Good product with sketchy manual
on June 4, 2012
First off, I need to say the product is performing better than expected but it says it does this for the first few days, so far no qualms. Very easy to get pumping out juice and it provides amps even on grey and overcast days.
Here is the issue, the manual shows the top connector as both negative and positive, and there is no + or - on the laminant itself. I believed it to be - on the top at first then took a closer look at the manual and it showed both - and + for the top.
The top is +, atleast on mine they were +.
The length of the laminants is a little hard to work with, if they were the same price for two half size ones with 50-60 watts each, and a connector was included to join them it would be great.
The other thing is the bankrupcy of the company, and question of warranty on the product. It is gaurenteed for 20 years, and that is a real selling point. They are however selling at $200 each a real steal of a buy. I want to get two more, and would if not for the warranty issue, now I'm wondering? But the product is light easy to work with and very hardy. I'm not scared of a rock cracking it.
Birds love them, but they are easy to wash off, or wash off with rain. Love the product, sketchy about the manual, it could be improved but is a great resource, and a + and - sign on the connection points would be great, as it caused some rewiring to be needed. A multimeter can fix this but doing anything with a new product is a little tricky cause you don't want to ruin it. None the less love it, and I hope the product survives and is picked up. They are way better than glass panels imo.
