Hello , I hope you can help me, is it possible to change a solar panel on some led rope lights as I believe the panel provided is not very good, the panel I have is 2v 150ma and runs Ni-Mh AA x2 batteries. I would be happy to buy a better panel

If I purchased this kit, would I be able to add more panels? I'm thinking of buying a charge controller so that I am able to add more panels. Thanks in advance.

Asked by: Parxe666
Yes this kit would be fine to add more panels too.
