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.

3.Decreased hood glare. The surface of Lensun hood solar panel is a high-quality ETFE film, which will not reflect light. And because of the solar panel’s light-absorbing properties, the decreased glare while driving.
