60w foldable solar panel comes with 2 portable 30-watt solar modules. This
is an all-black 60W Monocrystalline portable solar module.
Use the 60-watt panel as a solar generator or for charging batteries.
It can also be used as a battery maintainer to always top up your batteries.
Acopower is the distributor of this 60w portable solar panel.
The 60w solar module is a solar suitcase. It comes with a strong handle, and is easy to fold and carry.
Included with the 60w foldable solar panel is a protective carry bag. It is easy to transport taking minimal space.
The 60w Foldable Solar Panel Kit comes with;
Two 30-watt PV modules.
A 10A Charge Controller. (Not waterproof)
One junction box for each panel including diodes.
One Pair 14ft solar cables.
1 Pair alligator clips.
Protectors for corners.
Aluminum stand that is adjustable.
A handle and two latches contributing to make a convenient briefcase.
The portable solar panel comes with thickness at 1.2 inches folded size of 13.6 x 25.4 inches.
The weight is 21.2 lbs. (9.6kgs).
You can use the modules for many years with faultless operation.
The warranty is 25 years.
For 7 hours sunshine in the mid of summer, you will get 350 watts.
This is 7 x 60 watt = 420 watts.
You allow for 15% loss. Now you can get 420 X 85/100 = 357 Watts.
Drop the 7 and it leaves you with 350 Watt.
The 60w solar panel is best for low-amp systems. It is good for bringing power to smaller electronics away from the grid. You can charge a car battery with it, but it will take very long.
It is better to use as a battery maintainer.
Maxi power per panel :(Pmax) 30W.

Weighing: 21.2 lbs. (9.6kgs).
The 60w foldable
solar panel can work as a battery ready kit or a generator ready kit, or both;
An additional solar
panel (Max 60w) could be connected by MC4 connectors, for parallel charging;
Use it for hikes, camp, military using, solar systems, caravaning, RV, and boats;
Greenhouse solar systems;
It charges a variety of batteries.
Cargo trailer camper;
Keeps batteries topped off;
12v LED lights throughout trailer... as well as a 12v Vent fan... and a 24" TV;
Off road with jeep;
Power a CPAP;
It has a 10Amp charge controller that is a pre-installed. It is PWM (pulse width modulation.)
Use it in extreme weather conditions. It has resistance against corrosion, dust,
The controller protects the batteries. It makes it safe against surges and overcharge.
The controller is for charging 12V batteries. Use the crocodile clips to connect.
Use the MC4 cables when you want to charge a solar generator with built-in controller.
For more flexibility use an additional extension cord. You can get an 28 ft. cable from Acopower.
If you need better sunshine you can now move the 60 watt foldable solar panel to a suitable spot.
You can remove the PWM controller and replace it with a MPPT controller.
First the battery , then load and then the 60w foldable solar panel.
When you disconnect you do it the other way round.
It is better connecting before putting in direct sun. That will largely reduce the change of a malfunction.

With the 2 stands and the pre-installed wires set up becomes quick and easy.
Locate an area of proper sunlight without any obstacles to block the sun.
Unfold the two panels, direct to the sun, and It will immediately deliver power.
The LEDs indicate when charging.
Use the kickstands to adjust and direct for maximum sunlight through out the day.
Connect the positive and negative leads as prescribed.
Read all safety warnings. Only then make the 60w foldable solar panel operational.
Prevent short circuits by connecting battery clips proper..
Remember objects covering the face of the 60w solar panel can reduce output.
Three operating choices;
1) Use crocodile clips with charge controller for charging batteries.
2) You can use this 60w portable solar module for charging solar generators.
3) You can charge 2 items simultaneously.
The charge controller is not waterproof. It is only IP 30 rated.
It would be nice if they could add a small rain shield to hang down the back of the panel. This is to protect the charge controller when you get rainy conditions.
A suggestion for improvement is to provide a clearer set of user instructions.
The solar panel has a five years workmanship guarantee. As well as a twenty five year warranty for a 85% output.
The Solar Charge Controller has a 1-year warranty.
The 60w foldable solar panel from ACOPOWER is worth the cost.
The warranty and free professional engineering assistance are most welcoming.
Output power is much more than satisfactory.
