New Bixpy Solar Panel
Introducing our newest solar panel to our lineup!
The SUN80 Solar Panel is an 80-watt waterproof solar panel that can charge a drained Bixpy PP-378 Power Bank full in about 6 to 10 hours!
Since we know our users are outdoors and near water, we have designed the panel to be robust and able to withstand the rigors of outdoor marine use. With the help of the new SUN80 Solar Panel, the avid kayaker and fisherman can explore waters that are truly off-grid on multi-day trips.
The SUN80 is an addition to the Bixpy Solar Panel lineup that already includes SUN45, a 45-watt waterproof solar panel specifically designed to charge 12V power banks. The SUN80 is paired with the Bixpy PP-33 and PP-378 Outboard Batteries, and the SUN45 is paired with the Bixpy PP-166 Power Station.
The SUN80 is designed specifically for boats, and is a great option as a source of backup power when you're off grid. Solar panels act as a way to recharge the watercraft’s batteries and keep your electronic essentials running. Additionally, solar panels can ensure that the battery always has a source of sun power and assist your watercraft with being self-sustainable.
