    100W Black Reinforced Narrow Semi-Flexible Solar Panel with a Durable ETFE Coating

    This is a highly durable black semi-flexible solar panel reinforced with anodized aluminum and a strong ETFE surface, made from monocrystalline solar cells. This high-efficiency 100W solar panel 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. The panel can also be used to provide direct power supply for applications not sensitive to changes in input voltage/current (e.g., electric motors or pumps) and for various grid-tie applications.

    Aluminium Reinforcement and Strong ETFE Coating:
    This reinforced semi-flexible solar panel has a unique 7-layer construction, featuring an embedded sheet of anodized aluminum 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 on the market. In addition to the aluminum 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, allowing 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 are required, such as in the Eden Project, Cornwall. You can read more about ETFE and its benefits [here](insert link).

    High-Quality 5-Busbar Solar Cells:
    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. This results in a smaller overall solar panel, which is ideal for applications where space is limited. These solar cells are also the best choice for applications in warmer climates, as they operate well even in high ambient temperatures.

    All-Black Design:
    This solar panel has a unique black backing, making it ideal for discreet and aesthetically pleasing installation on dark-colored roofs, vehicles, or mounting surfaces. Please note that this solar panel is not 'ultra jet-black' - the exact hue may vary marginally from panel to panel, depending on the batch of solar cells.

    Other Benefits:
    - Semi-flexible design makes it ideal for slightly curved roofs and surfaces where bonding is preferable (though the panel can also be fixed by bolts or screws)
    - Unique narrow shape is ideal for applications where space is restricted, or where there are obstructions on the roof (only 51cm wide)
    - The panel is incredibly light (only 3.15kg) which is great for all vehicles
    - High resistance to saltwater environments and possibility to walk on the panel make it perfect for boats and yachts
    - Sealed waterproof design ensures the panel can be used in all weather conditions
    - The panel is fitted with 2 x 0.9m of cable specially designed for solar panels to carry high currents with negligible power loss (4mm cross-section). The cable comes with waterproof MC4 connectors which can be used for easy connectivity to your existing system, for linking several panels together, or for connecting 4mm2 extension cable.

    - This solar panel comes with a detailed instruction manual which explains wiring and operations. You can download the manual in the Documents tab.

    Charging a 12V Battery:
    Please note this panel requires a solar charge controller/regulator to charge a 12V battery; it cannot be connected directly to the battery. All of our solar charge controllers include a detailed instruction manual which explains the installation and wiring.

    Please make a note of the following information:
