Review of Land Rover Discovery LR3/LR4 Lensun 110W Hood Solar Panel

Much Thanks Kamil’s Installation Experience of His 110W Land Rover Discovery LR3.

What is Kamil Said About This 110W Hood Solar Panel

Kamil said: Before it’s time to sum up this year’s vacation, which was admittedly without spectacular expeditions, but equally intense and exciting, a few words about our small power upgrade.

Two months ago, we received a panel from @lensunsolar that we ordered in the spring. 110W power and, most importantly, matching the hood of our Wolf, including cut-out holes for the windshield washer. Installation is trivial. We used also a black foil, which serves as a background.

We stick double-sided tape to the panel and all to the hood, and filled the small gap with black silicone.

We also bought a decent charging regulator, which we hid under the driver’s seat in place of the disc reader from the factory navigation, which we do not use anyway.

After two months of use, we can say that it is really good.

Of course, it depend from the sun, from arrangement of the car, but in our case the panel is an additional solution apart from the charging distributor from the main battery.

We consider the charging result in full sun to be quite good. If we stick to the expedition plan with a longer stay in one place, we will probably think about an additional portable panel.

Jesse’s Review

First off not only for the functionality of this 3rd Tacoma hood solar panel but I want to start off with how nice and formal it looks on the hood of my Tacoma it adds a nice touch and always get compliments on it,
As far as the install goes it’s so simple literally anybody can do it you can check out my install video it’s so easy all plug and play,
I like the fact that this will keep my battery up to charge at all times in that it should help make my battery last a lot longer eventually I’ll be adding a power bank or dual battery with this so I can keep my fridge running and more items at all times. Loving the product so far would recommend it

In addition to 3rd Tacoma, We also Got Installation Picture from Bill for His 2rd Tacoma.

Bill’s Review:

I Installed a Lensun 90W (5A, 18v)hood panel on my 2104 Tacoma along with a Lensun 50W (2.8A,17.5v)panel on the top of my cab. My system uses a Redarc BCDC1240D charge controller with 2 Dakota Lithium 60Ah batteries (in parallel). I’ve had the panels about a year now and have monitored their performance at different times of the day throughout the year. The panels are performing as expected and I’ll soon be upgrading the 50W cab top panel with a larger custom sized 100w panel. I’m able to maintain about 2.9amps from the hood panel and 1.9amps from the cab panel for the majority of the day, combined runs about 4.7amps. I have a 3rd 120W portable panel wired in parallel and can achieve about 11amps total with all 3 panels. These panels meet my needs for charging batteries while camping. Another plus is permanently mounted panels are convenient as my storage space is limited and it eliminates the worry about them being stolen when I’m away from camp. During the purchase and installation of the panels I had many questions, all of which were answered rapidly. Lensun has excellent customer support, five star!

I recommend Lensun panels and plan to add them to my other vehicles.

Ford Van E350 Sportsmobile Lensun 105W Hood Solar Panel Installation

Much Thanks to Loren’s Installation Experience About His Ford Van E350 Sportsmobile Hood Solar Panel.

What Loren Said

The Lensun hood solar panel is an amazing piece of kit.  Our E350 Sportsmobile is our rolling vacation home and we have been slowly building it out to suit our adventures.  After upgrading from an ice cooler to a fridge, we were draining our starting battery after two days of camping. We added a deep cycle battery which increased that range, but I wanted a permanent solution that would keep both batteries fully charged and ready to go at a moments notice. 

When I found the Lensun hood solar panel I was skeptical but I decided to give it a shot.  I chose the hood mount panel because I only needed 100watts, it was a simple install that didn’t require cutting through my roof, and the panel can easily be wiped clean from the ground to maximize efficiency.

First, the customer service that I experienced was amazing. I asked for a specific application for my van and the team was available to answer any questions I had along the way, including walking me through the testing procedure after the first panel was damaged in shipping. They were able to get me a new panel immediately and without any hassle.  The installation went smoothly and was actually much easier than I anticipated. 

For my van I installed the controller on top of the fuse box allowing me to see the power and charging lights and also allowing me to route all of the cables without any modification maintaining a very clean look under the hood. Because I have a battery isolator, I was able to connect directly to the starting battery and it will charge that battery first and then overflow is directed to the house battery. 

This panel puts out 21v in direct sunlight which is plenty to keep both batteries topped up at all times allowing my fridge to run continuously without issue.  I do have Bluetooth battery monitors connected to both batteries so that I can monitor charge and loads.

This is an amazing product that has been working great since I installed it.  If you’re installing by yourself, be sure to mark everything well and pay attention, which I did not do. During the installation of the vinyl, I had marked the top but I wasn’t watching and installed it upside down.  It does not affect the function of the vinyl and the coverage area is sufficient, but I was gluing the panel down when I noticed which was too late. The 3m VHN tape that I purchased worked great and I used about a roll and a half (21 feet total).

Hood Solar Panel Installation Experience for 120W Volkswagen VW Touareg

Much Thanks Jerahmel’s Installation Experience About His VW Touareg Hood Solar Panel.

What Jerahmel Said About His 120W Touareg Hood Solar Panel

Every time we go to over landing, we always bring some food like fresh milk, ice cream, drinks in our cooler.
I use the 768W Ecoflow portable battery which conveniently powers my car fridge. I have a 120W solar panel on the roof to charge my Ecoflow, but it’s clearly not enough as it won’t keep the fridge going for more than two nights in a row.
So I added the 120W hood solar panel, it apparently charges my Ecoflow faster and runs my fridge, I am very happy with it, thanks LENSUN!

Jerahmel’s Review

I got this FJ hood solar panel in addition to my existing 120watt that was installed on my roof top tent. Even though my car is not an FJ but it fits perfectly on my VW touareg. This solar panel is a game changing having endless possibilities for my power system and be able to power my fridge 24/7. The quality and flexibility of this particular solar panel is superb and went beyond my expectations. If it comes with a double sided tape, it would have save me a trip to a local hardware store but other than that, I love this product! I will be getting 3 more for my sprinter van build in a few months! Good job Lensun for this amazing product!

Hood Solar Panel Installation Experience for 2021Ram HD 3500

Much Thanks to Alexandre’s Installation Experience of His 2021 Ram HD 3500 Hood Solar Panel.

Alexandre said: “I fell in love with Lensun Solar. It’s a Chinese company and although I often hate Chinese products for their poor quality, Lensun’s panels are anything but cheap. What mainly distinguishes Lensun is their flexible, very thin black colored solar panels with an ETFE coating that improves the reception of the rays when the sun is not perfectly perpendicular to the panel. It is certainly not the only company that produces solar panels in style, but to my knowledge, it is one or if not the only one that offers the possibility of ordering them to measure.
I ordered 2 large 180W panels from LENSUN and at the same time added 2 120W flex, finally I installed this 100W panel on my RAM 3500 hood, I am very happy with these from LENSUN A total of 700W of solar panels, it greatly meets my electricity needs and facilitates my camping trips. “

Customized 33W Flexible Solar Panel Installed on Boat

Due to the different sizes and shapes of our boats, vehicles, tents etc., it is often difficult to find the right solar panel to match the dimension of our installation in reality perfectly.


Even if we find the right solar panel, we may not be able to find a suitable wire layout depending on where the batteries are stored.


Lensun provides customized services to our customers by customizing special flexible solar panels. Customizing solar panels are produced similarly to standard solar panels and use the same materials. Because they are customizing solar panels, you have the freedom to decide where the electrical connectors will be placed, the cell layout of your choice, and more which will save you a lot of time and costs. With a professional research and development team, we can provide suitable products according to your requirements.

Hood Solar Panel Installation Experience for Toyota 60W 4Runner 4th & 5th Gen (2003-2021) with Scoop

We go outdoor camping almost every weekend or on a long vacation, you can call it a short journey or a long trip. The truck refrigerator is the most important and the most frequently used camping equipment of all the equipment because our food, drinks, beer, etc are stored in it. How to charge the refrigerator has become the hardest problem we need to solve in camping.

We need a solar panel that can be fixed somewhere to power the refrigerator continuously whether it is sunny or raining, and it is not easy to be stolen. Most trucks’ roof has cooperated with a luggage rack that is not suitable for installing solar panels, Most portable solar panels require us to go to a place to lay it, and adjust the angle frequently to collect sunlight which makes it is cumbersome for each time using.

Yes, Guys, we need a waterproof hood solar panel to connect with our truck’s 12V battery to supply power to the refrigerator (the truck does not need to be started) directly which solves the power consumption problem for the truck refrigerator perfectly!

Much Thanks to Adam’s Installation Experience of His 3*20W 4Runner Hood Solar Panel.

Custom Solar Panels for Tent Roof and Dodge Ram Hood

We helped one of our customers named Alexandre Grégoire provide a solar panel custom solution for his Dodge truck, Helped him increase the power of the solar panel, Which helped him improve the electricity demand of his vehicle.

This article comes from here: pretspourlaroute

If you’re a Road Ready subscriber, you probably think I have an obsession with solar panels. I had completely filled the roof of our Micro Minnie in 2016, then the Airstream switched to cash and for the new kid, the challenge was daunting, since the roof is relatively small and my energy needs are no less…

My solution: custom-made solar panels!

I fell in love with Lensun Solar. It’s a Chinese company and although I often hate Chinese products for their poor quality, Lensun’s panels are anything but cheap. What mainly distinguishes Lensun is their flexible, very thin black colored solar panels with an ETFE coating that improves the reception of the rays when the sun is not perfectly perpendicular to the panel. It is certainly not the only company that produces solar panels in style, but to my knowledge, it is one or if not the only one that offers the possibility of ordering them to measure.

This is a huge asset, because most standard sizes of solar panels do not allow us to optimize 100% of the space on our roof to generate solar energy. There is always a loss of space depending on the shape of the vehicle or the accessories that are installed (air conditioning, skylights, fans, antennas, etc.).

The ordering process is relatively simple, we take the precise measurements of our available space and we produce a plan that we will send by email to Lensun Solar here: [email protected]. They will then come back with a detailed plan of the panel, inserting as many cells as possible to maximize the space. If it suits you, you pay and will receive the panel in a few weeks.

In addition, as the panels are thin and slightly flexible, they perfectly fit the shape of the roof, so it is much more aerodynamic. Also, the panels must be glued (with glue or double-sided 3M film), so no holes are drilled and the possibility of water infiltration is eliminated.

For my part, I ordered 2 large 180 watt panels for the front part of our LOKI. Since the dimension was quite large, they preferred to make it in two pieces to reduce the delivery cost and facilitate the installation. Then I have two more 120 watt panels that will be removable (secured using the eyelets at the 4 corners) on the roof terrace.

The icing on the cake is the new panel that I just installed on the hood of our RAM 3500. It occupies the middle portion of the hood perfectly. I stuck it on a matte black film (3m wrap), so if I ever want to remove it one day, I will only have to peel off the wrap below the panel. This discreet panel adds another 100 watts more.

In total, that’s 700 watts of solar panels on a tiny portable camper! Casually, it is sufficient for our energy needs in addition to providing us with enough to operate our new 12V air conditioning module which is very energy efficient!

YouTube video available at:

After adding 700W solar panels to my truck, it’s much more convenient for my camping life, I’m very happy with the modified RAM 3500, the panels have helped me a lot in my camping life.

All this is without counting our solar cover which adds an extra 200 watts. 200W purchase link is as follows: Lensun 200W Foldable Solar Blanket

The cost of the custom panels is a little more expensive, but casually, it is more than double the solar energy produced by these panels compared to those installed on the prototype of LOKI Basecamp. To give you an idea, my two large panels of 180 watts each cost me $1734.40 including delivery. If you have a large 40-foot fifthwheel, it is much more economical to install large rigid solar panels there since you have the space to do so. For small RVs (class C, class B and small trailers), this is a super interesting option to maximize your solar energy intake and improve your autonomy!

Lensun 200W 12V Portable Solar Panel Blanket with Standard Connectors for Solar Generator Power Station

Chad already owns a hood solar panel for his Land Rover LR3. This 200W Portable Solar Blanket is his 2nd solar panel for his Goal Zero Yeti 500X solar generator.

What Chad Said About This 200W Portable Solar Blanket For His Goal Zero Yeti 500X.

Vinnie said: I did test out Lensun’s hood solar panel mounted on my Land Rover Discovery 3, this is the second solar panel I paid from them.
I absolutely love solar panels, they are fantastic to have when you are camping off-grid over landing whatever you want to call it.

Lensun 200W solar blanket comes with a nice carry case, with a pocket for accessories such as typical MC4 solar connectors found on most solar panels today, Anderson cable, and a bunch of little adapters for connecting things like a Goal Zero Yeti, Jackery, Ecoflow. Pretty nice.

I have this 200W solar blanket a few months ago, and it is absolutely awesome for me that it charged for my Zero from 46 percent to 96 percent in four to six hours in that cloudy condition in today’s test. It actually beat my expectations. I know it would have gone 50 percent to 100 percent in two hours probably if it was sunny the whole day. I absolutely love it, and it is a great piece of gear to have for camping and over landing.

Hood Solar Panel Installation Experience for 90W Land Rover Defender (2020-present)

When we are preparing for an outdoor off-road activity, whether it is a short trip of two to three days or a long trip of more than a few months, we need to solve the power supply for our vehicle to keep the small equipment in it working stably such as car refrigerators, speakers, mobile phones, tablets, computers, lights, etc.

We can chose to charge the portable power bank or the vehicle’s main battery, but both require a solar panel to charge them regularly, the development of the Lensun hood solar panel is a wonderful idea, it only needs to be installed on the hood then can continue to charge the battery whether if the truck is starting or not. The 17.5V working voltage can charge most 12V devices. The Lensun hood solar panel is only 3mm thick and it looks like a part of the car after installation.

Grant’s Review

I installed the 85 watt system with charge controller on my 2020 Defender 110x. The solar panel install was easy with two sided automotive trim tape and plugs right into the charge controller. Just a positive & negative connection to your battery jumper posts in the engine bay and your done.
