This waterproof, affordable, high efficiency Photonic Universe 160W monocrystalline solar panel is perfect for permanent outdoor use to provide free electricity to charge a 12V battery to power hundreds of devices and electrical appliances.
The long-lasting monocrystalline solar cells and the tough, sealed, aluminium frame will provide years and years of consistent, free power. The waterproof design ensures that the panel can be used in all weather conditions.
The panel comes with 5m of special solar cable which can operate at high roof temperatures, with minimum power losses. A pair of male / female MC4 connectors are crimped on the end of the cable for easy connection to other solar panels, extension leads or your existing system (MC4 connectors can also be cut off when wiring to screw terminals of a solar charge controller).
Each individual solar panel is thoroughly tested to the highest quality standards, and labelled with a unique serial number for further quality control and increased warranty protection.
Several of these panels may be connected in parallel or series to generate extra power for your needs.
If you are planning to use this solar panel to charge a 12V battery or battery bank: please note this panel requires a solar charge controller / regulator to charge a 12V battery. To view the full range of solar charge controllers we offer, please visit the MPPT category of our online shop.
