Some modification required for my use, but overall - Great

In general, I am quite satisfied with these panels. The panels themselves and the mechanical connections between them are quite robust. The charge controller is more than adequate for the application. I deploy these while boondocking in my trailer. The folding package is compact, but surprisingly heavy. Since the glass panels are fragile, I will have to build a case to protect them (I've been using them out of the box they shipped in). On a three day trip they kept two 6v golf cart batteries topped off even though we used power in the trailer quite a bit.
The fold out stands are assembled with pop rivets and less robust. I will probably reinforce them. The battery clamps were on separate (red/black) wires and about 11 ft long. I've replaced these with 25 ft. of zip cord (which represents less tangling and one less wire to trip on) divided in two and equipped with Anderson Power Poles so that I have more flexibility for positioning the panels farther out.
