120w 12v/24v Portable Folding Solar Panel without a Solar Charge Controller

This high quality, waterproof 120W portable folding solar panel is designed to provide free power for charging 12V/24V batteries, for example in vehicles and boats (motorhome, caravan, camper, narrow boat, yacht etc) or any other system with a 12V/24V battery or battery bank. This is the ideal solution for experiencing the benefits of solar without the permanency of a mounted solar panel, as this panel can be folded and stored away when not in use.


  • Adjustable aluminium stand, handle and latches
  • 5m solar cable
  • Padded Storage / protective case
  • The solar panel is completely waterproof, so the unit can be used in all weather conditions
  • The high efficiency (60W + 60W) mono-crystalline solar panels are made of high quality German solar cells

These German manufactured, high-efficiency solar cells perform exceptionally well in low light conditions (particularly when compared to solar cells of other origin) and they produce a good amount of power simply in daylight, even when direct sunlight is not available.

Provided without a Solar Controller

This folding solar panel is supplied without a solar charge controller, to offer the flexibility to choose the controller best suited to your application. You can use your existing solar charge controller with this panel or it can be paired with any of our solar charge controllers.

This folding panel also allows you to remotely mount a solar charge controller in a convenient location for easy monitoring and quick access. This folding panel can be easily connected to one or more similar folding panels if necessary. The entire system can then be connected through a larger solar charge controller to increase the energy yield.

The folding portable solar panel comes with 5m (bare ended) solar cable to connect the panel to your choice of solar charge controller. The design incorporates a stand which is easy to set up and adjust, while the handle and latches ensure ease of storage and portability. The storage case included with the panel is made with a layer of foam which provides protection for the glass and the frame, and prevents any accidental damage. In addition to this, the solar panels’ corners are protected by plastic shields, which reduce the risk of damage.

Advantages of Portable Solar

Portable solar panels have quickly become a popular option for those looking to harness the power of the sun while on the go. These panels offer a number of advantages over traditional, fixed solar panels, making them a great choice for a wide range of applications.

First and foremost, the most obvious advantage of portable solar panels is their portability. They can easily be transported and set up wherever you need them, which makes them ideal for camping, RVing, boating, and other outdoor activities. This portability allows you to harness the power of the sun no matter where you are, providing you with reliable and sustainable power sources.

Another major advantage of portable solar panels is that they are easy to install. Unlike traditional, fixed solar panels, which often require professional installation, portable solar panels can be set up by just about anyone. This makes them a great option for people who are on a tight budget, or who want to avoid the hassle of professional installation.

In addition to being portable and easy to install, portable solar panels are also highly efficient. They use advanced technology to track the sun and optimize power output, which helps to ensure that they are producing as much power as possible. This efficiency means that even small portable solar panels can produce enough power to meet the needs of most portable devices, making them a great choice for powering laptops, tablets, and other electronic devices.

Lastly, portable solar panels are also very cost-effective. They are often less expensive than traditional, fixed solar panels, which can make them an attractive option for people who are on a tight budget.

Overall, portable solar panels are an excellent choice for anyone looking to harness the power of the sun while on the go. They are portable, easy to install, highly efficient, and cost-effective, making them a great choice for a wide range of applications. Whether you're camping in the wilderness, boating on the open water, or just looking for an alternative power source, portable solar panels are a great option to consider.
