The Starter Kit is great for off-grid applications, such as RVs, trailers, boats, sheds, and cabins — providing many benefits, including, but not limited to, quiet power production and grid independence. Renogy 100W Monocrystalline Starter Kit is designed specifically for customers new to solar. And since you are reading this, I guess you belong to this category. The kit now includes an 8ft 10AWG Tray Cable to connect your charge controller and battery, and the charge controller has been upgraded to Renogy’s new 30A PWM Negative-Ground Charge Controller – the Renogy Wanderer. Ideal output: 500Wh per day; can fully charge a 50Ah battery from 50% in 3 hours (depending on the availability of sunlight). You also have a 25 year transferable power output warranty on the panels.
What’s in the box?
This solar kit comes with the tools necessary for a new system: a Renogy 100W 12V Monocrystalline Solar Panel, a 30A PWM Wanderer Charge Controller, a 20ft 10AWG MC4 Adaptor Kit, an 8ft 10AWG Tray Cable, and a set of Z-brackets. Start your solar adventure with a Renogy Starter Kit.

I purchased the kit at an amazing low price. These type of monocrystalline panels used to sell for over $500 each. If you need an off grid or on grid system this company is the place to get it.The instructions that come with it seem a little sketchy but if you go to their website they have all the info you need for an easy install including videos. Now I am able to run my flat screen TV, all of the lights, and most anything else in my living room.
Pros and Cons
- Expandable – you can expand your system up to a maximum of 400W
- Efficient – High module conversion efficiency (approx. 15.46%)
- Improved – the Renogy Wanderer
