Can another person please consider a picture of the wires. I had my panel on my automobile only utilized self adhesive magnetic sheets and it just flew off the roof damaging the wires. I would like to check out to repair service but really don’t know which a person is good and unfavorable.

Easy to fit on campervan pop top roof. Easy to fit on campervan pop top roof and keeps leisure battery topped up well.

100W Photonic Universe flexible solar panel made of back-contact cells, for a motorhome, caravan, campervan, rv, lorry, trailer, or for a boat/yacht, or an off-grid solar power system

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Made of back-contact solar cells with no shading from metal contacts on the front side of solar cells – higher output and efficiency compared to standard solar panels
  • Made of strong ETFE material which has a longer service life compared to standard semi-flexible solar panels. As a result, it is extremely robust and less prone to cracking , delamination and corrosion. The lightly textured coating creates an anti-reflective surface which allows the panel to absorb a far greater amount of light
  • Suitable for many applications, such as charging batteries in vehicles and boats, off-grid household solar systems, solar lighting and grid-tie solar systems. Flexible design allows you to mould the shape and bond it to any surface without drilling (screwing, velcro and zip mechanisms can also be used)
  • Special polimers make it possible to walk on the panel which is great for boats with limited space on the deck.
  • The panel is incredibly light, only 2.33kg, and is very thin – just 3mm, which is ideal for motorhome and caravan roofs … Scroll down to Product Description for more details about this product

I needed a panel which gave 100w but which was trim plenty of to retail outlet effortlessly when not in use. I keep this in the van and just put it on the roof whan we are off-grid, connected with 4x suction cups. Operates great and keeps the leisure batteries topped up nicely through an current smart charger with a solar / wind enter.

The solar panel came nicely packed and on time. Fitted it on my boat on a quite sunny day and my batteries had been really small and i received an 8amp cost. Pretty happy with this products.

100W Photonic Universe flexible solar panel made of back-contact cells, for a motorhome, caravan, campervan, rv, lorry, trailer, or for a boat/yacht, or an off-grid solar power system : Great bit of kit for free electric. . I tested it in good uk sun yesterday and it was giving 5 amps. The wires are a bit cumbersome but a simple connector box sorts this out. (see pic)i put mine on a 5 series bmw and it works a treat and supplies good power. The construction is very much like a plastic uk number plate so it is flexible to a point. My roof has a few curves so i had to strap and weight it down while the bonding agent set. I am already thinking about buying more for my static caravan.

The solar panel came well packed and on time. Fitted it on my boat on a very sunny day and my batteries were very low and i got an 8amp charge. Very pleased with this product.

Super efficient and worth the extra cash. You can buy 100w flexible solar panels cheaper but i was drawn in by the promise of high efficiency and it’s small size. We paired this up with a epever 20a solar charger controller and it’s been giving some impressive figures during our recent camping trips. In full overhead sun, the panel has even given a float charge of up to 7amps for a reasonable period of time (due to the charger and a high voltage due to direct sunlight). This is an impressive figure and more akin to a 150w old school panel at its best. It’s not uncommon to see 5amps going in to the batteries during lower sun angles. It’s kept our webasto cr65 fridge running even in high ambient temperatures without a need to run the engine or charge the batteries with a hook up charger as well as providing enough grunt for some led lighting and the occasional use of a 1000w sign wave inverter for charging laptops and an 8watt energy saving side light. We’re going to add a second one of these for the autumn/winter season to not only keep the 240ah agm battery pair at their best, but to allow us some more off grid camping during the shorter daylight months. Super efficient and super small considering their abilities.

Looks good but 22% more efficient may not be. There is no marking on the product or packaging to indicate that it is made by photonic universe, unlike the solar controller that has “photonic universe” printed all over it. Photonic universe have assured me that the product is made by them and is “photonic universe”. According to the specification: “the current at max power is 5. 68amp”, in their dreams of course. I have been using this panel for over a month now, charging just a phone or using it with power inverter to power a tv and freeview box and i can confidently say it’s output is normally 0. 6 amp, although there has been few occasions that i’ve noted 1. 5ampi have purchased the following, all from photonic universe:- 100w solar panel- 10amp mppt controller- temperature sensor- 100ah batteryi have managed to run my tv and freeview box (250w max) for around 5-6 hours on this system on daytime using a sine wave power inverter but the battery level has dropped from 14.

Good quality and excellent value for money. These are well made panels with a good layer of etfe protecting the cells. I’ve had flexible solar panels before with a pet covering and these are far superior.

Excellent panel, there are cheaper ones but looking at. Excellent panel, there are cheaper ones but looking at the specifications this panel is a good price. Installation was easy enough, bonded to the top of my motorhome with sikaflex 512. The length of cable attached to the panel was enough to site the solar controller on the side of the high roof in the van. I needed a flexible panel as the roof has a slight curve. Photonic universe were very helpful when i had some queries about which panel was the most suitable. All in all a good panel, you get what you pay for.

Very good together with anself 20a solar charge controller. The highest seen charge current 6,4 a. Normally, when placed on the caravan roof, charge current around 4,5 a with direct midday sun shine, even 1 a when sun is behind the clouds. Very good together with anself 20a solar charge controller.

Can someone please take a picture of the wires. I had my panel on my car only used self adhesive magnetic sheets and it just flew off the roof damaging the wires. I’d like to try to repair but don’t know which one is positive and negative.

I purchased this along with a few other bits to make a kit for my vw campervan and has working out way less than half of the cost of pre made kits available that are flat panels as for the product it is very good keeps the leisure battery toped up whilst running a 12v compresser fridge and charging phones ipads and so on.

Great output from this 100w panel. Keeping 3 110ah batteries topped up on my boat. Get the dual controller and digital display as well to make monitoring easier.

Very prompt delivery and well packaged. This panel when installed and connected gave a reading of 14. 4volts and i was well pleased with the result. If i have one grumble it would be the cable which was not very flexible and my efforts to bind it to the roof failed miserably. The cable core was so thick i had some difficulty inserting the cables into the controller.

A fellow caravaner fitted it for us and was very impressed with it. Lightweight and constantly now have 2 batteries charged.

The two panels were ordered to provide some additional power for our boat. They arrived well packed well within the amazon estimated delivery date. There are no metal parts to corrode and plenty of free edge to enable mounting to suit the environment although at the moment mine are held down with duct tape. They take the slight curve on the long axis with no effort. The units were plugged in on a rather overcast day and immediately showed and open circuit voltage of about 19. 5v and are currently keeping the engine and domestic batteries charged. The only criticism (and not enough to detract from the 5 stars i have given) is that the fly leads come out of the connector block in opposite directions – this makes a tidy installation on the boat difficult as the leads have to run to the same location and black leads on a white hull are quite noticeable.
