Solar Power System
Looking for the ultimate portable power
system? RadioLabs offers one of the largest portable solar panels
on the market. You can power most notebook computers with this solar
power pack. The heavy duty tie down rings enable you to secure the
solar panel to a backpack, or virtually and surface.
The small, yet highly efficient solar
panel delivers 20.8 watts, which is more than enough power to run
multiple AM/FM or shortwave radios, charge the battery and other
small DC powered devices at the same time. In fact, you could call
this the perpetual power center because in overcast conditions it
will keep most small electronic equipment operating 24 hours a day,
indefinitely and still recharge the battery pack. That's a lot of
power from a portable solar package.
The included DC stepdown converter enables you to power virtually
any device that runs off of a car's cigarette lighter or standard
household DC wall wart adapter. A switch on the unit enables the
user to select the voltage for any device from 3 - 12 VDC at up
to 1 amp current draw. We chose this particular stepdown because
of it's quiet noise level. It will not interfere with portable radios
and is easy to operate. A number of tip sizes are available for
plugging into the side of your receiver. The quick-change tips make
it possible to quickly plug in a different device. Instructions
for operation are included.
This is the unit to purchase if you plan on operating a notebook
computer. The higher output of the panel will enable you to operate
your computer for longer periods of time. You will also need a power
converter for some notebooks which operate off of a custom adapter
or require voltages higher than 12 volts. Please contact
us for these custom units.
Included in this kit is a small 20.8 watt foldable solar panel and
a complete smart re-charge system which includes an 8 Amp Hour battery
pack. The built-in charge regulator charges the battery in a very
efficient way which not only charges at a high rate, but also maximizes
the battery's life. The 20 Watt solar panel will fully charge the
battery pack in about 5 hours in full sunlight.
The solar panels are made from the highest output mono-crystalline
epoxy coated solar cells and are extremely light weight and fold
to a very small size. These panels are attached to ballistic/rip
stop nylon enclosures and the panels fold to very small dimensions.
Weight is kept to a minimum and each side and each corner features
a sturdy grommet designed to permit you to attach the panel to your
backpack or pack animal pack. This will permit you to charge your
batteries or run electronic devices freely while in motion.
The battery will provide enough power to run a 1AH device for 8
hours. A typical battery powered portable radio requires approximately
300 mAH of current at 6 Volts DC. When the battery pack is fully
charged, this unit will run the radio for over 100 hours without
having to recharge the battery.
This is the highest quality power unit available for small devices
and is highly recommended for backpacking, campers, RVers or emergency
We also have a 10
Watt Solar Power Pack, a 15
Watt Portable Power System, and individual Solar
