Brunton SolarRoll Flexible Solar Panel -

Our drive and desire to pioneer a line of rugged power sources led to the introduction of the first flexible solar panel, the SolarRoll by Brunton. Since then, the evolution of this concept has flourished. Backed by glowing reviews in every major magazine and newspaper in this country and others, the SolarRoll has officially taken its place as one of our most talked about products. The proof, though, is in the remarkable performance. The waterproof SolarRoll has given sea kayakers the power to photograph their voyages from the far reaches of the planet. And next spring, it will assist Ed Viesturs in his final summit, Annapurna, as he polishes off the last peak of Endeavor 8000. Ideal for powering satellite phones, members of expeditions worldwide pack the SolarRoll in place of expensive extra batteries that don't offer much relief in the form of weight. We realize however, that not everyone is defying the ordinary. Some of us simply need the SolarRoll for charging our car battery or running our video camera. With this in mind, we're offering alternative sizes and outputs this year to accommodate the growing demand for our most popular solar panel.

Roll the Brunton Solar Roll up like a poster and stuff it in your backpack or luggage. This rugged portable solar panel charges your digital camera, camcorder, GPS, and satellite phone. Expedition members no longer need to pack heavy batteries for their worldwide journeys. Choose from the 4.5-watt, 9-watt, or 14-watt Solar Roll—all of them are waterproof, come with a carrying tube, and have built-in reverse-flow protection. These flexible solar panels have amorphous solar cells, which work great in overcast or indirect light. The 14-watt Solar Roll is the best option for charging laptops, though the lower-wattage options will trickle charge it.

Brunton SolarRoll Flexible Solar Panel Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I used this for 10 days on snow in the Arctic this spring and it worked well. It stores nicely wrapped around your sleeping pad or bag. I used it to charge a Brunton Impel Portable Power Device and it operated as advertised. I attached the roll to the outside of the tent and put the power unit inside. We had bright/direct sun and it juiced the device right up, better than I was expecting. Didn't try it on overcast days so can't speak of how limited it's use is there.

Negative Reviews:

I had a 9-watt roll for a summer. Planned on using it on the John Muir Trail to recharge my camcorder and other gear. The device worked "ok" in testing, but in real life use out in the mountains, the performance was rather unacceptable. It took over 4 hours in direct sunlight to charge two AA batteries (ok, could be the charger not being designed for the low current, but it still was impossible to spend half a day to charge batteries the GPS would chew through in a day). The camcorder batteries took about 4 hours to charge, but discharged more rapidly thana wall-charged. Worst of all, you had to keep the panel flat on the ground during the peak sun hours of the day to get any charging power. Draped over your backpack, it didn't do anything. Unless you are staying put in one place for long periods of time, this is not the device you want. It may be durable, but the charging performance for its size was not enough for my needs. I've switched to AA lithium batteries and saved pounds from my pack. You need to carry more than just this panel - all your gizmos need their car chargers, too, and that adds up. Instead, I now bring gear that is exclusively powered by AA and my pack weight is down, no hassle with charging breaks, and no worries when it is rainy.
