Why Zamp Solar

Why Choose Zamp Solar?

This is why we feel Zamp solar is the only solar power to purchase on the market today!

With the recent rise in solar power popularity, be it for your camping needs or even your home, it is overwhelming how many different companies now produce solar panels. In the camping industry, the most common brands include: Zamp Solar, Samlex Solar, FlexoPower, GoPower Energy and Renogy. Of all these brands, BundutecUSA chooses without a doubt Zamp Solar to cover all our customer and personal needs!

So, why does BundutecUSA choose Zamp Solar? There are many reasons that we have chosen ZAMP solar and think you should do the same.

The First reason is that Zamp specializes in 12V solar output. They have found the best silica to produce the most watts and match that 12V output with the correct controllers to provide the best amperage going to your batteries. So, you are sure to be getting the correct amperage whether your unit is in storage or if you are off grid using lights and your 12V frig is running. Without the correct controller, you can overcharge and burn out your storage batteries. Zamp is dedicated to the RV market and offers many other accessories and equipment for camping trickle chargers, DC to AC power inverters, CPAP power kits & solar generators. While BundutecUSA stocks the panels, we have access to all Zamp’s line and can get you whatever you need to get out there and stayed powered up!

Second, these panels are made in the USA, a home-grown family style business located in Bend, OR they know the value of the USA and keep all their processes made here. This is especially important because they know the value of a local product and support.

Third, Zamp solar also has impeccable customer service support & Warranty. They make themselves available not only to their dealers but also to the end user, YOU!  This means that if you have an issue with any of the Zamp products you can work directly with them for tech support & troubleshooting. If they cannot help you fix the problem over the phone they will let you send it back direct to them where they can test it at their facility. No middle man here having to send it to your dealer and then wait for them to send it in. Zamp solar will test, fix or repair and return the product to you in full working order. If the problem is something they cannot repair, they will work with you on replacing the panel to get you back up and running, most services when returned to Zamp solar have a 1 – 2-week turnaround time make them both efficient and fast.

Fourth, because they strive to produce the best quality product to offer, they quality control and test EVERY item they produce before it is sent to any dealer, this has helped to maintain a less than 1% failure rate in the last 7 years. This makes them a safe and reliable panel for the outdoors as well, they use a 15 year UV rated wire system so you won’t have to worry about wires deteriorating in the elements. Everything Zamp Solar offers, is made to be outdoors!

Another thing that makes Zamp Solar stand out above the rest is that all their products are expandable, you can add additional panels at any time and even use the hardwired permanent mounts in conjunction with the portable solar kits.

Warranty is also another factor that we all take into consideration when purchasing any product, including solar. I did some research before this final blog to see how Zamp solar truly compares to other product warranties. I must say, this was an interesting search to perform, I was looking to compare with the list of brands I mentioned in the beginning: Samlex Solar, FlexoPower, GoPower Energy and Renogy. It was a bit confusing as I started to consider each one. Here is a table to show you the basic warranty I found on each item:

As you can See, I couldn’t find a lot of information online about the other companies. I spent 1 full day digging to see what I could find and it was a bit all over the place. Zamp Solar has a warranty and registration page easy to find on their website as well as a warranty claim form. This was all easy to find and easy to understand.

Samlex solar did not list their warranty on their website, you can register the product you bought online but you cannot find exactly how the warranty is. When I did finally find it in a PDF of a panel manual, it was very hard to understand. GoPower was the same way, it was not on the website, hard to understand when it was finally found and it had some areas that contradicted itself.

Renogy was found on their website, it is understandable but is very lengthy and it seems to have a lot of “red tape” I say this because it specifically states that if you mount it to a mobile device, the warranty become void… isn’t the point of solar power on your camping rig to be mobile???

Flexopower was another one that was hard to find, it is not listed on the website. In fact, the website says it has no warranty at all. I did find a couple of other sites and information on the panels on our world-wide web that states it has a 2-year warranty. 

So, with all the warranty comparison I found, yes Zamp solar doesn’t have the “longest” warranty period but with a failure rate of less than 1 % in the last 7 years and the fact that they will work directly with you to fix the problem. I can contest that they will not leave you high and dry if something should happen years down the road. They understand that everyone is human and will offer you the service of fixing your panel (for a price of material & labor) to get you back on the road without having to fork out huge expenses to replace something that can be easily fixed.

  1. They specialize in 12v solar power
