The 20w PV Logic flexi solar panel can deliver up to 130wh per day and as such a degree of self-sufficiency can be achieved where power demand is limited to lighting, mobile device charging, powering electric gates and other low energy consumption DC appliance power is needed. Benefitting from a two year product warranty, the panel is supplied with a 4m cable, terminals, fuse and detailed installation instructions.
NOTE – A charge controller will be needed to protect a battery from reverse feed and overcharging.

Benefit from the semi-flexible panel's self-healing top surface
The ETFE top layer gives the PV Logic flexi extra resilience in really tough conditions. ETFE has a memory effect or self-healing capacity in the event the panel comes into contact with branches etc, thus ensuring any slight abrasions are ‘healed’ within a few hours. The flexi range can even be walked on with soft deck shoes! During production the ETFE is dimpled to further protect the panel and provide an anti-slip surface, particularly useful if the panel is fitted to a boat deck.
Each panel is assembled to ensure complete encapsulation. This ensures the six layer heavy duty laminate protects the solar cell circuit from extreme conditions. The junction box is also injected with special silicon, guaranteeing no water ingress.
Cells protected from hot spots
Where used on a camper van or boat, partial shading of a solar panel is typical. In these circumstances, heat build-up and damaging hot spots can occur leading to a significantly reduced life cycle of the panel. The larger 60w and above PV Logic flexi panels have up to two shading diodes housed within the fully waterproof junction box to prevent this occurrence.
There are no square edges on a PV Logic flexi solar panel! Rounded panel corners and a unique curved junction box provide superior adhesion, no snag lamination and no sharp edges. The junction box is mechanically fixed in addition to being bonded to the panel. Strain relief is provided for the fitted 4m UV stabilised PV cable ensuring it cannot be accidentally pulled from the junction box.
The flexi range can be bonded to flat or slight curved surfaces (3cm curve per metre) such as painted aluminium, metal, GRP and fibreglass using Simson ISR 70-03. The aluminium layer is also pre-drilled with 4.5mm holes should the panel need to be mechanically fixed as well as or instead of bonding.

Please only use the glue pattern below (this is covered in more detail in the instructions), which ensures air flow under the panel is achieved preventing heat build-up and potential warping under extreme heat.
