Solar Panels for Bait Boat

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am trying to get a solar panel for my bait boat (lake reaper).  The manufacturers don't sell one but I have looked at the foldable one for a procat (??) at £150.

 

I can buy 2 x 10w/12v panels from ebay at £40 in total and hinge them together (a couple of quid from B&Q).

 

What I need is some views/assistance on the how to "chain" them together electrically....... does 2x10w = a 20w charge and 24v?? How do I solder them etc

 

Any help greatly appreciated!!

If you get 2× 10w 12v and need to get 24v, you need to wire the 2 panels in series. There should be a black (-ve) and red (+ve) wire. The black on one panel needs to be connected to the red on the other. The other 2 leads should give you 24v at 20w.
