    iBoost Buddy is great – have it by the TV and it saves me exporting energy once the hot water has reached the temp. Only down side is that it does not connect to IoT would be grat if that could be added.

    Very thorough and easy to understand information provided here, especially useful when my installer has failed to provide me with a user manual!

    We have had the solar iBoost for a couple of years, recently we moved to an electric hot water tank giving us mains water pressure to our hot water, our iBoost had lost its way a little and we were struggling to reset it up, a call to Marlec quickly resolved the issue for use, we found them very friendly, helpful and proffesional, all this and we didn’t even buy the iBoost from Marlec. I would highly recommend Marlec.

    Excellent way of monitoring the iBoost+ at work. The traffic light system is simple to understand and the values tell you how much items around the house consume when on, or more importantly it highlights times when free energy from your solar panels is there to be used.
    Two minor gripes. The cable and mains plug is black, a white option would be nice, especially in a kitchen. Also the screen is very basic and black and white, a higher resolution colour screen would be nicer and add to the quality of this unit. Hence 4 stars instead of 5.
    Overall I would recommend buying one of these units to go with your iBoost+.
