In addition to this 190W panel, I also have two 160W panels. These are awesome panels. I have them feeding into a 600W Small Photovoltaic Grid Tie inverter. HIGHLY recommended!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sgtrob Good Panels
Expensive for the size but the only ones that will work with my SunTech 175 watt panels. Added 4 to upsize my grid tie system and they are stronger by 250ma and slightly higher in volts. 3 of the first 4 were delaminating and returned to Home Depot. I can't say enough good about dealing with Home Depot very classy people. However the Grape solar people are nothing to bragg about and did absolutely nothing for me considering the expense and time involved to return/reorder and wait for their product to be replaced...not impressed with them. Well made products but too expensive and the company is poor to deal with. There are great panels at much better prices out there just not in this size.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oldtimer good value
Panels work as advertised, having consistent output and good workmanship. The packaging is not adequate to prevent damage in shipping, as 4 of the 6 boxes had the staples ruptured open on the sides. Three panels have dented and scratched corners but they aren't bad enough to return as the replacements might be damaged more severely.
Purchase would get 5 stars if price were lower and packaging adequate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solarhand Efficient solar panel
I can confirm that you need a solar charge controller that meets the high open circuit output voltage of this solar panel. But in return you get a very efficient solar panel at a great price point, shipped free to your local store. I combined it with the Steca PRS 3030 and 2 deep cycle RV batteries for use on my RV travel trailer. It keeps my batteries charged even for extensive camping away from the grid, with lots of power for lights, furnace motor, and laptops. Also be aware that use on an RV probably negates the warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OffGridDude55 Great way to buy solar products!
Ordered 2 Grape solar panels, 190 watts each. Have had trouble getting solar panels ordered and delivered here, as we live on an unpaved road and shipping is way expensive. I was able to order the pnels and pick them up at the Home Depot for much cheaper. They are installed now and working. I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KESLASER Another great product from Grape Solar,
This panel is outputting more then specs!
It has 3 blocking diodes installed in the junction box

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbeamrye High Voltage Output FYI
This panel outputs around 40 VDC. This means you will have to buy a more expensive solar charger that handles input voltages over the normal 12 to 22 volts. The 30,10 and 7 amp Sunforce solar chargers sold on this site will NOT work with this panel FYI.
See the Home Depot Grape Solar 100 watt panel as it IS a 12- 22 volt output panel.
