Lightweight, easy to pack, and simple to use. The Voltaic 17W Solar Kit is the preferred solution for people wanting to have power at a remote cabin or campsite for cameras, laptops, phones, radios, and other small electronics. The Voltaic 17W Solar Kit combines a rugged, lightweight and waterproof 17W solar panel with a lightweight 88 Watt-Hour solar storage battery.
The Voltaic 17W Solar Kit Includes…
- 17 Watt 18V Solar Panel
- V88 Battery Pack (88WHr)
- AC, DC & USB-C input options
- Standard laptop connectors
- 2.1A USB port
- 12V CLA output socket
- 4′ Solar panel extension cable
- 4′ Solar panel mounting straps
Applications and Charge times
SLR Cameras can be charged via 12V car charger cradles or universal camera chargers… plug them into the V72 battery pack for the best performance (faster than your AC charger in most cases).
Charging The V88 Battery From Solar
The V88 holds 88Wh of energy, and so will take 7-9 hours of sunlight to fully charge from the 17W panel. Effectively a full day.
Can more 17W panels be added? Yes!
The V88 can handle 60W of input, or as many as 3 of the 17W panels, or use the ARC 20W panel. Use the combiner cable to join modules (best to do the combining at the battery, not at the modules in order to minimize energy loss)
