This premium solar panel kit is supplied with cable, connections and detailed instructions making it a simple, effective and compact way to charge and maintain 12 volt batteries
This 10 Watt Solar Panel Kit is great for weekend caravan trips and low power projects such as powering electric fences, charging power tools etc. Providing a continuous trickle feed maintaining and extending the life of any 12 volt battery this panel is also fitted with a blocking diode to prevent reverse current drain and is supplied with all the necessary cable (5m) and connectors along with detailed installation instructions.
Not all solar panels are equal. This solar panel has been built with the finest crystalline silicon technology which is more efficient and longer lasting than other solar cell structures. This is particularly true for low light conditions making it the best choice for the cloudier climate.
- High efficiency crystalline cell for “all weather” charging extending battery life by up to 20%
- Perfect for battery maintenance, off grid lighting projects and use in caravans and boats over a weekend period
- Water resistant, robust construction for outdoor use.
- In built diode protects against battery discharge
Dimensions: H397 x W280 x D25mm
Typical Watts per day: 60
Charge Controller: Not Required
This Solar panel comes with a 10 year module guarantee and a 20 year performance guarantee on the cells.
(cell output performance will be no less than 80% of new performance values at 20 years)
How Solar Works
Solar energy is a tried and tested power source that is already being used around the world for numerous commercial, industrial, government and domestic applications. It is powering water pumps in African villages, weather stations in the Antarctic and satellites in space!
It works by transforming the energy from the sun into a reusable form of electricity, a process known as Photovoltaic (or PV for short). Your Solar panel acts as a collecting tray, helping you catch the sun’s rays. The bigger the panel, the more energy you can collect. The energy collected is stored for your future use in a battery.
Sometimes you collect more energy than you actually need so with larger panels a voltage regulator should be fitted to control the flow of energy and prevent battery damage.
It would be hard to find a more environmentally friendly power supply. Clean and green, solar power is a renewable, sustainable and non-polluting source of energy. It is easy to see the appeal of solar power for domestic use. Low maintenance and long lasting, it is a highly cost-effective and reliable energy supply.
