Solar is a great alternative.
The 5W solar panel is a handy piece of equipment. It generates electricity for smaller appliances. We can use it for various minor off-grid applications.
Acopower manufactures this 5W Monocrystalline Solar Panel.
It is for smaller 12 volts off-grid battery charging.
You can use it for many different smaller off-grid applications.
This is a 12-volt Monocrystalline solar panel to use for
The size of the panel is 12.6 X 6.3 X 1.0 inches (320 X 160
The manufacturing of the panel takes place in the United States.
The panel comes prewired to a rear-mounted junction box that is IP65 rated. It has power wiring pigtails that they attach to the junction box.
The attached pigtails are 1M (39 inches) long.
It is necessary to buy mounting Z brackets and a charge controller.
If there is a need Acopower can manufacture customized cables.

Basic component for off-grid solar panel 12/24v/36/48v system;
Small household lighting system;
Portable solar power;
All small power electrical devices & small PV systems.
The 5w Monocrystalline module is for small 12-volt battery charging and more. It is ready to supply cheap electricity.
You can direct it to the sun and it will be in operation.
The panel produces DC voltage. To use it for residential
purposes you need a charge controller. It acts as a voltage regulator. This is
to protect the batteries against overloading and surges.
Remember MPPT charge controllers are a bit more expensive,
but they are still the best.
If the sun shines 6 hours per day you will get 6 x 5 = 30
watts per day.
This is only meant for small appliances.
Some people feel it will be better if the manufacturer includes mounting hardware.
The solar panel itself comes with a 5-year workmanship warranty. Also a 25-year 85% output warranty.
Customer service and technical support based in California.
The 5w solar panel is very handy. It is solid and well-constructed.
The panels come with a very good warranty.
It is cost-effective and efficient.
The module delivers the rated voltage and current.
