    Very low profile, I stuck to my pop up truck camper roof using 3 lengthwise strips of 1″ 3m VHB (very high bond) tape using 3M 94 primer/activator and a strip of flashing tape across the leading edge to prevent possible wind lift.Hooked up to a Renogy 30 amp controller (room to add more if needed) and SLA deep cycle battery it works great. When you first connect it and see your battery voltage and the level of free power being generated its pretty cool! I camped off grid for 4 days and it kept my battery topped up so don’t think I need any more. Note that 175 watts is on a perfect sunny day with the sun directly over the panel, with a flat mounted non directional panel and occasional obstructions etc, I still manage at least 100 watts. For each 100 watt panel you need approximately 10 amps of controller/charger. You need the 8 gauge wires with plugs on from Renogy that connect the panel to the controller and a pair of 8 gauge wires to connect the controller to the battery. This is an easy project for your average DIYer.

    I AM VERY HAPPY WITH HOW THIS IS KEEPING MY BATTERIES CHARGED FROM THE MAJOR PARASITIC POWER DRAW I HAVE IN MY CAMPER

    We glued the flexible solar cell onto the top of our tent trailer and just got back from a week of off the grid camping. The 100 watt unit was more than adequate to keep our battery charged. We used an electric water pump, fan, lights and gas heater with a fan, and never saw our voltage drop over the week. This is an excellently constructed solar cell and performed as advertised.

    I purchased two 100 watt Renogy flexible solar panels about four years ago, applied to the top of my sailboat bimini top with velcro. They installed and worked as expected. The panels were recalled subsequently. Renogy made that process very easy and efficient and I received a quick full refund. Awaiting the availability of new Renogy flexible panels, I purchased two panels from another company. The first failed recently after two years of use. I repurchased a nw replacement panel through Renogy a few weeks ago. It looks much more substantial then the other brand and again installed easily and works great. I’m impressed by the quality of the new panels and the quality of the company. Will definitely by from them again.

    I would recommend!I’m very happy with apparent Quality and packaging which I reuse when not in use. My came with 6 grommets for tying down It’s light and easy to move In the sun while keeping my vehicle in the shade. Because I disconnect and reconnect often I wish the positive and negative were marked a little better then a tiny + / – . I added a large red + and red tape to the positive as seen in the picture. Easy fix. My main concern now is how it will hold up over time. I plan on updating this review over time.

    The 100 watt panel works well. I measured 5.9 amps being produced in full sun.Pros:5.9 amps measured current5 year material warranty, 25 year power output warranty. Nobody else even comes close to that.Connectors look solid and well fastened to panel.Cons, which are minor:Has a textured surface, supposedly to catch the light better. May be harder to clean.7 inches longer than Renogy’s prior version of a flexible panel.Has one long and one short connector wire. Long wire should be about 2 inches longer so matchesshort wire length when both wires routed to short wire side.For those of you measuring watts produced, be aware that the specs say 5.29 amps at 18.9 volts (surprising thatI measured 5.9 amps) 5.29 amps × 18.9 volts = 100 watts. But if you have a PWM solar controller, it just chopsoff the volts above 14.4 or whatever your controller max voltage is, and you just lose it. An MPPT controller willconvert some of the extra voltage to amps, but it’s not 100 percent efficient.Edit: After a few months it’s down to 5.3 amps.

    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 anyways! (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.)Renogy has a good reputation and I will say these panels seem well built and substantial. Unfortunately I have had a little glitch with the Goal Zero (which is being replaced) so I had to curtail my tests. I was able to get 140 watts from my two 100 watt panels. I realize that you never get 200 watts from 200 watt panels, so I figured we were doing okay. If I find I do any better when my Goal Zero is replaced, I will add to this review.

    I am very happy with my flexible solar panel.I use it to charge my Webetop 155Wh 42000mAh Portable Generator Power Inverter Battery 100W.I was experimenting to see if it would charge thru the windshield. To my delight, it did! I put it in my windshield when I got to work and it was fully charged by end of day!It’s so lightweight and easy to manage that it is a WIN for me!

    I’ve had 3 flexible solar panels in the past 2 years, and this is by far the best built one. Yes, it cost $40 more, but it is worth it not to have the hassle of ripping another panel off the roof of my trailer. I also bought this with a Renogy Voyager solar controller at a great price, and it is likewise the best yet. I’ve read about people swearing by Renogy, and now I know why.

    After installing two panel sets of another brand that eventually failed, I decided to try these on the roof of my Road Trek Van. So far, so good after two months in the hot sun. Voltage and current is what I would expect to charge/top-off the AGM house battery through a 20 acontroller. These panels appear to be better constructed than the ones they replace. Another plus is that they are close to the width of the old panels and I was able to use mirror holder brackets with rubber spacers to secure the panels with the same mounting holes I had used for the old panels.
