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 !!!

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.

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. Fred S. some where in the rocky mountains.

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.

    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.
