I am looking at getting 4 of these and mount on my boat. Would it be ok to wire in parallel with a MPPT 20 Amp controller?
Asked by: Sailor
Your controller would be VERY inadequate for (4) 180W panels... You'll need at best, an 60-80 amp charge controller...If you overload a too small capacity controller, it will fail and then you have nothing...

Can I use this a a power back up? I was considering 2 12v deep cycle batteries, a charge controller and a mobile pvc stand that I can take in and out of my home. Feasible?
Asked by: Gringo
It might be feasible if you only use a minimal amount of battery power. As an example, I'm using this 180-w panel and one more 160-w from the same company for my 23' travel trailer. The two batteries power a gas heater with electric fan (comes on about 2 or 3 times per night), gas refrigerator, water pump, stereo, and lights, all 12v. Those devices use about one quarter total battery capacity in a single day. It usually takes 1/2 to 3/4 of a day (daylight) at 70 - 80 outside temperature to fully charge both batteries. Based on my experience with a total of 340-watts, using just one 180-w panel to charge two 12v batteries will require ideal conditions. If you're thinking of using the same devices I'm using and want to fully charge every day, I would recommend two panels.

Can I charge a 12 volt deep cycle battery with this?
Asked by: Broseph
Not directly, you'll need a charge controller to step down the 24v output of these panels to 12v to charge your batteries.

Would like to get 4 of these and run them for a 12v system on a RV, use lithium and MPPT. Any recommendations on set up?
Asked by: Bill
We have 4 of these wired in 2S2P (2 in series/2 in parallel) and works great on our RV. This config puts out 48V to our Outback charge controller, but any MPPT will work as long as it can handle the amps. Its currently setup with AGM, but I have 15Kw of Cmax lithium batteries that will be installed this fall and I'll just revise the Outback charge settings to accommodate lithium.

180-Watt Monocrystalline PV Solar Panel for Cabins, RV's and Back-Up Power Systems is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I first purchased a Cynergy 180 Watt panel for my trailer and liked the performance, so I decided... I first purchased a Cynergy 180 Watt panel for my trailer and liked the performance, so I decided to purchase another Cynergy Panel. However, they no longer sell a 180 Watt Mono panel. So I found the Grape 180 Watt with nearly the same specs as the Cynergy purchased it from HD. Wow, there is no comparison between the two panels. Performance of the Grape is slightly better but the best part is the frame construction. I drilled both panels for mounting and there was less flex in the Grape frame and corner assembly of the Grape is reinforced with a stainless insert. How do I know this....I broke a #12 stainless self drill in one corner. Twice!! Only small issue is that Grape does not color code their hookup wires and when your building cables and the panel is flat on the roof it's impossible to see the markings on the terminal box. If you don't trust the sex of the connector to tell which is positive you should mark the cable before mounting.

It kept it charged. my power needs are small: a 12 V fridge/freezer and ceiling lights and a fan. It adequately met these needs. It operates fine with the less expensive PWM charger. I installed the system myself. It was easy. My only complaint is the thin aluminum used in the frame. I secured the panel to ezee feet with a padlock. The vibrations from road travel caused the lock to wear through the frame so that the panel fell off and was shattered requiring replacement with the presently purchased panel. I will attach the panel to a separate frame built from angled aluminum of a stronger grade then attach the whole assembly . I believe this will keep the panel secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solar panel for off grid cabin at a very reasonable price. I purchased this solar panel to replace a Harbor Freight set up that I had been using for a few years. This panel is by far much better than the 45W (3) panel set up. The biggest and most time consuming job in installation was having to make the frame for the panel to attach to on the roof. Once that was done, the panel was easy to connect to my existing charge controller. The leads are rather short on this new panel, so expect to buy extensions if you need to. I am very happy with the initial performance as well as the sleek look on the roof. This is an off grid application, and 165 watts vs 45 watts is a great improvement for my needs which are simply lighting and small electronics. I am anxious to experience the long term results with this new panel. NOTE: A major deciding factor in purchasing this panel for me was that it is made in the USA.

I think grape solar panels are some of the best on the market for off-grid applications. The solar panel is very durable very well-made and produces lots of power. Home Depot has the best prices on these grape panels @$199

So far I've seen 140W at about 9.5 amps. Big improvement over my old 100W panel. Construction is excellent and looking forward to this lasting years. Very happy with it. Would highly recommend it.
