They arrived!!! These are the ones I paid low market price for at $114 each with free shipping direct from China. The box was plastered with stickers in Asian caricatures so I don't know all the countries they've been to but North Korea is one of them.

And... Ruban and Martha, there were not any extra charges.

No damage either. They were sandwiched two to a box with some thin foam between, and the two boxes then taped together.

I have attached a couple of pictures. There is a thin, removable temporary film on the surface keeping them safe from scratches. That is until they joined my household! The dogs are already testing them out.

They are very light weight at about 4 and a half pounds each. These will be very easy to transport.

If my maker is willing, I'll post again once I've plugged them in.

Um... or not. I saw "Korean Air" on the sticker and assumed it sounded like a state owned agency, hence North of the Koreas. Google lets me know its just an airliner like any other so I have no idea where these panels have been. Probably not through the dear leader's stronghold I imagine.

But... I do know where they are now, they are in my camper. lol. I am getting the wiring sorted so I can plug them in and see how they work in the sunshine.

Buggeee, if you want an inexpensive ready-made rack for your panels if you are using them externally and not on the roof may I suggest:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I take my 2 panels and attach them to either side of the rack using spring clamps. I then stake bungee cords over the cross bars at the bottom of the legs so the rack is secured to the ground. It works great and you can change the angle the panels are at.

My rig:

This is not encouraging. The $31 dollar ad was removed two days after I ordered. I got this message from ebay:

The listing you're interested in is no longer available

I stake bungee cords over the bottom of the U formed by the frame that sits on the ground. The only time I had it tip over was in a 25 to 30 MPH gust before I had a chance to secure it with the bungee cords.

I got that too!!! LMAO. But of course.

Hey, just be glad you didn't also order the 11 dollar 50 watt flexible panel as well... I got the notice on that one too... Oh my goodness I'm such an idiot. (picture Chris Farley smacking his forehead)

I'm keeping track of the days so my eBay protection and PayPal protection requests are timely. We'll see how those work. Lol. What was I thinking on that? Like Mama said...

Dave, I've received this same message from Ebay. Seem to remember it was also on some great deal on solar that a member posted about. I did get a refund to my Paypal account without having to open a case. Good luck to you.

So now the EXACT same ad as originally posted is priced at $89.99 with free shipping.

Hmmm. Makes me wonder.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Flexible-So...8AAOSwehZZ7xKU

The only other thing this seller says is exhaust tips. Weird.

Another one for 200W (2x100) with controller for $180.00 with free shipping from the same guy.

The ones I got that actually arrived were also from a fresh seller (June or July) in China. This seller is since August. That is an odd mix of product being offered by this seller. Part of me is wondering if this stuff is falling off the back of a truck, so to speak, in China and that's why the mixed bag?

The ones I did not receive were from sellers that had no other items or history whatsoever. For whatever that's worth.
