Video Transcript for Review of Goal Zero Solar Charge Controllers - 10 Amp Ring Terminal Connections - GZ79YR

Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Goal Zero 10 amp solar charge controller kit. This is going to allow you to charge your 12 volt battery using your Goal Zero Boulder 50 or Boulder 100 solar panel. Those solar panels are sold separately, but you can find them here at etrailer.com using the part numbers that you see on the screen there. This will allow you to use those solar panels to then charge up your gel, AGM, calcium, flooded lead acid, lithium titanium oxide, or lithium iron phosphate batteries.

So, if you have any of those 12 volt batteries, you're wanting to use your Boulder solar panels, this is gonna be a great kit for you. This does have these ring terminals that will provide a nice, secure connection to your battery's terminals. This is gonna be more of a permanent installation. There's another kit that has alligator clamps if you're wanting a more temporary setup. But this is gonna be for those of you who are gonna wanna charge the same battery frequently.

These will stay mounted onto your battery. And then very easily plugs right into our 15 foot long 12 gauge Goal Zero spade to SAE cable here. So, this is gonna give us 15 feet to work with so that we can have our solar panel in the sun, getting all that sunshine. And then we can have our battery and vehicle, or whatever it is mounted in the shade where it's gonna be nice and cool for us. Our spade connector is going to connect to the bottom of our solar charge controller here.

So, there are indicators. It might be kind of hard to see. There's a positive and a negative right there on the housing so it's easy to keep track of. And then on our solar controller, you can see we've got battery emblem there, and then positive and negative right underneath it. So, that helps us to know how to get that plugged in.

So, very easy to back those screws out a little bit, slide that spade connector in, and then tighten those screws down. We'll be connected. Then we're also going to have this three foot long spade to eight millimeter cable to connect to our Goal Zero solar panel. So, that solar panel is then going to send that electricity into our charge controller. Our charge controller is gonna send it to our battery. So, this is gonna act kind of like the brains of the operation. It's a 10 amp pulse width modulation solar controller that's going to adjust the solar panel's output for a quick but consistent charge of your battery. This does feature automatic multistage charging, so it's gonna switch modes as the battery charges to make sure that it's not going to overcharge and potentially damage the battery. So, it's gonna help extend the battery's life. It's got several different safety features to protect against overcharging, undercharging, reverse polarity, short circuiting, and over voltage. And you can see it does have a nice, digital display that's gonna monitor the amperage, voltage, and battery capacity. Make that very clear for you so you can keep an eye eye on what's going on. This does have a maximum solar array current of 10 amps. A normal input solar array voltage between 15 and 22 volts. Maximum solar array voltage of 25 volts. And it will operate in temperatures ranging from -13 degrees Fahrenheit up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. So, it's gonna hold up really well for you in all sorts of weather environments or temperature environments. As far as our dimensions go, we're looking at right about six inches inches in width by approximately four inches tall, and only about an inch thick. It weighs about one pound, just slightly over one pound. And this does include the metal mounting bracket that's going to allow you to connect your solar charge controller to your Boulder solar panel. So, that's gonna give you a nice mounting location there. This is IP65 rated, so it is going to be weather resistant and dust proof. It's gonna hold up really well for you and allow you to control that power that's flowing in from your solar panel. So, if you do have the Goal Zero Boulder 50 or Boulder 100 solar panel, you're wanting to charge your 12 volt battery, this is gonna be the kit for you. We do have other kits available, like I said, that have the alligator clamp. Or we have a 20 amp charge controller if you have a larger solar panel, we have that available. So, make sure you're getting the right kit for your setup. But if you do have the 50 or 100 solar panel, this is gonna be a great kit to have you more permanently connected to your battery, make it very easy for you to get that battery charged. And that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Goal zero has a decent product, my issue with Goal Zero is you have to purchase everything separately. I feel they do this to hide the high cost of a complete system.
