SunSoaker 10-Watt Kit
Compact, rugged, works great! Probably bulkier than an ultra-light hiker would want, but for short trips, family adventures off the grid, car camping, or a day trip anticipating lots of photos or phone map usage this product is great!
Living in Arizona, I have always liked the idea of using solar energy as a power source whenever possible. I purchased one of the 10-Watt kits to see if I could incorporate it into my backpacking layout. I like the inclusion of suction cups and carabiners in the kit, all of which comes nicely packed in a durable round canister. When it arrived, I immediately set it out on a table in our back yard to test how quickly it would recharge a Goal Zero Venture 30 battery pack. This battery pack is what I use to recharge my devices (smartphone and GPS watch) while in the field. In 4 hours of direct sunlight and light shade, the battery pack was recharged 80%. I consider that a good return. There are two negatives I see to using the SunSoaker as a regular backpacking tool. 1) Weight - At around 14 oz., the kit is certainly not an ultralight addition to my backpack. (If I just pack the panel, it weighs in at around 9 oz.) 2) The panel cannot be folded which requires some care to put inside my pack without threatening to damage the panel unless I keep it inside the round canister it comes in. I like the concept; am just not sure how much I will actually use the panel backpacking for the two reasons stated.
Great Product for a reasonable price. Five star company.
I am very impressed with the quality of the solar panel. Even the carabiners are nice quality. Nice tube to store it in. Shipping was fast,
