Date Posted:17 December 2018 

Solar 4 RVs newest ultra-light 160W portable solar panel have arrived.  This fold-up solar panel uses the same high grade efficient monocrystalline solar cells that are used in our eArche flexible solar panel range.  eArche solar panels are used extensively in architecture and are the only lightweight solar panel approved by the Australian Clean Energy Council.

The robust construction of eArche solar panels uses a Patent Pending composite material similar to that used in airplane windows and is 75 percent lighter than conventional photovoltaic panels.  These portable solar panels have:

Made with 36 solar cells in three sections of 12 solar cells each fold into a compact carry bag with handle. 

eArche foldable portable ultra-lightweight solar panel has robust textured surface

The top encapsulation layer is a high-strength fluorine polymer that is corrosion and stain resistant, non-stick self-cleaning, and retains its clarity (and therefore light transmittance) ensuring long service life for solar panels.  It will not discolour or degrade from exposure to environmental pollution, UV light, harsh chemicals or extreme temperature variations. 

The surface texture is extremely tough.


There is a choice of solar charge controller/egulator.  Either a 10A PWM with LCD display or a  Victron 15A MPPT with built-in Bluetooth so you can connect to the Victron app via a smartphone/device so you can set-up, monitor and update the controller.
