    Amazing isn't it? They also "copy" Victron charge controllers and probably many other products. I'd be interested in seeing a head to head comparison of this FM 80 and the real thing, performance and quality.

    Even the 2" lcd is visibly exactly like the real thing. I have the Victron version. You would think the OEM's would blow a gasket seeing their products copied like this.
