Camping does not have to mean you are completely letting go of creature comforts. After all, you still need to power up campsite lights to keep you and your camping companions safe. You still need to power up let’s say a portable fan so you are not setting yourself up for an all-night buffet for mozzies.
However, camping with even an inverter generator can be a hassle, particularly if you are trying to stay within a strict budget. After all, you would not want to spend time and money stopping to buy petrol for the genny right? Also, generators have always been a popular choice for camping enthusiasts but that seems to be changing.
Generators require fuel, emit harmful fumes, and often require maintenance. Plus they can be extremely noisy disrupting the peace and tranquility for anyone near them. In fact generators are not allowed in national parks and even some caravan parks ban their use.
The solution is to get one or two of Maxray 200 watt camping solar panels from Outbax. With Monocrystalline solar cells, you will find that you can efficiently harness solar power, and you will have a solar panel system that can last for a lifetime.

When the sun’s out, connecting a solar panel to a camping battery is an efficient way to charge and power appliances and devices.
They can be mounted to your roof rack on top of your caravan, camper trailer, 4WD or boat or even positioned on the ground.
