Product Description

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 72 Watt-Hour solar storage battery.

The Voltaic 17W Solar Kit Includes…
  • 17 Watt 18V Solar Panel
  • V72 Battery Pack (72WHr)
    • AC & DC 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
With a few exceptions for ruggedized laptops, we recommend charging laptops via a battery like the Voltaic V72, not directly from a solar panel. 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).
Approximate Charge Time from 17-Watt Panel**
  • Voltaic V72 Battery: 8-9 hours in direct sunlight
  • Smartphone via Voltaic battery: 1-2 hours
  • Digital Camera: 1-3 hours
**For maximum power output, orient the panels towards the sun. When not angled towards the sun, output will be reduced. Dirt and scratches on the face of the panels will reduce the amount of light hitting the solar cells. Clean the panels with a damp non-abrasive cloth. Charge times are estimated based on optimal conditions and may increase in cloudy weather, high temperatures, or when panels are not angled towards the sun.
