Obviously, regardless of the controller, I would rarely expect a solar setup to produce its maximum rated capacity and never above its capacity. There will always be something that's not "optimum". MPPT is just 10%-35% more efficient than PWM in distributing the power received from the panel.

I have a Morningstar Sunkeeper 6amp on the junction box of 80 watt panel. I hope Washington Crossing, PA doesn't mean fresh from Kowloon!
