I installed a 'semi flexible' 100W solar panel which I purchased on ebay (direct from China) on the roof of my pop-top. Disappointingly, while the panel tested fine before installation, at some point during/after attaching it to the roof, the output current dropped to a quarter of spec. Clearly some of the internal wiring in the panel has been damaged. Anyway, I am now looking for a new and more reliable laminated solat panel to replace the defective one. Uni-Solar seems like a good option, but having to cut and rewire the 15' long panels seems like a good way to make them less reliable.
In my searching I found these:
The 100W version is a much more reasonable size of 70" x 35" and they appear to be made in Ohio. Anyone have any experience with these? They are also quite cheap for a flexible panel - $2.50/W, all though not nearly as cheap as the bargain basement glass panels available.
