  • 85 Watt Framed Solar Panel with 25 year limited warranty
  • 6 Amp Charge Controller

    What amount of power can be produced with this system?
    85 watt solar panel = 4.94 amps of solar energy per hour of direct sun.

    4.94 X 5 hours of direct sun = about 24 amp-hrs per day
    24 AH X 7 days/ week = 168 amp-hours per week. 168 X 12V = about 2016 watt-hours of energy in one week.

     If you have more sun (in summer) then you have more power, if you have less sun (in winter), then you have less power. A few examples of power usage of some devices:
    Laptop computers: 40-90 watts per hour of use.
    19" TV: 95 watts
    17" monitor: 120 watts
    17" LCD monitor: 40 watts
    Box fans: up to 100 watts
    Radio: 20-75 watts
    Charge controller protects battery from overcharging. Use the included 12V DC female socket to charge cell phones, camera batteries, AA/AAA batteries. The 400 Watt modified sine wave inverter will power 120V AC loads up to 400 watts and includes USB output to charge your small devices like smartphones, iPod, etc. Add a second solar panel for a total of 160 watts of solar (requires larger charge controller). Experiment, have fun with this terrific starter solar kit!
