SolarBar features 4(or 8 best solar panels on the market that absorb and convert sunlight to the power you need for all your devices at extremely high efficiency. It also comes with a detachable 10000mAh power bank that reserves the solar to charge your gadgets when there is insufficient sunlight. The power bank offers 10W Qi wireless and up to 18W QC3.0 charging to a maximum of 4 devices simultaneously. It has a built-in LED light that serves as a nightlight for emergency situations. SolarBar is rugged, portable and weather-resistant, designed to charge while you are on the move.  


SolarBar is made with quality monocrystalline solar panels from LG or Sunpower using an innovative Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) solar cell technology to achieve higher efficiency of up to 22.5%, which makes SolarBar capable of providing up to 30% more power compared to traditional cells. It is powerful enough to harness solar energy with diminished sunlight.  

We offer 2 solar power versions: 10W Portable & 20W High Power Edition. The 20W solar panel will provide a charging speed comparable to wall charging. 


 SolarBar comes with a removable 10000mAh power bank which can be fully charged through the 4 solar panels at a total of 10W in about 5~5.6 hours and through the 8 solar panels at a total of 20W in about 3.5~4 hours. Four LED flash to indicate the battery life remaining. You can leave SolarBar on the windowsill while you are seeing to other tasks, on the dash of the car for your morning commute, or on the ground when you are enjoying outdoor activities. During night on your camping trip or tackling adventures in thick woods, you can always keep your devices charged using the power bank in case of emergencies. 


SolarBar’s battery has built-in Lightning, USB-C and Micro-USB charging cables, one USB output port and an internal Qi wireless charging mat, so it can charge up to four devices at the same time while it is being recharged using the solar panels. 

Its charging port and cables support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, which are able to power up your devices at a whopping 3A/18W max. 

Its embedded Qi wireless charger enables compatible devices to wireless charge up to 2x faster at 10W. 


SolarBar provides a clean, sustainable, environmentally friendly and free source of energy to your mobile phone, tablet, GoPro, kindle, camera, drone, speaker, headphone, almost all your devices. 

When the battery is removed, it can be conveniently carried around to provide wired & wireless charges to your devices on the go. It can also be recharged by plugging a cable into its Micro-USB input port which supports QC3.0 at 3A/18W max. Its integrated charging cables preclude you from carrying extra cables. 




The built-in smart IC chip helps identify each device plugged in and helps determine the optimal charging speed, which maximizes overall battery life, as well as intelligently prevents devices from overcharging or overheating. 


SolarBar 4 panels weighs 0.67 pounds and measures only 3.7” x 6.9” x 1.5” when folded. SolarBar 8 panels weighs 1.17 pounds and measures only 3.7” x 6.9” x 2.1” when folded. Power bank weighs 0.68 pounds. SolarBar is an ideal combination of portability and power that can keep you going for days.  


The incorporated LED light is a desirable addition that can double as a torch giving you adjustable visibility or an emergency SOS-strobe light with two flashing modes. 



SolarBar’s rugged canvas can withstand high humidity and splashes. The panels are PET laminated for high light transmission, water-resistant, scratch-resistant and attractive appearance and are tolerant of withering and warping during long exposure to the sunlight. 



 SolarBar is an effective and reliable charging solution specifically for outdoor use, such as when you are camping, hiking, backpacking around the country or just having lunch in the park. SolarBar gives your gear an energy boost before you head out on your adventure.

Risks and challenges

Currently, we see an optimized and efficient supply chain as our biggest challenge. Supply must be balanced with increasing production while simultaneously optimizing stability. With that said, we are literally next door to a lot of our suppliers (with whom we already have contracts). Problems will be reported immediately and fixed soon after. we will already have completed small trial production and testing. The plan is to then send samples and test-printers out to users ASAP.

All mass production will inevitably encounter obstacles and stumbling blocks. What is important is having the knowledge, experience, and drive to overcome them. We are confident that everyone in the SolarBar team has all of this in spades.
