A 30 watt solar panel to be rigid and strong 

30 Watt Solar Panel30 Watt Solar Panel.

The 30 watt solar panel is a high-performer.  NewPowa is the distributer of  the rigid and strong panels.

It is called the NEWPOWA 30 Watt 12V Mono module. 

The panel does not come with mounting brackets. You have to buy compatible mounting brackets extra.

You can buy (NPB-UM, NPB-35P, NPB-50P.)

You do need a charge controller to control the charge and discharge.

Also if you want to power an AC load, you need an inverter.

This is to change the DC power into AC power which is 110 or 220 volts.

The 30 watt solar panel watt solar panel comes with a pair of 3 feet solar cables with Anderson connectors attached to a junction box.

Back of panelBack of panel.

They pre-attach the cable to the junction box. Also an extra 1-foot cable with Anderson connector attached to it.

The 30 watt solar panel is a high-efficiency module and is a black color.

They encapsulate thehigh-performance cells in EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate).

It's available in thin sheets. They insert the sheets between the cells. Also between panel and top surface, and between panel and surface at the back.

Frames are of heavy-duty anodized aluminum, providing high-quality panel rigidity.

Utilize panels for many years without faults, defects, or any operating failures.

The 30 watt solar panel has a warranty for up to 25 years.

In mid-summer, and on a sunny day with 7 hours of sunlight one  can get an output of  180 watts.

You have 7 x 30 watt = 210 watts.

Take in to account a 15% and it will be 210 X 85/100 = 178.5 Watts.

Now you can round it and you will get 180 watt.

The 30-watt solar panel is best for low-amp systems. It is good for bringing power to small electronics away from the grid.

  • The panel is very well made and it comes ready to use. It is sturdy, attractive, and efficient.
  • The module charges in cloudy and lower light conditions.
  • The rugged design can withstand gale force winds (2400Pa), also heavy hail and snow loads (5400Pa).
  • They encapsulate the cells in EVA (ethylene-vinyl-acetate).

  • It comes with high transparent and  low iron tempered glass.
Anderson ConnectorAnderson Connector.
  • The solar module comes with a durable TPT back sheet for heat dissipation. That ensures better panel performance and an increased lifespan.

  • The pre-attached 3ft+1ft wire with Anderson connectors makes the 30-watt solar panel ready to use.

Disadvantage of the 30 watt solar panel

Some people want the initial power cord to be a bit longer.

To Mention

  • The solar panel is easy to move throughout the day for the best solar collection.

  • A good idea is to build a frame to mount the charger to keep the angle of sun exposure at most.

  • The module comes with fast shipping and packed in a sturdy box.

  • This is a quality built panel, with flawless joints in the aluminum frame. Also, a neatly coiled wire attached to the junction box.


The module has a two year limited workmanship as well as material warranty.

Also ten years 90% output warranty and a 25 years with 80% output warranty.

To conclude

This Newpowa 30 watt solar panel performs flawlessly.

If you buy it you will have a good investment ensuring cheap electricity.
