Review of Go Power! RV Solar Panels 34272628


Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Go Power! Solar Flex kit. Now, this Solar Flex kit is perfect for RVs and boats. It's flexible design can conform to almost any surface, which gives you a lot of options when it comes to mounting the panels.Now, this kit simply converts the suns energy into DC electricity and that electricity charges your batteries, and ensures that you always have power when you need it. The unit features 200 watts and 11.36 amps total of charge power. So, 100 amps or .. Excuse me, 100 watts per panel.The kit comes with what you need to keep your batteries charged and it's able to charge up to two batteries.

The panels can be installed by adhesive, or screws. Stainless steal grommets are built into the panels for ease of installation.The solar panels are durable, allowing a bend of up to 30 degrees. It's a really nice design, and again, easy to get installed. Very thin construction, about three millimeters thick. This kit comes with the solar panels.

It also comes with your 30 amp digital PWM solar controller. It comes with your MC4 red output cable, and MC4 black output cable. As well as all the necessary mounting hardware, connectors for wiring, hardware for installation, and so on. It also has fuse protectant, so it comes with a fuse holder and the appropriate fuse.Now, the solar controller is this unit here. This is a really nice design, it's kind of the brains of the system.

It's easy to use. It's got the on board navigation with the back lit digital display. This allows you to choose battery type and charging profile. It works for sealed, AGM, and flooded battery types. The battery charging profiles include float charge, bulk, or absorption charge, and equalization charge.This features an automatic equalized feature that will charge and recondition your batteries once a month, at a higher voltage, to ensure that any excess sulfonation is removed.

It also features maximum power boost technology, which allows you to override the normal charging algorithm of the solar controller. That mode is designed to be used before the end of the day. If you know you will require many loads through the night, it can also be used when you have just installed the solar controller to put batteries on a boost charge right away.Now, the controller also displays voltage, PB charging current, and batter state of charge. Errors will also be displayed, so you can quickly identify and resolve any issues that come up. It offers a standard USB connector, which is located right here. You just pop out this plug, and then you have access to the USB port. That's an onboard USB port, which delivers 5 volts to small mobile appliances such as cellphones, tablets, and small music players. Also, it has a connection point for connecting an inverter, which is located right here on the bottom side of the unit.The controller also features battery reversed polarity protection, solar-array reverse polarity protection, over temperature protection, and over current protection. When it comes to the construction of the solar panels, again, they're a nice low profile design. Stainless steel grommets, so you can easily mount them with screws. Or you could also apply adhesive on the back and mount it that way as well.When it comes to the construction, we're looking at a laminate TPT back sheet. Again, with the stainless steel grommets, it's a very strong, durable design. The panels, each one measures 44 and 5/8s inches long by 21 and 7/16 inches wide, but about 1/8 inches thick. Each panel ways under three pounds, so 2.9 pounds. Maximum power voltage is 17.6 volts, open circuit voltage is 20.8 amps, hort circuit current 6.14 amps. And the maximum system voltage is 600 volts DC.Easy connecting with the unit. Basically, you have your two wires and you have the connection points located right here on the back. Battery one primary, primary for battery one. Solar panel positive, solar panel negative. Battery two and battery two. So, a secondary plus a negative or a positive and negative. Everything is labeled for easy connecting.Again, you're going to get the appropriate connectors to combine the panels, the fuse, fuse holder, and wiring connectors. And all the necessary installation hardware. Quick connect system, so you can easily get things connected quickly and easy installation. It doesn't take long at all once you have it all mapped out and laid out the way that you want to install it.Now, I do need to make a special note. Sealant and adhesive will depend on the roof membrane materials. So, that varies from application to application. That's why it's not included with this kit.That's going to do it for today's look at the Go Power! Solar Flex kit.
