How does the 120 Watt solar panel work?

 The ECO-WORTHY 120 watt 12volt foldable Monocrystalline Solar Panel generates cheap electricity. 

Open the solar suitcase and direct it to the sun. 

Connect the appliance to the load terminal of the connector. 

Connect the male weather pack connector with alligator clips. Connect it to the female weather pack connector from the controller. 

Clamp red and black alligator clips to positive and negative ends of the battery. 

Remember first to connect the battery to the load and then connect to the solar panel to prevent damage due to overload.

The Charge Controller

  • It utilizes  waterproof IP22 design.
  • It provides protection against insertion of fingers.
  • Automatic  detection of 12 and 24V system.
  • PWM   charging is available. It uses 3-stage charging algorithm; impulse, bulk, and float.
  • The controller provides reverse battery pole connection protection as well as lightning protection.
  • It comes with an adjustable timer and light sensor.

15A PWM Charge Controller Specs:

Nominal output: 12V/24V 

Max charge current: 15A 

Max load current: 15A 

Max solar panel: 270Watt/540Watt 

Over discharge protection: 10.8V/21.6V

Reset: 12V/24V 

Float charge: 13.8V/27.6V 

Advantages associated with the 120 watt solar panel

  • The 120 watt solar panel kit serves as a very good plug and play system. It is lightweight and easy to use and it comes at a good price.
  • It still charges when it is overcast or the sun is behind the trees.
  • The charge controller comes pre-wired for 12V battery charging.
  • With the given wires and crocodile clips it is possible to connect to a battery in seconds.
  • The suitcase is resistant to salt corrosion and humidity and it is available in 4 color options.
  • The module provides high conversion efficiency. It composes of a multi-crystal solar cell with an efficiency of over 17%. It produces a  dollar/watt ratio much more than satisfactory.
  • The system folds up. It makes handling easy and it is easy to store. The solar suitcase does not take a lot of space.
  • It has a heavy duty handle which gives a firm grip and carrying the panel is a breeze. Without the handle, it would be very difficult to carry around, and would hardly be a solar briefcase.
  • The panel comes with a lightweight anodized aluminum frame. It is corrosion-resistant and meant for outdoor use. The panels can last for decades.
  • The quality of construction is very good.
  • It withstands high winds up to 2400Pa and snow loads up to 5400 Pa.
  • The panel comes with reinforced safety and anti-reflection coated glass which is 3.2 mm thick.
  • The adjustable kickstand allows you to adjust to the angle of the sun. This ensures largest output throughout the day.
  • The system uses a waterproof IP-65 rated junction box.
  • The junction box is water and dust proof. It is also resistant to salt corrosion and humidity.

Maintenance

The module requires little maintenance.  It is a good idea to use warm water and a soft sponge or cloth to clean your panel at regular intervals. 

You will ensure efficiency at a constant high level.

Disadvantages

  • The legs are flimsy, but reinforcing is possible at low cost and little effort.
  • Some people want the cords that attach the batteries to be a bit longer. 
  • A type of covering for battery clips to prevent a short circuit when they touch would be a good idea. 
  • The briefcase folds with the cells on the outside. It leaves them exposed to possible scratching or damage when not in use. 
  • When folding take care not to damage the wires exposed underneath the legs. 
  • The set up is easy, but some people would like clearer documentation.

To mention

Great and fast shipping! 

It is a good idea to buy or use an old soft blanket to cover the PV when not in use.

In a conclusion

The 120 watt solar panel is a good quality module and produces the required voltage and current. 

This is a great charger for the money spent.
