I also had to have it replaced in wty, display flaked out, and it had a bad connection on one of the 30A fuses that burned the fuse. I would NOT choose the MidNite KID nor recommend it. I have not heard mention of a single issue of RF noise with the Victron, better features and more control with that.

FWIW...

Never had an issue with the KID's go on the solar forums for more reviews
