    After buying one panel for permanent rooftop install on my SUV(Mazda CX9- the 160w was the largest panel that would fit between the sunroof and the rear hatch), I came back two years later for four additional panels to make a pair of ridiculous solar suitcases. The panels themselves have worked flawlessly and at specified output, but Newpowa exceeded expectations with their speed of shipping and customer service. With 800w of panels and 600ah of batteries, I can duplicate the experience of living at home(i.e.: home theatre, fridge, internet, air conditioning, small appliances, etc.) anywhere I have reliable sunlight. Or I could just stay home..........but hey, I needed a project and Newpowa was great. I'll happily buy from them again.

    This is my 3rd panel and I love these things. They are easy to install and are very durable. I had 1 panel on for over 2 years with excellent results, then I added a second panel about 6 months ago. Now a 3rd panel yesterday. I have them on the roof of my travel trailer.

    I wanted a solar panel that would fit perfectly in my shed window so I could charge my 12 volt battery I use for DIY LED shed lights. This panel worked perfectly for my project. Puts out advertised power and is well built. Good price for the size.

    I bought my second solar panel from Newpowa and it works great!! The new version of the 175 watts Hight Efficiency Monocrystalline panel provides much higher output even during cloudy winter days, the glass and frame are very sturdy and durable. Newpowa carry everything I need for my projects for a very affordable price.

    Nice panel, lots of power. It needs holes in the short mounting rails so that you have more mounting options. It only has holes on the longer side. If you want to use brackets to angle it, and you want to mount them on the short side, you'll need to drill some holes. But it was easy for me to drill some new ones. Good m4 connectors.

    Needed a second soler panel on the RV I live in for extra fan power. This does more than I was hoping for! Easy to hook up to an addition soler panel.

    Purchased four panels in 2017 and installed them with my trailer, only 175W was available at that time. These units generated more than 600W of power in Southern states, while traveling to the North/Canada, still output 500W in sunny days. That’s impressive!Bought these 160W for my NEW 40ft, panels are wider while sturdy. I’ve been quite pleased with this new size from Newpowa. Would definitely buy again to upgrade my whole system to 1440W!
