With ‘solar on plastic’, the EnerPlex Kickr II™ is a weather resistant, lightweight and portable dual solar panel built to survive harsh conditions. Nylon construction makes the Kickr II rugged, and the 3W output provides a healthy charge to your mobile devices. A clip allows you to secure the Kickr on your backpack (or wherever), and a pocket holds your device as it charges through the Kickr’s USB output. Works well with Jumpr portable power banks.
How it works
Charge times from solar chargers are dependent on the amount of visible sun as well as the product you are charging.
EnerPlex solar products charge best in sunny conditions but will also operate in cloudy conditions. In cloudy conditions the charging rate will be slower. To maximize the charge rate, angle your solar panels so they face sun in order to receive the most direct sunlight.
Why Charge A Battery Pack Instead Of A Product Directly When Charging Via Solar
Overexposure to heat. Some products will shut down if they get too hot and it’s never safe to leave your electronics exposed in sunlight and heat for long periods of time.
Cloud cover. If clouds pass by or weather changes, the charging can become interrupted. This means your phone could be plugged into your Kickr and not charging. Portable batteries such as Jumprs give you a constant charge no matter the weather conditions and will always accept a charge via solar no matter how many clouds pass over.
Transportation. It’s much easier to charge your phone via a portable power pack than sitting in the sun waiting for your device to fully charge. Portable power packs let you charge anywhere.
Day vs Night. You can charge at any time while using a power pack while you can only charge via solar during the day when you have access to direct sunlight.
