The SunLINQ 6.5 is the smallest, and most compact solar module in the SunLINQ line. In summer months, the SunLINQ 6.5 solar panel will generate approx 20-30 Watt-hours of power each day, which is enough to power a typical laptop for one hour (of course you will need to store the solar power in a battery pack & deliver it to the laptop in the format it wants.

The SunLINQ line of folding solar panels is very popular with outdoor researchers who are looking for a very compact, yet powerful solar option to help power laptop computers and other research equipment miles from an outlet. The SunLINQ modules are also popular with hunters, hikers, boaters, photographers, and other outdoor enthusiasts who need to keep batteries and electronics operating far from home.

Phones, PDAs, & Smart Phones:
The SunLINQ 6.5 supports any phone via the phone’s 12V car adaptor. This includes smart phones like Blackberries. For phones that charge from USB, you may want to consider using a 12V USB adaptor.
iPods & mp3 Players:
Connect your iPod or other mp3 player to the SunLINQ 6.5 via a 12V USB adaptor.
Most cameras will not charge from a 12V source, so to charge a digital camera, you will need to connect the SunLINQ 6.5 to a solar storage battery that offers a connection to a camera charger for your camera model. Pairing the SunLINQ 6.5 with the Solio Mono is a great choice for this purpose.
The SunLINQ 6.5 can power many GPS units that offer 12V car adaptors. GPS units that use USB will need a 12V USB adaptor to convert the panel to USB output.
AA/AAA Battery Charging:
We’ve tried the SunLINQ 6.5 with DC-input & USB battery chargers, and can recommend the Mini 12V Charger and the C401 Charger. Larger models require more than the maximum power output of the SunLINQ 6.5, so to use them, you will need a solar storage battery to provide the necessary output.
The SunLINQ 6.5 is not able to power laptop computers directly, but can provide up to 1 hour a day in typical mobile applications through the use of a solar storage battery that provides the necessary output power.
