Solar is a great alternative.
Folding solar panels are handy
to use when you are a person that want to generate power when moving around.
The folding panels are not
meant for permanent installations.
These panels are very flexible
because they are easy to carry. It is easy to transport, fold and unfold these
modules. They also take up little space when folded and packed away.
Most of these panels come with
carrying handles and often a nice bag for storage and carrying. Generally, you
can expect them to have legs for easy setup. Some come with hooks to hang.
In short, manufacturers try to
make these folding panels as convenient as possible. This is for easy setup and
ease of handling.
The foldable solar modules are
smaller than permanent solar panels. They do come in different types though.
The folding modules come with
varying power outputs. You can charge different devices, and in many instances
at the same time.
Tablets and digital cameras.
As well as all other outdoor activities.
The panels are not waterproof they are only water-resistant. It is best not to leave them wet for long periods.
To avoid any damage, it is good
practice to store the folding panels in a cool dry environment.
Folding solar panels are less
efficient than ground or roof-mounted systems. You lose a bit of solar cell
space due to the hinges needed for folding purposes.
The rigid type of folding solar panels come with a warranty of up to 25 years.
Warranties on the folding ones
that are not rigid can be shorter than 25 years. Warranty periods can vary, but
are seldom less than 12 years.
Folding solar panels are handy, efficient, and very versatile. Determine your mobile requirements and you will find a suitable folding module.
