Charge Controllers - KID
Product: MNKID-HWB
Price: $ 520.00


WARNING the standard Wind/Hydro Kid is not protected from over voltage, If you have a turbine that can produce more than 149 Volts DC you MUST use one of our Clippers. See the WIND KID and Clipper bundles instead. Overvoltage damage will NOT be covered under warranty

With the UL458 marine supplement, THE KID meets very strict vibration, environment, and thermal requirements.

Comes standard with wall mounting bracket. Model number MNKID-B for the Black standard and MNKID-W for the White standard version. Standard versions can be cut into the wall for a flush mount assembly and also come with a surface mount wall adapter to mount on the wall.

AGS (Auto Generator Start)
The Kid is the first charge controller in the industry to feature a two wire Automatic Generator Start (AGS) as standard equipment. The KID detects when the generator is running by simply watching battery voltage over time. No extra wires or voltage sensing is required making installation a snap.

I'm frequently asked why customers would buy a Wind Kid from us rather than a Competitors controller. I like this question because it's so easy to answer!
  • It's made right here in Arlington, Washington USA by US workers
  • It costs much less than the competitors controllers
  • It can handle Wind or Hydro turbines with true MPPT tracking or using the many unique settings available for customizing it to a specific turbine
  • It has generator start with gen start verification (find THAT in a Chinese controller!)
  • It has no fans and is sealed for harsh environments
  • It's backed by a 5 year warranty
  • And although I may be a bit biased, it's supported by the best technical support team in the USA
