The plastic back sheet can be curved up to a 15 Degree arc and mounted on RVs, Boats, Cabins, etc. The ultra-thin design also allows for easy storage and/or transport.

  • Advanced technology back contact cells allow for flexibility and increased wattage per square feet
  • Unique frameless design includes four metal reinforced mounting holes for easy installation
  • Rigorous quality control to meet the highest international standards
  • High transmittance, flexible lamination material is less prone to cracking than traditional glass
  • Outstanding electrical performance under high temperature and weak light environments
  • Positive and negative leads equipped with MC4 connectors
  • 2 bypass diodes minimizes performance drop due to partial shade

If not then is it possible to remove the bypass diodes to increase current to batteries?
How much current to the diodes draw?

Answer: 
These panels have Schottky diodes installed to prevent reverse current flow. Removing them will void the warranty on the panels, and will not increase the amount of current to the batteries. Diodes are designed to have very little voltage drop on their exit side.

I'm surprised that the manuf. warranty is only 2 years. Most panels are anywhere from 10 to 25 years for 90% output. I'm planning to use this on the bimini of my boat. 2 years is a short period. Thanks

The connector is MC4, not 8 mm, and this panel cannot be used with the Yeti 150 - the Yeti has a maximum solar input of 60 watts.

Answer: 
Hi Tent,
Thank you for your interest in the Grape Solar PhotoFlex. The back of a PhotoFlex panel should not get so hot it will catch a tent on fire. However, it is best to mount the panel on surfaces that are exposed to air flow in order to keep the panel cool and producing at maximum efficiency. Awnings, canopy's and Bimini covers are ideal candidates.
