A 180 watt solar panel can provide you with enough power for all your daily needs. By using the power of the sun, you can power some devices directly but for the best results, it is recommended to store the electricity in a suitable battery. Many of the solar panels we sell are monocrystalline and work on a 12v system, they are highly portable and perfect for use in situations where you need a reliable power solution. These panels are completely waterproof and can be easily moved to track the sun during the day giving you a maximum amount of charging hours.
If you’re into getting off the beaten track then having a reliable source of power, like what you can expect from the 180 watt solar panel, is how you can still enjoy some of the benefits of modern convenience. Even if you’re not into watching television or other luxuries, having a suitable power solution can keep your phone charged, and supply power to many other emergency items. As Australia has some of the best sunshine available (average daylight hours are about 7 hours per day year-round), you’ll never be that short of charging time. When planning your trip, we’d recommend checking on how much light you can expect while you're travelling, this can help you plan out how many panels you may need. At Outbax we can supply you with all the equipment required to set up your camping power system. The exact requirements you’ll need are determined by what items need power daily.
Is a 180 watt solar panel enough for camping?
When considering which solar panels are best for your camping trip, you’ll need to think about how many hours a day you plan on having it running. Solar panels need good daylight hours to work as they should. On an average day of seven hours of sunlight, you can expect to get about 1260 watts out of a 180 watt solar panel. However, if you’re travelling in summer or winter this may change the amount of good charging sunlight. To figure out if this is enough you can add up all the watts required by what you’re planning on having running during the day and night. For the best results, it’s ideal that your solar panels are connected to a suitable battery; in most cases, the 100Ah lithium battery will be enough, but you can go for a higher model if required. To get the best out of your mobile power solution it’s a great idea to examine what you require and then add about 25%, as this will give you some wriggle room if you have a couple of overcast days and you can’t get a full recharge.
For most instances, a 180 watt solar panel will be enough to run several devices, unless you have power heavy appliances (televisions, microwave, fridges, etc.). If you feel that these panels may not be enough for your requirements, you can buy additional panels or a larger system. If you need solar panels that take up less space, you can opt for a suitable solar blanket or other camping solar panels. Working out the exact requirements of your power systems can be difficult, and we’d suggest getting it all set up and testing out the system at home before going out on the road. If you have the 180w solar panels set up but they’re not enough, you can look at if you can reduce the load on the system as an easy solution.
