Genasun Waterproof MPPT Voltage Boosting Solar Controller for LiFEPO4 Batteries

The Genasun GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof solar controller is an excellent choice for anyone who needs a high-quality, efficient, and reliable solar charge controller for their LiFePO4 battery system in a harsh, wet or marine environment. Here are some reasons why:

  • Waterproof Design: The GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof controller is designed with a fully waterproof and dustproof casing, making it ideal for use in wet and harsh outdoor environments. It can handle exposure to rain, saltwater, and other moisture and humidity without any damage.
  • Designed for LiFePO4 Batteries: Like the non-waterproof version, the GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof controller is specifically designed to work with LiFePO4 batteries, which have different charging requirements than traditional lead-acid batteries. It uses advanced algorithms to optimize the charging process and ensure that your batteries are charged safely and efficiently.
  • High Efficiency: The GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof controller boasts an impressive 99% efficiency rating, which means that it converts nearly all of the power generated by your solar panels into usable energy for your batteries.
  • Advanced MPPT Technology: The GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof controller uses advanced Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology to maximize the amount of energy your solar panels produce, ensuring that your batteries are charged as efficiently as possible.
  • Intelligent Battery Management: The GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof controller includes a number of built-in safety features to protect your batteries from overcharging and over-discharging, ensuring that they have a long and reliable lifespan.
  • Easy to Install and Use: The GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof controller is designed for easy installation and setup, with a simple and intuitive user interface that makes it easy to monitor and control your solar power system.

Overall, the Genasun GV-8 LiFePO4 Waterproof solar controller is a top-quality choice for anyone who needs a reliable and efficient solar charge controller that can handle the harsh and wet environment. Its waterproof design, specialized design for LiFePO4 batteries, high efficiency, advanced MPPT technology, intelligent battery management, and user-friendly interface make it an excellent investment for anyone who wants to power their life with solar energy in wet or marine environments.

    High-Speed MPPT: Always on Target

    Not all Maximum Power Point Tracking controllers were created equal. Most use a “sweep and sleep” method that scans every 30-60 seconds. That’s okay for a clear day, but traditional controllers are constantly off target when used on vehicles or in changing cloud conditions – exactly when power is scarce and is needed the most. Genasun controllers adapt to changing light conditions 15 times every second. They are always on target, capturing every bit of available sunshine. Simply put, other controllers can’t keep up.

    Wide Power Band

    Efficiency matters.  Many controllers are designed simply to not burn up at high power levels, sacrificing efficiency in low light.  At Genasun, we understand that a watt-hour collected during bad weather is worth even more than a watt-hour collected on a sunny day.  We tuned our power conversion circuitry to maintain high efficiency over the full range of power levels.  Whereas other controllers may charge with efficiencies as low as 80% or worse in low light, the GVB-8 maintains greater than 95% efficiency while operating at only 10% of its rated input (94% for 12V models).  When other controllers have given up and are draining your battery, the GVB-8 will still be charging.

    LED Indicator

    The built-in LED will quickly tell you that you’ve installed the controller correctly. Simple to read, it will also let you know when the battery is charging from solar power, and when the battery has reached full charge.

    Partial Shade Punch

    Genasun controllers shine in partial shade. The 50% power increase from Genasun’s advanced MPPT is often enough to prevent system downtime from partial shade. From antennas and sailboat rigging, to street signs and tree branches, to coffee cups and stickers placed on panels by pedestrians, Genasun MPPT keeps partially shaded solar panels generating more power than any other controller.

    No Fans. No Relays.

    Fans get clogged with dust and dirt. Relays eventually stop switching. Genasun controllers use advanced electrical design that obsoletes these parts. With no moving parts to wear out, Genasun controllers outlast the competition.
