I went with this one -- it's the same as what Renogy sells as their "LED" controller. I'm happy with it. Works well-- I have a 160 watt on the roof pulling in 9amps. I only lose .5 at the battery. That's pretty good for a pulse controller. Adjustable LCD 60A 30A 12V 24V Solar Panel Battery Charge Controller Regulator | eBay





Not too big--

If you want a smoking deal on a good 160 watt US made, 25 year panel for about .90 a watt-- check this out. Adjustable LCD 60A 30A 12V 24V Solar Panel Battery Charge Controller Regulator | eBay I got mine in hand in 5 days. Great panel -- sturdy and delivers just under 9amps. Can't beat that.

Don't cheap out on the charge controller. Spend the money on something that is proven. If you want PWM then look at Trimetric....
SC-2030 Solar Charger — 30 Amps Max- 12 or 24V PWM type - Bogart Engineering

If you want to go with MPPT I would get Morningstar.

Or go cheap and add an extra panel to the roof to make up for what you are loosing in the charge controller.
Whatever you get make sure the charge voltages are user adjustable so that you can program it for your specific battery. Not just generic lead acid or AGM settings.

Cheers
