Having a 160w fixed solar panel is best when you don’t need to move it around, but rather have a need for good reliable power at one specific location. These can be mounted on buildings, or on the top of a suitable vehicle. When placed onto a vehicle it can be used to generate power as you’re driving, or you can park in a good location and won’t need to be concerned about the solar panel being in the way. Ideally these are best when combined with a suitable lithium battery and with these working together, they can provide you with enough power to run most camping equipment, or even a few power tools.
Having a solar system set up at your regular camping site can make the holiday all the more enjoyable as you’ll have access to many of the creature comforts that we’re all used to in the home environment. Even if you’re only needing to power a few lights the 160w fixed solar panel can provide you with trouble free power, that is as simple as parking your vehicle in a sunny position. Fixing the solar panels to the roof of your car, can be a reasonably easy task, provided you have the correct mounting equipment. In addition to vehicles, these can also be fitted to caravans, and any other object that has a sturdy flat roof. These all come fully assembled out of the box, and require minimal set up.
Is a 160w fixed solar panel useful?
There are many uses for a 160w fixed solar panel, you can use it to get power to one of the outbuildings on your property, or it can be attached to your car to charge up batteries so you can have power at a later time. Generally, with solar panels the wattage displayed is how much power they can generate in an hour of quality sunlight. Therefore, a 160w solar panel will produce 160w of power in an hour. While the amount and intensity of daylight will vary at different times of the year, and your location, you can expect about seven hours a day of good energy producing sunlight. In a 12v system and using a 160w solar panel that generates 1120w in the day, you can get about 93Ah of power in a day, or enough to recharge a 100 Ah lithium battery. Naturally the exact amount of power you require at any one location will depend on what you’d like to run during the day or night.
