This solar only 30A charge controller is designed by Midnite Solar for small to medium-sized renewable energy systems and is ideal for use with cabins, boats, RVs, or similar applications. The KID utilizes maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technology to optimize the output of your PV array. It is certified to UL1741 and UL458 (marine supplement). The Marine model meets very strict vibration, environmental, and thermal requirements.
Midnite Solar has developed two models for the KID charge controllers; the standard KID (black) and the KID-Marine (white).
The selection process is fairly simple for the KID controller; all you need to know is where you plan on using your KID. The standard KID is perfect for land use, while the KID-Marine should be used for boats or in harsh environments.
