Highly durable black semi-flexible solar panel reinforced with anodised aluminium and a strong ETFE surface and made from monocrystalline solar cells. This model also features a rear-fitted circular junction box and 3m dual core cable. This high efficiency 160W solar panel is perfect for permanent outdoor use to provide free electricity for charging 12V batteries to power various applications, such as in a motorhome, caravan, camper, boat, or for solar lighting systems, off-grid, and back up solar power systems. The panel can also be used to provide direct power supply for applications not sensitive to changes in input voltage / current (e.g. electric motors or pumps) and for various grid-tie applications.

Aluminium reinforcement and strong ETFE coating:

This reinforced semi-flexible solar panel has a unique 7-layer construction, featuring an embedded sheet of anodised aluminium fully encapsulated within the solar panel. This additional reinforcement offers greater strength and resilience, making this one of the most robust semi-flexible solar panels available on the market.

In addition to the aluminium reinforcement, the surface of this 100W semi-flexible solar panel is made of strong ETFE material which has a longer service life compared to standard semi-flexible solar panels. As a result, these particular semi-flexible solar panels are extremely hard-wearing and less prone to cracking , delamination and corrosion. The lightly textured coating of this panel creates an anti-reflective surface which allows the panel to absorb a far greater amount of light, thereby increasing efficiency. ETFE material has long been used in applications where durability and high-temperature resistance is required, such as in the Eden Project, Cornwall.

Victron 75V 15A MPPT controller comes from the intelligent SmartSolar range, which uses the latest ultrafast MPPT technology to maximise energy harvest whilst maintaining optimal battery health. This SmartSolar MPPT controller uniquely features built-in Bluetooth, to allow remote system monitoring via any Bluetooth enabled device, in addition to an intelligent BatteryLife function .

This double core 5m cable can be used in solar charging kits to extend solar panel leads, or as a battery cable between the solar charge controller and your battery, or for many other applications, such as in vehicles, boats or for general wiring needs.

The cable comes fitted with a fuse holder and 15A blade fuse, as well as 8mm ring terminals which make connection to the battery quicker.

4.0mm2 cross section makes this cable perfect for current up to 12A and ensures negligible power loss (for example, for off-grid 12V solar panels and charging kits up to 180W, or large 24V/36V solar panels with a higher power rating).
