The Voltaic Arc 10W takes monocrystalline solar cell efficiency to new lightweight levels. Charge all your USB devices: smartphones, iPhones, media players, mp3 players, GoPro cameras, GPS, and more. 10 Watts means they will charge quickly, with safe, regulated power from the sun. Or charge any of your external battery packs to keep all your USB gear charged after daylight hours.
This is our Top Pick USB SOLAR CHARGER!
SOLAR STORAGE BATTERY OPTIONS FOR THIS SOLAR PANEL
You can charge directly from this panel, but when you need to store power for use anytime, day or night, these battery packs are the way to do it.
Arc 10W Features…
- ETFE coated solar panel is more durable and UV resistant than epoxy or PET coated panels.
- Regulated USB output allows fast charging direct from the solar panel
- Charger packs tight for easy storage and transport
What can you charge with your Arc 10W?…
The Arc 10W charges all USB devices direct from daylight. Charge your smartphone, GoPro, tablet, and DSLR cameras directly from the sun. This versatile folder is coated with ETFE, meaning that it’s stronger and much more UV resistant than the other solar folders on the market – providing you with a fast and consistent charge longer. Keep it folded in your pack while you’re deep in the woods and pull it out just in time to soak up that afternoon sun.
You don’t need an intermediary USB battery. The Arc10W will charge most USB devices directly. As long as there is sunlight, you are charging.
How much sunlight is needed?
Direct sunlight is best, but even on a bright overcast day, most USB devices will connect and take a charge from this solar panel.
If you have a fussy device that insists on a minimum level of power in order to charge, then simply place even a small battery pack like the V15 or EcoCharge in between the solar panel & your device. These battery packs accept low levels of input power, and at the same time will keep your fussy devices happy.
