Reviews
Competition Solar 7W Solar Panel is rated 4.6949 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well I bought this to keep on my boat to keep the battery up. Since I park my boat in an area that's shaded most of the day, I was concerned that it wouldn't get enough light to keep the batteries charged. Before I hooked it up, I set it on the boat and checked it with a meter. I was pleased to see I was getting just over 20 volts! This will work fine for my purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two Big Uses My son's Ford GT alarm system would run the battery down in about three to four days so it would not start. Required a lot of disconnecting and recharging plus button on alarm trick. With panel installed for three years..never fails to start even after setting for a month. Panel on package shelf, gets sun most of the day. Second use, keeps my 12V 7 AH battery topped off thru my home brew charge circuit. Battery on ham radio and its always ready to go, ICOM 703. Have bought 4 panels total for other uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun Power.! Free All Day.! I'm using solar panels at the races on my race cars to keep the battery fully charged. It's so much easier than dragging around generators and ordinary battery chargers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bummer I received this and gave it a try - it didn't work. DOA. On the bright side I called customer service and they were very helpful. Will be sending a replacement right out. I'm hoping my first experience isn't repeated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice 7 watt panel at good price Appears to be very well made panel with mounting hardware. 7Watt should be good output to trickle charge my camper battery when its not in use. Very good price for a 7 watt panel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The price was right, but I didn't buy 4 of them at different times over the last two years. I now own 4 of these things. I have had one on my motor home for two years now and It keeps the battery as fresh as the day I put in her. I use two more with just afternoon sun to keep two deep cycle batteries hot all year round. I lace the battery on the inverter and run a large freezer. The fourth one I have on my battery in my cabin in Mo. I use it to run my water pump. They are very nice and I would refer them to anyone.
