Solar Panels

Many Bongo owners have decided to fit solar panels, or use portable panels, to keep their leisure batteries charged during the periods when they are not running the engine, or when they have no mains hookup available.

If you contact or use any of these services, after seeing them here, please mention Bongo Buddy.

This London based company seems to have a number of options and I’ve read some good product reviews on Amazon: Photonic Universe.

Another company is Solar Camper Solutions – as recommended by Bongo owner, Geoff Mather – who points out that good quality panel cells, a proper Maximum Power Point Transfer (MPPT) Controller, and correct roof attachment, are very important.
