Choosing the Right Portable Solar Generator
A reliable solar source can help in emergency situations when natural disasters or other devastating occurrences knock your city off the grid, halting communication and inhibiting travel with scattered debris. Having the ability to power up during outages is a must to maintain a sense of normalcy and stay wired to your devices. Portable solar generators are also a great addition to any camping enthusiast's gear set, or those simply looking for an easy way to power up mobile devices outdoors, without the need for wired electricity.
The most obvious advantage of solar over fossil fuel is having unlimited power irrespective of weather, and rough conditions. Solar generators are self-sufficient and don't rely on gas to stay running. Mobility is also factor that makes solar generators more enticing. Only an easy-to-move unit will ease the burden of transport and allow you the most flexibility and enjoyment. The KaliPAK is a portable solar generator from Kalisaya, designed to satisfy your energy needs through its combined solar and battery power. You can get a nice over view of the KaliPAK and how it works with the video at this link. The KaliPAK comes in a range of 201 to 601 Wh, fully storing all the power you need while off the grid with advanced and safe lithium-ion batteries. Aside from the convenient AC/DC wall charger and car adapter (included), charge your PAK through Kalisayas high-tech solar panels. These have been designed to explicitly incorporate a new, natural, and quiet style of powered luxury. Harness the power of the sun whenever and wherever; revel in your new energy autonomous state. Keys, wallets, lights, mobile devices can also be stored in one KaliPAK, making it the best portable companion. Compatible accessories like a flood light, light bulb and power bank maximize your comfortability.
The more power you require to keep your devices running, the more solar panels and battery backup you are going to need. The size of an off-grid emergency solar power system depends on the amount of power that is required (watts), the amount of time appliances and devices are used (hours) and the amount of energy available from the sun (sun-hours per day). Prioritize your list of must-haves and how long you have to run them. Then add up the combined power requirements. Next, compare your critical power list to the total wattage of the solar generator you are considering. It is a good idea to allow for some wiggle room in your calculations. All solar panels are rated in Watts. The watt rating is how much power (amps times volts) the panel will produce in full sunlight at 25 degrees C (77F). This is the industry standard (STC) for all PV panel ratings.
