Just finished installing a solar panel and dual output charge controller. TBH, I think the controllers are utter shite! Seems like they're nearly all made by one Chinese manufacturer, then 'branded' as necessary.

I'm calling my domestic bank no.1 and cranking battery no.2 (makes life simpler as my mains charger is the same)

To complicate the issue, the cranking battery is a wet SEALED item, but the two (parallel) domestic batteries are NOT sealed

Question... What 'frequency should the regulator be set at? 25, 50 or 100Hz ?

I don't know the ins and outs of it all but I left my dual output controller at the default 25Hz and it works perfectly. 240w of solar charging 450ah of battery bank.
