Lightweight and powerful solar panels built to last.
Our high-quality 170w fixed solar panels will fit neatly on the roof of a 4wd, caravan, camper trailer or boat. Being only 17mm high, they are aerodynamic and weigh about 30% less than regular 30mm high fixed panels.
The A-grade monocrystalline solar cells are protected by 3.2mm tempered low-iron glass, which is optically clear and provides high impact resistance against hail, stones and accidental knocks. The all-black frame, cells and substrate look incredible on any vehicle.
The panels come with a 0.8m cable terminated with industry-standard MC4 connectors, which are waterproof and will not come apart once connected. We have also developed matching mounting brackets to make it easy to fix your panels in place.
With a 10 year warranty backed by Hardkorr’s reputation for quality, you can’t go wrong with these solar panels. Start powering your adventure from the sun for free today!

This is the best panel on the market in its size. The thin style is the best as it fits nicely on our vehicle and is not as visible as the thicker types on the market. Unit functions well and keeps our 120 amp hr lithium battery running a 65 litre fridge charged without problem.

Panel looks great and fits well but cannot get more than about 110W out of it (it’s very consistent though but peaks at 9am in the morning and never goes higher). Not sure if this is normal but would of expected a bit more. Using high quality Victron MPPT solar charge controller so unsure if panel is faulty or this just is the max it does?
Martin Firle (verified owner) –
Really happy with the solar panel. Had it charging our 100ah battery no worries.
Rob Mutton –
Absolutely awesome panel runs 60 litre fridge 24/7 with 120 ah lithium battery previously used blankets this makes life so simple!
Ben (verified owner) –
Great panel, been installed on rhino rack for over a year now, was putting out 171w(12.5 amps) this morning when not hot, once hot it still pumps 135w (9.5amps) . Couldn’t be happier l.

Love the product, currently on my way back from a cape trip after 3 weeks, have had no problems whatsoever. Cheers

Fits perfect on my ARB rack nice low profile and so far it’s been up to 8amps output runs my 95 litre fridge with ease at the moment ….the brackets are well made easy to fit
Hans Andersen –
Great unit, very easy install on the roof rack of my cruiser. Nice low profile and the brackets fit perfectly

Have ordered your panel and mounting kit, reading these reviews why are the holes having to be drilled out to use kit, hope this is not the case when I go to fit mine otherwise everybody seems happy with an excellent product.
Performs great, looks great in black on the black rhino cross bars. Unfortunately the bolts in the HardKorr solar mounting kit are too big to fit through the pre-drilled holes in the panel so, I had to drill out the mounting holes. Would understand if I bought a different brand solar mounting kit, but some poor QA and one department not talking to another.

These 170w solars panels are excellent quality with excellent output as one would expect from Hardkorr and at a excellent price with a 10 year warranty
I couldn’t be happier . I have installed 1 on the roof of my 4WD and 2 on my Caravan and the low profile of these panels is another bonus

Looks great, works very well, even in low/obstructed light. Lost marks for the fact the plastic corners all fell off immediately and it had the wrong size holes drilled for the bracket kit.
Mark O’Malley (verified owner) –
Put 2 in parallel through 148ah battery am running 2x 12v fridges, fan, and lights have not needed power backup yet. Panels are super thin black looks shmikk. Would recommend.
I bought this panel to replace a cheap eBay one that was drawing too much open circuit voltage for the DCDC charge to handle so it was erroring out. This panel looks heaps better, far better quality and has been working away error free since I installed it 6 weeks ago. When charging off solar the battery is sitting at around 14.1v. This one is much lighter and the black frame looks mint!
Josh knight –
Awesome panel, light weight and produces consistently even in overcast conditions. Maintains my 48hr lithium battery via an mppt controller running Ute fridge and canopy lights no problem.
Highly recommend, service was quick and professional.
Ian Bucknall –
fantastic product and Amazing customer service and support, thank you for the great product. Ian
This solar panel is crazy good for the price. Its costs a little bit more than they ebay no name ones but boy does it perform. My DC Charger hit 14.3 volts as soon as i plugged this in, not on of my cheaper solar panels has managed to get the voltage this high. Even in overcast conditions im still getting 2A. Highly recommend. Installation was easy with brackets but like previous review you do need to drill a extra couple holes due to it not lining up with roof racks, but easy to do.

I got this solar panel to feed my HardKorr Lithium battery & box.
Mounting it to roof racks was easy with their mounting brackets, just needed a couple of extra location holes to suit rack spacing.
It keeps battery charged via my dcdc, so it’s always ready when it needs to be used.
The low profile reduces weight & wind resistance.
Just ask them about connection extension leads available, before you buy panel.
You Won’t Regret Your Purchase.
