The 30 w solar panel to do low amp charging 

30 W Solar Panel30 W Solar Panel.

This 30 w solar panel does smaller battery charging and various off-grid functions. RICH SOLAR distributes these rigid and strong solar modules. 

They call it the RICH SOLAR 30 W 12 Volt Polycrystalline PV Module. It is a High-Efficiency Polycrystalline solar panel.

The package does not include a charge controller or mounting hardware.

It has an  efficiency of 13.4%.

It has an IP65 Rated waterproof junction box. Also a pair of 12AWG cables. attached to the solar module. The cabling is 24 inches long. 

They build it with high-quality tempered glass and it comes with a strong aluminum frame. That provides for high-quality panel rigidity.

One can use these solar panels for many years. You will experience no faults, defects, or operating failures.

It comes with a superb warranty for up to twenty five years.

On a sunny day with 7 hours of sunlight in mid-summer, you can bargain for the generation of about 178 Watt.

That is 7 x 30 w = 210 Watt.

Now you allow for a loss of 15% and you get 210 X 85/100 = 178, 5 Watt

Ignore the 0, 5 and you get a fair 178 Watts.

With this, it is possible to charge a car battery, but it will go to slow. Better use it for low ampere systems or trickle charging a car battery.

Corrosion-Resistant Aluminum FrameCorrosion-Resistant Aluminum Frame.

The  Aluminum Frame is Corrosion-Resistant

The aluminum frame is sturdy and protects the solar panel from high winds and heavy loads. 

While manufacturing they drill holes in the frame for ease of installation. 

The panels come with high transmission coated glass that is anti-reflective and tempered.

It has certification to withstand difficult environmental conditions.

To mention some advantages

  • The 30 w solar panel has a 13.4% efficiency, as well as superb performance during low light conditions. It operates well during cloudy days with a satisfactory output.
IP65 rated waterproof junction box with built-in diodes and 24-inch cableIP65 rated waterproof junction box with built-in diodes and 24-inch cable.
  • The waterproof junction box is IP65 rated, and the MC4 connectors are IP67 rated.

  • The panels are easy to install and to handle  for many different applications.

  • It is easy to use with  with on the grid and off the grid inverters.

  • The panels are aesthetically easy on the eye. They do not draw unnecessary attention.

  • The leads on the modules are good solid and ready to use.

  • The 30 w solar modules are worth the cost per watt.

  • The modules are modular compact and easy to set up. It still produces sufficient power.

The not so goods of the 30 w solar panel

The panels do not have mounting hardware.

You also have to buy a separate charge controller for battery charging.

Worth Mentioning

Beware any small shade that can hit the solar panel. The impact is always negative.


The 30 w solar panel has a  five year of materials and workmanship guarantee.

Also twenty five year  eighty percent output power.

To conclude

The RICHSOLAR 30 w solar panel Polycrystalline Module is a good choice.

It can provide the type of performance that people require for a specific situation.
