250W Panasonic Premium Solar Charging Kit - Expandable
This industry-leading 250W Panasonic HIT monocrystalline solar charging kit is suitable for medium-large off-grid installations. In motorhomes, caravans and liveaboard boats, it should be capable of keeping a 12V or 24V battery bank charged with medium usage (such as LED lights; TV; water pump; phones/tablets/laptops charging; electrical fridge). The 35A Victron SmartSolar MPPT controller included as standard in this kit is capable of taking an extra 250W solar panel at a later date (or at a discount if purchased together).
This kit contains:
250W monocrystalline Panasonic Solar Panel - produces 25% more power than other similar-sized panels
35A Victron SmartSolar MPPT solar controller - capable of handling upto 500W (12V) (or
1.5m 16mm2 40A Fused Harness
Pair of 3m solar cables with MC4 connectors
This premium kit offers a huge 250W power output and is based on world-leading Panasonic (formerly known as Sanyo) hybrid technology that offers the highest available cell efficiency and consequently the smallest panels by power output on the market. The hybrid construction of these panels maximises the conversion of different wavelengths of light. These panels therefore offer great performance in both direct sunlight and diffuse daylight, ensuring power output even when it is overcast. This panel comes with an incredible 25 year warranty (registration required).
The MPPT regulator from the SmartSolar range, manufactured by Dutch company Victron Energy - one of the market leaders in solar power electronics equipment. The Victron Energy brand is synonymous with quality and reliability - ensuring that this 35A MPPT charge controller is capable of providing significantly more power to your battery bank - which improves battery lifespan and equates to lower power losses in the system. This also incorporates in-built bluetooth technology so that you can use your smartphone or tablet as monitor display for your solar power system.
For unbeatable performance and real-time monitoring, pair with the Victron MPPT Control unit or the Victron Bluetooth Dongle.. With conversion efficiency exceeding 98% and high speed maximum power point tracking (MPPT) ensure little to no power whatsoever is lost from your solar system. Protection measures include battery short circuit, reverse polarity and overcharge protection as well as temperature compensation (using optional temperature sensor) to ensure batteries last as long as they should.
To connect this kit together you will need suitable cables. We provide two x 3m cables with MC4 connectors on to enable you to connect the panel to the regulator. We also provide a suitable 1.5m 40A harness to connect the regulator to your battery bank.
