5.0 out of 5 stars Go Power Solar Kit, June 7, 2012

This review is from: Go Power! Solar Elite Complete Solar and Inverter System with 320 Watts of Solar (Automotive)
I purchased this product to run security lights on our home property and to have some backup for when we loose power. Our power goes out frequently in the winter so I'm sure this system will get some use when the snow starts to fall. I have also used it to run my power saws and drill when doing odd jobs out back around the horse barns. I have tested to see if it would run the fridge and furnace and it had no problem doing that job. We have been using a diesel generator for backup and it does a good job but having to go out in bad weather to get more fuel every three days is something I hope to avoid in the future. My wife and I have downsized sense the kids are gone we use 1/4 the power now and have smaller appliances or a unit like this would not do the job for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars As advertised, June 25, 2012
This review is from: Go Power! Solar Elite Complete Solar and Inverter System with 320 Watts of Solar (Automotive)
This product works as advertised. We have a small cabin "off grid" and wanted power for lighting and small appliances. Since I am not a skilled electrician or handyman, I went looking for a kit that would have everything I needed to get up and running. The solar elite kit fit the bill perfectly. This product is truly a plug and play apparatus. It took about four hours to mount the solar panels, hook up the regulator, inverter remote (this is the best - we can turn the power on/off from the house), inverter and batteries. We opted not to install the transfer switch and battery charger at this time because we don't have a generator yet, but even that will be easy since GO Power has everything wired; so all we'll have to do is plug it in. We had battery power (4 X 6volt golf cart batteries - sold separately) that night and drained them down to 70%. By noon the next day, they were 100% charged. At full sun, the (2) 145 watt panels were putting out 14amps of charge. If you can... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay, October 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Go Power! Solar Elite Complete Solar and Inverter System with 320 Watts of Solar (Automotive)
Mostly, other than the solar panels it's just Chinese garbage. The price is decent but you will almost assuredly experience problems if you expect anything of it at all. "Go Power", has a good, conscientious technician in customer support, (Adam), but he's limited to the overall product.
