REDARC portable folding solar panels are provided without a solar regulator, ideal for connection to an existing Redarc BCDC or Battery Management System. Included is a 5m uv-stabilized solar cable with a 50A Anderson plug, panel y-adapters, a tent peg and a strong nylon carry bag. The panel itself features reinforced aluminum legs, top quality stainless steel hinges and latches and a fold-away handle.
Placement of Solar panels with regards to the sun
Ideally your solar panel should be in direct sunlight for best performance. This means that as much as possible your solar panel should be perpendicular to the direction of the sun rays. In practice this is not easily achievable or convenient and so we recommend that you orient your panels so that they are facing north at about a 45° angle.
