    Okay, I get that the MPPT ones are better, so has anyone used this one?
    Or this one

    As it happens, I do have one of each of these. Both are good. The Voltronic one will trickle-charge the starter battery at the same time as doing proper mppt charging of the other battery bank. It cost me 62.24 last year. However, that's the one I keep in my "spares" drawer.

    The Photonic Universe one is the one I use. Mine is badged by the actual maker (Epever) and cost 65.61 (inc delivery). I can't remember if that included the wifi connection module.

    Both are good, but the latter is better, in my view.

    [Later] Just realised that my Epever controller isn't the 120 watt one: it is over 200W - it has 200W of panels connected and has capacity to spare.
    [Later still] I forgot to mention the difference in physical size. The Voltronic one is much smaller. Check the spec if this is an issue for you.

    Perhaps, but for route planning, iGo is a hundred times better. The fact that you can get it on cheap-as-chips hardware that is a bit underwhelming in quality, spec and perforemance as well as seller support does not affect the fact that iGo is vastly better than TomTom

    Mine is a votronic and it does everything I wanted, should cover any battery type you may have (I think) and wil also send a 1 amp charge to the starter battery and will take 50v panels so you could got for domestic panels not just automotive. They look a good unit to me and mine works will although I have the 250 and not the one in the link

    Just to give an idea of how different they are in size...
