bushrat is on a distinguished road
Unfortunately you get what ya pay for. Try to find a monocrystaline panel that you can afford. (you can see each cell) They are much more efficient for the area of panel. That colemane kit will take up a lot of realestate for what they put out. Go for as much mono panel you can afford then add in future. Those panels will last a life time as well. For $300 I would think you can get a good selfregualating panel in the 20 watt range or better. Try ebay.
