How should I store my Rollable Solar Panel?

To store the product, simply disconnect the cords. Ensure the product is clean and dry (use a damp cloth and a mild soap solution), and then roll with the solar side facing out. Use the attached Velcro® strip to hold in place when rolled. Store in a cool dry environment (temperature range -30-60° C).

How durable is my Rollable Solar Panel?

Rollable Solar Panels are incredibly durable, flexible and 100% waterproof. General flexing provides no issues at all. Do not fold the solar panel material as this will cause shunts and affect overall performance.

Do I need to use a charge controller when charging my battery with a Rollable Solar Panel?

A charge controller is not required if the battery capacity is 100x greater (or more) than the panel output. For example, a 100Ah battery would not need a charge controller as long as the panel output is 1A or less. If a charge controller is required, please size it appropriately to the panel output.

What is the best way to secure my Rollable Solar Panel?

You can use the grommets on each of the corners and a tie cord to hold the panel in place. This is important to reduce loss or damage from high winds.

Can I leave my Rollable Solar Panel permanently connected to a battery?

You may leave the panel permanently connected to your battery since the built-in blocking diode in the junction box blocks the draining of your battery. As with any permanent connection to a battery, safely clean the connection as needed (charge controller may be necessary).

What type of solar is used in Rollable Solar Panels?

Amorphous silicon on a flexible polyimide substrate.

What connectors are used on the Rollable Solar Panels?
