        I tested it myself and got good results.
        I bought this unit while it was special sale. I tested 2 times the 1st time during smoky sky (CA has wildfire), no sun around 4PM and saw current flowed into battery around 120mA at ~14V. The 2nd time when I got good morning sun light around 11AM. This time I tested with no load and with 60 watts light bull. At no load I saw current flowed into battery was 1.15A at ~14V. With load I saw current flow into battery was 3.25A while current flowed to load was ~4.8A. Based on this I can tell solar panel supplied 3.25A X 14V = 45.5 watts at 60 watts load. The battery is 35A hour mighty max. It is hard to say how much more sunlight to get more current. But it was about 50% of 100 watts. Conclusion: All works but the power from the panel is 50% less than spec. I can use this for router and monitor and laptop during power cut off (PG&E). However, I need one more panel to provide more power.

          Excellent quality. Connectors and hardware are top notch. I installed this panel on my detached garage to power 4 recessed LED lights. The controller is easy to understand. 2 USB ports to charge phones, tablets or speakers. The only con is the cable provided is 16 ft long, it needs to be cut in half to be used. So if you are mounting the panel more than 8 foot away buy a second cable.
