Solar for Tent Camping

When choosing a solar charger for tent camping, you’ll want something lightweight and compact so that you can bring into your tent with you at night. Our Arc series is perfect for this application. Made with super durable EFTE coating, the Arc 10W and Arc 20W Kit feature built in metal grommets for easy attaching and a compact foldable design. You can attach to your day pack while hiking or to tent poles when at camp using carabiners or any extra rope or pulls.

Solar for Camper Vans

For car camping we recommend choosing a solar charger that is designed to be left outside 24/7, that way you can leave the panel attached to your van while exploring for the day. Our Solar Panel Kits, which feature a Voltaic rigid solar panel and an external battery pack, can easily be installed (temporarily or semi-permanently) so that when you’re parked in the sun – you’re solar charging. Compared to our foldable Arc panels, our signature rigid panels are IPX7 waterproof and can withstand high winds and heavy rain thanks to the super strong aluminum/plastic composite backing.

  • IPX7 Waterproof Panels
  • Strong Aluminum/Plastic Composite Backing
  • Ligthweight
  • Designed to Last 10+ Years Outdoors
