I use a Blue Solar regulator MPPT 75/15 by Victron Energy. It works a treat. The only trick is that you need to connect to battery first before solar. This seems to be true for most good MPPT controllers.

This is a true MPPT and is very efficent

I have a GSL Australian designed and produced MPPT.
I have had it now for several years and it has performed well with my 120Watt panel.

I, too, have had excellent results from a larger GSL controller with panels in a series-parallel arrangement, total 440 watts. Big advantage for me is that because it is fan-cooled it can be mounted any way except face down. Most others are convection cooled, requiring upright mounting on a vertical surface and good natural ventilation. Not always possible in a caravan or camper.

It's good to be able to support an Aussie product.

Hi,
I recently brought one of these through ebay.

MPPT controller

So far I am very happy with it.
I decided on this one because of some positive reviews on YouTube.
