Solar is a great alternative.
The 150 watt folding solar panel is ready for battery charging. Also to use as a solar generator.
One can also use it as a battery maintainer to prevent batteries from complete drainage.
Dokio supplies the Monocrystalline portable solar module. It exists in 4 smaller solar panels. This is a suitcase kit with an own handle to carry, it is portable, quick to set up, and easy to transport.
They use Monocrystalline silicon cells with high conversion
The four panels fold together and they use Velcro to hold it closed. It also comes with a nice and easy to use carry handle.
It also comes with a;
Three-meter cable with XT60 and SAE connectors;
One meter cable with XT60 and crocodile clips;
A JY60/DC short connector;
A Dokio 12volt 10 Amp PWM charge controller.
The manufacturer uses high-performance cells that they encapsulate in EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate).
EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) is available in thin sheets.
The manufacturers insert these thin sheets between the solar cells. Also between the module and the top surface.
They also use it between the module and the back surface.

Current at Pmax (Imp): 8.89A.
Open-circuit voltage (Voc): 22.5V.
Short-circuit current (Isc): 9.14A.
Operating temperature: -40°C to 85°C.
Open: 85inch x 22inch x 0.55 inches. (57cm x 54cm x 1.4cm.)
Folded: 22inch×21 inch×1.1 inches. 57cm x 54cm x 2.8cm.)
Package Weight: 4.1kg (9lbs.) (including wire and controller.)
It can work either as a solar panel without utilizing the charge controller.
This is for charging power stations;
(You connect PV via SAE connectors to 3m cable. After that the 3m cable via XT60/JY60 connection to the short connector.
Then the short connector via DC connector to the power station.)
Or as solar panel kit by making use of the controller for battery charging and USB devices;
(You connect PV via SAE connectors to 3m cable, then 3m cable via XT60 connection to charge controller.
Then the charge controller via XT60 connector to 1m cable.
Then the one-meter cable via battery clips to the battery.)
Camping and off-roading;
RV while dry Camping;
Power Acopower coolers;
Charging your car battery;
In emergencies shine a light on your shed;
Remember we should always connect the battery first. Then the load and last the 150 watt foldable solar panel.
When disconnecting us do it a panel, load, and last the battery.
Working voltage: 12Volt.
Working current: 10 Amps.
USB Output Ports: 5Volt/2Amp.
Working Mode: PWM Charging.
Weight: 0.145 Kg.
IP Rating: No, not waterproof.
Some people want a longer cord for the alligator clips.
There was criticism that the fixing eyelets are too flimsy.
The module comes without stands, but it has grommet holes to hang it for better positioning.
It is important to keep the controller dry. It is water-resistant, but not waterproof.
This 150 watt folding solar panel is water-resistant. Over time saltwater will damage it.
Take care and exercise preventative maintenance to ensure the longevity of this module.
The XT60 connectors on the cables to the controller are very convenient. It works easier than screw terminals, but it can be a matter of taste.
The solar module is super practical, it is easy to unfold and operate. It is also quick and easy to fold and stow away.
This 150 watt folding solar panel comes with a 90% output warranty for 12 years.
After that an 80% output warranty for 25 years.
The solar panel and charge controller work well.
It is flexible, easy to use, easy to fold, easy to carry, and easy to store away in a limited space.
The 150 watt folding solar panel comes at a relatively low cost.
