Traveling And Camping With Solar Power
Whether it’s a notebook for preparing tours, a navigation app on a smartphone, a camera, or a GPS device, they all have one thing in common. Without electricity, they’re little more than paperweight. Despite ever more powerful batteries, most of the devices that you are reluctant to do without on your off-road tours have to be recharged after a few hours or days.
Depending on the travel area, finding a power outlet can range from difficult to downright impossible. As soon as you expand your own radius of action via permanent campsites and huts with service, the topic of mobile power supply like Ecoflow Delta Max 2000 becomes a real challenge for all outdoor enthusiasts.
Compact solar panels for backpacking and trekking
Compact solar systems are ideal for having enough power for your GPS device and smartphone on multi-day hikes away from civilization. The foldable modules are very light and also weatherproof in their outer shell. Equipped with USB and Micro USB ports, most power banks, smartphones, or headlamps with USB ports can be charged directly on the panel.
Backpacking solar panels are often designed to attach to backpacks while hiking. If there is sufficient solar radiation, the devices are charged in this way throughout the day.
Mobile solar systems for mobile homes and camping
In contrast to permanently installed solar panels on the roof, mobile solar panels offer maximum flexibility when camping away from campsites with a power supply from the socket. Anyone who does not have to pay attention to pack size and weight, because the panels are primarily transported by car from parking space to parking space, is well advised to use a large, foldable solar module or a solar case.
The two or three solar modules are already equipped with a solar regulator and cable connection and can be put into operation directly without much effort. Since they are not permanently mounted, they can always be optimally aligned to the sun. With mobile solar systems, travelers need not fear damage from hail or storms, which can occur with permanently installed panels. A combination of both systems is of course also conceivable.
