This 40W solar panel is not fitted with a blocking diode as in most cases a panel of this size will be used with a solar charge controller. Please contact us if you are not sure what you require.
Do I need a solar charge controller / solar regulator?
It is possible for solar panels to damage a battery through overcharging in some circumstances. Power can also flow back from the battery to the solar panel at night.
With a 40W solar panel in most cases you should use a solar charge controller (solar regulator). The Solsum 6.6F is ideal as it is simple robust and good value.
