New lightweight portable fold-up solar panels
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:
A tough top layer
5 year warranty
Lightweight - only 5kg
- Easy to carry
- Easy to use
- Easy to store
Made with 36 solar cells in three sections of 12 solar cells each fold into a compact carry bag with handle.
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.
A 5 m extension cable lets you be in the shade while the solar panels work for you out in the sun and alligator clips allow easy battery connection.
All cables have lightweight, compact, Anderson connectors
