    dont bother john, after seeing my unit you wont look at another solar panal again:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    in fact there will be heaps of them stacked up by the gate at the weston show as people ditch them to replace them with my unit:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    It won't produce more than 6a (but might go as high as 5.5a with sun directly overhead) but to be on the safe side I'd get a 10a regulator.

    Yep.. go with a 10amp, gives you a bit of safety margin and prices aint that much different.
    I fact you may find more 10amp ones available..
