  2. I bought a single panel, same brand, from HF. It put out under 5 volts in direct sunlight. I took the back of it off and resoldered connections which fixed it. The connections were pretty bad.
    Seems like everything I buy electronic from HF either doesnt work, or stops working shortly after purchase.

  3. I have no idea how much power, watts and volts. I'm on oxygen and I have a small oxygen concentrator that you can carry that has a charge up battery. It heats up when charging and I have to have power for it. Ok you can take the battery off and run it on a car battery or home power. A full charge is supposed to last 4 hours. I was wondering if you knew how many car batteries it'd take to run in for camping. I'm going to be putting a camper shell on my F-150 and try to get away from the house more. I think I could fit 2 set's of solar panels on the camper. Would 2 set's charge 6 batteries. I think that 6 would work. I think I can make them so I can change the angle and could maybe turn the truck pointing to the sun.
    If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I'm hoping to do some winter camping in the trunk and hopefully my health will let me have one more summer before I have to give it up.

  4. John, now that you have own these for around a year I'm guessing, has the plastic frames started any cracking or showing signs of getting brittle? Here in Okla. the weather can change more than 50 degrees in the same day. I bought this same kit last night

  5. I prefer monocrystalline but for where i am i think ill try these out and see if they fare better. Already built a daisy chainable ammo can generator using lithium ion cells you can get for damn near free compared to the full price. Maybe this will be the powerhouse for it.

  6. Very nice review my 45 watt is still running after 3years now they are still working. They do work in low light but you cannot mix them with other solar panel types. However for the price I got them they are still a good deal. Thanks for sharing your experience with the new set with us

  7. Love your videos!!! I am just a beginner at the solar game but am starting by wanting to use it to power a Harbour Freight submersible trash pump for use as a fountain. I cant see spending $1200-1500 for a fountain system when I am simply trying to move water around my pond and have a pleasing sight. By using the submersible trash pump and some pvc or iron pipes with a $9 brass nozzle I will get the same result with a huge savings as the pump is only say $100 and pvc parts $10 with longer power cable replacement. None the less I want to power it with solar so there are no huge bills. The pump is obviously 110 v and uses 7.6 amps so what size set up will I need? Im guessing the thunderbolt may be a bit of over kill but not sure.
    any suggestions are appreciated.

  8. New subscriber great video but I do have a question do they have four hundred single panel and for what price. Just wondering because I’m definitely buying one if they do

  9. I have two sets of those panels. They run my lighting in my Florida room. I put them on two harbor freight Solar batteries and I used a renogy charge controller so I can run both set on one charger. I love them because the start charging first thing in the am. They are three years old. P.s. they have speedy recovery.

  10. 100 watts of solar with maybe 3 to 4 solar hours a day gives you not even enough to run your laptop. Probably by the time you get done with all the losses in the battery and the converter your daily production of electricity is like 0.2KWh

  11. I'd like to install a tankless water heater at my "off-grid" cabin for maybe an hour's use per day (showers for 2 people).

    The tankless requires 120 volts and pulls 2 amps (240 watts, correct? Through an AC inverter). So, I need to get a new solar power system. I only use Goal Zero 150 Yetis for lights now.

    Question – How do I size that system? How close does the 100 Watt system above come to satisfying that need?

    Thx in advance, js

  12. Thanks for sharing. I have viewed other videos of yours and enjoyed them a lot. As of today, 18-July-18, we are 13 months beyond this video. Questions: Have they modified/improved this 100 Watt kit or is it still the same, components wise? It was listed today for $199.

  13. I'm a subscriber. Planning to buy 2 of these. Going to use mppt controller. Gonna have to remove connectors. Can you tell me how to tell which side of cord is positive and negative. Thanks Charlie

  14. How do I use this to run an aquarium water pump. I want to make a running pump/reservoir to put in my garden for birds and insects and bees. How would I power the pump with this? Thank you. I subscribed to your channel.

  15. I was listening and waiting for some hymns and then offering time . “Let us all turn to page 316 in our hymnals and sing verses 1 and 4. “. Any prayer requests? Just picked my panels up.

  16. John, thanks for the very informative video. I've been wondering whether these 100 watt panels would power my pool pump & also heat the water for use in off season. I live near Surprise, AZ so it doesn't get too cold in the winter anyway. I have a 12,000 gallon in-ground pool. I'd love to get your opinion on how many 100 watt kits it would take to make this work.
