Customer Questions & Answers

How long is the cable that runs from solar panel to battery?

Looking at Grape Solar kit for about$400. I need to put my panel about 40 - 50 feet from my deep cycle battery. If the cord is not long enough is there some kind of extension I can order?

35 amp hrs is equivalent to how many hrs in the day on a 100 watt panel

Asked by: Firbobo
100 watts is about 7.5 amps per hour. So it seems you will need 5 solar panels to get 35 amp hours.

Water resistant?

Is the charger controller water resistant? I'd like a setup like this for camping, but the entire setup would be sitting outside all day and possibly out in the rain.
Asked by: Josh
This item is weatherproof.

You will want to add a water proof box on the roof to house the panel disconnect clips. The kit comes with 6 feet of #10 wire to go from the solar panel to the controller. We needed to buy 7 more feet of #4 wire to go to the battery. We could have used lighter wire but didn't want to risk the voltage drop. The controller is easily adjustable for voltage to suit your battery in "bulk charge" when the battery is hungry and in "float charge" when the battery is fully charged. This 100 watt kit is a great way to jump into solar power. The 7 1/2 amps will keep our battery topped off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So...So The kit dodn'the come. No charge controller...no cables. I had to call customer support to get them to send me one, which they did. However I had to go and find my own cables and tie downs. The products I did get were great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good solar panel Easy to assemble. Good instrutions. Capability to add more panels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Part of a larger purchase. Exactly what I was looking for. The description needs to be updated to include what else you will need if you decide to add the additional three panels which I did. It would also be nice if they were available through Home Depot. I had to go to Amazon to get the MC4 connectors to put it all together. Now that it is installed it is performing perfectly. It can be put together at less expense by ordering elsewhere, but I preferred to have a known supplier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up for Off-the-Grid RV Kit arrived on time, included instructions were complete and when I called Grape Solar with related questions they were well answered. Not been in the field yet, but in the driveway it brought two large deep-cycle batteries up to charge real fast. So easy I might add an additional panel and an inverter!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For your consideration... Do not waste your money on kits with Sunforce controllers. They are indeed full featured charge controllers but are considerably less reliable than controllers from other manufacturers including Xantrex, Morningstar, etc. Also, an overall higher quality, higher output system can be built from individual components cheaper.
