This 30W solar charging kit includes:

  • High efficiency 30W polycrystalline solar panel with 5m cable
  • Automatic 5A solar charge controller with many protection functions
  • 2m battery cable with crocodile clips and a fuse
  • User manual with installation instructions

 

30W solar panel:

This kit includes a waterproof high efficiency 30W solar panel which is perfect for permanent outdoor use to provide free power for charging a 12V battery to then power various devices for many applications. It's suitable for motorhomes, caravans, campers, boats, or for solar lighting, off-grid or back up power systems (in a garage, shed, farm etc). It can also be used for maintaining larger battery banks in a fully charged state.

The long-lasting, high-efficiency, polycrystalline cells and the tough, sealed, aluminium frame will give you years and years of consistent, free power. The waterproof design ensures that the panel can be used in all weather conditions.

The panel comes with 5m of thick twin core cable which is attached to the waterproof junction box on the back. Please note that the junction box protrudes approximately 0.5cm beyond the frame, which means that there must be some space left between the frame and flat surface when mounting the panel (note 1.0 - 1.5cm space under the panel is typically recommended for cooling).

5A solar charge controller:

The kit also includes an advanced fully automated 5A solar charge controller (not waterproof) designed to protect your 12V battery whilst charging it, having automatic cut off to prevent over-charging and deep discharge. The controller uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology which increases charge acceptance and prolongs the life of your battery. PWM technology can also recover some lost battery capacity.

The controller can work with sealed, gel and flooded batteries - battery type can be easily set. The unit also has a pair of terminals for connecting your 12V loads if necessary (such as lights etc).

This solar controller stops reverse current at night (from the battery back through the solar panel) so your battery won't lose any charge. It has many other protection functions such as over charge / discharge, over load, short circuit, overheating etc. Other features of this controller include LED indicators, battery type switch and load "on/off" button.

Additional items:

The solar kit also includes 2m battery cable with a fuse and crocodile clips for ease of connection to your battery. A user manual is provided with the solar kit which contains instructions for a quick and safe installation. Advanced users will also benefit from an additional user manual for the solar controller (see documents tab).
