How Long Do Flexible Solar Panels Last?
While most of the solar panels are usually as durable as about 20 years, the flexible solar panels tend to last for around 5 years. It means the work efficiency will decline after 5 years.
The thinner silicon , the less durable the flexible solar panels in the long run. To meet the bendable feature, the flexible solar panels are usually very thin. In result, the life span of flexible solar panels are not much longer.
What is The Best Flexible Solar Panels?
The working efficiency is the most important factor for solar panels. A good flexible solar panels usually come with high working efficiency (energy conversation rate). The efficiency of the solar panels with modern technology is between 19%-22%.
The maximum curve degree is a special factor for flexible solar panels. If the bent degree is larger than the maximum curve degree, some flexible solar panels may be destroyed.
Lighted weighted solar panels is easy to carry and it is convenient to move when go out with a RV.
The solar panels with practical design is user friendly. It usually comes with pre-drilled holes on panels for fast mounting and securing.
Safe protection is one of the factor that affect the life span of the solar panels.The best flexible solar panels are usually equipped with short circuit and surge protection technology. In addition, the sealed and waterproof junction box ensure the solar panels work longer.
The plastic film is another protection to avoid the damage if the solar panels fell down.
