Looking to purchase a flexible solar panel this spring, approximately 1.5 amp. Any brand reccommendations?

Same question for a voltage regulator.

We liked the Solbian product we saw at the last boat show.. Local distributor in Vancouver linked below. But.... 1.5 amp??? typo maybe??

Don't think it matters too much about which solar controller, but as in most things I think you get what you pay for.
