Gently used MorningStar TSMPPT 60 for SALE $420 - AS NEW

MT1912MT1912 Posts: 17Registered Users ✭✭
Hello,
I have a TSMPPT 60 solar charge controller for sale, looks like new and working 100%. No issues whatsoever, these are built like tanks and perform great. There is only one smaller hole punched out from the side, all the others are still plugged in. The unit was always in controlled environment, never exposed to outdoor elements.
Asking $420, will ship for free with original packaging and everything it came with.
Thanks.

    Does it have the battery temp sensor, all original paperwork and original packaging? Any other accessories ?

    Yes, everything including original box. No additional accessories though, just what it came with. It's out of warranty already, but I never really heard of any of these go bad.

    I agree. Also, pictures of actual unit can be sent on demand.

    Not being critical but the asking price is $50 over new with warranty, like anything second hand the value drops immediately after purchase, just a thought, today I sold my lightly used pickup, 32 000Km in 4 years took a 30% loss, nature of the game. Perhaps  $399 would be where people would be interested, again no insult intended.

    I'm asking $100 less than a new one, I'm not sure where you see $50 OVER the new one. If you add tax and shipping charges (depending on stores), it might be more than $100 savings over a new one.
    I agree with a car, it immediately drops value after you pull out of the dealership. This is not a car though. But thanks for your input.

    ?  I'm still seeing $598 , I've never seen these cost less. Am I missing something?
  • littleharbor2littleharbor2 Posts: 1,027Solar Expert ✭✭✭✭
    Pretty much $598.00, or more, all over the internet.

    $550.20  Is the price I see, from the host, or am I a special customer? Not likely....perhaps I'm asleep and dreaming.
    Wake me up someone. All in humor of course , although humor is sensitive area to make  comment, please understand.

    This looks like you're saying the "new" price is $450.00

    OK perhaps you see a different page to the one I linked,  register an account to receive the discount, that's what I see, honest, I wouldn't BS you $550.20.

    You're right, after logging in I see $550.20. In that case I can lower my price by another $50 to be $100 less than a new one. So, $450.

    Had to log into my account at the store page, it worked, interesting. So being logged onto the forum doesn't mean you're logged in at the store.

    Sorry for letting the cat out of the bag, $100 less than new would be reasonable with shipping included, better someone finds out before, rather than later, if you understand the implication.

    I have no idea what you're saying. Can you elaborate?
  • mcgivormcgivor Posts: 2,205Solar Expert ✭✭✭✭✭
    This forum is a community of people, each with the access to create an account with the host, if someone was to purchase at the original price, only to find later, they could have paid $50 more for a new warranty covered unit, they may be less than happy. If on the other hand they saved $100 without warranty and we're happy with the deal, then everything is status quo.

    I still don't know where you are getting your "facts". I AM selling it $100 less and it was free shipping from the beginning. Check the original post again.

    I understand you are selling for $100 less than new, including shipping, this is good, might be a great deal for someone  in the community, no argument implied.

    All good then.
    And even IF I was selling it only $50 less, it is everyone's responsibility to do their research on the price. Once you pull the trigger, you can't be mad at seller you bought from (as far as price goes).

    I have never noticed, but there is a banner that scrolls by saying "login to see the lowest available prices" on our host's (Northern Arizona Wind & Sun) home page. And a 5% off coupon/discount for new customers.

    Bad "moderator"--I don't even have an account with the mother ship....

    I guess have become "blind" to moving/blinking etc. stuff on the the old Internet (that and ad blockers+NoScript. B)

    Good sometimes to just know the glasses are close by....
    I have sent clients to the store here for Arizona tax reasons. I have negotiated price also because we have similar sources. They have always been good to deal with and just allowing someone like me on the forum is pretty nice for me.

    For price comparison reasons I put this controller in the cart. With the free shipping and no sales tax the price stayed the same. Hard to argue with that.

    Just two pictures showing the mounting screw holes, the unit was not even attached anywhere, no scratches.
