Portable Power - Alternative
Energy for the Rest of Us
Power anything from a portable radio,
to a PDA and other consumer electronic appliances with our complete,
portable solar power center. This amazing combination is small,
lightweight and custom built for powering portable radios and other
small consumer electronic devices.
The small, yet highly efficient solar
panel delivers 15.4 watts, which is more than enough power to run
any AM/FM or shortwave receiver and charge the battery pack at the
same time. In fact, you could call this the perpetual power center
because in overcast conditions it will keep our Super
909 operating 24 hours a day, indefinitely and still recharge
the battery pack. That's a lot of power from a small 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 adapters. 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.
If you are purchasing this unit to operate a notebook computer,
or power a higher drain device, we would recommend purchasing one
of our larger units, please contact
us for further details. We offer our panels in 15.4 watt, 16
watt and 21 watt versions for higher power output capability.
Included in this kit is a small 15.4 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 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
