    100W 12V REINFORCED NARROW SEMI-FLEXIBLE DUAL BATTERY SOLAR CHARGING KIT

    This high efficient semi-flexible 100W dual battery solar charging kit is perfect for permanent outdoor use to provide free electricity for charging 12V batteries to power various applications, such as in a motorhome, caravan, camper, boat, or for solar lighting systems, off-grid and back up solar power systems.

    Solar kit includes:

    • 100W reinforced narrow semi-flexible solar panel with a durable ETFE coating
    • 10A 12V dual battery solar charge controller for independent charging of 2 batteries or battery banks (can work with a single battery too)
    • A pair of 5m 4.0mm² single core extension cables with MC4 connectors
    • 5m of 4.0mm² dual core battery cable

     

    100W Reinforced narrow semi-flexible solar panel:

    This reinforced semi-flexible solar panel has a unique 7-layer construction, featuring an embedded sheet of anodised aluminium fully encapsulated within the solar panel. This additional reinforcement offers greater strength and resilience, making this one of the most robust semi-flexible solar panels available.

    In addition to the aluminium reinforcement, the surface of this 100W semi-flexible solar panel is made of strong ETFE material which has a longer service life compared to standard semi-flexible solar panels. As a result, these particular semi-flexible solar panels are extremely hard-wearing and less prone to cracking , delamination and corrosion. The lightly textured coating of this panel creates an anti-reflective surface which allows the panel to absorb a far greater amount of light, thereby increasing efficiency. ETFE material has long been used in applications where durability and high-temperature resistance is required, such as in the Eden Project, Cornwall. You can read more about ETFE and its benefits here.

    This panel also features innovative 5 busbar solar cells, which are more efficient than the 2, 3 or 4 busbar solar cells used in most other solar panels, and are able to extract more power from the same surface area.

    The semi-flexible design of this panel makes it ideal for curved roofs and surfaces where bonding is preferable (though bolts or screws can also fix the panel). The panel is also incredibly light (only 3.15kg), making it an ideal option for all vehicle applications. The unique narrow design of this panel also makes it ideal for applications where space is restricted, or where there are obstructions on the roof. This panel is also highly resistant to salt water environments and can walk on the panel, making it the perfect choice for boats and yachts.

    The panel is fitted with 2 x 0.9m of cable with MC4 connectors at the end which simply plug into the 5m extension solar cable supplied with the kit, to join the solar panel and the charge controller.

    10A Dual battery controller:

    The kit includes a 10A 12V/24V dual battery solar charge controller designed to charge and protect two batteries independently, with automatic cut off to prevent over-charging. The controller uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology which increases charge acceptance and prolongs the life of your batteries. PWM technology can also recover some lost battery capacity

    This is a perfect solar controller for a caravan/camper van/boat or another system with two batteries (e.g. engine and leisure battery) or battery banks. You can set the initial charging priority e.g. 80% power to go to the engine battery and 20% to leisure battery. When one of the batteries is fully charged the controller will automatically divert all power to the other battery.

    Can the unit work with only one battery? Yes, absolutely! The controller will automatically determine if only one battery is connected and will pass 100% of charging current to this battery. You can add a second battery later.

    The unit has numerous safety functions, including protection against the reverse current at night (from the battery back to the solar panel), overcharge, short circuit, reverse polarity etc. Other features include various LED indicators, battery type selection (sealed, gel, flooded) and an RJ-45 socket for an optional remote LCD meter with 10m cable.

    A built-in temperature sensor allows the controller to optimise the charging process depending on the ambient temperature. If you plan to position the controller far away from the battery, or if the battery and the controller are exposed to different ambient temperatures, an external remote temperature sensor with 3m cable is recommended for this dual battery solar charge controller. To enable connection to the screw terminals of the controller, the green connector block on the end of the remote temperature sensor cable should be cut off.

    The solar charge controller is compatible with sealed, gel and flooded lead acid batteries.

    Additional items:

    The kit also includes a pair of 5m positive and negative solar extension leads (4mm cross section) and 5m of 4mm dual core battery cable for use between the solar charge controller and your battery, making the total cable length between the solar panel and the battery 1m + 5m + 5m = 11m.
