    Polycrystaline aren't as efficient as monocrystaline, other than that, seems plausible.

    Does the absence of glass and frame make any difference

    flexible panels never have a frame or glass my son has similar on his van and it the only real difference between poly and mono is you need a slightly bigger panel to give the same output

    Unless someone comes up with really negative reasons against them , I think I'm going to give them a go, leave it a day or two yet in case there's something iv missed.

    They look fine. I wouldn't worry about the difference between poly and mono crystalline, the difference between them has narrowed in recent years and in a sense efficiency is a meaningless term when the source of the energy is free. If they are slightly less efficient they will just be a tad bigger to get the same amount of power.
