    really cool i saw you talk about it on the solar battery for camping that is a cool devise

    where did u get that battery and how many ah

  3. #3 by gfanguy at March 30th, 2008

    i purchased the battery at Academy. They sell them as lattern replacement batteries.
    8 AH cost about $17.00. I have two of them and use them allot going camping.
    I have allso found that UPS for computers have these batteries in some of the APC models as well.

    i have use this sunlinq flexable solar system allot. its great for charging any 12 volt system. it puts out about 800 ma.

    Great video. Would that be able to charge a Razor cell phone around 750 Mah? Can it also charge a Zune around 800 Mah? I just bought a Brunton solarport 4.4 and it doesn’t charge them at all.

    Your review and demonstration was very helpful to me. Thank you.

    So since it seems you got quite a bit of experience with these panels and got all your amps and what-not straight I hope you can answer a few questions I got.
    First of I’m wondering if you think or know if one of these things would charge one of them tiny laptops, not interested in using more then one panel and it taking a long time wouldn’t matter.
    Secondly I’m wondering what I would have to do to make this thing charge my Ipod touch, what kind of adapter/transformer thing I’d need

    shouldnt you have a charge controller on your battery?

    I use a 25 watt sunlinq but need two panels if I want to power a marine radio or charge a laptop

    Nice panel, its really compact compared to many other CGIS foldable panels. I was looking at some of the brunton and some off brand CGIS panels under 10 watts and they’re huge.

    Could one of these charge a typical car battery? I realize that with the much higher number of Amp Hours it’d take more time, but i’m not sure that it would put out enough to give it more than a maintenance charge.

    this will put out 1 amp (12 watts / 12 volts) = 1 amp
    this is the same as taking a battery charger and putting the setting on 1 amp for a charge. yes it will take longer to charge .
    if you want more amps you need to but the larger pannels are combine in parallel the solar pannels to give you more amps.
    in this video i got 900 ma (almost an amp)

    @sirmasterpimp i love this unit, i go out on the lake in a blow up raft running a trowlling motor running off a marine 12v battery and have this unit strapped down with bunggy cords and charging the battery at the same time.

  16. #16 by GuySolar at August 6th, 2010

    @TheSolarSkater with 1 amp output i usually dont put a charge contoller for portable charges. i do on my other systems where i leave it out all day and i am usually putting out 3 to 6 amps charging power.

  17. #17 by GuySolar at August 6th, 2010

    @88Kamikaze69 ipods normally take what a usb port can put out and that is 5 volts, so you need a power converter from 12 volt to 5 volts. since it comes with a 12 volt socket you can plug your converter right into it.
    laptops norminally take 19 volts are higher and since this puts out 12 volts you would need an inverter 12 volt to 120 volt ac, but this does not put out the amps you would need to run it for long . this is only the 12 watt putting out 1 amp (12 watts / 12 volts = 1 amp)

  18. #18 by GuySolar at August 6th, 2010

    @ArmyRanger10 this unit is the 12 watt . take watts and divide volts to get amps. (12 watts / 12 volts = 1 amp)
    since your devices are below 1 amp and most phones and zune and ipods take 5 volts this will work fine. i charge my zune and ipod touch just as i would if i plugged them into a computer using the usb connection (5 volts dc)

    Thank u for reviewing that solar panel dude.

  20. #20 by trkwoodybear1969 at August 13th, 2010

    well i have to say maybe not a laptop, but those ipads show real promise at just 6 volts and hold 11 hr charge

  21. #21 by 88Kamikaze69 at August 17th, 2010

    So would you know if the Ipads have enough free apps now to actually be useufull as a tablet pc?
    I know there are a few tablet pc’s out there already but those things are just to lumpy abd unpractical.

  22. #22 by pinoykearo at August 24th, 2010

    That fan you have there is the O2 cool fan, right?
    I have the Sunlinq 6.5W solar panel.
    My question is, it says that the output this one produces is also 12V, will it work with that fan? Because I was thinking about buying a fan like that, but I don’t want to waste my money if it won’t work at all.

  23. #23 by pinoykearo at August 24th, 2010

    BTW how would you hook up those devices to the battery? Because if I can’t keep a fan running, I would like to know how to connect some devices to that battery is case of emergencies.

  24. #24 by pinoykearo at August 24th, 2010

    Sorry to bother you again.
    Am I able to use the hook up the battery clamps to the battery, attach the extension cable, and the car outlet together to plug in the devices?
