Couple of weeks ago, I wrote a review on Brunton solar roll explaining whether it was a good buy or not. This time around, I thought of writing another review on Brunton’s product, the 26 watt foldable solar array.
This unit, code name Solaris 26, can be considered the big brother of the previous post on the solar roll.
How much power can we get out of the Solaris 26?
Well, from its name suggests 26 watt maximum output!
Brunton Solaris 26 is made from Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide (CIGS), which is the most efficient thin film solar technology available in the market right now. It is capable of generating electric current even under very low light situation.
The unit is pretty handy when you need power on the go. With its high power output capacity, it can be used to charge your electronic gadgets such as laptop, digital camera, digital video recorder, Ipod, Iphone, satellite dish etc. You never have to worry about your battery running out of power ever again.
The main feature of the Solaris 26 is its foldability. When it is stretched out, it measures 21.5 x 37.5 inches. When it is folded, it is only 11 x 8.5 inches or about the size of a DVD case. It weighs only 28 ounces making it very convenience and you can store it on your briefcase or backpack.
When you purchase the Solaris 26, what you’ll get in the box are the foldable solar panels, user’s manual, storage sack, battery clamp cable, multi-link cable and also a vehicle outlet cable. It comes with a one manufacturer’s warranty from Brunton.
The unit is available from Amazon.com at $282.50 inclusive of shipping. It you are a person always on the move and needs an energy source to charge your electronic gadgets, check out the Brunton Solaris 26. To buy it from Amazon.com, click here.
