An update on the Sungold flex panels on my roof for charging the quad bike.
That failing panel, has failed.
I noticed last week sometime when I plugged in the quad bike for charging that it didn't charge. I didn't have time to investigate until today.

Battery voltage 53.2v. Solar voltage 52.0v. So zero charge.

Check the panel

Replaced the failed panel, and we get charge again.

So If I take today as the fail date 1 May 2022 and the install date was 9 April 2021, then we are just over 1 year. That is extremely poor performance.
