  • The 50W Solar Panel with Integrated Charge Controller brings together PowerFilm’s 30 years in the solar industry with custom solutions using high-efficiency SunPower monocrystalline (c-Si) solar cells.   

     

    The PowerBoost series of charge controllers utilize high-efficiency DC-DC converters and a proprietary power point tracking system to optimize the power collected from the solar panel and efficiently charge a battery.  

     

    The PowerBoost will provide the most power to a battery and extend the battery’s lifetime. This charge controller is designed specifically for use with solar and will not overcharge a battery like with 3 stage chargers connected to solar modules.

     

    Leveraging our deep expertise in custom encapsulations, varied substrates, and total electronics, the Soltronix 50 Watt Solar Panel provides unsurpassed efficiency delivering more power to your system.

    What's included:

    Best uses:

    • 12V battery charging

    • Trolling motor, smartphone, fish finder, GPS, car, RV, lawnmower, ATV

    • Camp lighting

    Benefits:

    • Integrated Charge Controller - connect to your device and start charging without worrying about additional components or cables.

    • Rugged Encapsulation - protection from hot, humid environments, icing, water immersion, and saltwater spray.

    • Lightweight - weighs less than 6lbs.

    • High Efficiency - made with top of the line Sunpower crystalline solar cells.

    • Whole-Cell Design - reduces induced cracks and defects and maximizes power.

    • Cost-Effective - due to an ever-increasing scale, the cost of crystalline solar panels continues to drop, making it an affordable solar technology.

  • If the panel is wet, wipe it down before storing it in a cool, dry environment.

     

    All connections must be solar positive (red) to battery positive and solar negative (black or blue) to battery negative. Reversing can damage the solar panel. Consult your battery manufacturer if you have questions about the specifications of your battery.

     

    Operating Voltage and Current are typical values when tested under load at AM 1.5 lighting conditions. Power performance may vary due to temperature, light spectrum, angle to the sun, and other effects (minimum 95% rated when new).

      1. Set the panel on the ground (or another surface) with the solar side facing up and pointing towards the sun.

      2. Use the grommets on each corner and a tie cord to hold the panel in place and reduce loss or damage from high winds.

      3. Connect the appropriate accessory and cable for the type of device you will be charging.

      Electronics:

      1. Connect the 12V Female Car Charger Adapter (RA-2) (not included) to the panel.

      2. Use your own USB car charger adapter to connect your device to the RA-2, or use a 2.4A Dual USB 12V Adapter (RA-14B) (not included) to charge USB electronics.

      Selecting a battery:

      • Soltronix Solar Panels are compatible with all 12V flooded lead-acid and AGM batteries (10Ah or larger are recommended) and many LiFePO and Li-ion batteries (consult battery manufacturer to confirm solar compatibility).
