Great Product and Best Value  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
We have two Powerpanels and they power all the equipment in our shack and mobile installations. The Powerpanels are extremely well made and the price is better than the competition.

Good product, lousy customer service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I ordered the kit version of the PowerPanel 8 and found the LEDs and resistors missing. Oh well, I figured it was an oversight and thought a quick email or two would bring the missing parts pronto. Well, my emails were simply ignored. The kit went together easily enough (although the resulting power pole connectors are a little skewed, they work just fine). I was disappointed not in the product itself but in the level (non-existent!) of customer service.

great product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This power distribution panel uses the ARES/RACES standard Anderson Powerpole connectors, and the new standard mini auto fuses. A nice feature is the over-voltage (surge) protection, which (along with the small overall size) distinguishes this unit from competing products. The kit is easy to build -- they also sell it ready made. Great product!!!
