Removing solar regulator

Hi guys, I am about to purchase a folding 160w solar panel and would like to know the following:

How do you go about removing the regulator from the back of the solar panel so that It can mounted closer to the batteries?

Most of the panels being sold seem to have juta or cmp branded regulators, are these any good or should they be replaced with a better quality unit?

Thanks, tim

I beleive that they are glued on with silicone or sikaflex, could probably get a knife under it and cut the glue.
Havent had any experience with JUTA or CMP. I suppose its what you want out of the unit as in digital read outs etc

Just gooed on with silicone. Start with a Stanley knife and finish with a sharp paint scraper.
If it's the reg. with just idiot lights- replace with a reputable one with a read-out.

Juta and CMP are made by the same "reputable" company in China - Harbin Hopeful Star - www.jutasolar.com - is their website -

It is also possible to purchase 2 X 80 watt Kits with a controller ( MPPT ) that is not attached to the panels ..

refer to my profile / website .

Cheers
