Customer Feedback

Most customers were impressed with the solar panel device.

Here are some of the comments made HQST 100 Watt 12-volt Polycrystalline solar:


  • It’s the 3rd set I've purchased. A very well made unit. All 3 are producing more power than the rated output. I'll be purchasing more to expand my system. Great solar panels at a great price!
  • The panel is lighter in weight and produces a steady current under full sun. Frame is well constructed with a good protective lens panel. I’m using it on my camper for 12v battery charge. I would purchase again.
  • This is an excellent product. I'm using 4 of these panels wired for 24 volts & 400 watts. In full sunlight, I've seen my 4 panels reach ~395 watts. They have amazing efficiency in an affordable panel. I've tested each panel and confirmed that the panels perform to their advertised specifications.
  • One panel arrived damaged from shipping. The customer service was fast. They sent me a replacement panel directly after I contacted them. They only required a picture of the damaged panel.

More Positive

  • HQST panels are well constructed and very efficient, I don't think you can beat them for the price.
  • I am very pleased with the panels. I purchased the first panel to keep a trailer battery and a few other things charged. I'm now running my work trailer totally off solar and have three old batteries being charged to help when needed. I have a freezer, microwave, drill press and other tools and lights. I’m very pleased I don’t need to bother parking near a power source or using a generator when I get to a job.
  • I bought this panel to run my old 12V cooler on a desert trip in southern California. I simply plugged it directly into the cooler, which needs 4-5 Amps at 12-14V. It kept our food cold during the day and the cooler coasted through the night. It revved up again as soon as the sun came up.


  • This product is available only as a kit (with its 2 panels, controller and wiring)
  • This product comes with 10 feet of wiring which might be too short for your set up
