DIY solar kits:
Powered by Springers! Our DIY solar kits come with everything you need to install a quality solar system on your car, boat, caravan or motorhome! Solar panels can be utilized to extend battery run time when powering multiple accessories. A number of factors that can influence this include: the time of year, weather conditions, battery capacity and how long you run your appliances. It's important to oversize your solar array (where space allows) so that on a good day your solar panels will be able to fully charge your batteries and keep your loads running whilst free camping.
TRINA 285W solar panel:
The Trina Honey module adopts half-cut cell technology. Two pieces of half cells are connected in series, the power loss caused by ribbon resistance is reduced to 1/4 of that in full cells, which results in a decrease of electrical resistance within the ribbon and finally improves the overall module efficiency by more than 2%.
Half-cut design allows modules to work at low operating temperatures, which can improve energy generation per watt. The unique cell strings design makes each cell string work independently, which can significantly reduce energy loss due to mismatch problem caused by inter-row shading.
This kit comes with the Trina 285W solar panel. This sized solar panel would produce roughly 81 amp hours a day (AH). This would be suitable for systems running a 2 small fridges or a medium - large sized fridge/freezer, lights, water pump & phone charging.
Victron Smartsolar regulator:
Ultra fast maximum power point tracking (MPPT)- This solar kit also includes the Victron Smartsolar 100/20 regulator. Ultra fast tracking, especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra-fast MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.
Bluetooth smart built in- The wireless solution to set-up, monitor and update the controller using Apple and Android smartphones, tablets or other devices. Featuring a 30 day history log the regulator is also Lithium compatible & comes with a 5 year warranty.
