How portable solar panels can help you in a disaster
Disaster can strike at any time, whether it is an earthquake, a flood, a hurricane or a forest fire. When that happens, the power supply can be disrupted or even fail completely, leaving you without electricity for your essential appliances and needs. Think of your phone, your laptop, your refrigerator, your medical equipment, your lights and much more.
Fortunately, there is a way to prepare for such a scenario and be self-sufficient in energy: portable solar panels. Portable solar panels are compact and lightweight devices that capture and store solar energy in a built-in battery, which you can then use to charge or power your devices from a wall outlet, a USB port or a 12V outlet.
Portable solar panels have many advantages over traditional generators or batteries when it comes to disaster preparedness. Here are some of the most important:
They are environmentally friendly and durable
They use no fossil fuels, produce no exhaust fumes or noise, and reduce your carbon footprint.
They are independent of the power grid
You don’t have to worry about power outages, fuel shortages or high electricity bills. You can generate and use your own energy wherever the sun shines.
They are easy to use and maintain
Just place them in the sun and turn them on with one button. They require no complicated wiring or installation and require little to no maintenance.
They are versatile and powerful
You can use them for all kinds of devices, from laptops to coolers to sound systems. Some models can even power devices up to 800W, which is enough for most household appliances.
They are quick to charge and have a long service life
Depending on the model and weather conditions, they can be fully charged within a few hours with solar power or via mains power with an adapter. They can also be connected to additional solar panels to increase charging speed. Moreover, they last for thousands of charging cycles, making them a good long-term investment.
One of the best portable solar panels on the market is the Mobisun Pro Air, a portable solar panel with battery and socket 230V / 300W / 148Wh / 40,000 mAh. This is a portable solar generator developed and manufactured in the Netherlands with high-quality components, such as a 29W SunPower solar panel, a LiFePO4 battery and a pure sine wave inverter.
The Mobisun Pro Air has many features that make it ideal for disaster preparedness, including:
- It is lightweight and portable (only 3.6 kg), making it easy to transport and store.
- It has a high output (300W continuous, 600W max), making it suitable for laptops, sound systems, cooking equipment, coolers, etc.
- It has a large energy content (148Wh), allowing it to provide power for long periods of time without recharging.
- It has a simple central on/off button and a waterproof socket, making it user-friendly and safe.
- It has an intelligent display, allowing you to read battery capacity, incoming and outgoing power and time remaining.
- It has a pass through charging function, allowing it to charge and discharge at the same time, so you can use the solar power generated immediately.
- It is rechargeable through the built-in 29W solar panel or through the mains with the included adapter, giving you flexibility in your power source.
- It can be charged extra fast via Mobisun’s complementary 100W or 60W solar panels, allowing you to increase its charging capacity.
With the Mobisun Pro Air, you can have 230V power anytime, anywhere, even in the event of a disaster. It is a universally applicable device that makes you self-sufficient and resilient. It’s a portable solar panel you don’t want to miss in your emergency kit.
