Renogy Flexible Solar Panel 50 Watt 12 Volt Monocrystalline Semi-Flexible Bendable Mono Off-Grid Charger for Marine RV Cabin Van Car Uneven Surfaces
Best Solar Panel For Home is supper product. I purchased two Renogy 100 watt Flexible panels to charge a Goal Zero Yeti 1000 solar generator. We live in Florida and experienced a glancing blow from Hurricane Irma last year that left us without power for a few days. Although my neighbors had gas generators, keeping them filled with gasoline was the big challenge.
I have been running tests with my Renogy panels and Goal Zero generator that I use to power a mini freezer. So far, it appears that we will be able to run the freezer by charging during the day and running the generator at night. We are hoping to be able to make ice for our coolers as well as some for various neighbors who don’t have generators. (Getting ice was the another challenge last year.) Of course the biggest mystery is, if we really get slammed with a direct hit will any of this matter anyway! (I’ll get back to you if that happens, if I can!)
But I really like the Renogy flexible panels for my purpose. I like that they are lightweight, easy to move and haul in and out of the house. I made frames for them out of small PVC pipes so that I can adjust them with the sun’s movement. (By the way, if you purchase Renogy panels and extension cables, which you will need—buy 2 cables for each panel. To solar experts, that’s probably obvious, but to the rest of us, not so much. Fortunately, I read an Amazon review and knew to do this.)
Prior to purchasing, I emailed Renogy with a few questions, and they were very good and generous with their time, info, and patience. (I think their website needs to be a little less slick and more informative—my only complaint for Renogy.)Promised Review by Barbara Loney
