Why add a solar panel to your campervan?
Solar panels added to any campervan conversion can increase battery charge effortlessly and in an environmentally friendly way! They add an additional charge to help increase the leisure battery life and keep all installed units charged and ready to go.
What are the pros of adding a solar panel?
They are a quiet and clean source of charge, plus it means you’re not tied down to an electric hook-up at a campsite - more wild camping! (Obviously where allowed!)
The flexibility of being able to go off-grid will give you much more freedom in your choice of holidays and stays!
Can weather impact solar panel performance?
Although here in England the weather can be a bit hit or miss, solar panels will still charge in cloudy weather but at a slower rate. Obviously, the best charge will come from direct sunlight but it’s good to know that, when installed on a roof in the correct position, they can still draw a charge on the less appealing days.
Want more reasons why they’re so good?
Another massive pro to having one installed is how compact and low profile they are with the roof - you wouldn’t know there was one there! They can be installed on all roof types including pop-tops.
They are continuously generating power during the day which means the charge is one less thing to worry about.
As you can see this 130W Semi-flexible Solar Panel is so low profile you can even have a Roof Rack installed with it.
