Product Overview

Grape Solar 100-Watt monocrystalline Photo Flex panels utilize advanced technology back contact monocrystalline cells laminated into a flexible plastic sheet. The result is a panel far more rugged than the traditional glass and aluminum modules with the twice the efficiency (approximately 20%) of flexible thin film panels. The plastic back sheet can be curved up to a 15° 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
  • Designed for off-grid use only

Customer Questions & Answers

If used with a suitable MPPT controller are the bypass diodes required to prevent draining the batteries?

If not then is it possible to remove the bypass diodes to increase current to batteries? How much current to the diodes draw?
Asked by: Simon
A MPPT controller is a Dc to Dc converter that runs at high efficiency. If you drop 0.6V across a diode but the voltage output of the panel is still, say 17VDC, the DC/DC will still be charging the battery at the same amount during the best full sun hours. I doubt the diodes really affect a day of power into your battery too much. If you really want to know how much, I would call someone like Morningstar, and get their engineering department to tell you what they think. My opinion is do not remove them.

Hi, Are these solar panel walkable ?

I am planning to mount this on my boat. Can I walk on this solar panel ? will it break the solar cell ?
Asked by: James
Although not highly recommended, you can walk on this panel providing it is sitting on a solid surface.

Is this panel made up using Sunpower's Maxeon cells?

'Sunpower' high efficiency solar cells are flexible and have no contact lines on top of cells! These look just like them, is this panel made with Sunpower's cells?
Asked by: CoolJoe
Yes the cells included in the PhotoFlex are Sunpower cells.

I can not recommend panels, best get glass covered panels that last 25+ years, fer same or less money! You might get three years life out of the 'flexable'. And by the way never actually flex panel! This are intended for light weight use only!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's life expectancy is only 2 years I purchased this panel it stopped working after two years and I was told by the company that this panel life expectancy is two years and refused to do anything for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product by grape solar is amazing. light weight, and very easy to handle. take it to camp. keep it home. RV... go green and be happy this product has done wonders for my family out to camp. this back up power has been convienent and an exception for any trip we take. its light, its tough, and ballanced for anything that needs power for quick charge and a quick set up.
