Subtype: Photovoltaic
Brand: Photonic Universe EAN: 5060297340215

The UK solar power specialist Photonic Universe Ltd is proud to offer this brand new premium quality 40W 12V solar charging kit with 40W monocrystalline solar panel, 10A 12V/24V solar charge controller, 4 specially designed aluminium brackets with bolts, nuts and washers and 5+2+1=8m of solar cable.

This high quality 40W 12V solar kit is perfect for permanent outdoor use to provide free power either directly, such as powering a fridge, laptop, lights, or for charging a 12V battery to then power various devices for many applications such as in a camper van, boat, shed or farm. It's fitted with 2x5m of cable specially designed for solar panels to carry high currents with negligible power loss. The cable also comes with waterproof MC4 connectors for ease of connectivity.

The kit comes with an advanced 10A 12V/24V solar charge controller designed to protect your battery whilst charging it. The controller uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology which increases charge acceptance and prolongs the life of your battery. PWM technology can also recover some lost battery capacity. In addition, for your peace of mind, the controller is equipped with the full set of protection functions such as stopping reverse current at night (from the battery back through the solar panel), over charge / discharge, over load, short circuit, reverse polarity etc. Its other features include LED indicators, load work mode and a temperature sensor for compensated charging.

The kit can work with sealed, gel and flooded batteries. The controller can also work in 24V mode, so if you have 24V batteries you can add 1 more similar solar panel (wired in series) to make 24V solar system.

The kit comes with a set of 4 aluminium brackets, nuts, bolts and washers. The brackets have been specially designed for this solar panel and fit perfectly making installation easy for you.

In addition, the package includes 2x1m of solar cable with MC4 connectors to use between the panel and charge controller making the total cable length to the controller 1+5=6m, and 2x2m of solar cable to use between the controller and your battery making the total cable length to your battery 8m. Battery connectors not included. If you use these extra cables, please remove and ignore "+" / "-" labels on them if there are any and follow "+" / "-" signs on cable attached to the solar panel and polarity shown on the front side of solar controller.
