    Considerations
    If the 5 metre leads are good for you? I would ask the seller to confirm it is 4mm
    They only say it is special solar cable with MC4 connectors which is not saying the same thing.
    The Baird rear label is clearly shown with CE approval

    Yes I use that seller but without the extras. They also send you the wrong items sometimes which you get to keep but it means the order time becomes twice as long :LOL:
    I also use seller Solartronics

    Another consideration is that the current Biard are spec'd as 30 mm thick rather than the more common 35mm
    Something to consider when thinking of brackets
