PowerDock Overview
The world's best solar-powered chargers

PowerDocks are portable power kits featuring a folding solar panel, battery pack, power meter & DC outlet sockets packed in a water resistant nylon carrying case with velcro equipment fastening system. Think of them as portable generating stations which use the sun to operate your small electronics.

Originally designed for family-style camping where weight is not a major concern but nighttime operation is. However, their range of uses extends far beyond just camping. These units will operate most laptop computers for over 2 hours and as long as 4 hours.

Powerdock Solar Charger

Fully integrated solar panels and 12 Volt battery storage

PowerDock has been designed to bridge the gap between home recharging and vehicle recharging. PowerDock provide 12 volt power for operating portable low voltage electrical products.  They utilize solar energy to charge self-contained batteries  capable of storing up to 9.2 amp/hours of 12 volt electrical energy. This new functionality allows you to operate your <90W laptop, stereo, TV, cell phone, fan, light, etc. around the clock without having to use your auto battery.

PowerDock is a portable low voltage source for not only storing energy but generating it as well! Operate your equipment day or night and recharge PowerDock by simply leaving it in the sun for a few hours! Your energy is generated free of charge.

Applications include:

Utility Power Loss: Stay in complete contact by plugging-in your cell phone and <90W laptop; operate a small low voltage TV or stereo; turn-on a low voltage light, etc.

Camping: Extend the useful life of your cell phone / <90W laptop or auto batteries; operate a fan or fluorescent light in your tent deep into the night; recharge your batteries the next day in the sunlight.

Sailing: Avoid running down your on-board battery and have the convenience of operating your equipment autonomously. Charge your on-board battery while sailing!

Emergencies: Store in the trunk of your car for emergency situations. In addition to supplying enough power to operate your cell phone and <90W laptop for days. The big PowerDock Elite model will even recharge an auto battery!

Remote Shelters: Store PowerDock in locations where you need stand-by power. Lighting, circulating or exhaust fan, music, battery recharging, etc.

Trickle Charging Batteries: PowerDock is an excellent way to safely charge and keep your batteries charged.
