PV Logic FLEXi 20 Watt Solar Panel Kit – Solar Technology
From the 5 Watt to the 120 Watt Solar Panel kit, PV Logic FLEXi is well suited for use where a super robust, low profile and also lightweight panel is needed. Especially if the surface to which the panel will be fixed has a slight curve. Charge boat batteries with ease.
We stock the 20W panels with as well as without the optional 10amp Charge Controller. Other units of power are also available to order. We also stock the portable 4w charging panel.

Self-healing top surface
The ETFE top layer gives the PV Logic Flexi extra resilience in really tough conditions. The ETFE memory effect allows any slight abrasions to ‘heal’ within a few hours. You can walk on the Flexi range with soft deck shoes! The dimpling of the ETFE adds Panel protection and anti-slip surface. Fitted to a boat deck this is useful.
Assembled to ensure complete encapsulation. This ensures the 6 layer heavy duty laminate protects the solar cell circuit from extreme conditions. Injected with special silicon, The junction box guarantees no water ingress.
Cells protected from hot spots.
Where used on a camper van or boat, partial shading of a solar panel is typical. In these circumstances, heat build-up and damaging hot spots can occur leading to a significantly reduced life cycle of the panel. The larger 60w and 80w PV Logic Flexi panels have up to two shading diodes housed within the fully waterproof junction box to prevent this occurrence.
There are no square edges on a PV Logic Flexi! Rounded panel corners and a unique curved junction box provide superior adhesion, no snag lamination and no sharp edges. The junction box is mechanically fixed in addition to being bonded to the panel. Strain relief is provided for the fitted 4m UV stabilised PV cable ensuring it cannot be accidentally pulled from the junction box.
The Flexi range can be bonded to flat or slight curved surfaces (3cm curve per metre). The aluminium layer is also pre-drilled with 4.5mm holes should the panel need to be mechanically fixed as well as or instead of bonding.
The Flexi range is setting new standards with a 5 year product and a 20 year performance warranty*.
*Cell performance warranty states that at 20 years the cell output will be no less than 80% of new performance values – i.e the cell degradation rate will be no greater than 20% in 20 years.
