Product Description

Tired of all the noise and smell from your diesel generator? The Instapark SP-10W solar panel offers you a quiet, clean while carbon-free alternative. Capable of converting virtually unlimited solar energy into clean, green, most importantly, free electricity, this solar panel is made of high efficiency mono-crystalline solar cells embedded in transparent vinyl acetate behind tempered glass with heavy back sheet ensuring maintenance free performance. Unlike amorphous solar panels, which only last about 5-7 years of continuous use, mono-crystalline solar panels can still retain over 80% of efficiency even after 25 years of continuous use. Also, the mono-crystalline panels are much more efficient and thus smaller in size while producing higher wattage.

This solar panel is designed and engineered to primarily charge 12-Volt batteries, which store and provide usable power when needed, ideal for powering your RVs, ATV, marine boats and electronic equipments. Other than recreational applications, solar power can also help lower your energy bills by reducing your dependence on the main electrical grid and provide back-up power during power outages.

All Instapark solar panels have a 5-year limited product warranty that covers its Photovoltaic modules to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal application, installation, use and service conditions, and a power warranty that guarantees a power output greater than 80% of the minimum peak power as specified within 25 years from the date of delivery. If the PV modules fail to conform to these warranties, then Instapark will, at its sole discretion, either repair or replace the product.

This 10W panel is a great size to use as a charger for keeping your car battery topped off. Given the amount of current it can produce, over half an amp under ideal conditions, you'll want to also purchase a charge controller. I bought the SunGuard made by Morningstar (available on Amazon as well). The combo is working well together so far.

I started off by buying one of those 1.8W solar "trickle" chargers, which will not produce enough current to keep my battery charged all the time. I measured the 10W setup today, which is a mid-December sunny day in northern California. Around solar noon I got 250mA, which is a bit less than half of what this panel can do. Keep in mind that the panel was also at about a 45 degree angle to the sun, which will also reduce its power output. I really need 130-150mA for a few hours a day to keep the battery charged. Having that extra 100mA will hopefully bring my battery to a full charge over the course of a few days. My battery was down to 11.87V late last night when I hooked the panel up. By lunchtime the next day, the voltage was 12.2V. My dinky 1.8W only managed to keep the voltage around 12V over several days, which meant it was struggling to keep up at best.

The panel seems fairly well made, but it arrived with some silicone residue that wasn't cleaned off at the factory. There was also a bit of a stain on the aluminum frame. Now, I didn't buy the panel for it's dashing good looks, but it would be nice if they were a bit more careful during assembly. All the tabbing on the solar cells looks to be fairly well done. The clear encapsulating silicone was free of any bubbles. The panel uses the typical "frosted" glass found on many flat panels. It seems like the most critical stuff is reasonably well done.

I was considering this and the Ramsond 10 Watt Solar Panel. I bought this over the Ramsond as a misspec (somewhere) indicated this was thinner and would pack smaller in a Jamboree Duffel (see below). Amazon has correct (if not updated) dimensions.

My application is "Simple Cell Solar" for the 2013 National Jamboree. The goal is full cell charges nightly with a day or twos reserve for my Razr Maxx and my son's iPhone 5

Testing Configuration:
-Instapark® NEW All Black 10W High-Efficiency Mono-Crystalline Solar Panel
-ExcessUPS APC Smart UPS Back-UPS BK BP CS RBC 2 RBC2 New Replacement Battery Cartridge UPS Battery Pack
-1N5822 40V 3A Blocking Diode (only need 1)
-"Watt's Up" RC Watt Meter & Power Analyzer WU100 Version 2 (for measurements ; not needed for deployment)

In full sun I'm maxing at 7.3 Watts at about 14V . Note that you won't see 10 Watts without MPP charger as maximum power is specified at 17 or 18 volts. This deployment (and anything similar) will voltage/current balance to the battery. This isn't a limitation of this cell but I'm pointing out what you can realistically expect without a very fancy MPPT charger.

Love this solar panel, puts anywhere from 9(low light) to 15 and maybe more volts.
I have heard the cables connected to these panels called "flimsy" what I like is the sleeve that comes on it. In the back there is a little compartment where the soldered connections are made, the cables come out the back, I pushed/wiggled the sleeve inside the box closer to the soldered ends and now the sleeve is taking the pressure if the cable is tugged rather then the soldered connections.
Would buy again, probably will but bigger :)

Great product for the price and size!!!
I installed this on my RV roof A/C and it works better than advertised. It kicked out 19.6V. My RV batteries will always be full when pulled out of storage.

I give this 5 stars because of the low price for such an efficient solar panel. I did a lot of comparison shopping before I found this panel and was a bit hesitant due to the low price. I wanted a solar panel to use with my Xantrex 600HD Power Pack so that I could charge it off grid while remote camping or during an extended power outage. Please note that this panel only comes with a short length of wire off the back without any connectors included. You will need to obtain your own connector based on how you intend to use the panel. For my purposes I removed the wire that was provided, and soldered on my own 12 foot wire with a 5.5mm X 2.5mm DC charging plug so that I can charge the Xantrex unit. The Xantrex has a built-in charge controller so I don't have to worry about over charging with this panel. I have tested this with a volt meter and am very happy to see a nice strong output even in very cloudy conditions.
