Here you will find a variety of small, portable & foldable solar panels that are designed for hikers and campers who want to power their devices (anywhere) with renewable energy.
Portable solar panels are devices that consist of photovoltaic cells that capture sunlight and convert it into electricity. This is the same function as residential roof panels, but in a much smaller and lighter package. The standalone panels available from Biome feature a battery that can store power even when a device is not attached for charging. They also feature LED battery indicators and a clever sun dial to help with panel alignment.
Portable solar panels come in different sizes, shapes, and capacities. Depending on your needs and preferences, you will need to evaluate which product suits you best. The most important things to consider are:
- Output. We stock a 5W and 10W version of the Biolite Solar Panel. Watts measure the power output of the panel, and roughly translate to how long it will take to charge a device.
- Weight. This is related to the output. Typically, lighter panels will have a much lower output than heavy panels as the number of photovoltaic cells needs to increase to increase output.
- Price. We have a variety of solar panels and solar powered lights so that we have an option at all price points. Remember, a rechargeable device paired with a solar panel means you will never need to buy batteries again, saving you money in the long run.
At Biome, we have selected portable solar panels that are not only efficient and reliable but also eco-friendly and ethical. Our portable solar panels are made by Biolite, who dedicates half of their business to supporting disadvantaged, remote African communities by setting up off grid solar power systems.
By choosing our portable solar panels, you are not only getting a high-quality product but also helping to make a positive difference in the world.
We hope you enjoy using our portable solar panels as much as we do. Thank you for shopping at Biome!
