FREquently asked questions
"will armada solar products withstand hail and ice?"
This is one of the questions we get asked most frequently and the answer is, YES! All of our solar products are tested against hail, ice, and anything else that mother nature can throw at them. Just as important, the warranty covers hail and ice damage.
"Which is better, monocrystalline or polycrystalline?"
Another popular question! There are many blogs and articles that suggest that one is better than the other. In actual fact the two are so close in quality and production that it isn't worth distinguishing between them in most applications. Monocrystalline typically has higher peak values but polycystalline is slightly higher in low light conditions. Side by side over the course of a year, a similar quality monocrystalline panel and polycrystalline panel will yield almost identical production. These are the two premier types of solar panels and will typically last over 30 years!
"I'm interested in a portable solar kit and one that mounts to my roof. how do i decide which one is right for me?"
To start, both systems are very good quality, have similar warranties, and operate very much the same. There are pro's and con's to both systems. If we high-lite the advantages and disadvantages of both, hopefully it will make your decision easier.
Portable Folding Kit
You can move it throughout the day to avoid shade and maximize production.
No installation costs.
If you sell your RV, you can keep your solar kit.
If you have more than one RV you can use it with both.
You can use it to charge other batteries at home or for other projects.
Vulnerable to theft.
No expansion (other than buying another complete kit)
Requires some work to set up compared to a permanently mounted panel
Does not work well for keeping batteries maintained while in a storage lot (due to theft).
Standard RV Solar Kit
No need to set anything up once it's installed.
Most kits allow for expansion.
Very hard to steal.
Great for maintaining batteries while in storage (outdoors only).
If parked in the shade there is no ability to move the panel.
If you sell your RV, chances are the solar is going with it.
