Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panel=Super/Controller=failed We've used the 165Watt panel twice now on our RV trailer. The panel works like a champ and I've already ordered a second one for permanent installation on our trailer. The Charge Controller failed on its second use so we had to purchase a 30 AMP charge controller that cost nearly as much as the panel. We found the single Bosch panel produced a 8.4 AMP charge rate last week end while camping so with the two panels we'll get 16 to 18 amp charge rates. Again, the panels are a quality product but the controller they supply is second rate at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solar panel! I purchased this panel as integral part of a system for remote property/trailer. Set up panel and measured it's output in full sun. The voltage is 15-17 volts! With two "HF" batteries and 1000/2000 watt grounded inverter and charge controller(included) i operated a 3" high speed cutter and 3/8" electric drill(alternately). Amazed and pleased with it's performance. Panel comes well packaged and received a week after ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power for summer cabin I purchased 2 of these modules and at first I thought I had made a mistake but upon examination it turned out to be perfect for the job. It will supply power for my summer cabin in the mountains. Produces more power than 6 of the Harbor Freight 45-watt solar kits and it takes up much less room. Great deal and plan on buying at least one more. Wish SG had PURE sine wave inverters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cord too short The panel seems to work ok so far but the cord is too short at 11 feet needs to be longer to run to mounting locations
