It’s no secret that adding solar to your campsite proves to be one of the easiest and efficient ways to get that extra bit of power back into your batteries so you can keep on drinking those cold beers and stay that extra night at your favourite remote destination.
But if you’re new to this concept or are only just starting to consider it, choosing the right solar solution can be confusing and even overwhelming. After all, solar technology has come such a long way that there are hundreds of brands out there in various options, sizes and prices.
So we have taken out some of the guesswork for you by creating a quiz to help you find out which solar solution is best based on your travelling lifestyle.
Two Dutch adventurists, Rinus and Helga have been fortunate enough to travel across the globe in their Troopy for the past 14 months. When they were in Australia we gave them one of our solar blankets to help power their adventures and their devices that kept them on-road and online.
In this day and age, there’s not much we can’t do if we utilise solar. On a recent 8 week trip with our Landcruiser and Ultimate camper trailer in tow, we left Adelaide to make our way to the tip of Cape York in far north Queensland. On the way, our aim was to chase down the remote and isolated tracks, rather than sticking to the conventional black top.
