What Do I Look For When Buying a Portable Solar Panel?
Are you flabbergasted when it comes to figuring out what portable solar panel is right for you? If you’re tired of being tethered to a power outlet and want to bring your work or play outside, a portable solar panel might be just what you need. Not only do they provide a sustainable way to charge all of your electronic devices, but they also give you a chance to get some fresh air and sunshine while you’re at it.
Before you start shopping for your new solar panel, there are a few things to consider. Let’s shine a little light on the subject:
Figuring Out The Correct Wattage: The first thing to think about is how much power you need. Higher wattage panels are larger and more expensive, but they will charge your devices faster. Be sure to check your device’s specifications before you buy a panel with too much or too little power.
Portability: How are you traveling to your outdoor workspace or secret get-away-spot? Make sure you choose a panel that’s lightweight and easy to carry. If you are carrying, go lighter. If you can put it in the trunk and access it when you arrive go big baby!
Price: Portable solar panels come in a wide range of prices, so it’s important to choose one that fits your budget. Remember, the cost of the panel may be offset by the freedom and convenience it provides.
Compatibility: Be aware of the connection type of the panel. If you have a Solar Generator, some panels may have a different type of connection. You can also add more and chain them together as you grow, so try to use the same manufacturer if possible. If you chain them together, the voltage needs to be the same as well.
With these factors in mind, you’re ready to start shopping for your perfect portable solar panel. And when you’re out there in the sun, charging up your electronics with renewable energy, you can feel proud that you’re doing your part to protect the planet – and maybe even get a little work done in the process.
