Can you confirm if this panel, along with it's associated controller, would be suitable to be left permanently connected to a dual purpose battery for charging? e.g the controller handles overcharge etc?

Can this be mounted on a caravan roof satisfactorily and does it need any other bits to acheive this are all mountings supplied
Asked by: Anonymous
If you were to mount it to the roof of a road faring vehicle it would have to be done professionally, there are laws which can be upheld for incorrect mounting of solar equipment on moving vehicles.

With the regulator, you said it would charge a 12v battery, would two 12v batteries connected together work?
Asked by: Anonymous
provided the batteries are connected in parallel it will be fine.

Can this unit be permanently mounted on a boat?
Asked by: Anonymous
This depends on whether it is meant for salt water or in land. Salt water will corrode the connections, so could cause damage and in these conditions, we would not recommend mounting on a boat. However, in normal inland conditions (rain, canal water etc), it shouldn't be a problem.

Would this kit be suitable for use to power the "average" homes lighting? What other items would I need to do this? Many thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
no - this, like most solar panels, provides 12V with a peak output of 3.5A. It will not work with mains electric devices.

The specification states panel is ''Water resistant''. If unit is situated on a caravan roof for 2-3 weeks at a time in all weathers, can one expect it to be ''Waterproof'' long term? Regards.
