directly to a battery. Stop depending on a gas powered generator and discover the many uses for a 60W or 100W Solar Suitcase at
