Description

A lot quieter than a generator.

Use the sun to maintain your batteries when you camp, boat, or travel. The Brunton SolarFlat Rigid Solar Panel comes in three wattages for different needs. The 2-watt panel maintains a charge in your boat or car battery, while the 5-watt panel charges small electronics such as cell phones, GPS, and digital cameras as well as trickle charges a car battery. The 15-watt panel charges everything from a cell phone to laptop, charges vehicle batteries, and runs small appliances like radios, lights, and TVs.

  • Amorphous solar cells work in both bright light and overcast conditions
  • Reverse flow protection ensures your vehicle battery won’t get overcharged
  • Weatherproof with aluminum frame for durability
  • Panels link together for more output
  • Comes with 10-foot cable, vehicle cable, battery clamps, and link adapter cable (15-watt panel)

I need a solar panel to power a router. The adapter currently used indicates following: Input 230V/50-60HZ/300 mA; Output 12V/2000mA (output of adapter is what goes into the router so I need solar panel that will provide that.

what,s the best way to mount the 15 watt rigid panel 5to a roof or wall?

Responded on

This seems like a simple question however its a bit more in depth than it first looks. It completely depends on type of wall or roof your wanting to install it on. If your looking to install it on a shingled roof i'm not entirely sure. For a wood surface however it is fairly simple. You just need a bracket. I would suggest dipping the bracket screws in silicone sealer.

Just get some picture frame brackets for the frame. Depending on the type you get you may have to loosen the picture frame on the panel.

can I charge my trolling batterie while I run the trolling motor.

Responded on

You should be able to at lease supplement the battery with the panel to get additional time. Whether or not it will charge depends on the amount of power the trolling motor draws while operating. Say, if you get the 15W panel and the motor uses 10W, you will be able to charge and operate at the same time.

Do i need a controller so my battery does not over charge

Responded on

As the bulleted list says: Reverse flow protection ensures your vehicle battery won’t get overcharged

Responded on

The bulleted list contradicts the directions in the box which advises the use of a controller for the purpose of overcharge prevention.

Responded on

If you plan on leaving it connected for long durations a controller would be advisable. The reverse flow protection does not accomplish this, it simply means that the panel will not discharge your battery at night if connected.

Hi, I would like to know, Is there any...

Hi, I would like to know, Is there any advantage in having two 15W sola panels hooked together, will I be able to power items that need more wattage to run?. I have a pickup camper with one battery, but have a few electronic items that need charging, plus I have a 700 watt inverter. Will I need to install another 12v battery to run the things I need and also charge the system. Can you tell me what I need to do. Thanks

Responded on

While Anthony's question was long ago, I thought I would add some input for others. Having two hooked together would provide you with 30W and double the amps. Dont try to run an inverter off of panels this size, it's electically inefficent. Buy DC adaptors for what you would like to run, such as phones, laptops, ect. Otherwise, your looking at getting a lot of panels, or one big panel.

For any RV application, and incorporating a power inverter, here's the deal. The panel(s) themselves will not power an inverter, however, you can have the panels and inverter connected to the 12v battery at the same time. In this instance, the battery is charging at a constant rate from the panels, and the inverter, or anything else hooked up simply uses the stored energy in the battery. I'd recommend at least 30 watts of solar power if you plan on using a power inverter. Basically 30 watts of solar power can put 10 amp hours back into a battery each day. Use this easy math to figure things out. 1 amp hour is the same as what it would take to power a 100 watt bulb for 1 hour. If you look at your electronics, the watt rating for each can be found stamped, or stickered on somewhere, sometimes on the transformer that plugs into the outlet. Phone chargers, and such use very little power, but if you want to run a blender through an inverter, they typically need 350 watts, so if you ran it for 1 hour, it would use 3.5 amp hours from the battery. Remember too that power inverters use a bit of energy while powered on, so always turn them off when not needed to preserve your battery.

how many panels can you hook together...

how many panels can you hook together 25watt. i need 65 amps.

thanks o.

They don't come in a 25 watt version, 15 watt being the highest available for a single unit. In order to get your 65 amps, you would need to hook up 65 of the SolarFlat units (each unit outputs 1000mA), but you’re likely going to see some funky output with that many linked together. Also, that's 303 square feet of solar power. You might want to consider an alternate solar/power source or contact Brunton directly to see if they have any suggestions.
