This solar panel is on sale again at Home depot, previous front page deal. Last sale I purchased two, have yet to use them yet but as I understand it $1 per watt of solar panel isn't a bad price.

Price good through 6/21/2017 or I'm sure "while supplies last"

Maybe you are having a bad day, I don't know, but syco123 was trying to be helpful in this thread, and was answering the guys question if you read his post, the guy wanted to know if it would work through glass. And syco123 being a gentleman and a helpful member simply answered his question without any sarcasm at all.

Don't mean to get in the middle of anything, but syco123 deserves our respect, not sarcasm, in my opinion.

most people would hook this up to a charge controller, which would then charge some lead batteries. From there you could hook the batteries up to whatever you needed. If you just wanted to use the power when there was sun you wouldn't need the battery, but would still need the controller unless what you were using didn't care about the input voltage. An example of the latter would be something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/Combo-Spec...B00466PKE0

that can take 11V-18V as input to charge batteries.

This seems like a really good price to me. But I have to wonder if Home Depot is selling them for this price if maybe they are even cheaper some where else.

Im seeing prices from 130 on Amazon and higher other places. Is there a good resource on how to use these or link them up?

Let's say I put this on my roof to power all the outside lights and maybe the landscape lighting and sprinkler. Will this be able to handle that.

yes, but it would require a battery and controller. You would probably want a timer as well to shut the lights off after some time (like 11:00PM) to conserve battery longevity. Also, all of the lights and sprinklers should be 12V systems.

I am looking for something to trickle charge a car battery of 92 AH 900 CCA. Is this possible with this or these kinds of solar devices in general? If so what are the watts and volts I should be looking for in a panel and if I need anything else like a controller can someone recommend one that would be appropriate? Also do they work as well inside back window of car or need to be outside?

Not a "great" deal. It is polycrystal panel. But not bad. Only 100 watt. So could charge a battery.

I own this one. $104 with Prime. (I paid $110 in 10/16)
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

I leave it on my dashboard when hunting/camping to charge a deep cycle battery, which in turn charges my devices at night. Much more pleasant than having a generator running.

Any slickdeals on a moderately powerful deep cycle battery?

Yes it's possible, but this thing is way overkill for that. Search Amazon for "solar trickle charger" you'll find lot of options around $30. You don't need a separate charge controller for a trickle charger. And also, yes they will charge through your window so they can stay inside.

If you use the cigarette lighter, make sure it's the type that has power even when the key is removed. The panel needs to connect directly to the battery, or through wires that are connected to it, even after the key is removed from the ignition.

Your best bet with those is brick and mortar stores. Lead batteries are so heavy to ship that you'll do better at a place that buys them by the truckload. Walmart usually has decent deals, but sometimes you can snag a bargain at a boat or RV store.
