In the beginning, solar panels were not in many types and there were very limited industries for their manufacturing but then things changed and people find out the benefits of solar systems. People started to understand their importance. The manufacturers kept trying to find out about the inventions and updates, which can be, change these panels and make them more efficient and helpful. They knew that people love to go for camping and traveling. They also know that technology have made these things easy for people, they have mobile phones, and other gadgets to contact people when they get lost in forests or something bad happen. The only problem now people face during their adventures is the lack of power sources. People do not get any source to charge their gadgets. Therefore, manufacturer starts working on the idea of providing power source to those people so that they can charge their gadgets and have lights. Therefore, they made flexible solar panels.
These panels are being made with very thin layers of silicon so they can bend and fold. These panels are also lightweight to so they can be easily installed on places, which bear heavy weight and their lightweight also make it easier for people to carry them wherever they want. These panels can be folded and pack in bags or bag packs. These panels are best for people who are going to areas, which are out of civil societies for social services and other purposes. These are best for boats, caravans, cabins, and RVS. These panels can be used on flawless roof tops of the houses.
Some flexible panels have limitation when it comes to their flexibility and other can be bending completely. So when you are purchasing these panels always keep in mind the purpose for which you are buying, So that you can choose the right type of panels. Cells of the panels do not bend themselves but they have other bending material in their gapes, which make the cells to bend too. To purchase panels, which have high flexibility power, it is best to go for panels, which are being made by alminium frames. These panel needs to be bent to adjust to the surface.
There are different methods to stick these panels in the surface but using glue is the easiest way to do that. The bad thing about this method is that it limits the circulation of the air around the panel and because of the panel cools down easily.
Amorphous silicon solar cells can have longer life but because of the polymer frame, these panels damage easily and live shorter than expected. Flexible solar panels for boats and other vehicles are very famous and have many benefits. These panels are being used to charge marine batteries. Different companies are giving different warranties. There are two kinds of warranties performance warranty and product warranty but the performance warranty will useless if the product will stop working. These panels are best source of power when people are camping in deep forests.
