Welcome to our 100W semi-flexible solar panel with a rear cable exit. This panel, like the rest of our SolarGo2 panels, is built to last with a strong ETFE diamond surface and a polymer composite material back face.
It includes the latest generation A-grade mono crystalline solar cells and 5 metres of high end 2.5mm² UV stable DC cable making sure you get the best transmission of power from your panel to your controller. This is our 2nd generation of the SolarGo2 semi-flexi panel and is designed to flex more along the long edge giving you the ability to install on tighter curves without the fear of damaging the panel.
Designed to last in an outside environment for years to come whether it is on top of a motorhome roof, a caravan or even a boat out at sea, this panel will work in all weather conditions. The SolarGo2 semi-flexible 100W panel is installed as a bottom exit system with a small simple cable exit on the rear of the panel allowing you to thread the cable into the roof, giving you a great looking stealthy install on the top of your surface with no trip hazards.
The new flexibility of this 2nd generation solar panel means you can “bend” the panel along its longer length by up to 40 degrees! This 100W panel is designed to be outside and work in all weather conditions, providing you with variable amounts of power throughout the year depending on the weather conditions and the time of year.
As an example, we would say it will give you an average of around 33Ah (600Wh) per day in the summer in the UK and 4.4Ah (80Wh) per day in the winter. This panel will require a charge controller if being connected to a 12v battery.
This panel will require a charge controller if being connected to a 12v battery.
You will need to have access to a DVM (digital voltmeter) that can measure DC voltages up to 100V or higher and DC Amps up to 10A. Then with the wires from the panel (not connected to anything else) connect the red probe to the red wire and the black probe to the black wire to test the voltage coming from the solar panel.
This should give a reading of between 14 and 26 Volts DC depending on light conditions at the time. Then set your DVM to test the current, i.e. amps, coming from the panel and connect the probes as before. This may involve moving one of the probes on the DVM.
The results will vary depending on the panel, but any positive reading indicates that your panel is working. Both tests are basically short circuiting the panel. Check your solar panel instructions for more help on this.
All Our SolarGo2 panels come with a pre-installed cable. This cable is 5m long and is designed to get the very best power transfer from your panel to the controller. This is normally plenty of cable for your install, but more is available on our web site.
The main difference between the two technologies is the type of silicon used in the solar panels:
Mono-crystalline solar panels have solar cells made from a single crystal of silicon, this is still considered the best of the current solar panels.
Poly-crystalline solar panels have solar cells made from many silicon fragments melted together. And although this has improved over the years with technology it is still not as good as mono-crystalline. It is more of a ‘best of the rest’ panel.
Your solar panel will need replacing ASAP. The area letting in water, will eventually let water onto the silicon and as soon as we have a frost the water will freeze and break up the silicon inside the panel stopping the panel from working. This can also create a short circuit that could make the installed solar controller fail, costing you more to fix the problem.
Yes, all SolarGo2 panels are designed to be left outside all year-round rain or shine. However, they are not designed to work underwater i.e., submerged.
Our SolarGo2 Flexi panels are designed to last. We give you a 1-year product guarantee and a 10-year cell guarantee.
