RS PRO 10wp Solar Panel Kit Bulk Pack

The RS PRO 10wp Solar Panel Kit is great for weekend caravan trips and low power projects such as powering electric fences or charging power tools. It contains a reverse feed diode to prevent back feed and is supplied with all the necessary cable, connections and detailed instructions.

This kit is great for small power consumption projects and perfect for use in boats and caravans during weekend trips. The 10-watt solar panel kit can even be used for projects as diverse as powering electric fences or charging small power tools. The 10-watt panel provides a continuous trickle feed maintaining and extending the life of any 12-volt battery. The 10-watt solar panel is fitted with a blocking diode to prevent reverse current drain.

Features and Benefits

• High-efficiency crystalline cell for "all-weather" charging • Perfect for battery maintenance, off-grid lighting projects and use in caravans and boats over a weekend period
• Water-resistant, robust construction for outdoor use
An inbuilt diode protects against battery discharge
• Renewable energy solutions for light and medium applications

Note

The 10W panel kit does not require a charge controller if the battery to be used is larger than 70Ah
***Cell performance warranty states that at 20 years the cell output will be no less than 80% of new performance values – i.e the cell degradation rate will be no greater than 20% in 20 years

Applications

Solar “photovoltaic” panels use the power of the sun to generate electricity and can be used in a variety of applications from calculators to homes. They are most effective, versatile and cost-saving in many commercial and leisure applications for charging 12/24V batteries.
Solar panels provide power through batteries at off-grid and isolated locations and are widely used in critical telecommunications and telemetry applications. Solar panels enable rapid installation of equipment at remote sites, either temporary or permanent, avoiding the costs and inconvenience of grid connection. They are designed for very low maintenance and longevity.

How Much Power?

The daily power production of a solar panel can be calculated by multiplying the panel’s peak power rating by between 0.5 and 6 depending on the time of year, angle and location. For example; an 80Watt solar panel produces a peak current of 4.55A.

What is the best way to install solar panel systems?

• Installing solar panels at a 55-65° angle increases optimal wintertime performance. • For a year-round power supply, solar panels can be combined with wind chargers.
• Solar systems can be connected in parallel to increase power and in series to increase voltage.
• To complete the system deep cycle batteries, a voltage regulator and electrical cables are required to get up and running. A range of convenient mounting kits are available for pole or wall mounting.

Do solar panels work on cloudy days?

To optimize solar energy generation, solar power panels and charging implements work most effectively in direct sunlight. They can still charge on cloudy days, though it will not provide as much power.
