This 10W solar charging kit includes:

  • High efficiency 10W monocrystalline solar panel with 3m cable
  • Advanced 5A solar charge controller with USB charging port and battery protection functions
  • 2m battery cable with crocodile clips and a fuse
  • User manual with installation instructions

10W Solar Panel:

This kit comes with awaterproof high efficiency 10W solar panelwhich is perfect for permanent outdoor use to provide free power for charging a 12V battery to then power various devices for many applications (e.g. 12V lights, fan, small water pump, electric fence etc), or for trickle charging a larger battery to maintain its charge level, such as in a camper, car, van, motorbike or boat.

The long-lasting, high-efficiency, monocrystalline cells and the tough, sealed, aluminium frame will provide years and years of consistent, free power. The waterproof design ensures that the panel can be used inall weather conditions.

5A Solar Charge Controller:

This kit includes an advanced5A solar charge controllerdesigned to protect your 12V battery whilst charging it. This advanced controller has a5V USB port(1.2A output) offering fast charging of USB compatible devices (e.g mobile phones, tablets, mp3 players etc) as well as a pair ofload terminalsfor connecting 12V loads (such as lights) if desired.

This solar controller features a full range ofsafety functionssuch as protection against reverse current at night (from the battery back through the solar panel), over charge / discharge, overvoltage, over load, short circuit etc. ThePWM(Pulse Width Modulation) technology used in this controller increases charge acceptance and prolongs the life of your battery. PWM technology can also recover some lost battery capacity.

Other features include brightLED indicatorsto show the battery state of charge as well as the status of the solar panel and 12V load. An "on/off" button is also available for the load.

The controller is compatible withsealed,gelandfloodedbatteries - the battery type can be selected by the user.

Additional items:

The panel comes with3m solar cableattached to the waterproof junction box on the back, for connection to the solar charge controller. In addition, the solar kit includes a2m battery cable with a fuse and crocodile clipsfor ease of connection to your battery.
