What is a Portable Solar Panel?

Portable solar panels are more compact solar panels, or foldable panels, which are easier to install and can be brought with you wherever you go. They convert sunlight into electricity or heat like typical solar panels, with each panel being divided up into smaller cells made of thin layers of silicon. Even the biggest portable solar panel can be carried in a car.

Portable solar panel kits usually come with things like a cable, storage case, stand, solar charge controller, inverter, and a battery. Because of its portability, it is a great option for having a power device on the go.

What are Solar Panels Made Of?

Solar panels are made from silicon, one of the most abundant elements on Earth. Every panel has a thin layer of silicon cells surrounded by a metal frame and protected in glass. The wires inside each panel is what transports electricity from the solar cells into your power device.

How do Solar Panels Work?

When the sun is bright, it releases photons, which are tiny particles of energy. When photons come in contact with solar panels part of a power generator, electrons move around in the solar cell. This creates an electric current, which inverters change into usable energy types, which is when electricity becomes available and clean energy is stored for when you need it.

During colder and darker months, your solar panels will not be able to create as much energy. However, the electricity stores in your solar panel battery will come back to reward you, and can be used to ensure your investment in solar power pays off. It is also a great option as a backup generator, as it is natural energy which cannot be lost in a power outage.

Portable solar panels generally come with a waterproof kit, which makes them usable in any weather condition. They generate energy without fossil fuels and are completely noise-free.

How to Choose a Good Solar Panel

ROCKSOLAR offers a great selection of portable solar panels, but you should go over these key features to make sure you’re choosing the right kit for your needs.

Efficiency

The efficiency of a solar panel is relative to the amount of solar energy that can be converted into electricity. A higher energy efficiency means the panel takes up less space, but still has a solid output. ROCKSOLAR foldable solar panels maximize your output while not taking up much space.

Wattage

Higher wattage means better efficiency. If you want more energy for a longer amount of time, seek out a foldable solar panel that advertises high wattage - this will especially come in handy during darker days or emergencies.

Brand Awareness

You want to know that the solar panel you have is going to work when you’re traveling, wherever you are, or during emergencies. It is an investment for future trips and colder seasons. Investing in a high-quality portable solar panel, made of water-resistant materials with high efficiency, is an investment worth making. ROCKSOLAR is a leader in efficient outdoor power sources, including foldable, portable solar panels that can provide energy for long periods of time.
