The BSP1012 solar panel puts out 600 milliamps of DC power during peak solar hours. This panel should be used with a controller, as it is large enough to overcharge batteries without one. 10 watts of solar can be used for maintenance of 12 volt batteries up to about 250 amp hours of capacity and replace small energy consumption, such as an alarm system, LED lights, or small electronic devices. This is an aluminum framed, commercial grade solar panel for long term exterior use, and has 15 feet of UV resistant cable permanently attached.Click image for larger picture, "Back" button to return

This 10 watt panel is used for battery maintenance and recharging small solar systems where the current draw is small (2 to 3 amps total in a day). A solar controller such as the Morningstar SunSaver 6 should be used with this panel, or any solar panel over 5 watts output. We use this panel in 12 volt applications or series two panels for 24 volt applications in RVs, boats, or similar setups with a small current drain. Automatic gate openers are another excellent application for the BSP10-12 10 watt solar panel, where intermittent use of the gate is the norm.
