How Flexi PV Solar Panels work
Put simply, the solar panel charges a 12V battery* (protected from being
overcharged by a Charge Controller**) during daylight hours. The power in the
battery is available for use at any time to power appliances – directly if powering
12V appliances or through an inverter†† if powering 240V appliances. The system
will work even in overcast weather conditions, both in summer and winter.
*Battery not supplied
**Charge Controller available separately, or as standard with an ‘MA’ part numbered kit, or any Roof/Decktop Kit
† No Charge controller required so long as battery is bigger than 70Ah for the 10W panel
†† Inverter available separately
