    The warrenty after 30 days is with the manufacturer, how do you fancy making a claim to China. Mind I bought mine from ebay 3years ago from a german manufacturer, still ok.

    looks fine to me and its the correct type of crystal.

    i reckon theres a massive factory in china making millions of 'em then other companies buy 'em and put their own name to 'em. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    if you arent already aware, you will need a solar charge controller to go with it.

    and prices are rising too...I paid £175 for a 80w one a month agao and the same vendor is now wanting £199 .......YUp, the manufacturer was on the tele not long ago on a program about the building of some village for some games over there and they were a big sponsor....make around 90% of the worlds panels......

    I bought a panel from this Ebay seller (albeit a smaller one). If I remember correctly same Chinese manufacturer. I have had it on the van for a year now, and so far is working fine.

    yes they are John.

    monocrystaline and polycrystaline panels are fully waterproof.

    amorphous panels arent even showerproof.
