Answer: 
Hi Paul, This folding solar panel is for maintaining and charging 12V batteries. The products you mentioned typically do not use a lot of power. So this solar system would work very well on your sailboat. It comes with a charge controller to help regular the voltage to your batteries. Happy Sailing!

Customer Reviews

18-Watt Folding Solar Panel with 8 Amp Charge Controller is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have this and it works great... in reading the reviews I noticed (imasaywhat) his review and he... I have this and it works great... in reading the reviews I noticed (imasaywhat) his review and he is incorrect about the door stop feature. It doesn't work well as a door stop. Oh and another thing.. when checking voltage output like he did, apparently he didn't put a "LOAD" on his measurement that's why it read a higher voltage then what is stated in the manufactures specs. Even standard ac/dc adapters do the same thing. It's when you put a load on it is when it will drop down to the appropriate output voltage as stated. Otherwise this is a great solar charger for on the go peoples.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Who's in Control? Charge Controller Voltage Output Ratings per the Manufacturer: *Controller Cut-In Voltage = 13.0 VDC *Controller Cut-Out Voltage = 14.2 VDC Charge Controller Measured Voltage Output per Me the Consumer: *Controller Output Voltage = 17.2 VDC Hmmm? Maybe I should only use this "Controller" as a Door Stop?
