Medium sized portable solar energy systems like the Nomad 1500 from Solar Sense or RV solar kits are ideal in a number of cases:

  • To power a few small items or more, depending on the size of the panel.
  • As handy backup power for any location prone to power outages.
  • As a cheap way to get power when you're off the grid (e.g. remote cabin).

An advantage to these systems is that there is little or no wiring. They are often plug and play systems, meaning that you can simply plug in a few of the plugs and have power instantly. Many systems, such as the Nomad 1500 come with simple control panels that are very easy to use.

You can learn everything you need to know about your system in about 20 minutes!

Powerfilm products charge almost all Lithium, NiCad or NiMH batteries. You can use it to recharge batteries for GPS, GameBoy, cameras, camcorders, boomboxes, lanterns etc.

The SolarPort produces 4.4 watts through a polycrystalline solar panel and weighs 19 ounces. It can be added in series, for more power. It retails for just under $120.

Larger Charger

The Solaris 25 has a three panel design and weighs about 4 lbs. It can generate 25 watts of 12 volt DC power. It can be used in conjunction with the Brunton Solo or Solo II to give you some serious charging. The Solo weighs about 10 lbs and can be used to power items as big as TVs and air pumps. The Solo II is even more powerful and weighs about 14 lbs. The Solo and Solo II retail for $550 and $820 respectively.
