Application

Either use it as as a solar module without the controller. 

Charge power station with own built-in controllerCharge power station with own built-in controller.

This is to charge stations;

 PV via SAE connectors to the 3m cable. Then 3m cable via XT60/JY60  to the short connector.

Now short connection via the  DC connection to the power station.)

Also use as solar  kit by using the controller charge batteries  and various USB devices;

Battery charging via a charge controllerBattery charging via a charge controller.

(Connect PV via SAE  to 3m cable, the 3m cable via XT60  to thecontroller.

Now the charger  via XT60 connector to the1m cable.

Then the one-meter cable using battery clips to the battery.)

The Charge Controller

Charge Controller with 2 X USB portsCharge Controller with 2 X USB ports.
  • It comes with a 10A 12 volt PWM controller. 

  • The controller  is to protect the batteries when charging.

  • Make use of the XT60 connectors for charging a solar generator with the charge controller. 

  • The controller uses two  5 volts 2 amps USB ports for charging small devices.

  • You can use the controller to charge 5volt devices via the USB ports. You do not have to connect the battery when doing so.

  • Extension cable is available to buy if the need arises. 

How to connect

First you connect the battery, now the load  and then the module.

When you disconnect  it is panel,  and then load followed by the battery.

Operating the 150 watt folding solar module

  • Find a spot with proper sunshine. Avoid sun blocking objects. 

  • Unfold the  panels and let it face the sun.

  • Adjust panels to reach maximum output during the day.

  • Connect the + and - wires as the  prescription indicates.

  • Read all safety precautions before operating.

  • Avoid short circuits, do battery connections correct.

  • Remember anything that covers the surface will reduce output.

Benefits

  • The 150-watt folding solar panel is foldable and lightweight. It is a brease to carry with the practical carrying handle the manufacturer includes. It is also a nice small size when you fold it.

  • The module comes with a handle and a strong for extras.

  • High conversion efficiency.

  • The 150 Watt folding solar module is low mass, small and carrying and transporting is easy.

  • This charge controller comes with a LED display that is informative and easy to read.t.

  • The panels perform as quoted.

  • You need little instruction to easily set up the plugin cables.

  • Storing is easy  when folded.

  • The 150 watts folding solar panel is well protected in a pocket that is made from strong fabric.

  • You can use the module in harsh weather conditions. Rain, snow, extreme cold, or very strong winds.

  • Due to its flexibility, you can open and put it on an uneven surface without damaging it.

  • You can use the fixing eyelets to hold it in position during strong winds.

  • The solar panel does not have a hard shell-like many competitors. You can place it without having to be afraid that it will damage anything while driving.

  • The Dokio team provides excellent after-sale service.

Disadvantages of the 150 watt folding solar panel

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.

To Mention

This 150 watt folding solar panel is water-resistant. Over time saltwater will damage it.

Do proper maintenance and be sure the  module will last for many years.

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.

Warranty

This 150 watt folding solar panel  comes with a 90% output warranty for 12 years.

After that an 80% output warranty for 25 years.

In a conclusion

The solar panel and charge controller work so good.

The 150 watt portable solar module comes at a relatively low cost.
