Question Where to get PWM and is it worth it???
I'd like to know if anyone who uses a pwm would reccomend using it to someone who doesn't and where to get them.

That looks like a nice kit. There are many around and dozens on e-bay. I consider a PWM a bandaid for an inefficient generator. Some try to claim you can get increased production with a PWM and that is nonsense. All they do is allow you to manually adjust the current going through your generator. Most of the time they are used when an inefficient generator has problems with amp runaway which is when the amps skyrocket when the unit heats up.

I say first make a good, efficient sealed series cell generator. Get it dialed in properly with the correct electrolyte solution. IF you need small adjustments a PWM is one option.

Hmm $189 or $20 for basically the same thing, as far as what we need it for. Simple choice for me. That $189 unit is way overkill to merely control a runaway generator...but that's just my opinion.
