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.
     

*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 the included Alligator Clip Adaptor 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.

150 watt Solar Panels

27 December 2018
Having looked around a great deal at solar panels I decided on the Kickass 150 watt panel. It arrived in good time (I'm in WA). A very good price for a quality product. There was a small item missing (Anderson to Cigarette adaptor) I contacted Kickass and they immediately posted the item to me no fuss and it arrived in a few days

Great Product

12 December 2018
I received my 150 Watt foldable panels today, unboxed it and plugged into my Kick Ass battery box with DC-DC charger, set the mode as described in the instructions, and it started charging straight away. How goods that? On packing it away I was again simply amazed that the panels fit snugly inside the carry bag, it’s the only bit of camping equipment I have that actually fits back into it’s bag. After watching the tutorials, I checked other solar panels at other camping outlets, the Kick Ass panels were around 40-50% cheaper, but the build quality was 100% more sturdy. Thanks for such a good product.

very impressed

3 September 2016
Was thinking of purchasing the 2 panel 100W but very glad I went the bigger unit. Recent 4 day camp saw it charging batteries for electric boat motors as well as keeping a 120amp AGM fully charged as it ran an Engel 47lt fridge and charged night lights and mobile phones. Did the job easy. Panels are very tough and can handle nosey cattle! Folds easily and goes back into the carry bag no problems. Very fast to set up and take down. A pleasure to use.
