Product Description

Description The Renogy bendable solar panel uses advanced technology backed by contact Sun power 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. Specifications Maximum Power: 100W Maximum System Voltage: 600V DC (UL) Optimum Operating Voltage (Vmp): 17.7V Optimum Operating Current (Imp): 5.70A Open-Circuit Voltage (Voc): 21.7V Short-Circuit Current (Isc): 6.10A Maximum Series Fuse Rating: 15A Dimensions: 41.3 X 21.3 X 0.12 In Weight: 4.4lbs Warranty Information 5-year material and workmanship warranty.

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 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.

These are great - lightweight, powerful, easy to use.
They aren't stiff enough to stand by themselves so need to be on a windshield or something.
They have a QC problem, note the offset of the grommet. See first pic.
They could also use holes between the cells to avoid wind.

When I saw these, I immediately thought of building a sun-tracking frame, so I've added pictures of that too. The tilt angle is manual (but the sun only moves a fraction of a degree north or south each day), but the daily rotation is loose, so I just need a tracker and actuator.

But these two have been moving my meter backward even before I had the tracker as long as there was sun and they were pointing toward it and nothing big like my fridge was on.

The connectors aren't as convenient, and the grommet misplacement takes away the final star, but I'm being picky.

Update - I'm getting about 75 Watts per panel into my grid inverter. I'm happy with that but still need to experiment a bit.

Update2 - They are doing even more today (maybe the time, or clearer air). At least 175, maybe more. My computer and accessories take 150W, I have a few lights and a fan, and my meter is going backward!

Update3 - I'm using screws to hold them to the PVC, and they may be a little tight but it appears it might be delaminating on the inside.
Also if it falls on a rock or something, it seems to stay dented. This doesn't seem to affect the power. Also the front coating could be a bit more scratch resistant - it gets dusty. I might have to try some scratch remover. But still satisfied.

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.
