What is a Solar Generator?  Well it's a fancy term for a combo unit that contains a lithium battery and built-in Inverter with various plugs (DC, USB, AC). Jackery builds different sized units all the way up to 1000 if you need a bunch of power.

We have the Jackery 240 and primarily use it to charge phones, cameras and power camp LED lights at night. Using the 60w Solar panel to charge the Jackery provides plenty of power as long as we have a few hours of sun. 

The Jackery allows you to charge from the solar panel while you are charging devices. This is handy when it comes to power hungry devices like laptops.

Jackery has updated the 60w solar panel we use to match the larger 100w version. It now uses just 2 panels and folds up nicely for protection during travel. 

The Solar panels are super easy to use. All you need to do is unfold the panels, point them into the sun and plug in the provided cord directly into the Jackery. The display on the Jackery will tell you how many watts are being added to the batteries. 

As a bonus they include a USB & USB-C connector directly on the back of the solar panel. This lets you charge your phone or other device directly off of the charger.
