The UltraLight AA solar charging kit is as lightweight & effective as it gets. The kit is comprised of the Enerplex Kickr I thin film solar panel paired with the Voltaic Mini USB AA charger. Together, this panel & battery can provide power to any USB devices, while also giving you AA battery charging. We’ve even included the coolest little LED flashlight ever!
UltraLight AA : The Kickr I Solar Panel…
The panel provides 1.5 Watts of power in peak sunlight, which is enough to offset up to 50% of a smartphone battery in summer months. The panel is made with Enerplex’s CIGS thin film solar cells, which are more sensitive than common crystalline cells. This means that you will collect more power in any daylight conditions than any other 1.5W solar panel.
The USB port on the panel is used to charge the Jumpr battery, but can also power most USB devices directly too.
UltraLight AA : The Tiny USB AA Charger & Power Bank…
When you need to charge AA or AAA batteries from USB, this is your smallest option. Voltaic Systems tested more than a dozen different AA chargers before confirming that this is the best for use with solar panels. This tiny USB AA charger handles both AA and AAA rechargeable batteries (NiMh only). It collapses to an even smaller size when you don’t have batteries installed.
Use the ‘IN’ setting to charge AA/AAA batteries from a USB source.
Use the ‘OUT’ setting to charge USB devices from your AA or AAA batteries.
AA Battery Specifications…
Yes! In this kit, the batteries are included! But, we only sell the best NiMh cells… the ones with incredibly low-self-discharge. This means that when you charge your AA’s, they stay charged until you need them.
Currently we are featuring the Imedion AA’s : 2400mAHr capacity each.
