Ohms law supercedes marketing fluff and folklore. Renogy is not as forthcoming as many of it's competitors. No, all panels are not sold to the same standards as Renogy. Can a car manufacturer claim 30 miles per gallon, based on mileage attained without the car's interior installed, and tires inflated to 100 psi?

That is ALL panels. NONE of them provide full power at 12 volts. If you want to see 50 watts, you need a MPPT controller that is essentially a DC-DC converter. Running my cheaper PWM controller I never get the full 50.

Clearly renogy is providing nominal values for marketing purposes. You can't fit all of the specs in the amazon headline.

    Renogy is not very honest about output. 50 watts at 12 volts is
    fuzzy math for this panel, whose output is really almost 19 volts.
    Output should be stated at the working output voltage. That is
    more like a 30 watt panel when comparing to other brands whose
    quality factor includes truth. :-)

        50 watts - $80. I have had no issues at all with it.
