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!
