Polycrystalline 10W 12V Solar Panel

altE solar panels are designed specifically for use in OFF THE GRID applications. A 10 watt solar panel is great for charging small electric devices, like tools, fans, radios or cell phones. It is also good for supplying a continuous trickle charge to a 12 Volt battery, for example. These solar panels are lightweight (under 3 pounds!) and portable, so you can take them anywhere - on the road, camping, hiking, wherever! Additionally, they are manufactured in accordance to ISO9001 standards and certified by IEC and CSA/US to assure electrical safety compliance.

One of the biggest advantages of solar energy is FREE ELECTRICITY! Off grid living is cool - it makes you feel so independent. Once you get the bug, and start small with this solar panel, you'll be looking around the house or cabin to see what else you can power. This 10 watt solar panel consists of 36 polycrystalline solar cells, and can operate in temperatures as low as 49 degrees below zero and as high as 185 degrees Fahrenheit - those are some extreme temperatures! And with the sturdy aluminum frame, and 3.2mm tempered glass, the durability of this module allows for long term usage and worry-free off-grid living.

And don't forget to watch our videos to the right, on how to wire solar panels, the best orientation, and off-grid solar system demonstations - to name a few. altE is the best place to start learning how solar energy works, and the numerous advantages of solar energy. We're here to help you make renewable do-able!
