    Take your station Off-Grid!

    Add battery backup to your home station or go-kit using our Low Loss PWRGate that uses power MOSFETS for switching instead of lossy diodes! It will also use your existing DC power supply to keep your battery fully charged and ready for action.

    Once your backup battery is in place, add our Solar Battery Charge Controller, the only fully assembled solar charger specifically designed for hams, by hams, to maintain operations over extended time periods with out the need for Grid power or noisy gas generators.

    All our products come fully assembled, ready to use out of the box, w/ ARES standard Anderson power pole connectors.
    Can be used both at home or in your go-kit!
    Low Loss PWRgate $57.95 + $4.95 ship USA
    Solar Battery Charge Controller $39.95 + $4.95 ship USA
    See website below for details

    Hi, what is the voltage drop through the mosfets from the battery?

    And, does the solar charger work on AGM batteries? Is it a 3 or 4 stage controller?

    Hi and thanks for the questions.
    The power path control chip along with the power MOSFET switches reduces the voltage loss to 20mV, much less then the 300-600mV diode drop used in most other power gates.

    The SBCC solar controller is a 3 stage charger for Lead Acid (VRLA,SLA,AGM, WET) batteries, Constant Current/Constant Voltage/Float,
    or it can be ordered with firmware for LiFePO4 and is a 2 stage charger, CC/CV/Off. Let us know if you intend to use the SBCC with a LiFePO4 (4S type) battery.
