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.
