You might try using the search function at the upper right there tons of articles on that subject. You will get all sorts of opinions here. Asking recommendation on solar power is just short of asking about recommendations for a tow vehicle. LOL

Your question appears to indicate you are looking for an off the shelf item to use solar to charge batteries. Before you purchase anything, you should determine what capacity you need based on usage. There is a day and night difference between a battery maintainer during storage and an actual charger to use while boondocking. Once you determine the capacity you need then you should start looking for components. If you are looking for something to maintain batteries during storage, I suggest starting with a 100 W panel and a 300W controller. the small 10-20W battery charger modules are worthless. What ever you end up deciding on I recommend getting a controller capable of 100-200% more than you estimate. This prevents purchasing a new controller if you decide to add panels at a later date.
