Bioenno Power 12V/24V, 20A Solar Charge Controller (Model SC-122420JUD) is a versatile controller for use in solar systems with an integrated LCD display, that is designed to charge LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries (and AGM/SLA batteries)! This solar controller accepts either 12V/24V input from solar panels and can handle up to 20 Amps. Featuring our proprietary CC/CV (Constant Current/Constant Voltage) circuitry, the solar controller provides a regulated voltage output for charging 12V or 24V LiFePO4 (and AGM/SLA batteries). The solar controller also provides a regulated 12V or 24V output for electrical loads (depending on whether a 12V or 24V battery is used). Solar controllers are required for all solar systems in order to maintain a regulated output voltage to charge batteries and for maintaining a regulating output voltage for loads.
Please note that for any solar setup in which you are using a panel in conjunction with a battery and/or a load a solar charge controller is absolutely necessary. DO NOT plug a panel directly into your battery or your load!
This controller does not boost voltage from the solar panel, but instead will regulate a high panel voltage from 50V downwards.
DC Barrel Plugs included.

To Charge AGM/SLA Batteries - Override Procedure
To charge AGM batteries, you have to setup an override in the controller as follows:
The solar controller has an override feature to charge LiFePO4, SLA and AGM batteries. Attach the battery first to the controller, then see below:1) The 1st screen is the battery voltage also known as the "home" screen.2) Push the left red button. The second screen is the float voltage of the solar panel to the battery (13.8VDC).3) The 3rd screen is the charge voltage of the battery (14.4VDC).4) The 4th screen is the regulated voltage to the load (12.6VDC)5) Screen 5 is the cutoff voltage (10.8VDC)6) Screen 6 is a timer screen that is not implemented7) Screen 7 is the battery type. By default "b00" is for Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. To charge SLA/AGM batteries, hold the left button for 6 seconds, and the "b00" display will start flashing, then push the right button to change to "b01".Screen 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 are hard-coded (hard-programmed) -- there's nothing that you would change on those screens.

When I received my call sign a few years back, I was flooded with purchases of junk. Fast forward to 2019. I decided I wanted to build another option, not a dealer who has the same stuff as everyone else, but a dealer who actually uses what he sells. And that’s exactly what I do. If you see a product on this page or one of our tables at Hamfest, you can bet we have tried it and like it. From Radios to connectors we strive to bring you QUALITY. Sure, you can find it cheaper and we understand that, but if you don’t want to buy it again in 6 months, take a look at what we sell and have already approved. I am always just a phone call away.
