Product Description

Here at KICKASS® we have studied the solar panels available on the Australian market and used this research to develop the ultimate portable solar panel. There are some solar panels on the market that are cheap and nasty but we have developed this panel to the highest standard.

KICKASS® Panels come fully regulated so they will never overcharge your batteries and are delivered ready to go; simply open, plug in, and collect free power from the sun!

 

So what is the difference you may ask? A 5-Year Warranty and a 30-day money back guarantee!*

 

The Solar Cells

  • True A-Grade Monocrystalline Solar Cells deliver high solar efficiency with excellent heat tolerance and a small footprint, giving you the greatest possible power output.

  • Solar Cells come with a full Australian Backed 25-Year Warranty

 

Solar Controller / Regulator

  • One of the major advantages of KICKASS® Panels is the fact that they are waterproof, including the in-built regulator. This means you do not need to bring your panel in when it looks like it is going to rain.

  • Battery Status & Charge Indication indicates the charge status of your battery in real time.  

  • The regulator can be set to charge your exact battery type with Wet, AGM, Calcium and Gel settings. This not only charges your battery in the quickest and most efficient way possible but also extends the life span of the battery by preventing harmful overcharging.

 

Cables

  • KICKASS® use super heavy duty twin core double insulated cable to minimise voltage drop.

  • To keep the setup neat and tidy, the cabling between each panel has been designed to fit through each frame on their way to the regulator which means there is nothing to clip together making setup a breeze.

 

Frame & Structure

  • The panels are encased in a corrosion-resistant aluminium frame with stainless steel fittings; this will not rust and will stay in great condition for many years to come.

  • Unique to KICKASS® Panels is a specially designed nylon strap. This strap secures the legs in place, preventing them from falling over, adding that extra bit of stability required  on hard surfaces.

  • Protective plastic corners avoid damage in transit and also help prevent the panels slipping on hard surfaces. If these chip/crack in the transit process, that means they have done their job and we will be happy to replace them for you.

  • Rubber protective patches are positioned on the back of the panel to prevent the legs from damaging the sensitive rear of the solar cells when the panels are folded. (On cheap panels, the continuous knocking of the legs against the rear of the solar cells destroys panels)

  • The absolute toughest solar panel carry bag available, anywhere! When folded, the panels easily slide into the KICKASS® Extra Heavy Duty Carry Bag, which has been designed with tough YKK zips, durable vinyl and the strongest stitching available. An accessory pocket is also fitted to store all the included leads and cables.

 

What Is In The Package?

  • 5 Metres of double insulated twin core cabling is included with a 50 Amp heavy-duty Anderson connector.

  • 1 Folding Solar Panel pre-wired and ready to go.

  • 1 Anderson to Alligator Clips Adapter is included to connect directly to your battery terminals.

  • 1 Anderson to Male Cigarette Lighter Plug Adapter

  • 1 Extra Heavy duty reinforced dust-proof vinyl carry bag with accessory pocket.

  • 1 Operational Manual

*Please note: The PWM Regulator included offers a 12 Month Warranty ONLY and is excluded from the 5 Year Warranty.

Installation Guide
Unpacking and setting up your panel:

1.     Kickass Solar Panels are essentially plug and play.

2.     Remove your panel from the carry bag.

3.     Unclip the latches that hold the panel closed then fold out the legs (adjusting the nylon leg strap to achieve desired angle).

4.     Place your panel on a reasonably flat surface facing towards the sun.


Connecting the panel to your 12V batteries:
 
Included with your panel is a small bag with a 5m connecting cable and a range of adaptors.

1.     Connect the 5m connecting cable to the solar regulator, which you will find fitted the the leg of the panel.

         (the connecting cable is complete with an Anderson plug which is a common 12V connection)

2.     If the Anderson plug is not suitable for your application, you can attach either the included Alligator Clip Adaptor or Male                        Cigarette Lighter Plug Adapter to the Anderson plug on the end of the connecting cable.

3.     Once you have selected the desired connection type, go ahead and connect the panel to your battery.


Please note: You cannot run appliances directly from the solar panel. It must be connected to a 12v Battery to operate.

100W Solar panels

23 May 2018
After renovating a retro caravan we decided to put a battery system, some led lights and a solar charger into the mix. Reviewing products until my head hurt, I settled on the Kickass 100W panel kit. Arriving about a week after ordering, I opened the package gingerly, hoping I had made the right choice. Usually haunted by some sort of disappointment by poor quality I was expecting the worst as I opened the bag they came in. Surprised by the quality of the bag and latch, I was pleased to see that they were quite solid and well made. The pre-fitted cable was heavy gauge and neatly attached to the Anderson plugs and was plenty long enough for what I wanted. Even the manual was in proper English and easy to follow, even for an amateur such as myself. I am pleased I chose the Kickass panels and would have no hassles recommending them.

Just into Darwin from camping out near Adelaide River using the solar panel for the first time. Very impressed - everything worked well and it was easy to read and use the instructions. I must admit I did have one thought when packing up - and that a very slight (and economical) improvement might be to use a zip tie plastic bag for the fittings that is a double type closure and easier to fasten.

100 Watt Solar Panel

26 April 2016
We ordered the 100 Watt Solar panel 5 days before our trip away and realistically didn't expect to receive it before we left. The panels were shipped to Central NSW and arrived using standard shipping on the 5th day prior to us leaving. We used the panel for a week and was greatly impressed with its performance and its high quality design and build. These guys really did put effort and pride into this product. The only minor improvement I could suggest would be for longer legs to allow the panel to be more upright in the morning and afternoon creating a better and more productive angle to the sun. I placed a 100mm block under the legs and this increased the output of the panel during these periods. The legs were long enough during the middle of the day and the panel preformed as advertised. The extra length in the legs I think would also be beneficial later on in Winter as the sun sinks further in the North.Their videos on their products are great and provide information on things to consider prior to purchasing. The information assists in comparing other manufactures products. These panels are more expansive than others on the market but you get what you pay for.

Well this has been the best purchase to date, used the panel over Easter directly hooked up the van or ark pack and pushed so much power back to the unit, clearly easy to use, was everything they described and comparing to my mates clearly showed the quality build, thanks once again

Kickass 100w solar panel

12 March 2016
As the name suggests these guys kickass, the panel is better than the others I looked I at from the big name brands in the stores. And for the price and assistance offered by them, I wouldn't go anywhere else. I sent off an enquiry late on a Sunday night and had a reply with in an hour, asked what would be a suitable panel for my set up and they gave me the best options that would suit. The bigger brands weren't able to provide that level of service, let alone be that helpful as they usually refered me to the manuals. Quality videos on line demonstrating the products on offer, well worth a view to see what you are getting when buying from Australian Direct. The most in depth and real life reviews, (Deep Cycle Battery Maintenance video is a must), compared to the ads of other brands. There was one thing when my panel arrived, the bag had some frayed material down the side forming a hole, contacted Australian Direct to let them know, with pictures of the bag. Reply with in a few hours and theyre sending out a replacement bag, no questions asked. When dealing with other companies they have tried to get around product fault and put it back on the customer. Australian Direct apologised for the fray in the bag, these things can happen so I was Fine with that, and they organised to have new bag sent out. Kickass products and Kickass service.
