This set of 200W folding solar panels from The Bush Company are an outstanding solution to the need for effective and efficient portable solar power for your camping and touring set up.

These panels are built with Sunpower Solar Cells; “SUNPOWER” are world famous producing extremely high efficiency solar cells with excellent shade tolerance. The panels are monocrystalline with full copper backing. this means that they are not only flexible but also incredibly durable and will even keep working if you ‘accidentally’ put a hole right through one of the panels. When folded they are only 560mm by 570mm and the total weight is only 4.85Kg which is perfect for carrying in your 4WD, caravan or camper trailer.

The panels are rated with a peak output of 11.5Amps, but we have seen these panels produce over 13Amps in optimum conditions. Maximum output is governed by many factors such as temperature, available light and the state of charge of the batteries connected to it.

  1. I bought this product in December 2017 from Dean. He was great, explained lots at his shop. As I was travelling he made up wires to suit the task. The shop was a typically factory outlet so don't expect a retail fit out. The shop had lots of stuff on display and I ended up buying some bags with transparent lids.
    The panels do peak out at about 13 amps and within 2 hours of sunrise it was doing around 5-8 amps.
    I ran a fridge and lighting at night. One morning I did have a flat battery but the panels charged the car battery with 40 minutes and the car started.

    I only run one battery and used the panels everyday for 2 weeks out at Fraser Island and 1770. No problems.

    The product unfolds in 10 seconds and is good to go in 30 seconds. The 4 panels make it quick and easy to handle. After using this I think the blankets that fold out in 10 bits will eventually be a pain.

    Would I buy this product again? absolutely. I'll be ordering more of their transparent canvas bags as they were great.
