400W 12V/24V Lightweight Folding Solar Panel With Victron MPPT Charge Controller

  • Sale
  • Regular price £749.99

This high-quality, waterproof, lightweight 400W 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 bank.

It is comprised of 4 x highly durable solar panels made from monocrystalline solar cells and reinforced with anodised aluminium and a strong ETFE surface. 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.

This high-efficiency 400W (4 x 100W) folding solar panel kit comes with:

  • Adjustable aluminium folding stand
  • 5m battery extension cable
  • 4 cables with different terminal ends, including crocodile clips and bare-ended, to connect the panel to your choice of solar charge controller or portable power station
  • Protective storage case
  • Victron 75/15 SmartSolar MPPT solar charge controller 
  • MPPT to Battery fused cables

Key features:

  • Lightweight (only 14.10 kg) and easily transportable using the inbuilt handles and protective case.
  • Suitable for all weather conditions - 100% waterproof.
  • High efficiency 4 x 100W folding solar panels are made of high quality 5-busbar monocrystalline solar cells.
  • Adjustable aluminium folding stand for positioning the solar panels towards direct sunlight to maximise their output.
  • Sturdy storage case made with a layer of protective foam to prevent accidental damage to the solar panel.

Lightweight aluminium-reinforced solar panels:

The high-efficiency solar cells perform exceptionally well in low light conditions and they produce a good amount of power simply in daylight, even when direct sunlight is not available.

These reinforced solar panels feature an embedded sheet of anodised aluminium fully encapsulated within the solar panels for added strength and resilience. In addition, the surface of solar panels is made of strong ETFE material which has a longer service life compared to standard lightweight solar panels. As a result, these solar panels are extremely hard-wearing and less prone to cracking, delamination and corrosion. The lightly textured coating of this panel creates an anti-reflective surface which allows the panel to absorb a far greater amount of light, thereby increasing efficiency.
