"5 Watt solar panel"
Used for battery operated gate charger so is installed 24/7 in the elements, which they can not take. I am on my third--they last about a year. The edges start to deteriorate (it is obvious to the naked eye) and voltage output starts to drop. I've even tried caulking with silicone all the way around the frame to keep out moisture but still doesn't help.

"Great Panels! For florescent bulbs!!"
I have had these panels installed for about six months. I want my home to be more energy efficient so I bout these panels. They power the fluorescent light above my sink. I have no complaints other than having to purchase a separate inverter. I would recommend them to anyone looking to better the environment and save money at the same time.

"Power To The Moto"
I'm going to review my Chicago Electric Power Systems 15 watt solar panel. I got this solar panel at the local Harbor Freight store for around 80 dollars. I needed to keep my batteries topped off for my motorcycles over winter. I liked how the panel is pretty small so I don't need a huge area to mount it. I also like how your not suck with special sockets to connect the panel to your charge controller. Some of the panels I saw require you to buy their brand equipment to use the panel. Unless you want to cut off the tips and void your warranty, you are stuck with their junk. I attached it to a 30 amp charge controller, then to the bike. Over the last year of owning it, I have never had a issue with my batteries being dead, even if I want to start it in winter. The only thing I had with this panel is I wish it came with a charge controller, but no biggie. If you need to keep your bikes ready to ride, I would recommend this panel.
