Camping Power - Portable Solar Power Packs

Posted by

Battery boxes, solar set up and portable camping power

With most portable solar camping solutions available to campers today you’ll definitely have to do your research and in some cases, you’ll need to source the individual components yourself. It can really be a bit too hard and if not done properly, will potentially leave you stranded without power or even worse, with a faulty electrical set-up. 

Some of the things to consider will be;

  • the battery
  • battery box
  • solar panels
  • MPPT charge controller and solar regulator
  • extension cables for the unit and the panels (as they are usually never long enough)
  • AC inverter and what outlets will you need
  • pure sine or not 

as well as navigating your way through plugs, adapters and sockets… 

WOW – what an effort!

This got the CampKings crew to asking;

"Why isn’t there a portable solar camping power solution that is affordable, easy to use, includes everything you need and is and efficient & light weight"?

Well, there are a few options on the market but most will be heavy in weight and pretty costly. They will require some form of battery maintenance like constant charging and not letting them run below 80% capacity to ensure that your battery doesn’t die in the periods of time that you are not off on a camping adventure. 

And, they don’t always include everything you need to just set-up, put the panels out and start powering up your camp site…

If you are after the most efficient and cost effective, low maintenance, easy portable solar power solution for your next camping adventure then you should consider the EasyPower S630. Just plug in the panels, place them in the sun and you’re powered up!

The EasyPower S630 offers;

  • A powerful all in one 3.3kg light-weight power box
  • Included 2kg light-weight highly efficient 80W sunpower cell solar blanket
  • 10m cable to connect the panels to the EasyPower unit
  • 73ah (270wh) high capacity LiPo lithium battery built in
  • AC | DC and 4 x USB outlets to charge and run your electricals
  • 300W pure sine wave inverter to protect your equipment
  • Solar, AC wall and DC car charging options
  • LED light with 5m cable and an on | off switch
  • Built in MPPT charge controller and protection

This is the most innovative and functional portable solar power camping option and is a serious contender in the market, to be considered by those looking for a great quality and cost effective portable power solution that will change the way that you bring power to your camp site for years to come.
