Has anyone tried the ICPSOLAR Solar Panels? I am looking at purchasing the 18W BatterySAVER SE model. Do these panels work? The pamphlet suggests it gives you enough of a charge to run small appliances. How well does it work? Thanks.

Well I think they're overstating things a bit. I've got the 15 watt model, bought a Can Tire, even in full sunlight, it puts out .85Amp or 850 mW. It keeps the trailer battery charged, but don't expect any miracles.

Hi I bought the 18"x30" unit not sure on any specks and size is just a rough idea it's not handy to get the true size.Now as to the working of the thing I think it's great I was running the Gen.every day to recharge the batt.and now every three days if it's sunny.I also have 2 batt.and change out every 2-3 days.keeping a charged one on stand by.I have used the system for 3 years..Works for us and I do use care not to over drain or waist the power I have We can stay out for 2-3 months no problem just bring water and food and haul wast away..John
