This is the FSP-160W. A powerful 160W folding solar panel by Powerwerx. It provides up to 10 Amps of charging output for battery charging systems. It comes equipped with standard MC4 output cables, so it is easily integrated into systems of any size. Folded, it is only 21″ x 12″. A nice balance between portability and power.
Great for home back up power, camping and other outdoor activities. Unique foldable design allows for mounting on a RV, boat, tent, car, tree or any irregular surface. Take advantage of the free energy from the sun as this solar panel offers clean and modulated power output while being completely silent with no EMI/RFI. When used with the optional MPPT-300-14.6 LiFePO4 solar charge controller, you can safely charge all Bioenno 12V LiFePO4 batteries. Built-in soft carry handle allows easy portable operation.
- Adjustable Stands
- Soft Carry Handle
- Folded Latch Fasteners
- Storage Bag for Cables (and Charge Controller, not included)
- Splash Proof Design
- Lightweight for true portable operation
Due to the power of this panel, you should always use a charge controller to manage the battery charging process. While this panel will function with any PWM or MPPT controller (designed for 60 & 72-cell modules), the portable nature of this module demands small & lightweight options.
