This 43 Watt Solar Panel easily handles the charging of appliances such as mobile phones, digital cameras, and more power hungry devices such as laptop computers*. It is ideal for the caravan enthusiast who wants independence from mains power hook up and is even capable of charging larger appliances such as a colour TV*. The 43 watt panel provides a continuous trickle feed, maintaining and extending the life of any 12 volt battery and is particularly suited for maintaining 12V caravan batteries (for example up to a two week long holiday with modest power use).

A 43 Watt solar panel for that two week long caravan holiday

This solar panel uses a high efficiency crystalline cell for "all weather " charging. It is water resistant, has a robust construction for outdoor use and a 20 year cell warranty and 10 year module warranty. The 43 Watt solar panel is supplied with all the necessary cable (5m), connectors and detailed installation instructions.  In common with all the larger panels, it includes bypass diodes to minimise the effect of shadows on charging capability.

What else do you need?

The 4Ah (STS01204) Charge controller or equivalent must be used with this kit to protect the battery from being overcharged and to prevent reverse current drain. If you do not have one, it can be bought here.

A solar panel carry bag is available. This is a great addition where your panel will be used in temporary locations - e.g. when used with a touring caravan. Made from hard wearing shower resistant Cordura, the carry bag offers tough custom built protection for your solar panel.

A universal stand is also available. It quickly and easily fits to the panels enabling them to be used "Œfree standing " , angled to suit the time of day/year and conditions.
