Harbor Freight 45 Watt Solar Panel Kit

Well I found an affordable Harbor Freight 45 Watt Solar panel kit on Craigslist and purchased it. I tested it and read more about them before I decided to keep them and build a larger system using the panels and controller. Here is what my setup looked like.

Harbor Freight Solar Charge Controller with Inverter & battery

I used this system to test out how the controller works and the how the panels make power. I ended up selling this system so that I could get larger panels that produced more power. I also read that these panels really lose power after a few years and I thought it was best to get what I could for them now while they were still new.
