-With Monocrystalline technology, you will be getting the maximum effeciency from solar energy.
-Due to its design, monocrystalline solar panels take up less space and provide more productivity compared to polycrystalline.
-Due to the manufacturing process of monocrystalline, this product is ensure to last longer than polycrystalline solar panels.
-Installation is made simple with this products ready-to-install production.

It is keeping my automatic gate opener battery charged just fine. The frame is sturdy and although it did not come with a mounting pole, it was easy to attach to a bracket. Put in operation about a month ago, so I can't comment about the longevity of the panel. It has survived heavy rainstorms and serious wind. It is way less expensive than the 5W Mighty Mule panel.
Working well to keep stored vehicles charged. Use with a charge controller.
Awesome that I can run my 12vdc fan straight from this solar panel and it has enough power to actually get to the high setting speed.
Solid product, exactly as advertised. Tested in direct sunlight perpendicular to the sun and the panel provided .57 which was exactly what it was rated at. Note that the panel DOES NOT come with any blocking or bypass diodes so if you are planning to use it in a string of panels or without a charge controller you will need to install one.
I connected the panel directly to a 12V 7AH AGM battery without a charge controller and the battery started charging. In full sunlight (and with a mostly charged battery) I got about 6-1/2 Watts(12.4Volts @ 517mA) out of the panel. With an MPPT charge controller and a load that will accept the power this panel should make close to the rated Wattage.
There is no reverse current diode on the panel. If you are using a charge controller you will likely not need one. If you are hooking it up direct like I am you should add a diode to prevent the battery from discharging through the panel. I easily spliced a diode in line inside the panels junction box.
Nice little panel. It performed as advertised, and is not too bulky. I purchased it to keep my deep cycle batteries topped off. I also found that it worked on one of those 36 Watt Walmart battery operated fans. I couldn't believe it. I connected the red wire from the little junction box to the pos (+) of where the batteries would normally go, and then the neg (-) to the "coil" end in the fan. Suddenly, it jumped to life! As long as the sun was hitting the little panel I was getting free blowing air. The Koreans have made a good little panel here.
I'm not an electrician, just an old Special Forces Army Colonel and retired Airline Pilot. I have made another solar array that has about seven 140 Watt panels that I wired in parallel, and it gives me over 700 watts, it is more than enough to run a tiny window unit air conditioner, along with two 100 watt fans, a large TV, my laptop and a large solar deep freezer. That system is also 12 volts DC.
I would suggest to all reading this to learn as much as you can about solar and other alternative power sources out there, it addition to stocking up on canned foods and lots of water over the next few years. I think we are in for a SHTF scenario very soon, Even grabbing one extra canned item when you go shopping can help you build a supply for you and your family.
