To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wouldn’t let my review deter you from buying this as I’m sure my case was an anomaly and the housing seemed as good quality as any other I’ve seen. Unfortunately one of the gland nuts was missing from mine, which is a bad feeling when you’ve already cut a hole in your roof. So just check you have everything before being an idiot like me.
The sun has cracked the plastic. Obviously not the right material for the application. Now I will have to change it out splicing wires the solar panel wires, something I do not want to do. So, more labor and find one that will, ironically, hold up in the sun.
This device fit my needs when I purchased it and it worked well. But it is now eight months old. It has yellowed and is brittle from UV damage. Now I'll have to cut and splice the lines to my solar connections to replace it. Cheap plastic should not be used on exterior applications.
