Set my 200w panel up as a unregulated portable in the end, weighs less than 3kg all up from memory. Only used it a couple of times and now for sale at $250 if any one is interested.

As free camping is something that we have always enjoyed,  l jumped on a couple of huge 250 watt solar panels l stumbled across at a local recycling place recently. They were only asking  $50 each so after ringing a local business about how to test that they even worked, l brought 2 of them. They were obviously from a house roof or similar going from the size of them on the back panel says that they are good for about 37 volts each, which a multi meter agrees with. Dickhead me thought I was onto an absolute bargain until l rang a solar panel installer who informed me that l would need a solar regulator or controller to avoid overcharging my batteries. He told me which one to get and l almost died when I found out it was going to cost another  $250- $300 to get it sorted out.  Next time I will do more research before impulse buying.
