What do the kits contain?
SunWorks solar panel kits provide the main items required to install solar power on your boat or vehicle. Each kit contains one or more solar panels, the appropriate SunWorks precision charge controller, and the correct cable with the connectors already attached. These kits are the one-stop way to a secure and efficient solar panel installation.
Also in the kits are full instructions with illustrations, and our recommendations for a professional looking installation.
Our kits are also available with semi-flexible solar panels.
What size of solar panel do I need?
Trickle charging your batteries can usually be achieved using a 50 watt solar panel. This size of solar panel will keep your batteries in good condition from Spring through to Autumn.
If you want enough power to maintain your batteries and power some appliances we advise fitting a 100 watt panel. This will give you a significant amount of power in the summer months and more reliable charging during the winter. 100 watts is the most popular size of solar panel fitted to motorhomes and most boats.
If you are interested in becoming independent of the mains hook-up you should consider fitting a 200 watt system.
Can I really charge both batteries?
Yes, SunWorks DUO-ECO kits are designed to charge both your engine battery and your leisure battery.
If you only want to charge one battery take a look at our UNO-ECO kits.
Examples of suitable solar panel kits:
1. You only want to trickle charge your batteries but need to do this reliably during summer and winter. Choose a 100-DUO-ECO kit. This kit will also power many appliances during the summer months.
2. You want to be independent of the mains hookup. Choose a 200-DUO-ECO kit.
Do I need anything else?
Each installation is different. Therefore our kits contain the essential electrical items, carefully matched to work efficiently together. You may also need:
