    There are allot of other kits in this price range on E-Bay, I bought a panel rated 50W, and the charge controller shipped for 60 dollars, had to make a small stand, on 8" 2x2 did the job. This was two different orders. Works very good and is much smaller that the HF unit.

    Keep in mind that cheap amorphous cells can degrade to substantially lower output levels by the first year of use (even as much as 50% depending on the initial rating methodology) but then degrade slower and slower with further aging.

    Even so, many people suggest replacing them between 5 and 10 years old making them better for temporary and mobile applications than long term solar collection. This particular set has a 90 day warranty while premium panels, even thin film type, may have up to 20 years.
