Solar Regulator replacement

 Can anyone recommend a good quality (without costing a shitload) solar regularator.

Want to replace the one that's currently in the campervan.

I’d say the Sun.....

Replace it with what’s in it.  

Failing that set yourself a budget and hit EBay . 

I got a dual battery capable one four years ago that feeds my batteries on the centre console from a 60 watt panel . Hasn’t missed a beat yet .

How big do you need? I use Morningstar 20 amp for most of my portable panels and the van when we had it ran a 30 amp and never had any issues.

 Cheers Fox,

Yeah 30 should be plenty. 

 

250 watt on the van.

 

The one that was in it is annoying as it has a low battery alarm that comes on at 3 in the morning. I don't care that the batteries are low but it pisses me off that you've got an alarm beeping every ten minutes.

We use morning star for all our regulators and inverters, best value for money.
