Solar charging kits

I want to get a solar setup to keep my batteries topped up - mostly to make sure the bilge pump works. Anyone used these kits? Watt Mobile Flexible Standard Solar Kit - Marine Outfitters - Ontario Canada
I was thinking of the 50w panel. Is this something suitable for a two battery setup? Would the charge controller automatically keep both batteries topped up, or would I need to add in a charge combiner such as the Blue Seas ACR unit?

Flexible panels do not have a great rep among cruisers as far as longevity is concerned.

Especially if moved and flexed on a regular basis.

Kyocera is the favoured brand. Not sure if they go small.
