The 6W SolarCru is a durable, efficient and incredibly lightweight panel. It is great for small charging tasks. With SolarCru, you no longer need to trade-off either size or capacity when it comes to choosing your solar panels. You can connect up to three SolarCru panels together to almost triple the original output to 15W. Apart from its reasonable price, you will be impressed by its ability to charge your devices quickly, thereby making it your pick for best buy. It’s exceptionally compact, light and rugged build up makes it ideal for those who want to keep their devices charged during outdoor activities such as long hikes, camping, tailgating or while spending a day in the park. It can also store up to 2000 mAh either by using Solar power or USB charging. The SolarCru panel has the following features:
Made with the most powerful and attractive mono-crystalline panels available, SolarCru works perfectly in converting the ubiquitous energy from the sun into electrical energy to power your gadgets. The solar panels are filmed with fluoropolymer, the best light transmission that can be found in the market. Thus, SolarCru can harvest and convert solar energy to electrical energy efficiently even when it is partly blocked on a cloudy day. It also self charge using Solar Power as well.
You can have up to three SolarCru connected together through the cascading port to act collectively to convert solar energy into electricity more efficiently (5V/3A, 15W), thereby making it more suitable to power larger device.
*This is an estimation.Values may vary according to your devices and different conditions such as an overcast sky, shadows, improper mounting angle, equatorial direction and short winter days.
SolarCru performs adequately when charging small wattage devices such as cell phone, flashlight, GPS unit, speaker, and tablet with its external battery pack. External battery is an essential in the SolarCru. It allows the panel to charge the battery during the day while you are using your gadgets and also allows you to charge your gadgets at night via the external battery.
With an advance in technology, we have made tremendous leaps and bounds in the construction of SolarCru. It weighs in at about 0.52 lbs without battery and 0.7 lbs with battery. It measures merely 2.9 x 9.6 x1.2 inches when unfolded. It is a small solar panel when compared to its counterpart of the same capacity and rating.
When folded, it can nicely fit into a bag or a jacket pocket for easy transportation on long trips.
USB port and other important components are designed on the side of the last solar panel compartment. It is also within a protective case which also serves as a magnetic clasp that binds the rolled-up panels together in order to avoid wear and tear.
A built-in intelligent chip identifies each device plugged in and automatically adjusts the energy output to provide the right amount of power which optimizes the charging quality and maximizes the overall battery life. It also offers multiple protections against overcharge, over-current and overload.
The paper-thin SolarCru is your best choice for any adventure where weight is a concern. Whether you're hiking, camping, on the train, on an excursion, in the city or on the mountains, it is a perfect fit! Corner grommets allow the unit to be strapped down your backpack or hung up on a tent for charging via sunlight.
SolarCru is composed of PET laminated scratch-resistant solar panels. It is also made of a water and weather resistant canvas protective fabric that guards the inner portion of the panels. SolarCru is tolerant of withering and warping during long exposure to the sunlight. It’s ruggedly built to go wherever the road takes you.
The LED light which lights up as an indicator of effective solar charging helps you determine and modify the solar panel to the appropriate charging position more conveniently.
Where there is sun, there is power. With SolarCru solar panel charger, you’ll never find yourself caught off-guard by low battery levels on your smartphones and other small gadgets ever again.
You can charge SolarCru either by letting it absorb light energy from the sun or by connecting it directly to a wall or USB Charging outlet. The Upgraded SolarCru can be a 2000 mAh power bank when there is no solar power. (The Regular SolarCru does not have battery)
We are the SolarCru Team, a group of tech lovers dedicated to bring Solar Energy into everyone's life.
Our team is made up of experts. We set out to create a product that people can use in their daily life, using the best solar tech. With this mission, we designed and brought SolarCru - a smallest and lightest foldable solar panel charger.
