Default Coleman 55 Watt kit on sale

This info may only be useful to Canadians or anyone who can visit a store called Princess Auto. For those that don't know, Princess Auto is the Canadian version of Harbor Freight.

I was there today as they have a sale on the Coleman 20 Watt panels for $56 each. I was looking around and couldn't find them. So I looked up on the shelving where they keep their stock and what do I see? The Coleman 55 Watt solar kit for $103.99! This kit includes

3 18 Watt solar panels
Frame
7 Amp Charge controller
Inverter
3 in 1 wire connector (Connect all 3 panels together)
12-Volt DC plug
alligator battery clamps
LED voltage tester
12-Volt socket

This is an in store product only, and is on sale until September 3 2014. In fact this product is not listed on their web site and is not in any of their flyers.

Amazon.com lists these at $265. If you ever wanted to try getting into solar, now's the time. Honestly I'm probably gonna go back and buy a second one for that price.

I love going to Princess Auto. It's like a treat for me

I saw this info in the Coleman 55 watt Solar 12 volt Power Generator Kit FAQ section:

Quote:
How many panels can I connect to my 7 Amp Solar Charge Controller?
You can connect up to 105 Watts of Solar Power to the 7 Amp Solar Charge Controller. Panels should be connected
in parallel positive to positive, negative to negative.
So it's also expandable.

It looks to be about 42" X 48" which is pretty large for 55 watts, but the price is sure right!

Sorry, I should have noted that it's expandable.

And the wife gave me the OK to go buy a second one
