Solid Solar Panel, it delivers the power specs it advertises.,
This review is from: ECO-WORTHY 100 Watts 12 Volts Monocrystalline Solar Panel (Misc.)I have bought and installed 16 of these 100W 12V Eco-Worthy panels from Amazon, to add to my original field of 4 100W 12Vpanels made by Ramsond (they were the cheaper panel a few years ago, Renogy & Eco-Worthy seems to have taken their market place recently) Each of these panels produced 5.5A+ and normally over 20V in full Florida sun, as measured on my multi-meter (I've uploaded photos with this review)
I have my 20 panels wired in series, in groups of 4, running to my Outback Flexmax80 MPPT charger via two 10AWG runs, to my bank of Trojan Deep Cycle Batteries. These panels give me the expected VOC of 80+ (48V nominal) and at the sun's peak of the day I get the expected 27 amps of current. (MPPT charge controllers take the extra high voltage and converts it to charging current, if you're not familiar with the technology, check it out - super efficient)
The only issue (really a non-issue for them) that I didn't catch is that the panel is slightly thinner than... Read more

You should get THIS one!,
This review is from: ECO-WORTHY 100 Watts 12 Volts Monocrystalline Solar Panel (Misc.)This is a great panel, it arrived fast and in perfect condition due to good packaging.
It does put out the true 100+ watts, in full sun I was reading around 5.1 Amps at 20 Volts according to my DMM, in full Southern California sun.
I am running it along with 3 other panels of lower wattage and my charge controller reduces the voltage going into my batteries to around 14.2 volts but even then we had a day when the power company was doing some work, so no grid power that day but I was able to run my 32" (LCD) TV and a fan all day. It was running just off the panels, (the total wattage of all my panels is 160 watts) I know this because my controller has an indicator that lights if there is any draw on the batteries. I shopped around quite a bit before deciding on this particular panel and this is the best price I could find for a 100 watt panel. There are cheaper ones out there but they are usually poly-crystalline ( They have that kind of sparkly look to them, if you've... Read more

good product so far,
This review is from: ECO-WORTHY 100 Watts 12 Volts Monocrystalline Solar Panel (Misc.)
Good panel, use it flat on a RV roof. 5 amp continuously when the sun is high in the sky, 2 amp morning or evening. I would get better results if I could angle it toward the sun.
