Monocrystalline Solar Panel 5 best for a trickle charger
5w Monocrystalline Solar Panel produces 12v dc.
Firstly, this 100w solar panel has high efficiency when tested side by side with a polycrystalline solar panel. This makes It is ideal for both permanent and mobile use. This is ideal for keeping a car battery charged, a small light batter charged or even electric fence fully ready.
If you want bigger check out the 80w and the 250w solar panel
Secondly, because the panel is fitted with generous 2m of special solar cable it can work at high roof temperatures with very minimum power losses. Also a pair of male / female MC4 connectors are ready crimped on the end of cable so they are ready to go.
Thirdly this is fitted with a blocking diode, this stops the battery sending current to the solar panel and damaging it.
Monocrystalline Solar Panels are also the best choice for applications in warmer climates as they operate well even in high ambient temperatures.
Finally the long-lasting, high-efficiency monocrystalline solar cells and the tough and with an aluminum frame will give you years and years of consistent free power. The waterproof design ensures that the panel can be used in all weather conditions.
This 5w solar panel can be used for trickle charging 12V lead acid batteries with capacity 50Ah and higher directly. For smaller batteries a solar charge controller is recommended to prevent overcharging, this is not included with the solar pane. Without a solar charge controller the state of charge of smaller batteries should be monitored constantly.
