12 electronics direct to chargw controller

    Hi, Is there any dangers in connecting a 12v electronic device to the load output from a charge controller? I don't expect the batteries to go low as they are over rated. My worry is the fluctuations above and below 12v, is there normally a voltage regulator on the load output so it is always close to 12v?.

    This would depend on your controller.

    I am using 12v 10A MPPT charge controller with 12V leisure battery connected for my greenhouse automation. I am constantly monitoring the load output as the automation is based on the voltage. It goes up to 14.3V but does not drop below 11.7V.
