I think it is a very good product. Not having to deal with batteries can only be seen as a good thing and with batteries you have to worry about all sorts of settings so you don't go too low (which inexpensive options don't have) and this would be more efficient than solar to dc converter to battery to use. I only wish that I had bought the one with the terminals instead of just the cigarette plug not because I'm not using it for what I intended, but for the reason I could futureproof my needs. If I had to do it over I'd buy that version and higher wattage (I bought 180w) because some cigarette plugs and cables don't reliably go to higher amperage on Amazon. I also could not get it to work inside through windows unlike the guy who used the usb version. All this means is that they are all 20w minimum. So I use this outdoors and it works well.
