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? 

Previous Model: Renogy 30 Amp PWM (LCD Display)
     -Ground: Positive Ground System
