That's why you should definitely buy FLIN products!

The choice of solar systems is difficult. Which solar modules should one buy with such a versatile offer? There are a few crucial points that you should definitely pay attention to!


1. Never buy cheap modules!

There are many suppliers on the Internet who offer cheap solar modules. This seems attractive at first, but our electroluminescence images show that you are buying at least twice if you opt for the cheap modules.

Here you can see an electroluminescence image of two modules after one year of use. The left module is one we use for our products. You can see that all cells are intact. On the right you can see a no-name module where almost all cells are destroyed after one year. FLIN focuses on quality that is noticeable in the end!


2. We rely almost exclusively on products made in Europe and our own production!

Although it is cheaper to have bags and other products manufactured in Asia, we have decided to produce everything in Europe or in our own workshop in Kiel due to the long transportation routes, often unfair working conditions and inferior quality. Our FLINbag as well as our junction boxes, pole chutes* and other products are manufactured and assembled here on site. The solar modules are the only components we source from China, while the rest of our systems come from Europe.

*We have developed the mast sliders ourselves so that they are easy to click into the mast system.


3. That's why our modules are better than others!

Our partner companies focus on high quality work. Our solar module manufacturer uses multi-busbar technology. Thanks to its intelligent design, this enables a higher number of electrical contacts, reduces the load on the conductors and thus extends the service life of the module. This makes the modules very robust and therefore perfect for use on sailing boats.

We also offer bifacial solar modules that generate power from both sides - these are used in our FLIN+ products. Other solar module manufacturers now also offer these. But since the modules are almost exclusively fixed to a surface, the bifacial panels lose their function. Because the solar modules can be aligned in almost every of our products, the bifacial modules provide up to 10% more power than conventional modules. All products where we use bifacial modules are marked with a "+" in the name.

4. Our systems are up to 50% more efficient than fixed-mounted solar modules!

The FLINsystems convince with their alignability. Our FLINsail and FLINrail+ are tiltable on one axis, so you can set it at the perfect angle to the sun. Tests show that the FLINsail is up to 50% more effective in an aligned position than in a horizontal position, comparable to plane-mounted solar panels. Our FLINkite+ and FLINpole+ can even be aligned on two axes. This means that here you can adjust the panels not only to the position of the sun, but also to the direction in which the sun is moving. We also have new products: FLINrail+ and FLINpole+. Both of them are already known in a similar way from other suppliers. FLINrail+ is hooked into the railing, FLINpole+ is attached to a frame at the back of the pushpit. The difference again: Both FLINrail+ and FLINpole+ can be aligned to the sun. With these products we also use bifacial modules, again the reflection of the water brings an enormous benefit. This is what makes our FLIN+ products so special!

5. We know how much our modules perform!

We often hear that customers have been mounting their modules on their boat for ten years and don't even notice that their cells are producing virtually no power. Our Victron Energy charge controllers used an app to indicate the angle at which they should align the modules for optimal power generation. So you can additionally see what the perfect angle is that the modules should be aligned at. And it's an easy way to notice when a panel is out of alignment!

In the photo you can see the app where the charging current is displayed.

6. We value the fact that you are satisfied!
