Renogy 100 Watt Flexible Monocrystalline Solar Panel – RNG-100DB-H-UK
Traditional solar panels are rigid. The Renogy 100W flexible solar panel is capable of flexing up to 248 degrees, so it can easily be installed on curved surfaces, making it perfect for boats and campervans. The Renogy 100W flexible solar panel is lightweight and thin, weighing only a quarter of its traditional rigid counterpart.
This Renogy 100W flexible solar panel is monocrystalline, which means that each solar PV cell is made of a single silicon crystal. Monocrystalline solar panels are more efficient than polycrystalline solar panels, so you will get a higher solar yield from your panels.
Renogy 100W solar panel – use cases
The Renogy 100W solar panels are suitable for off-grid applications such as campervans and boats. Flexible solar panels are super thin, making them perfect for stealth campervan setups.
When used in a campervan setting, we would recommend a minimum solar array of 200W. This will ensure that you are able to generate enough solar power even in winter or cloudier days. An open circuit voltage of 15V or higher is required to charge your system, so we would recommend wiring your solar panels in series to achieve a higher total system voltage.
Solar panel mounting options
Flexible solar panels must be mounted using silicone structural adhesive on the backside of the panel. Grommets should only to be used for non-mobile applications.
Solar charge controllers
Once you’ve decided on the size of your solar array, make sure you find the correct solar charge controller! You can calculate your maximum open circuit voltage by adding together the voltages of each of your panels (if wired in series). Your maximum open circuit current will remain the same (when wired in series). Victron charge controllers are sized based on these 2 numbers – e.g. the 100/30 charge controller is suitable for an open circuit voltage up to 100V and an open circuit current up to 30A.

Products that give back
We are members of 1% for the Planet. This means that for every product purchased from Climbingvan, 1% of the total cost will be given to The Honnold Foundation, to provide solar power to underprivileged communities. If you want your electrical system to have more of a positive impact, purchasing your components from us at Climbingvan will mean you can give back as well as powering your off-grid system.
