Our new PowerDrive solar panels are designed to make your electric cart more productive. Constructed from the latest thin-film technology, these solar chargers are a simple and cost effective way to make your carts "greener". Complete kit with charge controller and cables. What can adding solar do for your electric cart? Put the cart at night-charged. Run all day without plugging in. Significantly reduce the costs associated with charging electric vehicles less time required can equal as much as $1.00 - $2.00 per day for some. Solar modules reduce the depth of discharge which can increase the number of charging cycles and extend battery life. Possible Tax credit $$ for electric carts utilizing solar power. Features:
No Brackets-"Peel and Stick" Butyl Backer No Holes to Drill Lightweight Weatherproof Flexible and Durable No Glass to Break Installs in Minutes-No adjustments Low Profile Efficient Operation in Low Light Panel Wattage: 36watts Amps: 2.4 @ 15V Rated Voltage: 15.4v (Controller converts to 48V) Size:26.25 x 51.30 In typical use, a golf cart battery is discharged to twenty percent of capacity (80% discharge). In this usage, batteries will need replacement after 520 charge cycles or 1 3/8 years. Use of a PowerFilm solar panel reduces depth of discharge to no lower than 65%. This extends battery lifetime to 730 charge cycles, a gain of almost 69%. In most cases, through typical cart use, the battery discharge will be in the 30-50%, equaling a gain of more than double in battery life. In one test case, battery discharge depth was limited to 10% of the battery capacity. Battery lifetime for this battery could be extended to up to 5000 charge cycles. Options: complete kit comes with charge controller and all cables.
