Efficient, lightweight, compact with a rugged design– there’s not much else you can ask from the Roman Solar Panel 120W Kit. for taking with you camping, 4WD’ing, caravanning, boating and other outdoor activities - the RomanSolar Panel 120W Kit will charge all types of DC batteries.
With six 20-watt panels that have six Sunpower cells per panel, built on a corrosion resistant copper backing – this unit is solidly and carefully built for maximum efficiency. Featuring Sunpower C60 cells which produce 30% more power than conventional type solar cells currently available, and an uninterrupted surface to absorb more sunlight than conventional cells – this solar kit performs at a high level.
This unit has an LCD screen that’ll display all the info you’ll need, and a heavy-duty outer material and rubber protection on each corner ensure it holds up to harsh conditions. With a quarter of the weight and space of a standard folding solar panel, this lightweight power option isn’t going to weigh down the back of your vehicle on the road.
Simply a great product which teams up well with the Roman/Primus portable battery pack. It is quality is high, the instruction manual is detailed and thorough. I liked the robust Anderson connector plugs which stay put rather than coming easily undone. There are pockets for all cords so it packs up nicely with everything onboard.
The solar controller box is detailed with lights which tell you what is going on with the charging of the portable battery and how full the portable battery is.
I bought some big plastic pegs to act as supports behind it and in front of it, 6 are enough.
Nick at Snowys gave me a heads up that solar mats do not like hot surfaces, so not on car bonnets, roofs, windscreens. Thanks for the tip Nick!
To provide some real world experience on how I used this camping recently....I used it with a Waeco CFX-28 fridge/freezer esky on 30-35C. days with a Roman portable battery pack. The time of year was March in NSW and I put the solar mat in the sun at 9am and around 2:30pm it had recharged the battery.
Very impressed with dealing with Snowys. Delivery was as promised. The panels themselves work really well, better than the solar panels I had before.
Are these really sunpower C60 cells? I ask as I'm use to seeing Sunpower C60 cells without the tabbing on the front of the cells. I'm guessing this must be an older cell and not the 'Maxeon' ones?
Just to be safe, I gave Roman's importer a buzz to confirm for you. They told me that the Roman Portable 120W Solar Mat Kit does still use Sunpower C60 Cells.
The Roman Portable 120W Solar Mat Kit can deliver up to 122.4W of power and the Yeti 400 can only handle up to 120W of power input. Provided that the power coming from the solar panel doesn't quite reach its maximum, then you should be fine.
So could you please tell me where we could purchase a 24 volt kit??
We unfortunately, don't sell any 24-volt solar panel kits. From my understanding, they aren't very common and require a bit of set up. Most people I have spoken to who have transformed Toyota Coaster buses or similar have made modifications to install an additional battery to run as a separate or dual system which they then run their 12 volt solar panels from.
Either way - I'd recommend in your circumstance that you speak with a solar specialist such as Redarc about your options. They are much better placed to provide professional advice on these electrical related plans.
We have a Toyota coaster camper bus running on 24 volts. Would this panel still work?
The Primus Portable 120W Solar Mat Kit can only operate on 12v, so you won't be able to connect it to your 24v battery in your Toyota Coaster.
