When I first bought this item and I was really excited, but when I opened the package I discovered that the battery was in two separate pieces. It looked as though the plastic that was holding it together had been broken somehow. I returned it for a replacement. When the replacement arrived the product looked new. I immediately began using the panel to charge the battery as instructed and it worked fine. I tested it on many appliances in my house and it worked great. But I noticed something unusual a couple weeks later. After 10+ hours of continuous sun exposure the battery would still not fully charge as the MPPT controller is supposed to indicate this with a green light. All I ever saw was a blinking red light (which indicates it is charging). I am in the process of returning it and this time for a full refund. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
