If you are considering installing solar panels for RV, camping or trailer, you can choose flexible solar panels, which are more flexible than rigid solar panels (glass solar panels), and will also be more suitable for RV life. The reason why the RV chooses flexible solar panels instead of glass solar panels is that it drives in potholes.
The main difference between flexible solar panel and glass solar panel is the flexibility of the panel, which is usually bent upward by 30 degrees. Flexible solar panels can be used in a wide range of applications. Flexible panels are very suitable for different installation methods, such as installation on uneven surfaces, which makes them very suitable for recreational vehicles and campervans! The flexible panel is also light, durable and portable. Flexible solar panels also have high light transmittance, which means they can be installed on glass or as windows.
The types of solar panels are divided into three types: monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon and thin film. Polycrystalline solar panels Polycrystalline panels are also made of silicon crystals. However, they are composed of silicon crystal fragments, which will melt together before being cut into wafers. The flexible single crystal solar panel has cells made of silicon wafers. These panels are made of wafers assembled in rows and columns. These panels are cut from a single pure crystalline silicon, which helps them have excellent performance. Thin film solar panels are different from monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar panels. Thin film solar panels are composed of a variety of different materials. The most widely used thin film panel is made of cadmium telluride.
You can choose the flexible solar panel you want according to the price and conversion efficiency.
