This article is all about the low-
Sunforce is one of the many manufacturers to have operations based in China in order to offer cheap solar panels to the end user.
Here at Off The Grid Homes, we highly encourage all American home owners to build
your own solar panel system and by using products like those from Sunforce, it makes
the job even easier and is getting cheaper by the day.
The Sunforce 50033 15 Watt Solar Charging Kit is one of the many solar panel 12v chargers produced by Sunforce and is also the most popular model. The range of 12v chargers from Sunforce are designed to power up your batteries when on the move such as when camping, boating, driving your REV or for your 'off the grid' cabin. When bought from Amazon the Sunforce 50033 charger comes with a 7 amp charge controller, mounting frame and wiring kit giving you everything you need. Some reviewers did find that there was some soldering required to terminate some of the wiring, which is a downside.
The Sunforce 50048 60 Watt Solar Charging Kit is the premier 12v solar charging model giving the most amount of power and capable of charging your 12v battery as well as you laptop, phone, camera,and any other small appliances that you run. One of the helpful solar panel reviews did mention that the PVC piping around the edges does become brittle over time due to sun damage. They did also mention that if you use a paint or protective coating on the PVC this should stop this from occurring.
The Sunforce 60032 30 Amp Solar Charge Controller is the larger of the two solar
chargers from Sunforce. A solar charger is important because it prevents your solar
panels from over charging your batteries and other devices. Over charging can damage
your batteries so a solar charger is quite important. The Sunforce 60032 unit can
handle up to 500 watts of solar power so it's a good choice if you think you might
upgrade or add-
The Sunforce 60031 10 Amp Digital Charge Controller is great for if you just plan to run one or two panels. It's quite a bit cheaper than the 30 amp model and had received great reviews.
