Great product and very easy installation.
Only 2 wires from the panel to the electronic control unit and another 2 wires from the control unit to the battery. It's that easy.
Charges with any signs of light in the sky. At around 8pm, it was still charging at a rate of 50mA which is already half of what a small trickle charger would charge with the Sun pointed at 90 degrees angle directly at its panel.
So in the summer, you could probably get 16 hours of charge a day, at different charging rates according to light intensity of course.
It was also lighter than I expected and it was pretty easy to carry it on the public transports to get to the canal where the boat was.
No more wasting diesel, polluting the air or carbonizing the combustion chamber idling the engine for long periods and not to mention noise pollution bothering the boating neighbours.
The control unit (little box) is the brain of the charging system, keeping its charging at optimum levels including a temperature sensor which also adapts the charge according to ambient temperature variations.
In the winter, with a shorter time of available light in the sky I might just buy another 80W panel to cope with my electrical consumption needs.
That will be a very quick job as I can just use the same control unit which copes with 2 x 80W panels.

Great solor panel thats not too big or heavy, works well even in low light. The only disappointment is that it didn't come with all the connections needed to connect to a battery and there's no holes available to connect a stand but other than that a great buy.

We bought this solar panel following great advice from the seller. They were really helpful in answering all our questions. We use the panel to charge the battery on our site caravan for a building project that is off the grid. It keeps the battery well topped up as well as charging all our other items like laptop, phones, drill etc. We intend to add more panels when the property is habitable and the sellers very obligingly supplied a larger charge controller so that we can add a further panel at a later date. Compared to other panel providers we contacted the service has been brilliant.

Arrived promptly, was as described, and worked as I would expected. Fully charged battery by lunchtime each day. Always keep in mind volt drop, so use 6mm cable a lest for internal wiring and keep runs a short as possible. I carry it inside the caravan and pop it up through the skylight on to the roof, drop cables down to front box where I terminated the internal wiring from the controller. Simple.
