For overland travellers, campers and 4x4 enthusiasts
Whether you want to try before you buy, or simply prefer this cheaper alternative, you may wish to rent a unit.
The solar panel kits are supplied with a mounting frame, mainly for protection, but can also be used to strap the panel to a roofrack. Also included is a solar regulator (If you require it), extension cable (15m) cabling and connectors; everything you will need to simply connect the panel to your vehicle, making the kits suitable for the general overland traveller.
