I like the 90 watt panel, but 15lbs seems pretty light for that size. They might need a pretty substantial substructure to be installed on to keep from blowing away.

Are you going to go check them out?

Wow! Small for 90 watts.. That's not even 4 feet tall..
I can see why it's lighter than the older 90 watt panels..




But, what exactly does F.O.B. (and C.I.F) China Manufacture Price: $162 mean??
Who pays which part of the shipping?

I don't plan to contact them just now, since we are having some problems
just keeping the house warm this year. My new heat pump is down
and the oil boiler is acting up again.. I hate winter!!

Those are terms I don't like to see, likely they handle shipping to the nearest port but you pay the rest along with all the other hassels of overseas freight and customs.

If you think sunelec shipping is high overseas is worse.

I do like their prices though, too bad they don't mean much on the wrong side of the world.

The port of Boston is only about 12 miles away, but I think they might want to send
a truck-load at these prices.

It would be nice, if I could just drive down to NY and buy a few 'samples' off their loading dock.
I don't know if these guys are importers or just a sales site..
It would be nice to be able to buy a small quantity of panels at wholesale prices,
and not be soaked with a jumbo shipping tab.

~~
When I see this kind of stuff, it always makes me thing of going EBayer
and becoming a panel vendor, just so I can buy what I want
and make some of my money back via sales..

Did anyone notice those 240 watt panels are 50 volt? Wow!

Found the dealer on Ebay (used his phone number). With higher prices of course.

eBay Store: Search results for Xenon HID Kingdom HID Light Kits Sale bulb ballast vehicle.

With free delivery to NYC??
