Yep, had one of those, a 30w panel mounted on the deck in front of the sprayhood. Never walked on. Started to delaminate after a year but Lensun said its working so no warranty claim. Complained again at the white marks appearing between the layers around the edges at the 2 year point. Lensun said send us the evidence that it doesn't work
. At the 2.5 yr point threatened to go public with the pictures unless exchanged. They capitulated and sent a replacement which I promptly sold for £50 to off set the original price
This was a single
incident, but Lensun have gone quiet in the UK compared the advertising they used to do 2-3 years ago.
Whilst this drama was being played out the cost of larger 100w plus solar panels
has dropped considerably in the UK as China
floods the market and the US trade
sanctions close that market off. Therefore I going to replace the other 150w fixed panel with a much larger one rather than faff around with smaller flexible panels.
Appreciate this doesn't help the OP, but the only flexible panel that really lasted was from Solara, 10 years after being purchased second hand
They are the ones used on the Atlantic rowing yachts. However, the price
is breath taking and too rich for me.
