Ascent Solar is developing this portable solar blanket and battery system for military use but anticipates bringing this product to the general market as well.
Inbo Lee and CTO Joe Armstrong of EnerPlex / Ascent Solar show me how simple this 18.5V array is to unfold and use.
When the panel array is folded up with it's battery it's about 8"x16"x3" and weighs just 8.2 pounds.
It takes 2 hrs to charge this 86.5Whr Lithium Ion battery, which features 2 USB ports for connecting your devices, which will charge just as fast as they would in your home.
Of course if you can't wait until this military grade product is released to market, their current consumer models are available through EnerPlex!
The Commander Series of ruggedized portable fold out solar chargers can be paired with energy storage at various capacity and size.
The Generatr Series would come in handy during power outages, camping trips, Burning Man, and more.
