385W solar panel kit

Our solar panel kits include everything you need to connect a solar array to your electrical system. All cabling, fuses, cable lugs, etc. are included, as well as a number of optional extras to enhance the system.

This kit includes a 385W solar panel. This is a monocrystalline solar panel with a Voc of 47.9V and an Isc of 9.75A. This higher Voc will make charging on cloudy days or during winter much more viable. Find out more on our solar panel guidebook page.

The 100/30 charge controller is suitable for the supplied solar panels. You can pick from the SmartSolar or the BlueSolar (non-smart) version.

The DC cable gauge is specced on the distance between the charge controller and your busbars being no longer than 1.5m each way (3m ‘there and back again’ length). If your charge controller will be further away than this, please contact us so we can provide a system proposal with the correct cable gauge.

We include a PV isolator switch in every kit. This allows you to easily isolate the subsystem from the rest of your electrical system.

We include a Scanstrut horizontal double-entry cable seal with each kit. Scanstrut make rugged and weatherproof entry glands which provide a sealed and secure entry point into your van for the solar panel cables.

We use Victron solar cable to connect the solar panels to the charge controller. Select the distance between your solar panels and charge controller, and we will supply a cable twice as long. This is then cut in half to create 2x cables with an MC4 connector at one end and wire at the other end.

Select from either glued or screwed solar panel brackets, and we’ll include the correct quantity for the solar panels in the kit. If you select screwed brackets, we’ll include well nuts to form a watertight connection. The well nut included is an M5 well nut, provided with a rubber washer and a BZP 25mm allan bolt.

Wiring diagram & installation guidance

All of our kits are supplied with a subsystem wiring diagram and installation guidance. This includes information on setting up the charge controller correctly using the rotary switch and the VictronConnect app (if a SmartSolar charge controller is selected). So, you can install your system easily and be confident it’s installed correctly. If you need any support during the installation, contact us and we can provide additional support.

385W solar array – use case

A 385W solar array is suitable for a medium-sized off-grid electrical system, such as in a campervan with medium power usage. For example, a 385W solar array would fully recharge a 250Ah AGM battery bank (2 x 125Ah batteries) from 20%-100% in ~10 hours on a sunny summer’s day.
