About this product


  • Efficient 30W monocrystalline solar panel
  • Flexible up to 20 degrees
  • Lightweight

Product overview

• Efficient 30W monocrystalline solar panel
• Flexible up to 20 degrees
• Lightweight
• Easy to set up
• IP65 outdoor rating

Portable solution
Flexible up to 20 degrees, these panels are perfect for use on boats, motorhomes, caravans or for general off grid power applications. The panels are extremely lightweight and can be mounted quickly using the included suction cups or more securely using the pre-cut fixing holders.

Add more power!
For additional power, you can combine more than one panel using a suitable combiner (not included, order code N29KR). For permanent installation, or if the solar panel is used without supervision, we recommend the use of a charge regulator (not included, order code N28KR)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought as stated but not yet fitted as base is delayed due to weather conditions. Ido however anticipate it will do the job when the sunlight improves at 58 degrees north.

Can you get the 2 pin connector fitted to the supplied leads separately as I want to fit an additional panel without using the large multi connection hub that is available from Maplins

Asked by: JM59
You can get a Maplin 4 in 1 out lead to connect up to 4 panels in parallel for greater current, same voltage.

Will the panal charge the solarpod 240.?

Asked by: Bp camping
This panel is supplied with charging clips, Solarpod utilises MC4 connections. If you change the connection method to MC4 and utilise the correct polarity then there is no reason that it shouldn't work.
