    Yes this is a good buy because its a reasonable price and includes things like the mounting brackets which can easily set you back £20 a set. At this price if you don't like the supplied regulator you could afford to replace it and still have a good buy. :thumb::thumb:

    Something a bit odd thought:

    Max Power: 80WP

    Open Circuit Voltage (V): 24

    Short Circuit Current (A): 4.45

    Max. Power voltage (V): 20

    Max. Power Current (A): 4

    So that makes them 50w ( maybe a generous 60w ) surely ?

    For the money.. Yes...
    I bought my first panel from these people back in Feb 2010 and its still working fine on the van... Bought another off them a few weeks ago, thats now fitted on my new van and working a treat.. Was giving me 3.9amps a few days ago while in Benidorm. You can pay more and get more amps BUT I think for the outlay they are a good deal...

    Ps... Our friends, Ambilkate, also had a panel from the same place last year. They also been pleased with it...

    thats about right bp only say you get 5amp out of an 80wt panel thats if you are lucky on a good day .you dont divide watts by 12volyt its something like 17.2 with solar and batteries.
