Very good info so far, thank you.
I am already leaning towards not buying it now that I see I can get even more wattage in a single panel for about the same money instead of dealing with 3 smaller ones.
Hello, I see Harbor Freight has this kit on sale for $140. Yes, I know it's probably the cheapest cheesiest thing I could probably buy because it's from HF, but it's my first endeavor into solar charging, and of course money is tight, as it is for many of us. It seemed to be a decent wattage for the price but I want to bounce it off you folks.
The "voltage regulator" it comes with doesn't look like it's a "charge controller" or is it? I may have to pick up a better solar charge controller so I guess that would be added to the price too if necessary.
I have 375 AH of battery on board, but am only looking for supplemental charging.
