Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Power your life, even when there's no outlet in sight - Brunton's Solaris 52 Solar Charger uses CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide) technology to create a super-efficient, foldable, lightweight, high-output power source. Charge your video or still camera, laptop, or even your vehicle battery with 12-volt output. solarsolar

When other companies tell you their portable solar panels can power a laptop, prove them wrong by stacking theirs up against the Brunton Solaris 52 12V Foldable Solar Panel. Either that or you can just knock them out with it. The truth is that while most solar panels can charge an external battery that, in turn, can power high-draw electronics, it takes them hours to do it and in the wilderness, time is often precious. The Solaris 52's eighteen CIGS panels can DIRECTLY power high performance 12-volt accessories in bright sunlight, and can also charge storage batteries quickly in low light conditions that won't bring a trickle from smaller units. It's flexible, splashproof, and it folds down for travel to the size of a thick textbook. From sat-phones to laptops and digital SLR cameras, there is simply no way to get the same amount of power without plugging into a wall socket. Yes, it is expensive, but when your off-the-grid expedition requires immediate power, the Brunton Solaris 52 is the fastest way to get it.
