Well... as the saying goes.. "You get what you pay for".

I bought 4 - 200 watt flexible panels from China. The wattage each put out are.. 70, 60, 48 and 46 watts, for a grand total of 224 watts when wired in series. For a supposed 800 watt array in full sun and no shading, 224 watts is pathetic in my thinking. Maybe I'm missing something but it seems pretty meager to me.

From panel array to controller the wire is #8 awg with 30 amp inline fuse and disconnect switch. From controller to batteries the wire is #6 awg with 50 amp breaker inline.

Any thoughts.. if I got something wrong or just cheap A** panels?
