Solar panel - 40 watts for $35.00

These panels seem like a good choice for portable systems or roof top systems where large spaces are not available. I have not bought from these folks. They seem reputable, but you are on you own. I like the size and price. Shipping charge seems high, I would phone and try to negotiate. Its a low entry cost for folks who want to fiddle with catching photons.

Cells: with Q-Cells
Model Name: PV-SC040J12-M
Number of Cells: 36 cells in a series (4 x 9)

Maximum Power Current (Imp): 2.22A

Looks like they have a good price on a suitcase also, but they have a "C" at BBB.ORG, based I guess on one (very long) complaint:

Appears you will need a controller. It would drive a daytime LED sign. Most of us (?) are going to want larger wattage. There are some larger panels at bottom of ad.

You most often get only what you pay and sometimes not!
What type (there are two) mono is best.

Renogy panels

I follow a couple of full-time RVers on YouTube that use Renogy portable solar panels. I also have a friend who has one of these suitcase setups similar to the one in this link: https://www.renogy.com/renogy-100-wa...olar-suitcase/

This one comes with a controller; don't know if the quality is the best, but a bit of research would probably be in order.

I bought one of Renogy's 14-watt foldable solar suitcases to recharge my cell phone, my iPod Shuffle, and my Kindle when I go camping. Turns out I use it more when I'm at home. The quality is excellent, and I've had no problems with it after almost 2 years.

Bottom line, I've heard nothing but good things about Renogy products, I've had good luck with them myself, and their customer service is excellent.
