After purchasing a small mobile home earlier last year, I decided to lessen the strain on the environment (and, yes, my pocketbook) by looking into picking up a portable solar kit. I eventually decided on the Go Power! GP-RV-95 95-Watt Solar Kit with 25 Amp Digital Regulator, since its smaller size fit nicely with my smaller RV.
This solar kit purports to convert solar rays into free DC power, allowing you to charge electrical devices and batteries without relying on a permanent/grounded energy source. When you’re traveling cross country, having a reliable power source is a godsend, so I was more than happy to try this bad boy out.
The Go Power! GP-RV-95 95-Watt Solar Kit with 25 Amp Digital Regulator is one of the efficient models on the market, providing one of the highest power rates for a monocrystalline solar panel with the smallest amount of space. This particular Go Power! unit provides, on average, 5.45 amps of power per hours to charge your batteries with.
It can also produce a bit of a charge when the clouds are out and the sky is a bit dull and grey as well, although not up to the 5.45 amps of a sunny day. The kit also comes with all of the wiring and mounting hardware needed to get it up and working right out of the box.
If you’re new to the world of solar power, you may have a bit of difficulty setting the unit up, but I got the hang of it after consulting with my local automotive dealer. Maintenance is very easy, and luckily enough the kit comes with a 25 year warranty in case anything goes awry. I’ve had very good luck with mine, and haven’t had a problem as of yet. It does exactly what it says it should, and charges up my portable devices quickly and easily without having to stop and charge at an outlet.
The only downside I can see with this unit is that the size is a bit small for those needing more heavy duty charging. However, this unit is modular and easily expanded through the purchase and installation of additional panels. All in all, this thing has saved me a nice chunk of change as I travel cross-country and I couldn’t be happier with it. I give the Go Power! GP-RV-95 95-Watt Solar Kit with 25 Amp Digital Regulator my highest recommendation for anyone looking for solar power on the go.
