    I just got this BT-1 bluetooth adapter from Amazon to plug into my Renogy charge controller that is now connected to my solar panel charging my 12v battery.

    This allows me to view everything and control things from my phone with an app. Screenshot_2021-01-17-13-49-30.jpeg Screenshot_2021-01-14-08-20-39.jpeg

    So basically you turned the solar array I to a trickle charger for the 12v? Is there a bms installed as well to not overcharge?

    That's cool. The module has a power draw for memory then?

    I've been watching this for quite sometime. Finally decided to reply. How beneficial is this and would there be other options like adding a "power station" to trickle charge?

    Trickle charge is all able to be adjusted through the bluetooth app.

    You need the bluetooth adapter to be able to do changes in the controller.

    This is also a top solar charge controller. I installed it in my prius. He has already integrated the Bluetooth interface.
