You seem rather knowledgeable on this subject, would it be ok for me to pm you for some more info. I am looking to come up with a recharging solution for a double battery overlanding setup that i am looking to power a small fridge, some LED lights, perhaps even a small pump and heater for water.

Just grab one from Burlington store today. although stock says 30+ but just 2 left on the aisle. For those think it as a open box and plug everything to charge phones via the USB port, you are just like me but wrong.
The controller only pass&control power to a further 12V battery; without a 12V battery, this set won't even turn on!!
So basically you can use the USB when you have the controller+a 12V battery (even without the solar panel), as you actually use the 12V battery to power the USB ports!

I buy it assume I can use it directly to charge via the USB ports; now feel it is useful somewhat (recharging, at a lower speed & with 2 relative big and fragile boards), but not actually that useful if always need to pair with a heavy 12V battery. Because for short weekend camping, a fully charged power station usually good enough; if I really go deep into woods and backcountry camping then the boards are too heavy to carry. If use at home/backyard, it is only 50W and barely able to power anything serious, also require a little further invest on inverter, better controller (eventually), breakage etc.
I plan to keep it as some experiment toy.
