Three Available Solaris with Maximum Outputs of 26, 12 or 6 watts



The next generation of Solaris foldable solar technology is here.  The Brunton Solaris foldable solar panels are high efficiency CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide) solar cell arrays that can produce up to 26, 12 or 6 Watts of voltage regulated solar power.   They are ideal for field use, with rugged, lightweight, flexible construction that can stand up to the elements.

CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide) is the most efficient thin film solar technology available. By maximizing performance while optimizing portability, it makes Solaris the most compact high output models available.

Solaris 26 Features
  • 12V output for charging laptops or running cameras and DVD players
  • Overall dimensions open: 21.5x37.5
  • Overall dimensions folded: 11"x8.5x1
  • Weight: 28 oz
  • Max output: 26 watts

Solaris 12 Features

  • Overall dimensions open: 29x17.5
  • Weight: 11 oz
  • Max output: 12 watts

Adaptor cables that come with Solaris

  • Female Cigarette Lighter Adaptor
  • Aligator Clips
  • Multi-Connector

Use with Laptop Computer

Laptop computers generally require 50 to 70 watts of DC power at 15V to 24V, depending on make and model.  A single Solaris  26 therefore cannot independently power a laptop.  However, it can be used to recharge a laptop battery with the laptop turned off (4 - 6 hours recharge time), or slow the drain of the laptop battery, if connected while the laptop is turned on.

To use the Solaris 26 with a laptop you need to purchase a 12V cigarette lighter adaptor that is made to work with your specific laptop.  Connect this to the power input of the computer and to the female cigarette lighter adaptor (included with Solaris) that connects to the Solaris.  The laptop cigarette lighter adaptor will adjust the voltage from the Solaris to the proper level to work with your laptop battery.

Solar Controller, below, recommended for use with Solaris 26 when used for long-term charging of storage battery.
