Not a particularly good deal in my view. The controller seems to be inefficient, old technology and the whole "kit" is quite expensive for what it is.

Look here for advice on panels and controllers: https://www.motorhomefacts.com/ftopict-139267-.html

Edit: Sorry, the above gives info. on controllers. Her is a link to the panels I bought on the advice of Techno on here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/100W-Solar...E:L:OC:GB:3160

I am highly impressed with the output from my system. It is 3 x 100w panels and the controller mentioned in the other thread.

I would say if you have the room you can fit 2 x 80w panels cheaper.
Sub £200...
You dont need a 2 battery charger as if you do have two they will be connected together anyway..

I see you are in Brum, I have bought a few times from a dealer in Bromsgrove. They are on ebay but you can also visit and collect...
