Product Overview

Meet the Renogy 175W Flexible Solar Panel - the culmination of cutting-edge technology and precision. This ultra-lightweight panel can achieve up to an incredible 248-degree arc of flexibility thanks to advanced solar cell technology and lamination techniques. At 6.2 pounds, this panel weighs 70% less than its standard counterpart and is less than 5% as thick. This makes it easy to transport, install, and affixed to uneven surfaces. It's precisely this kind of adaptability that makes the Renogy 175W Flexible Solar Panel the ideal choice for airstreams, campers, and boats. Mounting Recommendation: Modules must be mounted using silicone structural adhesive on the backside of the panel, grommets are only to be used for non-mobile applications. For detailed installation methods, please consult a local contractor for guidance.
  • 【Extremely Flexible】With a flex range of up to 248 degrees, this panel is capable of meeting a wide range of applications where standard panels can be inconvenient to mount, such as on the curved roof of an airstream
  • 【Ultra Lightweight】Thanks to advanced polymer materials, this product weighs 70% less than conventional solar panels, making transportation and installation a breeze
  • 【Super Thin Lamination】Discreet and thin, the Renogy 175W Lightweight Panel is only a tenth of an inch thick. Approximately 95% thinner than its rigid counterpart, this panel is ideal for a stealthy solar setup
  • 【Highly Durable】Rigorously tested, the 175W panel is designed to withstand extreme wind of up to 2400Pa and snow loads of up to 5400Pa

Is this adequate for our Rpod rv to run air conditioner? It requires min. of 20 amps we prefer ...

Asked by weloverpod July 8, 2020

Answer

Hello, Thank you for reaching out and your interest in Renogy. Unfortunately, this solar panel would not be enough to keep up with the consumption of your Air Conditioner. Please keep in mind that if you will be powering A/C loads it is important to take the rated watts of each load and divide it by the operational voltage of your battery bank. For example, a 200-watt A/C load divided by 12-volts equals an hourly amperage consumption of 16-17 amps per hour. You can now take the amperage consumption (16-17 amps) and multiply it by your load's approximate runtime and this will equal the necessary amount of amp hours. 17 amps multiplied by a runtime of 2 hours equals 34 amp-hours. Please contact us if you have any follow up questions, have a wonderful day,

Asked by jay June 25, 2020

Answer

Hello Jay, We would recommend an MPPT charge controller, if you plan to expand your solar system, it would be best to consider a 30-amp or 40-amp MPPT charge controller. The 40-amp charge controller, will be able to accept up to 520-watts while maintaining a 12-volt battery bank.

Can I wire this panel straight to my batteries?

Asked by Dan April 27, 2020
1
Answer

Hello Dan, We would not recommend connecting a solar panel directly to a battery. We always recommend considering a Renogy charge controller to ensure your batteries are maintained at the appropriate parameters. Please contact us with any other questions, have a wonderful day.

could i put this on my window

Asked by jif April 17, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for the question! While you could put the panel in the window be aware that most home windows will have polarizing layers to block most of the UV and non visible spectrum light that the panel needs to produce power. It would produce but at a reduced capacity. To get the best production from the panel it would need unobstructed access to sunlight. Thank you, M.S.

Can this be used to charge ecoflow power station

Asked by christine March 7, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for the question! If the Ecoflow station has its own charge controller and can handle 100w then it should be able to be used with the Ecoflow station. If you have any further questions please let us know. Thank you, M.S.

Hello, can you connect 100w and 50w panels in parallel or they will not work properly together?

Asked by Steve November 6, 2019
1
Answer

Hello, You may connect solar panels of different rated values together, however, there is a chance of experiencing some power loss. Parallel connections are advised when connecting 100-watt and 50-watt panels together. Please contact us with any other questions, have a wonderful day.

This is a high-quality 50 watt monocrystalline solar panel that is nicely assembled with tempered glass inside a durable aluminum frame and a thick layer of caulking to ensure waterproof. It comes with cabled wire MC4 connectors coming out of the IP65 junction box on the back for quick and easy hookup. The frame features drainage holes at each corner and is pre-drilled for various mounts as well as slots for z-brackets making installation on flat surfaces a breeze. The panel weights just under 9 pounds and is capable of putting out up to 20 volts and 3.4 amps. I confirmed the output with my multimeter outside on a sunny day and was able to get an output of 20.41 volts and 3.2 amps, so quite impressed such a compact panel. I plan to hinge two of these panels together to make a 100 watt suitcase system for my travel trailer, running 20 feet of cable wire with MC4 connectors to the existing charge controller, allowing the panels to be in the sun while our trailer is parked in the shade. I have other Renogy panels which are holding up great and still harvesting energy like day one, so I expect no less from this panel. It comes with a 1-year material & workmanship warranty and a 25-year output warranty, not sure if other solar panel manufacture stands behind their panels like Renogy, they are #1 in my opinion.

This 50 Watt Renogy Solar Panel works incredible. It is a lightweight flexible unit that can be mounted easily. It has two junction boxes attached to the front edge that measures about 1" x 1" x 3.25" with wires already installed using MC4 weatherproof connectors. Another pair of these connectors will be needed in order to attach this panel to your charge controller and battery. I have attached a picture of the label from the actual panel that gives all of the specifications. I initially tested it using a digital charge controller and my fully charged camper battery. The panel performed as specified, with over 20 open circuit volts, and easily brought my battery up 15.3 volts while charging in about 5 minutes. At that time the panel volts was at 15.8 volts. My controller registered 3 amps output. Realistically it was most likely at the rated 2.71 listed amps. Like many solar panels, if it is shaded at all, the amp rating drops off substantially. Just putting a hand over it reduced the output by 2/3's. I am extremely satisfied with how this panel operates, and would definitely recommend it to others.

Power leads
Great looking panel wish the power leads were equal in length. Still in the middle of my install. But so far happy

Nuff said
Very nice, easy to stow and deploy, nicely efficient. I'm using for overlanding in a 2dr Jeep Rubicon, it stows nicely inside the ceiling curving down at the rear hatch. Fits inside a teton xxl sleeping bag for protection off road. This lightens my solar system by 20lbs and increases my current set up by 75 watts. Mppt controller makes it much more efficient. Awesome.

175W Solar Panel is worth the money!
Received panel in great condition. During autumn sunlight in LA area right now, panel is producing expected power output as compared to other solar panels I have. I expect full 175W production once sun gets higher in the sky next summer! Very well made product. I would definitely buy another one in the future.
