Sunlinq solar panels by Global Solar are high quality, durable and weatherproof portable solar panels that use thin-film photovoltaic technology (PowerFLEX™) - a technology that has a proven track record in space and military applications and is now also available to the general public.
At 11ozs (312gms) and a compact 5"x9" when folded, the 12 watt Sunlinq 4 is the perfect size to slip into a pocket, glove compartment or just about anywhere. When open, the Sunlinq 4 is 18 x 29 inches.
This lightweight 12 watt Sunlinq solar charger is ideal for keeping any of your portable electronics charged (laptop computer, iPad, satellite phone, cell phone, GPS unit, iPod, PDA, etc.). Since the Sunlinq 4 has a built-in blocking diode and voltage limiter to prevent battery discharge and over voltage of the device being charged, many small electronics can be charged directly with this panel. However, there is a definite advantage to purchasing a solar panel/powerpack combination as the powerpack will provide power at night and during periods of inclement weather. We recommend that a solar panel/powerpack combination be used to charge laptop computers as it is the safest and most effective way to power a computer. Backup-Power.ca has larger powerpacks available as well, however one of the most popular powerpack/solar panel options for laptops is a Sunlinq solar panel with the Tekkeon MyPower ALL 3450 or MyPower ALL 3450i.
Sunlinq 4 and Tekkeon MyPowerALL (MP3450 or MP3450i) Combination
The Sunlinq 4 can be used to charge the Tekkeon MyPowerALL powerpack directly with solar power. The Tekkeon MyPowerALL will provide power for small electronics as well as laptop computers. The advantage of having both the Tekkeon MyPowerALL and a Sunlinq 12 W solar charger is that the Tekkeon MyPowerALL is a source of power during the evening or inclement weather. This combination will also allow you to power most laptop computers that use up to 80 watts of power. Contact us to determine the right portable solar panel / Powerpack solution for you.
