Flexible solar panels

Recommended Posts

I was playing with a couple last week. Seemed OK but there were the odd tiny signs they are built to a price so longevity could be an issue. Only a 2 year warranty may suggest the same.

 

All depends on how mission critical they are. If 'very' then I'd buy better, and did as mine are, but if they are only a nice to have sort of things then cheapies may work fine.

Burnscoe have a 130w semi flexible and mppt controller for $449  100w setup is $349, any thoughts on the panel itself?

I bought a 30watt v version of that one to keep the battery in the Dragon topped up while on the marina for the few months it's there. It only runs an automatic bilge pump.

I paid $275 (including shipping) for my semi flexible 100W solar panel about 18 months ago and it was distributed from NZ.  I only use it as a nice to have and am not relying on it for anything important.  It's still working fine.
