Is Sunsei Still in Business?

I'm looking to buy a small panel and was leaning towards a Sunsei, but the freephone number is no longer in service and the US rep listed in CA also has a number no longer in service. Could not Skype call the factory using the link on their site either.

When I look at the smaller panels Amazon.com has

Currently unavailable.
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.


But if I do a Sunsei or ICP Solar news search I don't get anything, ideas?


Failing that, can anyone recommend a rigid .5W to 1W panel for a 12V system ideally without protection diodes and with a simple mounting so I can fix to a rail, yet be easily detachable. Sunsei had a nice little grip mount, maybe I can use that with someone elses panel?

Yes, I agree that the website is still there. That where I took the Skype contact button, freephone number and US distributor number from, but none work, all disconnected. No stockists have their product in stock and I'm reluctant to buy (even if I could) if the 10 year warranty cannot be supported.


Still keen on a good recommendation on a less than 1A (12-15W) panel with mounting.

Oh well that doesn't sound good, I'd stay away...

I've had this site recommended to me but I've yet to buy anything from them...

They do have a few 1w options to check out though.

Thanks for the link. Are you offering this as an alternate source of smaller panels or since this is also Montreal based and both mention "Coleman" products are Sunsei and Sunforce one and the same? I cannot find anything Sunsei on the Sunforce site so I assume they are not.
