Don’t settle for low quality panels that will only cause problems when they are needed most in an emergency. These are flexible and will last through many hard situations because of how strong they are. For example most flexible solar panels come with a PET finish which will only last a year at the very most before flaking, discoloring and cracking. The BnD 100 panels use an ETFE finish that is guaranteed to not flake, discolor or crack for 25 years! It uses a special soft 100% clear plastic finish to allow as much light in as possible while making it extremely scratch resistant. That means when transporting it as it rubs against other panels and items it doesn’t scratch the cells making them less efficient, they keep clear and produce high power.
These panels come with 24in. cables to make it easier to connect many of them to an adapter. They are a great alternative to the Predator 50 panels because they are 1/2 the weight per watt, are very high efficiency and more affordable because of the UV proof panel backing that is used.
Warranty: 100% 1 Year Manufacture. If for any reason the solar panel stops working or has issues within the first year of use from order date the manufacturer will replace the solar panel 100% for free. This also includes shipping, if for any reason a solar panel arrives damaged from shipping the manufacturer will replace it for free.
*Disclaimer: These panels come straight from the manufacturer. Since they are straight from a manufacturer there is the option of increasing the price per panel by adding an actual brand name and logo to the panel. Since I don’t care about building a brand I do not pay the extra fee to do so. This in turn brings the cost down so they are the best priced panels on the market.

Definitely a high quality panel. Produces power even when there are clouds.
I have tried many different lightweight flexible solar panels with my solar generator. I originally got the watt meter from this same site and it works awesome. I did my own little test checking some different solar panels I had on hand and the BnD Flex panels by far outperformed all the others. I like the bumpy surface, helps keep scratches off the cells.
The panels are working great. I have had them for about 5 months and have used them semi-often with my solar generator. I haven't had any problems and I love that they are so lightweight.
I wasn't sure about these panels at first because I couldn't find a lot of information about them. Then I watched the review video that Ben made about the different flexible solar panels and I saw why the BnD Flex 100 panels were so great. I got mine and attached the Watt Meter to them with my solar kit and was very impressed with how much power they were making. I'm glad I went with these panels instead of the cheap ones I saw elsewhere.
Thanks Heidi! I'm glad the kit and panels are working out well for you.
These are definitely great solar panels and are very light. I liked the video explanation about them, it helped me a lot. It took a little while for them to arrive and the packaging had a few dings on it but inside the panels were very well protected and no damage was done to them. I used a watt meter I got too to test them and they are working very well.
Thanks Russ. I appreciate you keeping me in the loop about the dings on the boxes. It's tough once they're shipped we don't have any control on the courier's care but we do have the full warranty on them. Glad they are working great! Let me know if you need any help.
Great panels! They are exactly what I expected and was shown. There isn't a lot of info on them out there so I asked about them. I was told they are named BnD Flex panels because the actual manufacturer is a Business to Business (B2B) company and so they don't have a brand for the panels. That left PoweredPortableSolar.com to name them but it costs more to actually brand them so they just gave it the name BnD Flex 100 panels. They are TOP quality for sure!
I wasn't sure at first if these would be the best fit since they were a little more in price than other ones I saw online. After I watched the video though about comparing the BnD Flex panel to many others out there I was sold. Haven't had any issues with mine and they are very high quality.
Great quality panel. The research done on them was very helpful. I added these to my solar generator with an adapter and they have worked great.
I have been testing my panels ever since I got them. At first I thought I had a defective batch so I contacted Ben for help. I was getting only a couple of watts of power out of each panel. Ben mentioned that if my solar generator was fully charged that the panels don't have anywhere for the power to go so no power goes in. Duh! So I drained my battery a little bit using some equipment then tested the panels again and they were producing over 80 watts each which is pretty normal. Very happy customer. Thanks Ben.
Good panels. Haven't had any issues.
