Either use it as as a solar module without the controller.
This is to charge stations;
PV via SAE connectors to the 3m cable. Then 3m cable via XT60/JY60 to the short connector.
Now short connection via the DC connection to the power station.)
Also use as solar kit by using the controller charge batteries and various USB devices;
(Connect PV via SAE to 3m cable, the 3m cable via XT60 to thecontroller.
Now the charger via XT60 connector to the1m cable.
Then the one-meter cable using battery clips to the battery.)
Camping and off-roading;
RV while dry Camping;
Power Acopower coolers;
Charging your car battery;
In emergencies shine a light on your shed;
First you connect the battery, now the load and then the module.
When you disconnect it is panel, and then load followed by the battery.

Some people want a longer cord for the alligator clips.
There was criticism that the fixing eyelets are too flimsy.
The module comes without stands, but it has grommet holes to hang it for better positioning.
