    I bought this kit so as to teach myself about solar power and off grid power

    Posted by 6 on Jan 20th 2023

    I bought this kit so as to teach myself about solar power and off grid power. It was easy to install and I have linked it to 2 deep charge lead acid batteries. Due to winter in the UK the sun is so low however I did manage around 48 Watts one day but mostly around 10 which is rubbish really although I"m hopeful for the summer by which time I"ll buy an inverter to actually use the power from the sun. Update 23rd Jan cold day but sunny making 128 Watts.

    400w kit review

    Posted by Graham Eadon on Sep 27th 2021

    I bought this kit to fit to the roof of my motorhome. Due to the layout, I had to purchase an additional extension lead, to link the two panels on one side, to the other. The kit was super easy to fit. The brackets are quite small but they do hold the panels firmly to the roof, with the included bolts & additional sikaflex 522. The panels are really good quality, as are all the supplied leads & connectors. I'm running the four panels in parallel & I'm very happy with the power they provide. Even on a cloudy autumn day, they're working away, until half an hour before sunset. The MPPT is a good quality item & looks smart. It provides a clear indication of everything you would ever need to know. I did need a magnifying glass to read the battery mode selector, when setting it up but once I'd programmed my settings, that becomes insignificant. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. The kit is very good quality & represents very good value. I was considering purchasing all the items I needed individually from many manufacturers but the savings were small. Having everything in the kit, all delivered together made life much easier. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone considering purchasing it. I'm sure you'll be as impressed as I am.
