    Have a look at his feedback ( Not as described. Not MPPT )
    There is a lot of feedback like this

    I've look at the same thing.
    I'm looking for a MPPT controller as well at a reasonable price.

    From the picture of its internals it is impossible to be mppt

    I have the same as Sean00. Very pleased with it's performance. I believe Techno100 (Andy) has the same.

    I have also the same one, following recommendations by Techno 100.

    Last month (early December - low winter sun @ 48 °N) in The Alsace it was producing about 80 watts from 2 x 100 watt panels in the middle of the day when the sky was clear

    We get hit for about £16 to £17 by parcelfarce in UK.
    Realistically it is worth way above anyway . If a UK retailer took it up it would be £150 plus
