Solar Sale
« on: December 01, 2019, 05:39:35 PM »
I'm a bit late on this, but if anyone is on here this evening (12/1) and has been interested in solar, Renogy has 20% off site-wide today. I've been very happy with the 100 watt flexible panel I bought from them. Complete solar kits are available too.

I'll second the upvote on the Renogy 100W flex panel-  I like mine too.

I actually bought mine on sale from IIRC Home Depot at a significant discount.

Then I picked up the Renogy Wanderer 30A solar controller on Amazon.

Yes, some of those flexible panel beat the heck out of my big / heavy 80 watt suitcase. Pair that with a nice new Lithium pack and you have a nice "Portable" generator, or so they call them.

How have your flexible panels turned out for you?

I helped a buddy set up two large- 170 watt spec panels, not made by Renogy, that actually put out at best 100 watts. I suspect that it was a labeling/spec scam as I have never seen any other flexible panels of that wattage, mostly 100 watts (surprise, surprise!!!).

But others in the boating world have reported the same thing even with 100 watt panels, so I wondered how yours turned out.
