A 400 Watt Solar Panel that is a high performer. Distribution of the rigid and strong modules is from Renogy.
They call this high-efficiency panel the Renogy 400W Monocrystalline Starter Kit.
This system uses 4 x 100 Watt solar panels to deliver a peak output of up to 400 Watt on a sunny day.
The module comes with an efficiency of 21%.
The four 100w panels take up about a 3ft x 8ft space.
You can connect the four Renogy 100-Watt Monocrystalline solar panels in parallel.
Do it by making use of three pairs of branch connectors. The branch connectors come with the kit.
It has a TPT (Tedlar Polyester Tedlar) back sheet. This ensures smoothness of performance over a long period.
The heavy duty anodized aluminum frames provide for high in quality panel rigidity.
You can enjoy faultless operation for many.
This 400 watt solar panel comes with a very good warranty for as long as twenty five years.
On a sunny day in mid summer, when there is 6 hours of sunlight, the panel can generate 2 Kilowatt power.
This is 6 x 400 watt = 2.4 Kw.
Allow for a losses of about 15%. Now you have 2400 * 85/100 = 2.04 KiloWatt
Throw away 0.04 and you have 2 Kilowatt.
Four Renogy 100W 12 Volt Mono pv Panels.
A 30A Pulse Width Modulation Wanderer Controller.
Twenty ft 10AWG MC four Adaptor.
Eight feet 10AWG Tray Cable
Three pairs branching connectors
Four Z-brackets sets. (Four Z-brackets per set.)
For full operation of the 400 watt solar panel we need a battery , inverter and
It comes with a 30 Amp charge controller.
Divide total watt by volts to size the battery.
This is 400 watt x 6 hours daily sun ( Depending on season and area.) X .85 for loss divide by 12 volt x 2 for D O D.
You get 400 x 6 x .85 / 12 * 2 = 340 Ah.
Use 2 x 200 Ah batteries.
Decide the max watts to utilize and size the inverter.
Max out is 400 watt.
By rule of thumb you will use an inverter one and a quarter to one and a half times more than max requirement.
We use a 400 * 1.5 = 600 watt. A 600 watt inverter is a good choice.
Max Power: 100Watt.
Open-Circuit Volts (Voc): 22.5V.

25 Years output warranty:
Five Years 95 percent efficiency, ten Years 90 percent efficiency and 25 years
eighty % efficiency.
This 400-watt solar panel kit also has a five year material plus workmanship warranty.
Accessories have a one year material warranty.
Use the 400 watt solar panel starter kit for various
off-grid applications such as:
Electric livestock fences;
The starter kit can provides years of quiet power production and grid independence.
You do not have to be troubled about rainy or misty weather. Even under harsh conditions the 400W solar panel will perform well.
This 400 watt solar panel comes with a corrosion-resistant aluminum frame. This is for extended outdoor use.
These are heavy-duty frames
and the panels can last for many years.
The Renogy Wanderer 30A
Negative-Ground Charge Controller works with Pulse Width Modulation.
The current that tapers from the module is determined by the condition of the battery.
Charging continues to ensure for the provision of the most energy in a short period.

Rated Charge Current: 30A.
Max. PV Input Voltage: 25 VDC.
Max. PV Input Power: 400W (12V).
Battery Type Sealed, gel and flooded.
Charge Stage 3.
Grounding Type Negative.
Nominal system voltage 12V DC.
Dimensions 6.5 x 4.3 x 1.8 In.
First you will connect the battery, then the load and lastly the
This ensures safe
operation and it safeguards the equipment against overload.
One should never connect the
solar panel to the controller without a battery.
It is good practice to
install the charge controller indoors to keep it well ventilated, cool and dry.
Keep the controller away from damp.
It is better to install the
charge controller indoors in a well-ventilated, cool, and dry place.
Water must never enter
The kit comes with a 20ft 10AWG MC4 Adaptor Kit. This is to connect the solar panels to the charge controller.
Also, an 8ft 10AWG Tray Cable that connects the charge controller and the battery.
To set it up is quick and easy.
The 400-watt solar module
kit includes 4 sets of Z-brackets.
One set per panel and four Z
shape solar panel brackets per panel.
By using the brackets mounting
becomes easy, safe and secure.
Some people report that the screws in the charge controller are not strong enough. It is the ones that hold the wires from the solar panels.
It would be easier to connect the solar panels via four-way connectors.
The 400 watt solar panel kit
is high quality and the panels are efficient, even on cloudy days.
The charge controller comes
with many useful displays to track everything important.
The complete system is
unbelievable easy to install.
This 400 watt solar panel delivers high output.
This is a well-manufactured solar module.
