Any experience with Go Power solar panels?

I saw Go Power solar panels on the Defender web site while shopping their warehouse sale. I am trying to find some independent review of them, but my searches on CF yield very frustrating results (all over the place - but perhaps it is a user issue?)

Does anyone know about the products and how they compare to the more common vendors like Kyocera?

Re: Any experience with Go Power solar panels?

About 8 years ago I was working at Defender and bought I believe an 80w panel for my In laws camper. Rigged it with some quick disconnects and they now have it on a 2nd camper. Never really did much testing with it but it was still putting out a few amps on a cloudy day last summer when I visited them camping. Seems to be reasonably well built mind you this one has not lived a hard life as they take it off for the winter etc.
