go power solar controller

This solar controller prevents harmful overcharging by adjusting the power generated by a solar panel before it reaches your RV batteries. It uses pulse width modulation technology to regulate the output through pulses that provide a consistent charge. Typically, this type of technology is a good fit for smaller systems with lower voltages.


Automatic Multistage Charging System

Using a multistage charging system, the controller automatically switches voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. The controller is compatible with multiple battery types and includes preset charging profiles for sealed/gel, AGM, flooded/wet cell, and lithium batteries.


Charging Modes

  1. Bulk: This mode charges at the full rated load for a quicker recharge time. As the name suggests, this is where the bulk of the charging happens. It typically charges the battery to at least 80% capacity.
  2. Absorption: This mode provides controlled voltage to ensure a full charge. Once the battery reaches between 80% to 90% capacity, the absorption state will kick in and start charging at a regulated voltage. In each charging profile, this mode is set to last for 30 minutes after the bulk charge is completed.
  3. Float: Once the battery reaches full charge, this mode maintains a lower voltage to compensate for self-discharge. This reduces battery stress and minimizes gassing and water loss.
  4. Equalization: On flooded/wet cell batteries, this mode activates to prevent stratification and sulfate buildup during extended float cycles. These two issues can damage a battery by causing the accumulation of acid at the bottom of the battery and hardened sulfate crystals on the battery plates. This mode is especially helpful when your battery is going unused during storage.

Practical, Convenient Features

With Maximum Power Boost Technology, you can simply press a button to activate Bulk mode for the highest charging voltage. This lets you quickly top off your battery bank before the end of the day by capturing as much power as possible.


The backlit, digital display acts as an information center for your solar panel output. It shows the charging current, battery voltage, and battery state of charge. It also allows you to input your battery type and choose a charging profile. Additionally, a built-in USB port on the front of the controller provides a convenient outlet to charge your cell phone or tablet.


Lastly, the controller includes several built-in safety features to help protect your equipment. The charging process will shut down if the controller starts to overheat and when an overcurrent is detected. Also, if the battery or solar panel is wired incorrectly, it activates a reverse polarity alarm.


How It Installs

The solar controller flush-mounts to a wall inside your RV. It is wired to the solar panel using MC4 cables. Then, the battery bank is wired to the terminals on the controller. You can also install a fuse or circuit breaker (sold separately) up to 10 amps between the solar controller and battery for additional current protection.

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the 10-amp GO Power! Flush Mount PWM Digital Solar Controller. Now, a solar controller is an essential component of your photovoltaic solar system. A controller is what'll maintain the life of the battery by protecting it from overcharging. When your batteries have reached 100% state of charge, this controller will prevent overcharging by limiting the current flowing into the batteries from your solar system.This is a temperature-compensated pulse with modulation charging. It does have three battery-charging profiles: sealed gel, AGM, and flooded. And it does offer four-stage charging: bulk, absorption, float, and equalize.If you notice right here, it has a nice backlit LCD screen, which will display the charging current, battery voltage, and the battery state of charge.

It does use the maximum power boost technology, which will let you manually bulk charge at any stage of the charge cycle.On the side here, you pull the plug out, you can see it has a built-in USB charge port. Right there. It does use heavy-duty terminals to provide low-resistance connections. Has battery reverse polarity protection, solar array reverse polarity protection, also overtemperature and overcurrent protection.This unit is compatible with the GO Power! Overlander, the Retreat, the Solar Flex, the Eco Solar, the 80-watt kit only, and the portable solar kit. This is suitable for 12-volt solar systems up to 170 watts or 10 amps.Now the nominal system voltage on this is 12 volts.

Maximum solar panel input voltage is 28 volts. Maximum solar ray current is 10 amps. This is very easy to install. It is flush mountable. It includes the solar controller, the two mounting screws to install it, and a nice user's manual that will describe how to install it, and how to use it.Weight on this is only about nine ounces.

Dimension on it, width is right at four inches. Height on it is going to be also right at four inches. And the depth on it right at one and a quarter inches deep.But that should do it for the review on the 10-amp Go Power! Flush Mount PWM Digital Solar Controller.

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Solar Charging System for RV with 6V and 12V Batteries
  • In order to have multiple solar panels provide trickle re-charging to an array of RV batteries you need to have a controller that can manage the output from the panels. My contact at Go Power! said that most 100 watt solar panels output 20 volts and this is simply to much for 12V and 6V batteries even if multiple ones are wired together. A controller like # 34280503 is essential for ensuring the panels' output is stepped down to the appropriate voltage/current to prevent overcharging. I...
