    I would rather invest in something long lasting rather than spend on something i know in a day or two will just fail. solar panels Philippines is a huge investment, but if it is of a good quality with warranty and after sales service, the investment is worth it.

    Ace don't even sell this in the U.S.. wish they did.

    my next plan is to buy more panels and battery so i can use power inverter and run some appliances! :p

    Great instructable, i have been doin a lot of research on solar and have begun my collection of panels, if you live in Canada anywhere near Toronto (save delivery charges) SAW Technologies is the place to get your panels, I got a 245W Panel with charge controller and wiring for less than you would normally pay for just a 70W panel, check them out send them an email for an entire price list and lets get off the grid!!
