An 80 Watt solar panel for long touring holidays

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 80 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.
