I am extremely pleased with the performance of this solar panel. We have one installed in a small cabin style 12-volt system intended only to charge personal electronics at a remote location. Just add a deep cycle battery and a DC to AC 120 power inverter, such as the Cobra CPI 480 400-Watt 12-Volt DC to 120-Volt AC Power Inverter with 5-Volt USB Output. It is great!

One WARNING for those new to such systems like we were. The charge controller that comes with this kit is just fine, but it is only for *MAINTAINING* a 12 volt battery. If that is your purpose, buy *this* kit.

But, if you want to add an inverter so that you can have AC, USB (and we even added a 12 volt car socket which is the most efficient), then buy the same panel *without* the charge controller and wiring kit. What you need is a charge controller like the Kintrex SPC0601 7 Amp 100 Watt 12 Volt Solar Power Charge Controller, and various connectors of course. The Sunforce controller only has connections for the solar panel and the battery. The Kintrex adds a load connector for power output which isolates the charge controller and gives you usable power output to your inverter. If you try to parallel the battery connection to your devices like I naively did, you risk overcharging your battery. (I vented a little hydrogen and oxygen, but did not do it long enough to ruin my battery.)

I will definitely be buying more of these panels for other projects. Once you understand the fairly simple wiring you can easily create a great low power system for a cabin. (Next, we will build a 60 or 90 watt system...)

Hi- I bought this set-up to keep my Motorhome charged when not using it. It is only 15 watts so can barely keep the battery up to charge if I am actually using any lights or other stuff but it will keep up with the draw of the refridgerator and minimal stuff. My only beef is the controller wires could have all been pre-terminated with connectors rather than having me do that. This was bought as a kit so it would have been nice if there was a connector on the input side of the controller that mated witht he connector on teh solar panel and a different style connector on the output that would be compatible with the cigarette-lighter adapter, etc. In other words- all set up to just plug in and go.

Once I soldered and shrinkwrapped the new connectors on I'm pretty happy with it. Not everyone has the ability to properly terminate the wires.

Thanks

I purchased my Sunforce Solar Panel a few month back. Everything worked fine (had it connected to a large battery, and in turn, to a power inverter) up until the battery charge was too low to use. I checked the panel connections and tested with the LED tester adapter that came with it - it didn't light up. I emailed Sunforce support and got a response: check with a voltage meter. I checked it, emailed my results (nothing coming from the panel at all) and since then, have emailed several times asking for help. They have ignored every email since.
I would NOT recommend purchasing from them. If they cannot or WILL NOT support a product with a warranty for me, why would they for you?

I was originally pleased with this purchase until, after about four months of use, the panel simply stopped working. There was no apparent damage and I carefully checked every connection for continuity. When I contacted customer service they replied by asking about the settings on my multimeter. I explained the situation to them but received no further response. I know how difficult it can be to troubleshoot a technical problem over the phone or by email but they didn't even try. It seemed like a good product at first but now it only functions as an overpriced door stop.

I purchased this combo for off grid minimal lighting needs with high hopes. Package arrived dented, but contents appeared OK. Open circuit voltage on solar panel OK at 22v. However, max power output on sunny day was 1.6w (130mA@ 12.3v). This was on a day that my conventional 2.7kW system was producing 1.8kW. My plan is to return and try again, but purchasers should definitely check output.

Very Incorrect Specs. Will not allow the charging of a Yuasa 7A-Hr 12Volt battery when only 0.25 amps are drawn on the battery during full sunshine. This product Does Not provide 1 Amp capability at all as advertised. I placed a 12.5 Ohm resistor across the output of the panel and the maximum current was only 0.344 Amps, not 1 Amp, roughly 4.3 Volts instead of the expected 12 Volts. Do not buy this panel.

This is the second sunforce panel that I have purchased. I mounted one on the roof of my 5th wheel trailer late last summer. While I was happy with it, I decided to add the second panel on a pivoting base to give me more charging power. The two panels keep my batteries (2- 6 volt camper batteries) fully charged for the month that the camper was in the mountains of wyoming. Other panels may be more powerful, but their price is much higher than this unit.

This product has worked out well for me.
As I haven't isolated my truck battery its charging both truck and camper.
The vehicle has been unpluged from my 115V house access all summer.
I will say that it is a slow charge.

Update;

I have a 2nd unit installed in a Vanagon camper.
Works great and keeps all my batteries charged up.
