SOLARA has the right solar panels for every application

Here on this page you will find solar panels without frames

 

Solar panels without a frame can simply be glued or screwed directly onto the surface. On a stable base and flat mounting, the solar panels without a frame can even be walked on. A mounting system is not necessary! In addition, the solar panels are particularly light and therefore ideal for vans, campers, caravans or camper vans. Since the solar panels without a frame are extremely flat, the structure will not increase, there will not be a tripping edge and no driving or air noises will be generated.

 

The solar panels are very robust, absolutely weather and salt water resistant. Proven quality for over 20 years on sailing boats, yachts, sea marks and much more.

Simply stick on solar panels without frames. These solar panels have passed all tests. Unframed solar panels are ideal for mobile use on campers, off-road vehicles, vans, camping buses, panel vans, sailing boats and yachts.


You can find solar panels with frames on our website "Solar panels with frames"

 

Solar panels with frames are used for simple mounting with SOLARA mounting systems or other constructions.  The stable aluminium frame of the solar panels from SOLARA is very robust, absolutely weather and salt water resistant. The frame gives the solar panel the necessary stability with free and ventilated installation and protects against mechanical loads such as wind, snow, etc. 

Solar panels with frames. These solar panels passed all tests. Solar panels with frames are ideal for mobile use on campers, motorhomes, vans, mobile homes & of-road vehicles. Solar panels light, flexible & walkable.

Q&A about using a solar panel without a frame

Solara solar panels without frame on a VW T6 California Beach Camper. The light & flexible solar panel is ideal for campers, vans, panel vans & camp buses. The flat solar panels are also suitable for yachts & sailing boats.
VW T6 California Beach, Martin Degener-Koziol

Martin Degener-Koziol:

Good Morning,

ich would like to buy a foldable solar panel in order to charge the two on-board batteries in my VW T6 Beach. That is when I came across the modules from SOLARA.

My questions: 

- What are the main differences between the SOLARA Power Mobil with 102 Wp and DCsolar Power Flex with 110 Wp?

- The DCsolar panels has a little more power at a significant cheaper price. Why choose the 102 Wp model?

I am one of those people who like to pay more for quality if it also proves that longevity is sustainable. True to the motto: "It was always more expensive to buy something twice!" I look forward to your reply.

Kind regards Martin Degener-Koziol

 

Mirko Held, SOLARA:

Dear Mr. Degener-Koziol,

Thank you for you interest in our products. Our Power Mobil now also has 110 watts, the two modules no longer differ in this! Generally the Power Mobil solar panels are made in Germany and much more stable than the DCsolar Power Move solar module, which is produced for us in Asia. Here someone even can accidentally step on it and it does not matter, it is also fully seawater-compatible. It has a 5 year product guarantee compared to 2 years for the DCsolar Power Move.

The Power Mobile solar panel is intended for those who want to use the module almost every day for many years. The cable and charge controller are identical in both modules. 

 

Martin Degener-Koziol:

Dear Mr. Held,

Thank you for the quick and informative presentation. Then I know that the Power Mobile is the right choice for me. I assume that I still have to have a suitable 12V socket installed, since the regular cigarette lighter/12V sockets are probably not an option.

 

Mirko Held, SOLARA:

Dear Mr. Degener-Koziol,

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, you can use the regulator on your existing cigarette lighter, it was developed for that.

 

Martin Degener-Koziol:

Good evening Mr. Held,

I still have a question,

a) to the solar controller Fox 062. It is said that this would only be approved by the manufacturer up to 100Wp power. How do you see that?

b) the supply via the existing 12V sockets is not critical with regard to the cable cross-section of the VW T6 California Beach?

 

Mirko Held, SOLARA:

Hello Mr. Degener-Koziol,

The charge controller can do a little more than 6V, which is also the maximum that comes from the solar panel, so that is not a problem. So far, we have sold countless solar systems in the past few years and there have been no complaints about this and most of the photovoltaic systems are used in vehicles like your camper.

In my opinion, the cable cross-section is not critical, since much more than 6A can also be taken from there. It is only necessary to check in advance whether the corresponding cabling has been changed or is still in its original condition.

 

Martin Degener-Koziol:

Hello Mr. Held,

so now I could finally attach the Power Mobile solar panel. Wonderful, eyelets are already attached - was not easy, but it fits. 

My question: What about using it in the rain? I am away for the weekend and will sleep in the bus. The Power Mobil solar panel is located on the roof of the camper and is attached to the C-rails. A thunderstorm threatens today. I assume that this should not matter to the solar panel and the plug on the panel (splash-proof). Correct? I like the module very much in terms of quality.

 

Mirko Held, SOLARA:

Dear Mr. Degener-Koziol,

Thank you for the positive feedback. You can be easily leave the solar panel outside, it is fully suitable for sea salt water, so no problem.

 

Martin Degener-Koziol,

thank you for the feedback. That was how I understood the information on your homepage. Attached is a photo from the weekend that you are welcome to use.

Kind regards Martin Degener-Koziol
