Benefits of portable solar panels for your next camping trip

When planning your next camping trip you may wonder how you are going to power some of your essential appliances and accessories?  Camping is a time to get away from it all, but these days there are some valuable accessories; such as fridges, camping lights or even your mobile that can make your camping trip more comfortable. 

Generators have always been a popular choice for camping enthusiasts but that seems to be changing.  Generators require fuel, emit harmful fumes, and often require maintenance.  Plus they can be extremely noisy disrupting the peace and tranquility for anyone near them. In fact generators are not allowed in national parks and even some caravan parks ban their use.

That’s where solar power steps in. Portable solar panels kits are ideal for camping and give you flexibility to camp where you want and for how long, without having to use a generator. If you haven’t considered using portable solar panels while camping, then have a quick read of some of the benefits, they may change your mind.

  • Solar power is a renewable carbon neutral source of clean natural energy, making them environmentally friendly.
  • They are a silent source of power so you and your camping neighbours can continue to enjoy the tranquility while running your appliances.
  • Saves you money as it’s free power from the sun, there are also generally no maintenance costs and you can avoid fees for powered sites.
  • Using solar power can give you greater flexibility when camping as you can camp wherever you want without sacrificing using your appliances.
  • Solar panels are easy to use and convenient solution to power.  They are available in portable kits so you can take them camping with you and set them up easily.
  • Having a power source when you are in the middle of nowhere can help keep you safe.  If you happened to get lost or there was an emergency, solar power will allow you to use a communication device to get help.

It’s important to think about whether you need power when camping and we understand that it can be quite confusing with all the options now available.  We are more than happy to help you work out your energy requirements and find the best solution for you. 

One popular kit we recommend is the 120 Watt Monocrystalline Portable Folding Solar Panel Kit from Kamper King, which we currently have in stock.  Feel free to visit our showroom at 1421 Main North Rd, Para Hills West or call us on 08 8281 6696.
