Ganz Solar Panel Charge Controllers convert solar energy to charge 12V PWM batteries. They work with both Ganz as well as other solar panels. Two models are available: a 4.5A controller for use with one 12V battery, and a 10A Dual Charge Controller for 12/24V charging of two independent battery banks through a single solar panel array.
The Single Charge Controller is fully encapsulated and outdoor rated, making it the smallest and most advanced charge controller on the market. It comes with a 5 year warranty.
The Dual Charge Controller is fully automatic and switches between batteries based on their state of charge. It features overcharging, reverse polarity, and short circuit protection. Compatible with lead-acid, AGM, or gel batteries. Battery priority selection can also be set. 2 year warranty.

I see from the manual that it this unit is for solar charging only, but I intend to put a through plug on my deck that will run to this device and then to my batteries and am wondering if I could plug a light duty battery charger into it every so often for some more rapid charging of my batteries. Can anyone see why this wouldn't work?
No, this is for solar charger panels only.

My outboard motors alternator is connected directly to my battery. Can i connect the 12W solar panel to my battery as well or would i have disconnect one or the other?
You can connect bothered the solar panel and alternator to the battery. Best to have a charge controller or at least a diode on the solar panel circuit. The motor will draw off the battery, and maybe the panel too but the amperage supplied by the panel isn't near enough to crank the engine. Won't hurt the panel, though. I currently have the same setup but with a water pump instead of motor, and used the same rig previously with an inboard diesel instead of an outboard. No prob.
You do not need to un-hook the alternator to use the 12 w solar panel.
Great until it stopped
I installed it with a 6w solar panel on my boat. Installation was easy. I placed it below deck in a cool, dry spot. It worked great for about five months, then quit. It is a sealed unit with no apparent physical damage.
