In most camping situations having a 160w folding solar panel will provide you with enough power to get you through the day and night. As with all power solutions it is best to calculate exactly how much you need based on what items you’ll be using. These panels can deliver DC which is ideal for recharging lithium batteries or directly operating some items.
For those of us that like to get off the beaten track, a reliable power source can be a challenge. Luckily as Australia has some of the best sunshine available, you can use this to generate copious amounts of free energy. While the exact amount of energy you can harness from the sun may change depending on the time of year and the exact location you're travelling in, you can usually expect one 160w folding solar panel to be enough for your needs. As with all new equipment it is best to test it out at home and see if it is suitable for what you’re going to use it for. It is possible to calculate how much power you’ll need, but the math can get a little sticky. So, we’ll always recommend either using it in a safe space where you have access to a power source that can be used in an emergency before hitting the open road.
All the equipment that we sell in the Outbax online store, has been tested to handle the tough Australian conditions. Our products are designed to make your camping trip more enjoyable and to help you see much more of our amazing country. When planning out your power system, we’d suggest looking at making it support your needs and then adding about twenty per cent more just to make sure you're covered.
Are folding solar panels any good?
If you’re looking to get a 160w folding solar panel, you’ll find they offer excellent value for money. These panels are more portable than other models as the folding component means they take up less room than standard sized units. Generally, a large set of solar panels will be quite heavy and they’ll take up a substantial amount of room in your caravan or camper. With foldable solar panels, you’re getting the same amount of power as you’d get from a rigid set but in a more compact form.
Folding solar panels offer an excellent solution to your power needs when you’re camping or travelling in areas where reliable power is not common. They are quick to set up and can be left in place during different weather conditions, as these are durable and completely waterproof. With a 160w folding solar panel, you can expect to generate about 1120 watts of power on a day with seven hours of good sunlight. To get the most out of your panels it is recommended that they are moved during the day so they have access to as much direct sunlight as possible.
