This Solarland 5 Watt solar panel is designed for off-grid battery charging. It will work best when used with a small charge controller, but can be used without a charge controller due to its low power output.
Solarland Multicrystalline 5 Watt 12 Volt Solar Panel
Solarland has become a well known manufacturer of high quality, off-grid solar modules and incorporating the best state of the art technology into their products. All solar panel models available in the United States are constructed using high-efficiency, non-Chinese multicrystalline silicon cells. Most panel models are designed for 12 Volt applications, but some models are available in 24 Volts, and designed to meet all the necessary industry certifications. Solarland implements very strict quality control standards and each module is put through a three-stage flash test process. The glass is made to be highly transparent and low iron tempered at 1/8" thick. The cells are encapsulated with EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate), which protects the module from the damaging effects of UV light. The frame is constructed of heavy-duty anodized aluminum for durability and strength. Solarland is confident in the quality of their products which is why they offer one of the best warranties in the industry. All panels are designed and built in accordance with the CE IIEC61215:1995 standard and UL1703 standard.
