Re: New to Skoolies and future conversion.

Watch out for those rolls batteries, they had lots of problems with dealers selling out of date batteries so check the build date on them and specific gravity before you load them.

Good ,luck

Did some checking and from what I found you're right, reviews from 2011 show crappy customer service as well, that's a big one for me, thanks for the tip, maybe doing Trojan L16's after all.

The unisolar peel and stick panels look very interesting to me.

Take a look at Crown L-16 that's what I use at home. Been off grid forever and a day. The new Trojans are also good.

Have Fun
