We have sold over 1 Megawatt (One Million Watts) of used solar panels to happy customers.
These panels are working perfectly. There were installed on a solar farm, half of which was damaged in a hail storm so the insurance company is paying to replace the whole installation with larger 260W panels. These are the panels which were not damaged in the storm, and are all working 100% and only been installed for a few years. The output on these panels is fine, but some of them have a cosmetic issue called "snail trails" where there are some silver trails across the cells. This does not affect their performance, its purely a cosmetic issue and we have tested them to confirm they are fine. As with all used panels there may be some marks or scratchs from where they were installed and they need cleaning, but their performance is great and they are at an absolute bargain price. These panels have been stored outside for a long period, so will need a wipe down when they arrive with you.
These are great for use as 12V solar panels and an extremely popular size. You can use them with either an MPPT or a cheaper PWM controller.
We have a large batch but they will go quickly at this price.
Maximum Power: 175 watts
Maximum Power Voltage: 23 volts
Open Circuit Voltage: 29.3 Voc
Short-circuit Current: 8.29 amps
Please note these panels do not have MC4 connectors on, and some of their connectors have been cut off when they were removed. We would advise that you purchase MC4 connectors to put onto these panels.

What are Snail Trails?
They have no effect on output, they are purely a cosmetic issue, and once on your roof who's going to see! When they were removed from the solar farm they were performing to spec and we have tested them to ensure they are not affected by this cosmetic issue. Below are a couple of photos of what some of the cells may look like.

Delivery is usually 1-2 weeks. You will get a dispatch notice and tracking number when you order as it will be booked into the couriers system.
Delivery from £20
First panel £20, each additional panel £6 delivery i.e 3 panels costs £32 delivery.
Delivery service is an economy service that hand delivers fragile items on a weekly round across the UK.
£15 surcharge for Scotland (please allow 2-3 weeks for Scotland).
This is a safer more reliable and cheaper way for you to receive panels and saves on the huge amounts of wasted packing materials.

Since 1926 Crown Battery has responded to the 'power' challenges and individual needs of industry leaders with the best available products and services in the field of heavy-duty commercial deep cycle batteries.
A company-wide dedication to quality control and continual improvement has earned Crown Battery the highest quality and service rating in the industry. We put more into our deep cycle batteries so you can get more out of them...
More performance, More Productivity with Less Maintenance. Nobody builds them like Crown, because no one else invests in the heaviest, thickest plates in the industry. Ours are over 10% thicker than our competitors.
Combine that with our proprietary PROeye and our low maintenance container - features that make battery maintenance predictable and efficient - and you've got a battery that's going to last longer and perform like no other.
Crown out-performs the competition in head to head tests over and over again.
It must be a matter of perspective. But we aren’t prone to exaggeration, the way some of our competitors are.
If you claim to have batteries that out-perform all others, an independent laboratory should confirm the findings. That’s the way we do it at Crown. Since 1926, that’s all we’ve done. And to us, it really isn’t a matter of claiming to be first in the industrial marketplace. But being the best. Some manufacturers are comfortable making exaggerated claims.
We’re comfortable making battery history… one customer at a time.
The heaviest, thickest plates in the industry. Thicker plates, heavier lead connections, and the most active lead material per ampere hour of rated capacity. And heavy means more lead, more active material. Which means more power. Longer life. Who would you put your money on? A lightweight battery? Or the heavyweight of the world. Crown.

|Storage||Batteries should be stored in a dry and cool area in an upright position.Store batteries on a solid surface that can safely accomodate their weight. Batteries can be safely stocked two or three layers high by using a secure stacking surface placed between each layer. When stacking batteries in layers, take care to secure battery terminals against short-circuit and to block and brace batteries that prevents any movement of the battery group. Please note that batteries need periodic stock rotation and service charging to ensure peak performance.|
