my panel has been mounted to the roof of my garage for over two years. When it snows, it normally melts off in a day or so. This unit has worked great for me.

The NPower Solar Panel Charger Kit does not have an indicator light saying that the unit is working. To verify this, a volt meter would need to be used to show the amp rating provided by the solar panel.

NPower Expert
This solar charger kit can maintain batteries that are linked in series or parallel even when connected to a power inverter. If two batteries are connected to the panel, the power produced by the solar panel will charge the first battery(the second battery is linked to the first by cables) until completely charged. Once the first battery is charged fully, the second battery will receive the charge from the solar panel. This solar panel produces 7 watts per hour in ideal conditions(placed in direct sunlight, not cloudy). The batteries' charge will drop accordingly if the items powered off the inverter draw more than 7 amps.

The NPower Charger Kit will only maintain and trickle charge your battery. This will not provide power alone to the dc outlet.
