MIDNITE KID VS. MORNINGSTAR PROSTAR MPPT

We have recently learned from concerned dealers that Morningstar has released a comparison between their new PS-MPPT and the MidNite KID. We took the time to read their comparison for ourselves and, like our customers, had some concerns regarding the comparison. While we understand that good competition encourages better products, we feel that there are some facts that were missed by Morningstar’s comparison.

We have taken the time to do our own evaluation of the MidNite Kid and the Morningstar PS-MPPT. In Our Evaluation we have taken the specs and features line by line that Morningstar used as the basis of their comparison and given you our findings as well as additional information that without, seems to unduly skew the results of their comparison.

In the interest of fairness, we wanted to have links to both Morningstar’s Comparison and Our Evaluation below. Unfortunately, when checking the link to Morningstar’s Comparison, we have discovered that they have relocated it or removed it from their website. We are unable to put it on our website as it is copyrighted. We would encourage you to contact your Morningstar representative for your copy of their comparison. MidNite Solar strives to manufacture the best renewable energy products on the market today. Integrity is a vital component packaged with every unit leaving our factory!

HERE IT IS, THE KID

Now ETL listed to UL1741, CSA 22.2 and UL458. This may be the only MPPT controller listed for use on marine craft and RV’s

The KID is the most versatile medium sized charge controller on the market, ideal for small renewable energy systems. The KID allows for true input paralleling. As your power needs grow, add more modules to the array and a second KID. This will give twice the power from a single array.

The KID’s HyperVOC feature allows up to 162VOC . (The KID will not be harmed by voltages between 150 and 162VDC (this is the HyperVOC range). However the KID will remain in standby until the voltage is 150v or below.)
