120w Portable Solar Panel
We always ensure that our products are of the highest quality. That's why we have developed this lightweight portable 120W folding solar charging kit - comprised of 2 x highly durable solar panels made from German monocrystalline solar cells and reinforced with anodised aluminium and a strong ETFE surface, along with a high efficiency 10A MPPT solar charge controller fitted on the back of the kit to protect your batteries and extract the maximum available power from the solar panels.
This lightweight portable folding solar kit is designed to provide free power for charging 12V batteries, for example in vehicles and boats (motorhome, caravan, camper, narrowboat, yacht etc) or any other systems with a 12V battery or battery bank. It comes with everything required for battery charging and can be used immediately - simply connect it to your battery and find a well-lit area for the folding solar panels.
This folding solar charging kit includes:
Lightweight 60W + 60W aluminium-reinforced solar panels with a durable ETFE coating
High-efficiency waterproof 10A MPPT solar charge controller
Adjustable aluminium folding stand
5m battery cable with crocodile clips for ease of connection
Protective storage case
Incredibly lightweight (only 6.3 kg) and easily transportable using the inbuilt handles and protective case.
Suitable for all weather conditions - the kit is 100% waterproof, even including the solar charge controller fitted on the back.
High efficiency 60W + 60W folding solar panels are made of high quality German 5-busbar monocrystalline solar cells.
Advanced 10A MPPT solar charge controller extracts the maximum power from the solar panels whilst providing complete safety protection.
Adjustable aluminium folding stand for positioning the solar panels towards direct sunlight to maximise their ouput.
Sturdy storage case made with a layer of protective foam to prevent accidental damage to the solar kit.
Lightweight aluminium-reinforced solar panels
The high-efficiency solar cells perform exceptionally well in low light conditions (particularly when compared to solar cells of other origin) and they produce a good amount of power simply in daylight, even when direct sunlight is not available.
These reinforced solar panels feature an embedded sheet of anodised aluminium fully encapsulated within the solar panels for added strength and resilience. In addition, the surface of solar panels is made of strong ETFE material which has a longer service life compared to standard lightweight solar panels. As a result, these particular solar panels are extremely hard-wearing and less prone to cracking , delamination and corrosion. The lightly textured coating of this panel creates an anti-reflective surface which allows the panel to absorb a far greater amount of light, thereby increasing efficiency.
High-efficiency MPPT solar charge controller
The waterproof, high-efficiency 10A MPPT solar charge controller mounted on the back of the solar kit constantly measures the battery's state of charge to select the most appropriate charging parameters. The Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) functionality offers increased efficiency compared to standard PWM charge controllers, and ensures that the solar kit provides as much power as possible . The controller also provides important safety protection for the battery against overcharging, reverse current / polarity, overheating and overload.

Advantages of Portable Solar
Portable solar panels have quickly become a popular option for those looking to harness the power of the sun while on the go. These panels offer a number of advantages over traditional, fixed solar panels, making them a great choice for a wide range of applications.
First and foremost, the most obvious advantage of portable solar panels is their portability. They can easily be transported and set up wherever you need them, which makes them ideal for camping, RVing, boating, and other outdoor activities. This portability allows you to harness the power of the sun no matter where you are, providing you with reliable and sustainable power sources.
Another major advantage of portable solar panels is that they are easy to install. Unlike traditional, fixed solar panels, which often require professional installation, portable solar panels can be set up by just about anyone. This makes them a great option for people who are on a tight budget, or who want to avoid the hassle of professional installation.
In addition to being portable and easy to install, portable solar panels are also highly efficient. They use advanced technology to track the sun and optimize power output, which helps to ensure that they are producing as much power as possible. This efficiency means that even small portable solar panels can produce enough power to meet the needs of most portable devices, making them a great choice for powering laptops, tablets, and other electronic devices.
Lastly, portable solar panels are also very cost-effective. They are often less expensive than traditional, fixed solar panels, which can make them an attractive option for people who are on a tight budget.
Overall, portable solar panels are an excellent choice for anyone looking to harness the power of the sun while on the go. They are portable, easy to install, highly efficient, and cost-effective, making them a great choice for a wide range of applications. Whether you're camping in the wilderness, boating on the open water, or just looking for an alternative power source, portable solar panels are a great option to consider.
