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.
Alvolta 180W solar panel:
Alvolta rigid solar panels are made using high quality monocrystalline, SolarWorld cells. Alvolta provide a full range of rigid monocrystalline solar panel modules ranging from 10W - 180W. They are designed for charging 12V batteries, for example in vehicles and boats, motor homes , caravans, camping, marine or any other systems with a 12V battery or battery bank.
This kit comes with 3x Alvolta 180W solar panel. This sized solar panel would produce roughly 150 amp hours a day (AH). This would be suitable for systems running a large 2 way upright fridge, inverters, lights, water pumps and phone charging.
This 3 panel setup is what we use and recommend for fitouts with large upright 2 way fridges in caravans or customers running CPAP machines through an inverter.
