Bill, I agree with you. But is there "One Ring To Rule Them All" yet?
One integrated charge controller, that can see the output from the alternator and solar (MPPT) and wind (dump regulated) and somehow, tell each of those players how to make a symphony? Rather than shutting down two at any given time, or letting them fight it out to control the charging?
Very good question. To my knowledge, there is not. Yet. Sure is a need for one, though :-)
On a similar note, I've been hoping someone would come out with a tuner for HF radios which would simultaneously and harmoniously tune both the antenna AND the RF ground! SGC??? Anybody out there in RF engineering-land???
