Yes, the ring type heavy transformer in these solar controllers/inverters. are very handy and in demand by the makers of DIY inverters . Look up "thebackshed" forum under the topic of "electronics" to find the posts associated with building and using the :Toridial (can't spell) type transformers , and Yes, there are guys that want to buy them .( I'm around the Gold Coast ,if thats handy to you ,if you are selling )

They could be quite handy for making a battery charger too.
