There is also the option to go for two panels giving you 200Watts of solar power.
A bolt on, drill free kit for VW T5 and T6 vans
The complete kit is only £399. The kit comprises of: 1x 100w ultra-thin solar panel mounted on the T5/T6 specific frame (You must have the VW T5/T6 roof rail slots fitted on your van) , 1 x 10 amp LCD Display solar charger regulator, all cables, connectors, fuses, nuts and bolts and a printed step by step installation guide.
Bolt on kit for Mazda Bongo & Ford Freda
The Bongo kit comprises of: 1x 100w solar panel, 1 x 10 amp LCD Display solar charger regulator, all brackets, bolts, cables, connectors, fuses, and a printed installation manual.
Select which roof type you have (Most AFT roofs are the standard style. Newer Bongos have an obvious raised bump at the rear of the roof (as in the photo above) - these require slightly different bracket dimensions). You can also select to upgrade the standard charger to an MPPT charger - see the MPPT page for detailed descriptions.
DIY solar panel installation - installed in 15 minutes. No drilling, No electrical knowledge required, Everything in the kit that you will need. If you are happy to drill a small hole in the AFT roof (which is very easy) then you can easily hide the cable
Whichever installation method you use, the panel can be quickly unplugged, unscrewed, and removed for storage, though it's fine to stay on the roof permanently - it's designed to!
The kit comes with everything you need to install it. The panel is pre-edged with a rubberised beading for roof protection and a slip-free installation, plus you get the fixings, brackets, cables, connectors, and a colour printed installation guide which includes a hole cutting template for the MPPT remote LCD panel should you buy the upgrade.
If you just want to plug in and go then you just run the pre-made cables along the guttering of the bongo and into the bonnet by the passenger wiper. When you have more time you can install the cable under the interior panels - it's a simple case of popping the bottoms off and tucking the wire behind.
The kit includes an advanced solar charger regulator with a built in display which can cycle through several modes. This tells you your battery voltage, and, very interestingly, how much solar power your panel is generating at any given time! (plus you can query your total cumulative solar power figures). A flat panel version of this kit is available too. It's the same as the VW kit, but with a specifically sized flat panel that fits the Bongo AFT (and all aftermarket roofs) - please contact us to check we have the right flat panel in stock.
