One of the best, big-ticket outdoor gifts you can give a camper, outdoor enthusiast, or adventure lover is a portable power station. The latest ROCKPALS 300 is equipped with a 280wh (10.8V/26Ah) lithium-ion battery pack to meet all of your needs in outdoor camping, power outages, and other emergency situations such as a hurricane or snow storm. For reference, the ROCKPALS 300 has enough power to charge an iPhone 12 for about 28-29 charges, iPad Mini for about 14 charges, 12” MacBook for about 5-6 charges, a mini car refrigerator for about 5-6 hrs, a Gopro for about 40 charges or other small home appliances.

With multiple efficient recharging methods, you will have your ROCKPALS ready to go when you are. With the built-in professional MPPT technology, the portable solar generator provides faster solar recharge rates and can also be recharged from an AC wall outlet in about 4.5-5.5 hrs or from a carport in about 6-7 hours while on-the-road/off-road. Additionally, the backup battery power supply uses a battery management system to improve battery utilization, and extend battery life through short protection, overcurrent protection, overvoltage protection, overload protection, and overheating protection.

For an added charging option, the ROCKPALS 100-watt folding solar panels are compatible with most solar generators on the market. With the included 10 different sizes of connectors, these monocrystalline silicon solar cells provide a high conversion efficiency of up to 23%, generate more energy and perform better than conventional panels in strong sunlight to produce maximum power to charge compatible devices in the least time. These solar panels are ideally suited for outdoor life, camping, RV trip, picnic, fishing, home emergency, off-grid living power outage supplies, and hurricane preparedness items.

The built-in smart IC chip intelligently identifies your devices and maximizes their charging speed while protecting your devices from overcharging and overloading. The panels provide 4 times the faster-charging speed for your smartphones, tablets, and small appliances. With a professional parallel connector, you can also parallel 2 SP003 100W solar panels to get more output to recharge high-capacity power stations faster.

This solar charger is designed with a handle, convenient to carry wherever you go. Tie it to a car roof or a tree with the 4 hanging holes, and charge devices freely when you are driving, fishing, climbing, hiking, and anywhere you are on the go. Made from durable 1200D Oxford cloth, the solar panel is with IP65 high water resistant rate and can endure all weather conditions.
