my old? small steca 1010 (10amps)
has lasted longer than the 2 x 20 watt cheap flexible panels it was matched to
(when the covering plastic on a flexible solar panel starts UV peeling after a few years....it's not going to end well)
the regulator has probably lasted well because it was over-rated...........always a good idea imho
so popular the chinese copy, of the 30amp version, is only a tenth the price oem....bet it wouldn't last long at 25amps ...
life is short
without fear or prejudice

Yep definitely go for something better. That unit is NOT MPPT, just a simple PWM. Well worth getting an MPPT reg and you don't have to spend too much more to step up.
However, you do get what you pay for. They get better the more you spend.
This one is German made.

Lustys have a nice Victron MPPT controller that works amazingly well for me.
