    Yes PROVIDED the regulater has the spare capacity to handle the extra amps ie a 16 amp reg will take 4 x 4amp panels or 2 x 8 amp panels or any combination etc etc up to its max of 16 amps
    you need to find out what your regulater can handle and what the total will be when you have fitted the new panel:thumb:

    Hi Paul if its like my winnie, its a miserly 10watt panel, so you can't use the wiring or the regulator cause their not big enough. Here's a picture of mine.
