This 60 Watt Solar Panel is the choice of the caravan enthusiast who wants independence from mains power hook up for long term touring. It is the right solar panel to power a larger appliance such as a laptop, colour TV or a slow cooker*. It will easily handle the charging of small appliances such as mobile phones, digital cameras, and electric toothbrushes.  The 60 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 and boat batteries (for example up to a two week long holiday with modest power use).

A 60 Watt solar panel for the longer term boating 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 60 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 universal stand is also available. It quickly and easily fits to the panels enabling them to be used "free standing " , angled to suit the time of day/year and conditions.
