Junction box and pair of 90 cm long cables.

The manufacturer encapsulates the cells in EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate).

They make use of  an anodized aluminum framework that are long lasting.

The 5 w solar panel has a 20 years warranty.

On a sunny day in summer time the module can produce 60 watts with ease.

The 10 w solar panel is handy to bring power to small electronics while off the grid.

  • The 10 w solar panel is cost-effective. Acopower  provides free professional after sale services.

  •  Instructions to set up are easy to follow.
Sturdy frame with pre-drilled holes.Sturdy frame.
  • The 10 w panel withstands strong wind and heavy loads of snow and hail. 

  • Framing is anodized aluminum, strong and mounting is easy, because of pre-drilled holes.

  • The glass is anti- reflective The coated glass is anti-reflective, 3. 2mm thick and with a waterproof display.
  • Also the junction box comes IP-65 rated.

  • The panels work satisfactory clouds block the sun occasionally. 

  • The leads are good and solid and to be used at any time.

Disadvantages of the 10 w solar panel

A downside is that there's no mounting hardware. It would be good to include an option with mounting brackets at a higher price.

To Mention

  • There is not a blocking diode on the panel, but when using a charge controller you will not need one.

  • If you decide to lay the panel on a flat surface you have to drill a small hole through the side lip. This is to pass the cable through. Use an RTV to protect the cable and stop water from passing through.

  • For 10 watts, it's a very compact panel

  • This 10 w solar panel is of good quality and sturdy construction.

Remember the following;

If you charge a battery, you need a charge controller.

If you run your fan or led light, you need both battery and charge controller.

If you want to charge an ACOPower portable solar generator you do not need a charge controller.

  • Testing the panel on a clear sunny day should produce 19 to 22 volt dc. Always confirm positive to positive and negative to negative.

  • The ends of the wires from the panel to the regulator are bare. That is good for larger regulators with set screws. For a smaller regulator you need SAE connectors. This will need a small modification to get the panel into operation.


The 10 w solar panel has a 5 year workshop and 20 years output warranty.

In a conclusion

The 10 w solar panel is small and sturdy and worth the money.
