This complete off-grid van conversion kit has been expertly designed to maximise efficiency and output and therefore comes equipped with some of our most premium quality products; including a 200W fibreglass reinforced solar panel and a 20A solar charge controller designed and produced in Italy by one of the leading European solar technology manufacturers, in accordance with the highest quality standards.

In addition, this kit is supplied with a 100Ah 12V battery, a 1000W 230V pure sine wave inverter and connection cables. This van kit is an easily installed system for personal or commercial use. It can provide power to small appliances such as a TV, radio, lights, computer, laptop, printer or a low power kettle. This may vary significantly according to location and season.

Kit includes:

  • 200W semi-flexible fibreglass solar panel with durable ETFE coating and 2 x 1m solar cable and T4 connectors
  • 20A 12V/24V solar charge controller with LCD display
  • 1000W 230V pure sine wave inverter
  • 100Ah AGM deep cycle leisure battery
  • Automatic circuit breaker
  • A pair of 5m 4mm² solar extension cables with T4 connectors
  • 5m of 4mm² dual core battery extension cable with a 15A fuse
  • A pair of T4 solar connectors
  • A waterproof double entry cable gland
  • Loose ring terminals

 

200W semi-flexible fibreglass solar panel with durable ETFE coating:

The high efficiency, waterproof 200W fibreglass reinforced solar panel included in the kit features innovative 9-busbar solar cells to maximise efficiency and output. The panel is fitted with 2 x 1m of 4mm² cable with T4 connectors on the end. These can be used for easy connection to the 5m solar extension cable included with the kit.

This panel boasts a robust construction using plastic reinforced with glass fibre which creates a sturdy and durable solar panel, as well as a special textured surface that significantly reduces light reflection and improves performance in low light and cloudy conditions. The panel is easily installed with no drilling required and the highly flexible design makes this panel ideal for curved roofs, pop tops, and other surfaces where bonding is preferable for a sleek and modern finish (though it can also be fixed by bolts or screws).

20A 12V/24V solar charge controller:

This controller has been 100% designed and produced in Italy by one of the leading European solar technology manufacturers, in accordance with the highest quality standards and includes a superior 5-year manufacturer warranty. This solar charge controller uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology to improve charge acceptance and extend the life of your battery. PWM technology can also recover some lost battery capacity. The controller features a LCD display which shows advanced system information including: power, voltage and current for the solar panels and battery, energy counter, temperature, and load work.

This unit is compatible with sealed, GEL and flooded lead acid batteries. It has pre-set charging programmes for different battery types, and battery low voltage protection can be also configured according to your requirements. Load working modes can be programmed for many different applications; for example to set on/off timers for lighting/fans/pumps.

1000W 230V pure sine wave inverter:

This 1000W 230V pure sine wave inverter converts battery output (DC, or direct current) into 230V AC mains electricity (alternating current). 230V AC is the type of electricity supplied by utility companies to run standard domestic appliances such as a TV, fridge, radio, lights etc.

This is a pure sine wave type of inverter, which means that the 230V AC output harmonically follows a smooth sine wave and is almost identical to normal mains electricity. Pure sine wave output is far superior than square sine wave or modified sine wave output for running appliances.

In addition, the inverter has a USB port for powering USB-compatible devices (e.g. mobile phones, tablets, laptops, MP3 players etc.) and is also supplied with a wireless On/Off remote control (max. 50m radius).

100Ah AGM deep cycle leisure battery:

Our AGM deep-cycle batteries are non-spillable, completely sealed, and maintenance free - amongst the very safest batteries you can find. They have a much longer service life compared to standard wet-cell batteries due to lower degradation and corrosion inside the battery. AGM batteries hold charge very well and have a low self-discharge rate.

Additional items:

This kit also includes 5m 4mm² dual core battery extension cable with a 15A fuse and loose ring terminals for connecting the charge controller to the battery, an automatic circuit breaker for use between the inverter and the batteries, and 5m 4mm² solar extension cable with T4 connectors and double cable entry gland to connect to the existing 1m of solar cable fitted to the solar panel to the charge controller through the roof of the van.

Please note: due to our warehouse arrangements, the kit accessories may be shipped from a different warehouse to the solar panel, charge controller, inverter, and batteries, and therefore delivered in a separate package.

The battery is covered by a 1 year repair or replacement warranty provided by Photonic Universe. In the unlikely event that a defect is found and confirmed during this period, we guarantee that we will repair or replace defective items (at our discretion). The inverter is covered by a 1 year manufacturer warranty. For more information please refer to our Terms and Conditions. The solar charge controller is covered by a 5 year manufacturer warranty.

In addition, the solar panel comes with a 3 year workmanship warranty which covers material and production defects. The solar cells are guaranteed to produce at least 90% of nominal power in 10 years after purchase and at least 80% of nominal power in 25 years after purchase. This warranty is provided by the manufacturer of solar cells.
