Any name or other brand recomendations for 80/85 watt panels that seem to hold up well to travel. I want to spend the money here for a power generation for my batteries, and possible buy another simalar panel later.
When we looked into solid solar panels what we found was a lot of good panels but not very many companies making stout frames. We ended up going with Carmanah panels because they offered both well made panels and well made frames.
That said solid panels can be damaged relatively easily, especially in the environment we travel in, which is why we recently started to move toward the flexible folding panels.
Our choice here was to go with Powerfilm, due to their high quality and military grade components. These panels pack away into a very small package, they are durable, and they are easily transferred from one application to another. This could be from one vehicle to an other, a trailer to a vehicle, for back up power in a house or cabin, or power when backpacking.
