Upgraded My Personal Solar Setup
Sunday, January 23, 2022
Last Spring 2021, I made a decision to upgrade our beach camping solar power options by picking up this setup from Jackery:
Portable Power Station Explorer 240 + SolarSaga 100W Portable Solar Panel
And then in June, I had this idea why not use this setup at home day-to-day to power up the following devices (vice using a power plug), and stay off the grid:
- Samsung Galaxy S10+ (cellphone)
- Garmin Fenix 3 HR (watch)
- iPad Pro 11‑inch (2018 tablet)
- Apollo Wearable
- Go Pro Hero 4
So, since June I have not plugged any of these personal devices into a home power plug that was pulling power over the grid.
However, I was starting to notice that the Jackery solar panel was starting to take some sun/weather damage. So I did some research, and upgraded to:
Renogy Solar Panel + SolarEnz Solar Connector
The Renogy panel is significantly more weather resistant and should allow me to re-charge the Jackery with the SolarEnz cord much easier.
This is working great. I'm very happy.
