  •  I've got a couple of the units from Costco (7+ / 0-)

    Since I spend most of the summer camping, I use them to keep the laptop charged and running.

    •  We alternate summers between Yellowstone/Grand (3+ / 0-)

      Teton and parks in southern Africa camping in our truck camper in US and our little dome tent in South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, and Botswana.

      Wanted more solar for the truck camper this past summer so looked at those Costco and Home Depot ones, but  really wanted to buy made in USA.  Finally was able to get a flexible mono panel that could be rolled up made by Unisolar.  Bought one off Ebay, but now think the company has gone under.  It is 144 watt and rolls up into about 1.5 by 1.5 foot area.  Works in low light!

      There were numerous   made in USA choices but all were too big to go on top of our slide in Truck Camper.
