The 5-Watt SolarPulse Charging System provides a full 5-Watts of power in a compact, durable 8.8''L x 8.8''W x 0.25''H solar panel. That's almost half the size of solar panels used in other solar chargers so that you have the most installation options for your vehicle or equipment. The solar panel replaces the power loss from electrical accessories that occurs in seldom used outdoor vehicles even when the ignition is switched off. It also replaces the power loss from vehicles that experience short run times between stops, high loads at idle and parasitic drain.
Like all of our SolarPulse models, the 5-Watt model utilizes our unrivaled solar charging system combined with our patented optimized high frequency pulsing circuit, Pulse Technology, to ensure your batteries will start when you need them and last up to five times longer. Pulse Technology reverses the naturally occurring process of battery sulfation - the main cause of battery failure. This allows batteries to accept, store and release maximum power all the time extending battery life up to five times.
If you've used solar chargers before, you know it's important to choose the right solar panel for the amount of power you need and the size and place of the mounting location. In the past to get the power you need, you had to struggle with panels that are too big, too bulky and too fragile. With SolarPulse, you can get the power you need with the most installation options for your outdoor vehicles or equipment. SolarPulse's higher efficiency, higher quality crystalline silicone cells pack more power per square inch and have a longer life than standard amorphous ''thin film'' cells. That means you can get the power you need in a sturdier, smaller-sized solar panel.
Since the solar cells are placed directly on a low profile aluminum panel instead of a thicker, bulkier metal frame, you can flush mount the solar panel so it has less chance of being accidentally damaged.
Instead of a breakable glass coating, SolarPulse's solar panels are protected with a clear polyurethane plastic coating that makes them virtually indestructible and impervious to weather aging and damage from bumps and knocks.
If your vehicle contains multiple 12V batteries in parallel, the SP-5 is able to maintain up to four 12V batteries in parallel.
