I have been looking for a 50-75W solar panel to supplement battery on a 2 week passage. I hear a lot of people chatting here about Siemens. They look to be a bit smaller and cheaper than the single-cell panels offered by West Marine. Any thoughts from those who have used either of these?

I have used a kyocera 80 watt for about 3yrs now and it provides all the electricity I need except for that hog called refrigerator.Try northern arizona wind and sun for best prices and knowledgable friendly service.

I have 2 kyocera 80 panels and they provide ample power including the reefer hog. I can also recommend Northern Arizona Wind & Sun for best prices and good service.

I have a kyocera KC120 and a KC60. At max output, they provide me with 10 amps of charging power. I would love to add another 120. They are relatively inexpensive for their output. I like them.
