Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by low output Unit was shipped on time, looks just as advertised, easy to assemble and connect, stand is light but should work. The problem is does not put out near the advertised wattage. As i am writing this it is sitting in full sun in the middle of the day and putting out about 21 watts. Way below the advertised 36 watts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love not having to run our generator These work great. Keeps our two 12 volt RV batteries charged to 2/3 pretty consistently, which means they'll last longer. Could've camped well past 5 days. I like the carrying handles for lifting and for locking the unit to our RV with a chain. We love not running the generator, so no noise for us or our campsite neighbors. Awesome how the panels charge even without bright sunlight! August 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by works ok fold up feature is very handy, Good selection of connectors, easy to set up. Does not put out 36 watts. Maximum i have seen is 1.8 amps which is closer to 25 watts June 19, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by 2A x 12V = 24W Reviewers complain that it doesn't put out 36W. Sure enough, the specs say it does 2 amps at 12volts. That's 24 watts. What gives, Home Depot, Coleman? September 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Good product badly advertised I have bought these panels from HD and they are as good as all Coleman products. However, the true, practical output per panel is 1.2 amps, 18 watts. That means 7 panels max per regulator (the little box in the photo) for a RELIABLE 6 amps (72 watts) output, which is what you get from your car's cigarette lighter plug. Buy this product for what it IS and you will be as happy with it as I am. February 24, 2013
