If you’ve been following Renogy, you’ve probably seen all of the new products introduced in 2016. From new solar suitcases to generators, Renogy has been hard at work designing products to better suit customer needs. When Renogy first launched years ago, it only carried basic 10A and 30A PWM solar charge controllers. While these controllers were inexpensive, they weren’t entirely user friendly and customers often had to call in with questions. It wasn’t long before we figured out that customers would be willing to pay a little more for a better designed charge controller, so we set out to develop a state-of-the-art line of controllers that are both easier to install and use. We decided to call this new line the “Traveler Series,” keeping in line with the company’s outdoors and adventure theme.
The earlier introduced “new and improved” charge controllers included the Adventurer 30A PWM Charge Controller and the Wanderer 30A Charge Controller. Unlike the basic controllers that Renogy previously carried, the Adventurer and Wanderer are compatible with sealed, gel, and flooded batteries. The Adventurer Charge Controller features an LCD display screen that shows the current power generation, temperature, voltage, and charging current. Perhaps most importantly, the Adventurer is designed for clean flush mounting in RVs, trailers, and boats. The LCD and mounting features were not found on many of the first generation charge controllers. Renogy has received a great deal of positive feedback from customers, especially those using the charge controllers in recreational vehicles. The Adventurer 30A Charge Controller is included in all RV Solar Kits and the Wanderer 30A Charge Controller is included in all standard Starter Kits greater than 50W, all standard Premium Solar Kits, and all standard Complete Kits.
In mid 2016, Renogy introduced the Commander MPPT Charge Controller. The “MPPT” stands for Maximum Power Point Tracking technology, meaning that this controller will more efficiently charge the battery bank. This controller is also compatible with sealed, gel, and flooded batteries, making it more versatile than the original MPPT controllers offered by Renogy. In addition to MPPT technology, this controller also features Multiphase Synchronous Rectification for improved system performance. Although it is a pricier option, its tracking efficiency is as high as 99%, while the conversion efficiency is up to 98%. The Commander Charge Controller is offered as an upgrade in the Starter, Premium, and Complete Solar Kits. The Commander is offered in three options: 20A, 40A, and 60A.
