Tower Hamlets, London £40.00
316 days ago


This is a 15 Watt Solar Panel which you can use to charge and trickle charge your 12V Sealed Lead Acid battery. You can use this solar panel to charge medium sized batteries such as in your car, motorbike, or leisure batteries in your caravan, boat or motor home and to prevent battery drain when not in use and keep your 12V battery in good condition. It could be used for other 12V applications such as to charge a barn light battery for chickens, rabbits or other animals or even for a battery for a small animal electric fence. It would be best used for batteries I would say up to 80 Ah or lower.

The panel comes connected with 3 meters (10 foot) of cable and easy to connect interchangable connectors which have a tight and secure fit so it shouldnt get disconnected easily. The 2 connectors inclued are a Cigarette Lighter Plug which you can use to directly plug in to your car or 12V socket and a Alligator Battery Clamps which you can use to direcly connect on to a 12V battery, if your car requires the ignition to be switched on to operate the 12V socket.

This solar panel only requires daylight and not only direct sunlight to work. This is because the panel is an Amorphous Solar Panel, not a Monocrystaline or Polycrystaline panel. Therefore you can use this in our type of weather with good results. The only disadvantage of this panel is that it is big and heavy compared to other types of solar panels but this is expected and normal of Amorphous panels.

This solar panel has a blocking diode included in the junction box behind the solar panel which makes sure all power created by the panel is directed towards the battery so you wouldn't need to worry about reverse charging from the battery to the solar panel at night. This panel can also be used where a 12V battery charger is needed but there is no mains electricity to trickle charge your 12V battery.

There's a similar 15W solar panel on the Maplin website for £59.99!, Code number: N31CX, but that solar panel doesn't have a rigid frame. This panel has a rigid construction frame which holds the integrity and strength of this solar panel intact. Therefore it should stand up to normal winds and gusts and shouldn't bend easily. The panel also has a supporting metal frame included (Which I haven't used at all) so you can tilt the panel at an angle and position it to get the maximum amount of solar power from the sun at different times of the day or year.

I bought this solar panel brand new from Maplin with the intention of making a big solar powered project at the back of my garden, along with other solar panels, however I never got around to doing so because of other commitments and time restraints. It has since been carefully covered and stored since buying it. It has EVERYTHING inside it from NEW and has not been used at all fully except to test it and make sure it is working properly, of which I can say it is. It even has the polystyrene box, instruction sheet and fixings too! This panel is in an EXCELLENT IMMACULATE condition and looks very nice as it is fully black so would blend in or look great next to other surroundings so please see the pictures to see for yourself!

In the pictures you will see a 12V fan (not included) working only from the solar panel while it was on top of the solar panel which shows that some shading on this amorphous solar panel (by the fan here) still makes the fan spin. The fan used is rated at 12V DC at 0.56 A (560mA) which is 6.72 Watts.

If you have any questions about this item or are unsure about whether this will be suitable for your intended application or just to ask a small question email me and I'll answer back within 24 hours! Other than that thanks for looking!
