Can this kit be expanded to 200 Watts ?

I'm looking at this Renogy 100 W portable solar charging setup.

Renogy 100W 12V Foldable Solar Suitcase - Overstock Shopping - Big Discounts on Solar Lighting

Can this kit be easily expanded one or two more panels to make 150 or 200 Watts ?

Thanks.

Me thinks that would be good question to ask the manufacturer.

The kit you listed cannot be expanded, unless you add a 2nd charge controller. The listed kit already has a built in controller which is limited to 10A. If you add another 100w panel you will exceed the controller capability. Renogy sells the suitcase in two flavors, one with the controller, one w/o. If you plan on expanding later, I would buy the suitcase w/o the controller. Buy the controller separately, either a 20 or 30A controller that will handle more amperage from the added panels.

Also I would not buy from Overstock, their prices are higher than Amazon, eBay, or buying direct from Renogy. EBay pricing is the lowest, but when I bought some panels, I bought them direct from Renogy at their eBay pricing (you have to ask them to match).

Thanks for the replies. I've contacted Renogy and we're working on a couple different options.
