Can you walk on these panels? Can you put the monocrystaline and polycrystalline in parallel and use the same charge controller? Both panels are Rick Solar if that makes a difference.
Pls do not walk on any flexible solar panels pls do not bend too much angel, pls do not put much heavy items on the flexible solar panels. You can connect mono and poly in parallel, any brand is no problem, but pls make sure they are all 18volt. Thank you!
I purchased 2 panels and have received them, the smooth ones no microdots, they will be mounted on my sailboat on the Maine coast. I would like to know if there is a proper way to add additional mounting holes and grommets to the perimeter, to avoid damage or shorten lifespan.
We suggest not make any addtional mounting holes and grommets, thank you!
Hello, can these panels be hooked in parallel?
Yes, it can be hooked in parallel. Thank you!
My RSF100M panel just arrived today. Does this panel utilize the microdots to increase conversion efficiency at off axis angles? the surface appears to be smooth- and I cannot see any micro-dots? The Amazon description for this panel indicates that this model includes this feature, along with ETFE coating- neither of which are mentioned above on this page?
Thank you for shopping with us. This solar panel coated ETFE made in Japan that is the latest technology. It is smooth than before, but the efficiency increase 15%, because this microdots is very small, it will get more power when it is working. There is some pictures that you have seen on the amazon from the other sellers that their ETFE made in China, it is poor materials, and they do not have this technology to make it more smooth. Thank you!
Are these etfe or pte and what is the difference between these and your more expensive 100 watt panels?
Hi, this model is ETFE coated, the solar cells is traditional monocrystalline solar cells, the expensive one with SUNPOWER solar cells. That is the difference. The power is all 100 watt.
