Product Overview

40-Watt Folding Solar Panel allows you to take advantage of a free energy from the sun to power your electronics and 12-Volt batteries. Solar panels offer an environmentally friendly alternative to keeping all your gadgets fully juiced. It uses rugged monocrystalline solar panels but its folding design conveniently allows for it to be a fraction of the size of a traditional solar panel. Fully extended this solar panel measures (L) 51.2 in. x (W) 16.5 in. x (H) 0.2 in. and when folded it is only 16.5 in. x 10.6 in. x 2 in. making it very easy to travel with or store out of the way. O-rings in the corners of the solar panel are for mounting the panel or even clipping to a backpack or bag while hiking. The 40-Watt Folding Solar Panel is weatherproof and includes 10 various make and model laptop adapters and a clamp for use with 12-Volt batteries. Note that this product requires the use of a charge controller (sold separately) to protect your batteries and electronics from overcharging.

Customer Questions & Answers

How to connect this solar panel to a rechargable portable power station.

I have a Black and Decker electromate 400 it has a deep cycle 12v battery.. How can I use this solar panel to recharge it?
Asked by: Jen
Yes, but you will need a separate charge controller. The Black and Decker has a built-in AC charger, but no controller for DC charging. This 40W panel can provide more amps than would be recommended to connect directly to the B&D battery. The controller should be rated for at least 4 Amps or 50 Watts or so. Then, you will need the proper connectors to attach the solar panel to the charge controller input and then the charge controller output to the DC Accessory port on the B&D.

Customer Reviews

40-Watt Folding Monocrystalline Solar Panel for 12-Volt Charging is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Panel in a Durable, Easy to Carry Format On paper, this looked like the best value in a foldable, durable panel with a good capacity for charging 17 AH Lead-Acid batteries. When it arrived, I was impressed with the heavy weight nylon outer skin and durable construction. The connecting cable and adapters are convenient length. I use Anderson PowerPoles on all my batteries, so I easily replaced the battery clamps on the short adapter pigtail with the PowerPoles. This one easy to carry panel gives me almost as many watts as the three heavy, glass and aluminum frame panels I have been using. One of those panels fell and shattered, but this foldable panel seems to be non-breakable. Unlike this one, other panels I looked at seemed to be averse to rain, and I know it is very likely this will get caught in a downpour at some point. This requires a charge controller, so it is a little silly to have the battery clamp pigtail. All in all, it is well-made, nice wattage, not too big, not too heavy and is easily transportable without fear of breakage. This is my first NaturePower product, but I will definitely be looking at others. I'm pleased and impressed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Preliminary review. I have had this solar panel for a week or so and haven't had a chance to use it yet. I have tested it in the sun and found that I was getting 17.5 volts DC (no load), and that is what it is suppose to be according to the manual. I can't wait to put it to use and see in reality how well it performs. Stay tuned, I will revisit this review in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solar battery charger Grommets on top of unit not same as previous unit purchased from same manufacturer. Different panel structure also. Works just as well, very efficient collects energy in closed greenhouse. Battery clamps also different from previous purchased unit but are sufficient for optimal use.
