This weatherproof 10 watt AKT solar panel is ideal for people who want to save on their electricity bills and the environment. It is powerful and portable enough to be used to power hundreds of devices that you may use in a shed, boat or caravan such as lights and pumps. This portable 10 watt solar panel is capable of generating free renewable solar power even on a dull and cloudy day.
Due to its rigid anodised aluminium alloy frame and 3.2mm thick tempered glass giving it exceptional strength, it is perfect for permanent outdoor use in the garden to provide free power either directly, such as powering a pond fountain or fan, or for keeping your car, caravan, boat or motorbike battery topped up around the clock.
Connecting 10 Watt Panels Together
These can be connected together with other panels to form larger arrays for higher voltages or greater battery charging currents. The following table gives you an idea of what is possible with this small but versatile 10W panel.
Panel Rating:10W (0.57A at 17.5V)
Panel Dimensions:300 x 330 x 25mm
Minimum Array Area
Note that this 10 watt solar panel can be connected together in either a series, parallel or a combination of both to give a higher output voltage or charging current from the array than a single panel.
For example, four of these AKT-10-M solar panels panels connected in series would give maximum operating voltage 70 volts (4 x 17.5) at 0.57 amps ( Vmp x Imp = 70 x 0.57 = 40W ). Likewise, four of these AKT-10-M solar panels connected together in parallel would give 17.5 volts at 2.28 amps ( Vmp x Imp = 17.5 x 2.28 = 40W ).
For off-grid battery charging applications, EP’s 10A Solar Charge Controller is a good choice. This powerful dual voltage (12V or 24V), 10A charge controller which uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology to extend the life of connected batteries and can work with sealed, gel and flooded batteries.
Other features of this 10A Charge Controller include LCD display, LED indicators and friendly interface with 4 multifunctional buttons and two USB charging ports. The controller also allows you to set battery capacity, automatic cut off to prevent over-charging and deep discharge, over heating, over load, short circuit and reverse polarity protection of the connected batteries.
The AKT Solar and CE logos assures the quality of the panel, so for more information, customer reviews about this 10W AKT solar panel, to visit Amazon, you won’t find it cheaper anywhere else. Free shipping is included also.
