The Blue Apple Mono crystalline portable 180 watt Tri fold solar panel is made with the highest quality A – grade silicon cells and come with a full 25 year performance warranty and 10 year structural warranty.
Mono crystalline panels make for fantastic portable panels due to the all rounded efficiency with all levels of light, working extremely well in areas of high light and even maintaining a fantastic output in low light or overcast conditions.
The 180 watt Tri fold has the ability to harness up to 11+ Amps per hour (with an average output of 9+ Amps)
This neat design consists of 3 x 60 watt panels hinged together; two panels fold inwards (glass facing one another) and one panel faces out.
Once folded, the panel can slide straight into the provided carry bag, allowing for easy transport.
Portable panels can allow the user to harness up to a massive 12 hours of sunlight a day (depending on your location and the time of the year).
This means that the 180 watt Tri fold panel CAN produce up to a massive 100+ Amps per day!
The 180 watt Tri fold panel would allow the user to continuously keep up with the draw of a 110Lt compressor type fridge plus more (when combined with approx a 80 Ah battery).
The input power of a portable panel is largely dependent on the user of the panel.
Keep in mind that if like your late mornings and you do not put your panel in the sun until the afternoon, you may need to consider a larger panel to compensate for the time you would miss in the mornings.
Every Blue Apple panel is fitted with diode protection, eliminating the chance for the solar cells to rob power from one another when in the shade. The diode protection will also eliminate any chance of power being robbed from the batteries at night.
The 165 watt Trifold panel is fitted with DUAL Anderson plugs for Regulated charging with the GSL Electronics 12V 12Amp PWM regulator or a new feature the Non Regulated Output Anderson.
This Non Regulated Anderson output is for DC-DC / MPPT chargers which are commonly fitted to most late model vehicles.
Each panel is equipped with its own set of heavy duty anodized aluminium legs which can be adjusted to allow the panel to sit at any angle allowing for optimum performance to be achieved. At the bottom of each aluminium leg there are rubber feet fitted which will prevent the panel from slipping on smooth surfaces.
