Maximizing Your Charge From The Sun - How BioLite Tech Achieves 100% Capacity

1. Direct Connect with the Optimal Sun System: Misaligning your solar panel can lead to losing up to 30% of watts available. Our sundial aligns you directly to the sun while the 360 kickstand helps you keep it in the right spot on any terrain

2.  Maximum Power Point Tracking: BioLite software enables you to draw as much power as possible without overloading the system. The result is faster charge times and no crashes.

3.  Thin Profiles of Cool Panels Panels lose efficiency when they heat up – so we made our panel ultra-thin with minimal materials to dissipate heat quickly.


What is the difference between the SolarPanel 5 and the SolarPanel 5+?

The SolarPanel 5+ has a 2200mAh onboard battery which can store energy for later. It is also USB-rechargeable if you want to charge the panel before you head out into the sun! The SolarPanel 5 does not have an onboard battery, so it only charges your device if it is in the sun.
