When I opened my Mecer up (to swap out the fan), I did try and look for a solar input on the pc boards. There were a few connector points as I recall, but none labelled "solar" or anything like that. I'm sure there is one there - I guess there must be if there is a solar icon on the front panel. I'd need a circuit diagram, but I couldn't find such a thing.I blame Geewiz for marketing it as if it's designed specifically for the Mecer inverter, there is nothing special about it that a normal cheap Chinese charge controller cannot do.
But maybe, just maybe there is a connection for it on the inverter PC board? We need a volunteer to rip the inverter apart and check, I was very surprised when people said there is a solar icon on the inverter, could be that the connection is there but was never connected to the exterior of the inverter.
