Competition Solar 7W Solar Panel is rated 4.6842 out of 5 by 57.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the RV When our old RV solar panel broke, went searching for another small one like it and found this one here on SG. Wow price was excellent and used it in Oct 2014 on a three week upland bird hunt and it worked excellent. Keeps the batteries in the trailer charged up and we only had to use the generator to run the microwave. I highly recommend.
