Beginner DIY Solar Power Kit Preliminary Review
First, I appreciate how quickly I received my order. I ordered on a Friday afternoon and had the kit on the following Thursday. Thank you for getting my order to me in a timely manner. I also appreciate the fact that everything arrived safely and undamaged. I haven't used the solar panels or charge controller as yet to charge the battery. The battery came charged to 13 volts so I used it at Field Day as is with my IC-7300 radio and Alfa EZ Military antenna. I only depleted the battery by 0.1 volts after several hours of use. The solar panels appear to be well made, including the carrying case. I like the carrying handles on the battery but I was disappointed that there wasn't any manual for the battery and the documentation for the charge controller could be improved on IMO. I haven't used the inverter yet but it appears to be reasonably well made. The cabling that is included in the kit is well made. I will try to post an update after I've had a chance to use everything.
Simple yet valuable
Easy to use, applicable to my needs, and handy to set up.
Defective and support simply stopped responding to me
My kit never worked. I was discussing with support over email and they simply stopped responding. My health took a turn for the worse so I didn't press the issue. now a year later and I wasted several hundred dollars on this company :/ Very disappointed.
All around excellent products
We have loved every single item we own from lion. We power our trailer 80% from our solar generator and panels from lion, then have another set up with a single panel and inverter to power the electric dog fence. Customer service was so easy to work with! You won’t regret buying from lion!
The heart of the package, the battery, has a faulty power meter display. Lion is supposedly shipping a replacement. Can"t comment more until then.
