Power to spare!

Pros: good value (dollars per watt), the sharp solar panels are very good quality
Cons: the solar panel warranty does not cover campers
" I installed these solar panels on my camper.
In the past I could camp for three days without Hydro, (using two camper batteries), before I would have to recharge.
I installed the solar panels and just finished 10 days of camping without Hydro and had power to spare. I could have kept going indefinately. I was impressed because we camped under thick tree cover and did not get direct sunlight. Also, it rained for two full days.
In direct sunlight I was able to get 10 amps of charging current.
In the shade I was able to get 1 amp of charging current (on average, less when it was raining).
I shopped arround before buying this package and could not find a better deal if you consider dollars per Watt. The tester, charge controller and inverter are a bonus. "

Excellent investment

Pros: easy to install and very little upkeep.
" I bought these solar panels last fall and never got to use them untill this spring, they have worked beyond my expectations and makes our RV life much more enjoyable. "
