Customer Care

Product Quality VS Novelty

The Adventure Kings has been providing low price, good-quality camping equipment since 2012. Their focus is on giving the customer a useful product at a reasonable price.

They also tend to push the envelope where solar technology is involved. While this is a fun and noble pursuit, it can backfire.

THE GOOD

  • Good quality on tried technology.
  • Nice prices on standard items.
  • Lets folk try solar camping without breaking the bank.

THE BAD

  • New technology not always reliable.
  • Sometimes low cost equals low quality.
  • Failed devices can ruin a good trip.

In defense of The Adventure Kings, there have been occasions in which good-selling products have been discontinued by the company due to poor performance.

In several cases, these products re-appeared in the future with improvements in design and performance.

Customer Reviews of Kings Solar Products

Rigid Panels

When it comes to solar products, customer reviews of standard products have generally been favorable. The line of rigid solar panels, both fixed and folding, has a good reputation for reliability.

The one exception is concerned about the gauge of the cables on the units being a little light. If you have worked with low-cost solar panels, you know this is a common issue.

Since the panels are of lower power the light cables are adequate but feel a little flimsy.

Solar Blankets

One spot where Kings has gotten some poor reviews is with the 250 Watt Blankets. The units have a bad reputation for putting out very little, or no, power.

This is one item Kings has to take off the shelf at a time or two. Ironically, the 120 Watt Blanket has a fairly good reputation for being easy to put out, hook up, and put away.

However, even the 120 Watt units have some poor reviews related to the built-in charge controllers.

Other Kings Solar Components

The Kings line of Regulators, PWM and MPPT Charge Controller, Cable Sets, and AGM batteries all get good reviews. None of these devices are top-of-the-line or the newest technology.

They are, however, good, basic devices that do a good job at a nice price.

PROS

  • Nice Price.
  • A good way to start with solar.
  • A variety of products to choose from.
  • Usually a good product for the price.

CONS

  • The low price sometimes does indicate poor quality.
  • Can leave a bad memory of camping in the dark.
  • The NEAT product may be the one that does not work so neat.

Warranties

Kings has two warranties.

  1. I Changed My Mind

First is the 30 Days I Changed My Mind Warranty.

This warranty allows the customer to return an item if they get it and decide they don’t really want it. As long as it has not been used, it can be returned, no questions asked.

However, a refund is in store credit, not in cash.

2. 1 Year Manufacturer Warranty

The second, more significant warranty, is the 12 monthly, Defect in Design or Manufacturer Warranty. An online form is used to file a warranty application and the process takes place mainly via text and e-mail.

The item will be repaired or replaced if it is found that there is a flaw. Damage from use is not covered.

PROS

  • Can Change Your Mind – for 30 days.
  • 1 Year – Manufacturer Warranty – Repair or Replace.
  • Warranty Application is on-line.

CONS

  • I Changed My Mind Warranty is Store Credit Only.
  • 1 Year Warranty can be a long process.

Overall, the Solar Products from The Adventure Kings appear to be worth a look. The company provides a good variety of solar devices of good quality at a nice price.

As with any unique or unusual device, look at some reviews and steer clear if other customers are having troubles. Good Luck and Have Fun!
