Could this run a 1500watt animal water stock tank heater? Thank you for your time!

Asked by: Becca
The heater's consumption and the solar panels power rating would need to be close for this to work. At 30W, this solar panel would struggle to match the 1500W required by the heater.

Will this solar kit support christmas tree lights and if so how do we plug lights in?

Asked by: willy4247
This solar panel is primarily a 12V battery charger. Power can then be drawn from the battery. In order to determine if the panel can restore the lights same consumption, we would need to know how many Watts the lights use.

what inverter watt weis would work best with this set up as a generator?

200 watt inverter I have keeps blowing the fuse,.would like to use as a solar generator
Asked by: spongebob
The fuse on the inverter can be blowing due to reverse polarity, please verify your connection. There is little correlation between the solar kit and the inverters. Choose your inverter based on what you need to run instead.

Customer Reviews

30-Watt Amorphous Folding Solar Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy folding solar package ! This is a great starter kit. It has all the wiring etc. Do not use the included brackets as they are a bad design. Just lean the panels against a wall or 3" x 3' piece of wood (middle top of panels). I have charged 2 deep cycle batteries serveral times so far and it take 3 days to do it for one battery. You do not need direct sunlight to charge but it is better. This is a 30 watt set so it gives you an idea what 200 watts would do. A great introduction and the panels foldup like a brief case and they are VERY sturdy!!! I have a 500 watt inverter to charge phone, computer and batteries. I am now green!!! You can do it too !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 30 watt solar I bought this kit to recharge my boat batteries and it's done a great job. The wiring connections are color coded red and black, easy to hook up and all I needed was a few screws to mount the panels. Simple and reliable, that is what I expected and what these 30 watt panels delivered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great, easy to hook up bought this for camping. i hard wired the leads to my pickup camper and just plug in with the supplied connectors. store it in an inexpensive hard gun case when traveling. keeps my batteries charged so radios, lights and power inverters are always ready. checked it with my voltmeter and it is still charging even on cloudy days just as advertised. you will not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice panel...flimsy stand I used this panel on my last week long camping trip and it kept my battery charged. It works well. My only complaint is the stand which is too flimsy. It kept separating and does not keep the panel fully open.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exellent for batterie maintainance. It does an exellent job at maintaining emergancy back-up batteries for lighting and such.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Virtually no instructions to speak of so you better be electrically inclined or don't purchase this product from anyone. The Sunforce website has no more helpful information, so don't count on them. In the age of super fast internet shipping, this product took a long time to arrive. It might be a pretty good product, but without good information on how to operate and use it, it will probably end up collecting dust.
