Product Description

Description
The Renogy bendable solar panel uses advanced technology backed by contact Sunpower Monocrystalline solar cells that have been laminated into a flexible plastic sheet. The result is a solar panel that is far more durable than traditional glass and aluminum models, with twice the efficiency (approx. 20%) of flexible thin film solar panels.
With these advanced solar cells, you will get greater power efficiency even though the panel is no larger than a traditional model. The plastic back sheet can be curved to a maximum 30 degree arc and mounted on an RV, boat, cabin, tent, or any other irregular surface. The flexibility of this panel also makes it ideal for storage in tight spaces or crowded areas that are typically off limits for traditional glass and aluminum models.
While this solar panel packs 100W of power, it only weighs a mere 3lbs, making it easier to transport, hang, and remove. While this panel may be damaged by sharp objects or scraping, there is no risk of shattering or cracking.

The panel is very nicely made and VERY light.
Adele Blood
Pumps out 5 amps at 12 volts in direct sunlight, exactly right for a 100W panel.

I acquired this panel to supplement a permanantly-mounted traditional glass/aluminum framed panel on the top of my pop-up camper. It is wired into the same controller, I plug it into an external SAE plug on the back wall. I decided to get this instead of a less-costly glass panel for two reasons. The light weight and flexibility would make it easier to transport, store for travel, and deploy than a glass panel, and if I decided I wanted to mount it on top of the camper in the future, the light weight and low profile would make mounting easier and wouldn't affect my ability to lift the camper top.

The other review indicating the wiring connections might not be as robust as I wanted, concerned me. In my use, the 15' of 10 gauge wiring weighs as much as the panel, so I used the grommets on the wiring end of the panel to zip tie the wire leads straight out. This eliminated any pulling on the wiring connections,

In my initial testing the panel produced up to 4.9 amps of current at my controller. As I expected, since it has only 32 cells, versus a more-common 36 cells, it is highly susceptible to shading, losing 50% or more of charging when shading of one cell occurs. Having it portable will allow me to place it where I expect the best sun to be while I am off doing my thing. The light weight allows it to lay on the camper, on my windshield, against a tire, or wherever I choose to place it within the constraints of my wire length and ability to tie it down against the wind. The grommets on the backing plastic allow a couple bungies to keep it most places I envision using it.

I bought four of these for my Airstream. They fit perfectly on the roof, and were easy to secure with rivets through the pre-drilled grommets. I also ran a bead of sealant around the edges to keep water from getting underneath. I would definitely recommend these.

Put 2 of these on top of a 2007 Tundra and 2004 Tacoma. they are a little thinner than the colorful Ikea cutting boards, but a little stiffer. Stuck them down with a powerful automotive tape made for attaching spoilers. I mentioned the name brand in another review, but that review got dinged because of that, so you'll just have to search for that stuff on your own. I used the Renogy brand plugs to do the wiring and get it hooked up to the aux battery in each truck. 5 hours of good sun topped up the 108Ah batteries easily.

I'm a ham radio operator and I have sleep apnea that I use a CPAP for. I got this to use on ham radio events as well as to keep a battery charged while camping to run my CPAP off of. Gotta say -- this works great! I topped off the battery in about 5 hours in a fogbank, which kinda shocked me. Some of it is that the battery wasn't really *that* low, but the panel really does work well.

I am able to easy pack this with other things and it doesn't feel fragile. In fact, that might even be a downside -- I keep having to remind myself to be careful with it, because it doesn't feel like it should need that. I do worry a bit that the wires will come off, but so far no issues whatsoever.

I paid a premium to get the flexibility, but for a mobile panel that I put up "wherever" it was well worth it.

Realy like this Renogy 100 W Monocrystalline Bendable Solar Panel so far. It is light, thin and flexes about 30 degrees. It has been putting out 5+ amps at full sun light. Seems to be well made and with some care I am hoping that it will continue work well as a portable removal solar panel on my boat. Thus far I have only used it on the bimimini top where it is secured with thin bungy cord and line. The grommets are small diameter with about a 1/4" hole. I do wish they were larger, but this is a very minor complaint. We will have to see how the solar panel holds up.

The open circuit and short circuit outputs are very near the ratings, so all is good there. I tested an older and a newer unit. The newer ones are slightly shorter with the white edge reduced opposite the connector side, and four small grommeted holes are provided.

A big problem however is the attachment of the diode box (the rectangular thing the wires come out of). In both units the silicone bond around it was partly peeled away with the box lifted off the surface slightly at one end. The wires are heavy and can further damage this area in handling. In one panel the box tore off entirely and one connector tab under it broke away at the panel surface. I had voided the warranty by drilling mounting holes in the unit so the seller initially was not going to fix the unrelated box failure under the warranty. But they ultimately offered to pay shipping to look at it, which was good of them.

But since the warranty was busted anyway I fixed the connector myself using plastic welding methods I have and soldering. It will be helpful if the diode box is attached mechanically. I built some clips to do so, but if you bond it down tight to a roof there will be no room underneath for such clips. Then flat head screws from below could work, but be careful about drilling holes, I suggest you ask exactly where such holes are permissible.

The diode box does not appear to be weather tight but the seller assured me it is.
