PORTABLE ENERGY - BATTERY & SOLAR
On our last dry camping trip we took the Jackery 240 and logged every time we used it. We compiled the data and these are the results along with a quick review of the Jackery solar generator and solar panel. We use the Jackery 60 watt solar panel and find it easily offsets our power consumption as long as we have a few hours of good sun. Its compact size make it a great little system!
Jackery 240 Power Station
We’ve built a solar battery box. This portable generator will find a home in our Roof Top Tent Trailer to power lights and cooler fridge. We use a Solar Suitcase to keep this box charged. The battery box will be portable making it easy to use for emergencies at home. We go through a step by step build process, along with the parts and tools needed to build the battery box.
Building a DIY Power Station
We tackled the challenge of powering our RoofTop Tent Trailer during camping expeditions with the addition of the Renogy Solar Suitcase. Faced with the energy demands of a new fridge/freezer cooler that outstripped the capabilities of our Jackery 240, we opted for the Renogy battery after extensive research. Pairing it with the Solar Suitcase, we aimed to ensure an ample and sustainable power supply.
