    What are they rated at? Must be 200w+ to give you 12a.

    lots of watts

    the very large panel was maeant to be 200w but i recon about 180w as i purchased this one and i think the smaller panel 4ftx2ft is around 80/100w and was on previous van , middle section of roof now gone , tried and tested over last 3 years and would not be without them , i would guess 1k worth of panels, digital charge controlller split charge controller for engine battery and install , will fit inverter when back from cornwall 2.1kw constant unit off old van , i am a electrician so know what i want to run power wise and how to achive it , waiting to see if the 2 x 110ah batteries on van are up to it or if i need to fit my pair of marine batteries from old van :thumb:
