  2. Its easy to do really, multiply the panel voltage by amps, this will then
    give you the total wattage being produced, – ie / 12 volts x 3 amps gives
    you – 36 watts

  3. How much does it weigh?

    By Christopher711 on Feb 9, 2014

  4. im 99% about that =]

    By zagzagel420 on Feb 9, 2014

  5. nice

    By DIYPV on Feb 9, 2014

  6. Uh…as far as comparing high voltage from power company vs. these. Believe
    it is wrong: A.C., from power-company (travels longer distance better) D.C.
    not as good. Anyways cool panels though

  7. all solar panels put out 12v DC

    By zagzagel420 on Feb 9, 2014

  8. Watts = Volts x Amps To measure DC Amps, you got to use DC Clamp Meter.

  9. liar. i just bought a 6 volt one at radio shack (miniature)

    By ilikepie1974 on Feb 9, 2014

  10. there is a lot of 25volt solar, 30V, or 18, or12, or 10, the voltage output
    fdiffers with how good quality the solar panels are and how big they are.

    By 17Eclipse71 on Feb 9, 2014

  11. Are these monocrystalline or polycrystalline? I feel it might be
    polycrystalline seeing the cell cut and color.

    By sanbusel on Feb 9, 2014

  12. Liar? As if i was intentionally misleading people? sheesh

    By zagzagel420 on Feb 9, 2014

  13. I just got my 80w Portable Solar Panel Kit.. but still doing the unpacking
    so excited to use it..

    By Glenn Hough on Feb 9, 2014

  14. Your producing less than 6 amps and you are using 75 amp Andersons? Seems a
    little overkill?

    By MyWasteOfTime on Feb 10, 2014

  15. How do you check the wattage output?

    By PTTHOR on Feb 10, 2014

  16. Measure the voltage and current delivered by the panel. Multiply voltage
    times current which gives you power in watts.

  17. how much power does the 12v solar panel produce

    By sugu .s on Feb 10, 2014

  18. Thanks for this. Good information.

    By CheapGeek on Feb 10, 2014

  19. Has anyone tried running a computer on a modified sign wave inverter? What
    were you results?

    By Christopher711 on Feb 10, 2014

  20. anyone ever tell you you can be a audio book writer

    By Mr.freelancescrapper on Feb 10, 2014

  21. I buy my deep cycle batteries from Sams club for the same price $69 6 volt
    T105 tie them in series and they can take a deep discharge. Solartech
    panels best buy I ever got and they work great. they have an ebay store
    too. I think you need a bigger inverter too

    By NovusChaoMundi on Feb 10, 2014

  22. @1moreuser Yes you can. In parallel.

    By GoatHollow on Feb 10, 2014

  23. I have made my own solar panel with the help of following website that is
    working properly.Never go for commercial panels.You can always make
    yourself as i did.More info here ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM

  24. @theonethatgoofs How much did it drop your bill? From $200 to $100? How
    long would it take for the saving to pay for your 3 kits? I understand it
    would only be a guestimation.

    By Jeffrey Parker on Feb 10, 2014

  25. How much did you pay per battery?

    By digdugdiggy on Feb 10, 2014

  26. @GoatHollow not with the charger that comes with it. But you can connect
    multiple controllers to one battery or bank of batteries.

  27. @duke3Dtx I wired an outlet in every room ;)

  28. Take a look at the system I’ve put together. I started out with the same
    Hrbr Frght system, and have upgraded, little by little. You’ll find that
    these panels actually put out about 50% of the rated watts. So out of the
    45watts, you get about 22watts. This system is a great set up to learn and
    get you started in making your own power. My goal is to simply run my kid’s
    playroom/ home office of the system, hence I have upgraded the panels,
    charge controller, battery bank and inverter. Hi from FL

    By Amanda Rodriguez on Feb 10, 2014

  29. @GoatHollow Yes this could work if the panels don’t get more then 4 amps
    which is what the fuse is 4amps. Most everyone running these panels now
    that the charge controller is junk for the most part and only use this for
    power distribution at best taking advantage of the usb lights and other
    voltages. We most use other controllers like sunforce 30 amp controller or
    something equal to. I suggest only MPPT.

  30. As you will note… This is now 4 years old…. So I guess it’s not a test
    anymore, btw, I can sit on that puny shelf.

    By GoatHollow on Feb 10, 2014

  31. kewlness sir. have fun and be safe.

    By evcrawfish on Feb 10, 2014

  32. @theonethatgoofs Can you use 3 Harbor freight sets on 1 HF charge
    controller?

    By GoatHollow on Feb 10, 2014

  33. Watch “Alone in the Wilderness” and you might see the bigger picture…

  34. lol very andy rooneyesk,i enjoyed it thnx

    By frank smith on Feb 10, 2014

  35. Also on our list of To-Do things… also the wind thing… more projects
    than time or money here. lol I’m really enjoying your series. Pardon me if
    I skip the Podunk news. I too live in a Podunk area and the drama here is
    more than I want to know about. lol. Getting a crash course for here as it
    is and don’t want to get it confused with yours. :) The way my brain works
    lately… it could happen. lol

    By VivianRinSC on Feb 10, 2014

  36. unfortunately a 45 watt system won’t keep up with a single 60 light bulb
    the batteries will run down and the cells won’t keep up, I’v worked in
    solar power and can tell u that ur roof doesn’t have enough space to hold
    half the cells u would need to run a single major appliance, but they can
    run a few led powered lights and maybe one r two attic fans, or the
    thermostat to a gas powered heater

  37. For the hearing impaired, it helps when someone doesn’t jabber and prate
    like a monkey on energy drinks.

  38. WOW, weirdo..

  39. Our Small Wind Turbine kits have both wind and solar as a hybrid energy
    kit. Solar never charges at night or on cloudy days. Wind power kits are a
    great way to reduce or eliminate your home energy bill. Most people are
    going grid-tied and making the utility buy back the unused energy made from
    their windmills. Home wind power kits can be installed on a roof or in the
    yard of your home very easily. Small wind turbines are rapidly spreading
    across America combined with solar.

  40. They are cheap and people do buy them.

  41. You may want to talk to locals and see what alternatives you have.

    By Amanda Rodriguez on Feb 10, 2014

  42. Make sure you install the panels with the junction boxes at the top or peak
    as opposed to the bottom. I found the chink in the armor with these things.
    they dont caulk the edges of the glass inside the extruded aluminum frame
    and your wires will corrode off if water stands on them down there at the
    bottom edge. I have one in the barn that failed and found this after an
    ‘autopsy’, so to speak. I managed to save the other ones in time and still
    have them running. Just be aware of this.
