【Full System Protection】 The Wanderer PWM Charge Controller has built-in protection to safeguard your systems, such as reverse polarity protection, battery overcharging protection, overload protection, and short circuit protection.
【Ready to Install】 This Renogy Solar Kit includes the equipment necessary for building a new system. The necessary cables, Z-brackets, Solar Y Branch Connectors and pre-drilled holes on the back frame of the panel allow fast and secure mounting.

 

The Renogy 400W Solar Starter Kit is easy for you to install, and it is the most economical choice for solar beginners. This Renogy Solar Kit includes the equipment necessary for building a new system: a solar panel, a charge controller, needed electrical wiring, Solar Y Branch Connectors and Z-brackets, making it an ideal choice for both off-grid and mobile solar power applications.

This Starter Kit will produce an average of 2kWh of electricity per day (Based on 5 hours of direct sunlight conditions). The 100W solar panel doesn't take up much roof space, but its energy can offset small and medium-size loads such as lighting, television, and coffee maker.

The Starter Kit can build a reliable and environmentally friendly power supply, perfect for RVs, campers, boats, sheds, and cabins. It can also be installed as a power supply for outdoor appliances and emergencies, and as a stand-alone power system.

Efficient Performance

The bypass diode can ensure the panel has an excellent performance in a low-light environment and the TPT back sheet dissipates excess heat to ensure smooth output performance. The Cell Efficiency can reach 22%.

Smart 4-stage Charging

The Wanderer PWM charge controller features advanced 4-stage charging (bulk, boost, float, and equalization) to ensure your battery is efficiently and safely charged to 100%.

Powerful Compatibility

The Wanderer PWM Charge Controller is compatible with four different types of batteries: Sealed, Gel, Flooded, and Lithium batteries. Connecting the BT-1 Bluetooth module to the RS232 communication port, you can monitor the system status in real-time through the DC Home app.

Please note the BT1 Bluetooth Module is not included.

Solid Quality

The corrosion-resistant aluminum frame with strong corner braces is designed for long-term outdoor use, giving the panels a long service life.

No Fear of Weather Challenge

The IP65 Junction Box protects against environmental particles and low-pressure water jets. These IP67 waterproof solar connectors ensure that the water and dust will not enter the connector during extended outdoor use. Effectively preventing water from seeping in.

Ready to Install

This Renogy Solar Kit includes the equipment necessary for building a new system. The necessary cables, Z-brackets, Solar Y Branch Connectors and pre-drilled holes on the back frame of the panel allow fast and secure mounting.

1. What do I need to complete my off-grid solar power system ?
 

A solar panel has to be connected to a charge controller to regulate current, and a battery to store the electrical power. You will need adapter kit cables to wire the solar panel(s) and charge controller, and tray cables connecting the charge controller to a deep-cycle battery.

2. What does off-grid and on-grid mean ?
 
On-grid simply means solar power equipment (array or solar panel) is connected to the electrical grid, while off-grid refers to systems that are not connected to the grid and therefore store the generated power for later use. Off-grid systems are not affected by grid blackouts.
3. Why is my solar panel under producing ?
 
Solar panel performance may be hindered for a number of reasons. Most commonly environmental conditions such as indirect sunlight, temperature rise, cloudy sky, and dirt and stain build up on the top glass will cause a reduced power output.
4. How should I connect solar panels in my electrical circuit (series vs parallel)?
 
Solar panels can be connected in series or in parallel to meet your electrical circuit size and power demand. Connecting solar panels in series will have the effect of adding up their operating voltage output, while system current output will be the same as that for one panel. While, connecting solar panels in parallel will have a different effect; individual panels operating current output will add up to be the system output current, while system output voltage will be the same as the output voltage of one solar panel. To meet the optimum power output and system rating for your power system, you can use both parallel and series connections.
5. How many solar panels do I need ?
 
The best way to gauge how many solar panels you need, is to understand and define the power load needed from this system. Power is measured in Watts, and capacity is commonly measured in Watt-hours (multiplying power output in watts by the required number of hours of operation multiplied by a safety factor of 1.5-2). Therefore, it is wise to size your battery bank first based on the minimum required capacity, and accordingly decide how many panels or how much power input is needed.
