Victron Energy Charge Controllers

This brand of controllers is by far the most recommended for their ease of install and use. Bluetooth connectivity and a great Smartphone App make them the no 1. choice by sailors and marine installers.

Victron Energy Sailing provides a huge range of useful information, guides and power requirement calculators. Their equipment is as good as it gets for blue water cruisers. Their software integration is regularly updated and very user friendly.

Epever are also a great economic choice. They are the more economical and less frills controller choice. You will see in the reviews and forums they are gaining a solid reputation and are often found for great prices on Amazon or Solar Shopping Mall.

Solar on a Boat Facebook group is a recommended resource and a very user friendly knowledge base. Its for all things ‘On Water & Off Grid’. We’ve found that most marine situations and power setups are actively covered by the wide group of sailors and professional installers.

Marine How To is one of the better sources of information that includes DIY boating projects such as high output alternators, LiFePo Battery installations and many other marine electric topics.
