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.

Head over to the The Bush Company website to find out more about these awesome 200W solar panels.
