All in one Hybrid Inverter Charger with Solar Controller All-in-One

Hi guys,


I'm doing some research for my solar system and came across Hybrid Inverter Charger with Solar Controller All-in-One. These systems seem simple enough and easy to setup compared to the traditional solar system and the price is relative lower overall.



Anyone have any idea how well the Hybrid Inverter Charger All in One performs compared to the traditional solar setup? Any insights would be helpful as I'm at the stage where I'm about to finish framing the inside of my bus and moving on to setting up all the electrical and plumbing as well as installing the mini-split AC.



Thank you,
Thomas-TLTAdventures

No direct experience. Lots of products in this space. Provide a link and you may get more feedback.

I'm somewhat gunshy of all-in-one devices-if part of the system fails and you need to return it for repair, the whole system is down...

Yes, "simpler" (as in supposedly easier to use) multi - function

is attractive to low information buyers

usually translates to poor quality, one part maybe fits the use case but the other(s) don't

Best is to educate yourself, and choose each device

sized for your specific objectives and preferences

and best of breed for each function

usually works out much better value long term.

It also depends on the needs of your system. For instance, if all you're doing is running a small 12 volt cooler and some lights, no air conditioning, not big draws, a simpler system may work. Jump up to a Class A with dual air conditioners, 110VAC refrigerator freezer, using a 110VAC welder on occasion.... you're going to want to go with the big boys and pump out the $1,284 (currently) price for a Victron inverter/charger/transfer switch and some hundreds more for the controllers, dongles, etc.

I've been running a GroWatt SPF 6000T DVM for about 6 months in my home and have been pleased with the performance. Due to lithium batteries, I do not use the charge controller.

The MPP Solar 3048LV-MK is what I plan on using for my bus build.
