This high quality, waterproof 40W folding solar kit is designed to provide free power for charging 12V batteries, for example in vehicles and boats (motorhome, caravan, camper, narrow boat, yacht etc) or any other systems with a 12V battery or battery bank. It comes with everything required for battery charging: an advanced 10A 12V solar charge controller, and 5m cable with a battery plug, fuse and crocodile clips. You can start using the kit immediately – simply connect it to your battery and find a well-lit area for the folding solar panels.
The kit comes with a stand which is very easy to set up and adjust. A handle and latches ensure ease of storage and portability. The storage case included with the kit is made with a layer of foam, which will completely protect the glass and the frame and prevent any accidental damages. In addition, the corners of solar panels are protected by plastic which reduces the risk of damage and adds to the aesthetically pleasing design.
The 10A waterproof solar charge controller included with the kit will protect your battery from over-charging (it controls the state of charge of your battery every second). The controller has many other protection functions, such as stopping reverse current at night (from the battery back to the solar panel), incorrect polarity and short circuit protection. 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.
In addition, the solar charge controller has a very high degree of water protection – IP66 (which means it’s completely sealed), so it is absolutely safe to use this solar kit in all weather conditions.
The kit is suitable for sealed, gel and flooded 12V batteries: the solar charge controller allows battery type selection for maximum efficiency of charging.
