We have a limited stock of used ultralight 26-Watt Solar Panels by Brunton. These panels have been previously used by our satellite phone rental customers and are certified operational with a 6-month warranty. The used kits include the same items as our new kits. Metal eye holes at each corner of the solar panel allow it to be lashed to your tent or backpack. When you are ready to travel, the lightweight 1.7 lb solar panel can be folded up to a compact 8.5" x 11" x 1" size for transport.
Laptop Battery Pack: When combined with a large 72-WHr laptop battery pack, this kit becomes a powerful but very portable energy collection and storage system. Recharge laptops, smartphones, tablets, satellite phones, Inmarsat BGAN terminals, and even car batteries. We recommend using the solar panel to recharge the laptop battery pack rather than directly charging your electronics from the solar panel. Doing this protects your expensive electronic equipment from power brownouts in the solar panel's output caused when clouds pass over or the sun sets. A fuel gauge lets you check the laptop battery pack's current charge level.
The 26-watt Solar Panel kit includes:
DC output cable and 10-piece adapter set for popular laptop computers including Dell, Asus, HP and Sony
Cigarette lighter output cable for the laptop battery pack
Cigarette lighter output cable for the solar panel
Car battery charging output cable for the solar panel (NOTE: recharging a typical car battery can take 12 or more hours of full sunlight)
Multi-plug output cable for the solar panel
USB output cable for the laptop battery pack with a Micro-USB adapter head and a Mini-USB adapter head
