Why doesn't my solar panel reach its rated 160W? When a solar panel is actually being used, it is normal that the actual power does not reach the rated power. Below are factors that will cause the power to be lower than the rated power and how to fix them. The strength of the sunlight. The strength of the sun's rays will cause the output power to fluctuate.
While it may be relatively close to the tested conditions at noon on a clear day, it may be less in the morning or afternoon. Weather conditions will affect the light conditions, and hazy, cloudy, or rainy weather will cause the actual power to be much less than the rated power.
The surface temperature of the solar panel will affect the power performance of the solar panel. The lower the surface temperature, the better the power performance. For example, the power of the solar panel in the winter will be higher than in the summer, which is normal. In summer, solar panels are exposed to light at a temperature close to 60°C; even if the light is better, the power will be 13% lower than the rated power. The angle of the sun's rays.In good lighting, the solar panel can be perpendicular to the sunlight for better performance. A 10-degree difference between the light and the 90-degree angle of the panel has little effect on the power. When the solar panel is in use, try not to have anything covering the surface, including shadows, foreign objects, glass interferences, and even dust. The EcoFlow 160W Solar Panel is portable and foldable, making it ideal for camping, hiking, and outdoor adventures.
The solar panel folds into a compact size for transportation, and can be unfolded and set up easily. The EcoFlow 160W Solar Panel can be paired with an EcoFlow power station to take advantage of the advanced MPPT solar charge controller, which detects current and voltage in real time. This provides the best solar power performance, even when environmental conditions change. The adjustable kickstand enables you to position the solar panel in any direction or orientation.
This design feature ensures that you can connect and position multiple panels together without making them overlap, which provides more efficient solar panel charging. The universal MC4 connector is compatible with other products on the market, and it enables you to connect multiple EcoFlow 160W Solar Panels together with the EFDELTA for more efficient solar power generation.
Whether you are camping, hiking, or going on a road trip, the EcoFlow 160W Solar Panel has got your back. Our waterproof solar panel is designed for the great outdoors, also featuring an 0.2mm ETFE film that protects the surface from ultraviolet light and prolongs the life of the product. The solar panel has designated ports to insert the suction cups, providing a safe and reliable way to mount the device. 16.5 × 26.8 × 1.0 in.61.8 × 26.8 × 1.0 in. 15.4 lb (Solar Panel 11 lb). 21.4V (Vmp 18.2V).
