The PS180A has monocrystalline panels, which efficiently convert sunlight into energy and is an ideal size for campers and tourers who like to get away from the grid for longer periods of time. This panel has a 12V 20A heavy duty regulator, and adjustable feet to make it easy to get the best angle for the sun.
It also comes with a 5m lead with alligator clips and Anderson plug connector, a battery temperature sensor to prevent overcharging, and a carry bag for protection while you’re in transit.

Can I use this to charge a lithium battery via its regulated input or is it only suited to AGM/Deep cell batteries?1 answer
I'm using a Nomad PDU V5 lithium battery pack.

It took a bit of digging to get this information, however Dometic specified that the solar regulator on these panels is only compatible with Lead Acid, AGM and Gel batteries. If you're wanting to charge a Lithium Battery you'd need a solar controller compatible with Lithium Battery Packs.

CAN THIS BE OPERATED WITH & WITHOUT THE REGULATOR. VAN HAS A BUILT IN REGULATOR BUT THE SECOND BATTERY IN THE CAR DOES NOT.
TERRY - St George(5 years ago)
I've called Dometic to confirm that you can use this panel both with and without the regulator. On the van you can bypass the regulator and connect the short ends of the positive and negative terminals to whichever cable you have as an input for your van. You could then detach this and connect it to your vehicle via the regulator. It's not really set up for plug and play though so that would be something to consider.

Where is the regulator attached? Is it David rectory on the back of the panel or attached to the frame?

I've just double checked out display model of the 120W panel and the regulator is attached to the back of the panel. We're confident this is the same on the 180W panel.

does this deliver up to 180 watts. like constantly or over an hour1 answer
does this deliver enough power to keep a fridge running.

The Dometic Portable 180W Solar Panel will only deliver 180W in perfect conditions, if its cloudy or there's shade, it won't work to its full capacity. It should be more than enough to run a fridge but keep in mind that you'll need a battery in between the solar panel to maintain proper power to your fridge.
