60% of the 1500 reviews are five stars, top rating. Good enough for me.

I have some cheaper 12 and 15 dollar ones bought on ebay that have been in
service for 5 years and still going. Not sure of the brand.

Get you some metal flex conduit, or some braided steel wire loom for that cable, else the squirrels will have a field day with it.

In my experience, everything sold by Moultrie is of poor quality. How long it lasts, or if it even works when you get it is always going to be a guess.

For my feeder and camera, I first went with a cheaper solar panel, probably a Moultrie, that worked good for a couple of months, but they died on me. I was impressed with the results, but realized I needed better quality. Northern Tool sells some decent solar panels. About ten years ago, I bought one very similar to this one and it's been working great every since. I've replaced the battery 3 times since then, but never any problems with the solar cell.

That is a very good price. You also need a mount and a controller for the panel. I get my stuff from Kencove



This one powers the Warn winch and the hog light up above. With the big deep cycle battery it will last years.
