Solar Blanket 150W foldable Solar Panel – 1830×700
When you’re travelling off the beaten track and need to be able to rely on your solar panels, this 150w heavy duty solar mat is your absolute best choice. It is made with certified A-grade monocrystalline solar cells with solid copper cell backing, extra-thick 1680D canvas and our exclusive Crocskin® cell armour. Now compatible with all types of lithium batteries including LiFePO4, Li4Ti5O12 and Li-ion, as well as AGM, Gel, Calcium and Wet cell batteries.
When you’re out camping, particularly when you’re travelling through remote country, you must be able to rely on your solar panel. If your panel fails it can mean disaster for your trip – in some cases even having to cut it short or travel many kilometres to find a replacement.
We know how important reliable solar power is, and that’s why we’ve designed our portable solar panels to not only survive in hard conditions, but thrive in them. We’ve specified the highest quality materials, prototyped and tested obsessively, and pay constant attention to our manufacturing process to ensure our meticulous standards are maintained. That’s why we’re the only portable solar company in Australia that’s confident enough to offer a 3 year warranty on our solar mats. It’s also why we were awarded two Global Media Awards for our portable solar products at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, USA.
Our 150w Heavy Duty Portable Solar Panels are perfect to power a 1-2 person camping set up running LED lighting, a small or medium sized fridge, and a few other small electronic devices. You can connect them to a battery with the included battery clamps, or disconnect the controller and connect the panels directly to a compatible built-in regulator or DC-DC charger via the Anderson plug input.
Please note that this portable solar mat is designed for camping use, not for off-grid living. If you require a permanent fixture where the panels will be in the elements 24/7, we recommend you consider our fixed solar panels instead.

1680D ballistic nylon canvas
The outside of your solar panel and the carry bag are going to be exposed to heaps of scrapes and bumps over the years, and the canvas used to make them needs to be strong enough to handle it. For our heavy-duty solar mats we’ve specified the toughest material we could find, called 1680D Ballistic Nylon.
This heavyweight polyurethane-coated synthetic canvas was originally designed by DuPont Corporation for use by the United States military, and got the name ‘ballistic’ because it was most commonly found in anti-fragmentation ballistic jackets, before the invention of Kevlar. Nowadays it is primarily used to protect high-wear areas on products such as motorcycle gear and luggage.
Not only is 1680D Ballistic Nylon highly abrasion-resistant, it is also water-repellent. Whilst we don’t recommend you intentionally leave the panels out in a prolonged heavy downpour, they are IP64 waterproof and will not be damaged from exposure to rain.
Lithium-compatible smart regulator
This product comes bundled with our inline smart solar regulator.
This regulator will optimally charge a range of battery types, including AGM, Gel, Calcium, Wet and all lithium variants. It contains a host of smart electronics including reverse polarity protection, short circuit protection, reverse current protection, overcharge protection and more.
Its large, backlit LCD screen provides useful information relating to power input and battery charge level, and inbuilt LEDs provide a quick-reference indicator of battery charge status.
It also has the ability to automatically ‘wake up’ a lithium that has been put into sleep mode after the over-discharge protection circuit has been tripped. Simply connect the regulator to the battery and it will deliver special small-current pulses until the battery has recovered enough to be charged normally.
The Crocskin® difference
Sitting under the baking hot sun for many hours at a time means solar mats are exposed to large quantities of ultraviolet light and generate a significant amount of heat every time they are used. The materials used in the construction of the mat must be resistant to both, as well as being flexible and impact resistant.
Our exclusive Crocskin® cell armour coating has been specifically designed with this in mind. It provides an excellent protective barrier to the solar cells, increasing their durability and lifespan.
In fact, our Crocskin® coating showed no signs of deterioration after an accelerated weathering test that simulated 30 years’ sun exposure.
