    Still not convinced chaps!

    According to this I need a 200w system alone for my waeco and add 30w for phone charging.

    So my below I would need a 300w panel? Cmon!!!


    Yet I've done 10 years in all sorts of conditions for weeks on end running my fridge, lights, charging 2 x iPads kids and iPhone for me without getting below 90% charge on 100ah battery.

    Snow, desert, clouds, overcast, hot as hell weather so?

    Honestly not trying to be a smartarse bro but you are truly a mover and shaker, inspiring!
    I reckon the main variable you are missing is your daily camp alternator drives most nights I’ve seen?

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    I'm actually talking about the battery I used to sit at camp with the family on the old Sunwagon with nothing but that 120w panel old mate. No alternator bro...

    Turn your bloody phone off. You are camping and enjoying the serenity . LMAO

    BTW I have a 140 Watt Solar Panel with a 100 AH Battery running a 60 Litre Fridge/Freezer . The Battery is fully charged each day about 2pm.
    Don't know any of the technical details but it works for me
