This premium 5 x 120W (480W + 120W) Miasole Peel and Stick Solar Charging Kit is ideal for larger narrow boats that need a bit more power than the usual setup. Based on the successful kit, shown off beautifully by Colin and Shaun from Foxes Afloat.

    1 x Victron 75/10 SmartSolar MPPT Controller - with in-built bluetooth technology

    1 x Pair of 5m solar cables with MC4 connectors

    1 x 1.5m Harness 6mm2 with inline fuse

    1 x Waterproof Double Cable Entry Glands - black

    1 x Pair of MC4 connectors - male and female

With the highest power density in a flexible form factor, these 3rd Generation Miasole CIGS flexible and lightweight modules are designed for narrowboats, RVs, motorhomes and yachts. With an unusually high energy yield due to excellent shadow tolerance and temperature stability, these panels give a good option for low narrowboat decks or hot motorhome roofs. 

As showcased by the boys on Foxes Afloat, the panel stick flush to the deck surface of a narrowboat. 

The 5m PV cables have been specified due to the constraints of trunking through the roof and down to the controller and batteries, but if you don't need that length, simply cut it down. Foxes Afloat decided to cut the panel connectors off, before threading through the waterproof gland on the deck, and then crimped on a pair of MC4 connectors below deck to extend the cables to the controller.

NB: Colin and Shaun at Foxes Afloat specified the requirements of this kit - whereas yours may differ. Power requirements and space availability on narrowboats is always difficult so please measure these before committing to this kit. Also, the cable lengths are adequate for their needs but you may need longer lengths if running to a different place on your boat. Let us know!
