Steve at 5 watts the flexable panel would never give enough charge to keep up with a fridge or even just lighting but for a trickle charger they pack away nice & easy & do a good job. Far better value would be the twin panels in the fold away cases. Still pack easily but get some usable power & for half the cost per watt.

Hey Steve, say hello to Denny, i'm interested in using solar panels for charging our battery it's a deep cycle, i want to know what watts the solar panel would need to be to do the job, this is only to charge the battery nothing else.
