Charge Controller Types
Battery charge controllers regulate battery charge for off-grid and hybrid emergency battery back up systems. Keeps a solar or wind system battery array charged and balanced. Our high quality selections are offered primarily for solar and wind energy systems using deep cycle battery packages but can be applied in other applications.
Toboa Energy offers charge controllers as separate devices in conjunction with solar or wind power generator systems. Great for use on RV’s, boats, and off-grid home battery storage systems. In solar applications, charge controllers may also be called solar regulators.
* A series charge controller or series regulator disables further current flow into batteries when they are full.
** A shunt charge controller or shunt regulator diverts excess electricity to an auxiliary or “shunt” load, such as an electric water heater, when batteries are full.
