Mobile solar panel power portable equipment

The lightweight, 5W, mobile photovoltaic panel has an integrated sun-angle adjuster for maximum solar exposure. The rated efficiency is up to 22%. The panel is constructed with monocrystalline cells that have a wide spectral sensitivity (300 to 1100nm) and can be used either indoors or outdoors. It weighs 60g and measures 223 x 143 x 2mm. The panels can be assembled in series and/or parallel to achieve a desired output power.

Rated at 5.39W (the maximum peak power), it is suitable for charging mobile consumer electronic devices as well as industrial ones. Voltage and current at the maximum power output are 5.5V and 0.98A, respectively. Typical applications include, among others, battery chargers for smart phones, tablets, and notebooks, backup power for UPS and wireless sensors, street/park lighting, emergency backup power, and independent green power stations.
