Lightfuze 5 Watt Solar Panel- A Quick Look.




Lightfuze 5 Watt Solar Panel- Quick Look.

Bought this from Amazon, price was reasonable at $19.99, size is small and it seems well constructed.
I've been goofing around with other Solar panels, mainly from Harbor Freight.
This one however, caught my eye on Amazon.com.
It's small form factor and being 3.5 times stronger in overall watts than the last one
I showed- made it a good buy.
The peak voltage is also higher and it's designed to give you a constant level of
volts. It doesn't pulse like the other ones.
This small panel can put out over 20 volts for and extended period of time.
A solar charge controller is really needed for this panel.
Especially when charging batteries.
So far I really like it for the price- $20.00 off Amazon.

Here's some-
