About This Product

The Renogy 400W 12V Premium Kit is easy for you to install, and it is the most economical choice for the off-grid adventurer. Renogy Solar Kit comes with solar panels, charge controllers, and needed electrical wiring, fuses, and monitoring typically required for an off-grid installation, making it an ideal choice for both off-grid and mobile solar power applications. The Premium Kit will produce an average of 1.6-2.5kWh of electricity per day (depending on sun availability). The 4 x 100W solar panels don't take up much roof space, but the energy they produce can offset small and medium-size loads such as lighting, television, and kitchen appliances. The Premium Kit can build a reliable and environmentally friendly power supply, perfect for all rooftops, RVs, boats, or campers. It can also be installed in a ground mount system, as a power supply for outdoor appliances, emergencies, and a stand-alone power system.

Highlights

  • 【Efficient Performance】 The Premium Kit will produce an average of 1.6-2.5kWh of electricity per day (depending on sun availability). By bypassing the shaded cells with poor performance, the bypass diode minimizes the power drop caused by the shadow to ensure excellent performance in a low-light environment.
  • 【Solid Quality】 Advanced encapsulation material with multi-layered sheet laminations to protect cells from physical damage or distortion, improving cell performance and providing a long service life. Corrosion-resistant aluminum frame ideal for outdoor use. TPT back sheet dissipates excess heat, ensuring smooth output performance. EL tested; 5-year material and workmanship warranty.
  • [Bluetooth module] 4-Stage Battery charging process for a rapid, efficient, and safe battery charging areas-232 Port compatible for extra features compatible with Renogy Bluetooth module and Renogy DC HOME app for remote monitoring.

Q:Would this work for 110V hot tub
by|Jun 8, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Good day, Summer2024! Thanks for reaching out. To recommend an inverter and battery bank for your hot tub, we'll need some more information: Wattage requirement of your hot tub Typical daily hot tub usage duration Power requirements and usage duration of other appliances you plan to use with the solar grid system This information will help us determine your total load requirements and size the system appropriately. We can't provide specific system sizing without knowing your load. I hope this clarifies things!

    Q:What is the efficiency rating of these panels?
    by|Mar 24, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Good day, Mark! Thank you for reaching out to us! As for this question, if you are looking for the efficiency of the solar panels themselves it has a Cell efficiency of 22% which pertains to the ability of the solar panel to convert sunlight into electricity which is the watt rating of this solar panel (100w each). As for charging efficiency, the one that handles that is the Solar charge controller which has a 90-95% efficiency rate. So under optimal circumstances, you will get 90-95% of 400w of charging power to the batteries. I hope this answers your question!

      Q:Would this be able to power a 1500 watt heater in my well house?
      by|Mar 24, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Good day, Bobby! Thank you for reaching out to us! As for this question, the way to determine if a Solar charging system can power an appliance/device is through system sizing. System sizing is a process to help you determine which and how many solar components you need to power a specific load over a specific period of time. You can ask for system sizing assistance with our Sales team either through our Chat System on the Renogy Website or by giving us a call at (909) 287-7111. Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon!

        Q:Is this expandable, can I add more panels?
        by|Mar 3, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Good day, Mateog! Thank you for reaching out to us! As for this concern, We can add another panel to the 400w kit since the charge controller can handle up to 525w of PV power at 12v and if you have a 24v battery system it should be able to handle 1050w. For further inquiries, you can contact us at our Chat Support team on our website or our Tech support team at (909) 287-7111. Thank you and take care!

          Easy installation and works as intended.
          I installed this 400 watt rated system two weeks ago. The panels are on the pilot house roof of my powerboat connected in series. I installed the supplied 10A fuse. The Rover MPPT charge controller is in the engine room. The system charges a 260 AH flooded lead acid battery bank. I also have a Renogy battery monitor. The system is intended to allow full time operation of an undercounter refrigerator while the boat is on it’s mooring. The system is operating as intended. The battery monitor indicates 100% battery capacity by early afternoon even on fully overcast days. I am very happy.

            Great Kit!!! Need option for longer wires
            Such a great starter kit. Arrived perfect! Panels are doing great, actually pulled 415 watts on my rv yesterday with the panels angled at the correct degree to the south. Charge controller is awesome and all wires and hookups work great. Two things to note: the charge controller on the app will read out what the controller is converting at that moment for your batteries current needs. Can be confusing to think you’re only getting 2 amps when you have 79 volts and 200-300 watts - but it’s likely because your batteries are charged and it’s just sending all that is needed. Second, if you have a 5th wheel or longer trailer, the PV wires from the panels to the controller WILL NOT be long enough. I order 40ft and it was perfect. Prob about 6-8 ft left over. Wish that was an optional upgrade at checkout.

            Great kit!! Everything you need.
            I don't usually write reviews, but I figured I would in this case: The main reason I purchased this kit is because you can actually call Renogy, and they actually have someone to answer the phone who is eager to answer questions and assist in tech advise. To me, that's huge! Anyways, I installed this 3 years ago for my off-grid tiny beach house in Mexico. It has functioned perfectly and is holding up great. The only maintenance I've performed is just cleaning the panels. This system is small, but perfect for a low voltage setup (like tiny home or RV) - my home is all 12v, with a small inverter for light AC needs. The kit was easy to install, and came with everything I needed. I fabricated a simple rack for the panels (see pic). For batteries, and purchased 4 "VMAX" 6V (225Ah) AGM Deep Cycle Batteries from Amazon (connected them in series and parallel - see pic). I couldn't be happier with this system - Thanks Renogy.

              Great Solar Battery backup system
              Great Product. Support was awesome to talk to to figure out a few items. I use it for a Solar Battery backup system if I lose power to run my mini fridge, sump pump and freezer. I added 2 - 200AH 12 volt AGM Batteries and a 2000 watt inverter. I think they should sell as a package, but everybody's needs are different I guess. The only thing I would recommend is that people use a watt meter for (over time) calculations. you really need to do the math on what your appliances use and over time what your needs are.

              Great system and easy to set up
              Great system so far, for my first time solar panels, and for the amount of sun I get they seem to crank out a good amount of power.

              great product!
              I purchased this 400 watt premium kit a month ago. I had a 200 watt 20 amp beginners set in my cargo trailer,(toy hauler build) for two years and not one problem! The items where easy install. I'm running my upright freezer and battery chargers and all is well to date. I also installed a 2000 watt Renogy inverter and it is operating as well as the solar system. The only glitch, was the remote control with my inverter not working. but Renogy said they would replace? waiting to hear from them, hope the manufacturing defective replacement side is as good as the product?

                So easy!
                We wanted a simple but effective energy system and decided on the Renogy 400w premium solar kit and (for now) one Renogy Smart Lithium Battery (will be adding two more soon). This system is easy to connect with instant results! The Blue Tooth module and the Renogy app is so user friendly and informative! This is our first solar system but thumbs up to Renogy!
