Solar Made Easy: Introducing The BAINTUFF Foldable Solar Blanket 180W

on Thursday, 16 March 2017. Posted in Leisure

Even in the cooler months Australia gets loads of sunshine. So it makes sense to harness the sun’s rays and power your off-road 4WD, camping, camper trailer, caravan and RV adventures for free all year round.

The benefits of solar are old news to anyone who loves the great outdoors, but Bainbridge Technologies have released an exciting new bit of solar kit designed to make life on the road that little bit easier.

The all new BAINTUFF 180W Foldable Solar Blanket is one of a new breed of lightweight and compact solar blankets that delivers enough power to keep your accessories running, and fully recharge your battery in optimal conditions on an average sunny day.

Lightweight and easy to use

Hauling traditional fold out solar panels is not a biweb green blanketg job for the average leisure seeker but after a long drive, wrestling with over 10 kilos of solar panels before you can get the kettle on or fire up the beer fridge can be a bit of a chore.

The BAINTUFF 180W Foldable Solar Blanket is a lightweight, compact option that doesn’t need an aluminium frame so it’s easier to fold up at the end of the day. And since it weighs in at just over five kilos setting up won’t feel like a gym work out.

Not only is setting up a breeze, but you can pick your set-up spot since it’ll work on your roof rack or bonnet, the top of your camper trailer, caravan or RV, or rolled out on the ground at camp.

It’s weather resistant and it won’t scratch your paintwork, and as the afternoon rolls in and the sun shifts in the sky you can easily reposition it on your windscreen or the side of the roof rack to soak up every last ray.

It doesn’t hurt that it also takes up less room in transit, since every extra kilo adds to fuel consumption, plus you’ll have space to fit in a few more six packs.

Maximum solar power, efficiency and performance

With a whopping 180W of power, kilo for kilo the BAINTUFF 180W Foldable Solar Blanket gives you more bang for your buck, since you’d need over 12kgs of traditional fold out solar panels to get the samsolar Grahame amount of power.

This lightweight compact solar power option doesn’t compromise on performance either, in fact we achieved great results from our own testing.

Traditional fold out panels can struggle to soak up the last of the sun’s rays towards the end of the day, but the BAINTUFF 180W Foldable Solar Blanket continued to pump out up to 75% of its maximum output.

    the specs for the 180W model have an unfolded size of 398*300*78mm. I'm assuming this is the folded size. Can you pls confirm the width and length when the mat is unfolded? Also i want to put the mat on the inside of the windscreen for security etc, is there any problems or concerns with this approach?

      Hi Greg,
      Placing the blanket inside the vehicle behind the wind screen, though secure, would lose a lot of efficiency due to a poetntion visor shade, dirty/tinted windows, plus output loss due to temperature rise inside the vehicle. Panels drop in output when they get hot - The DC termination box and cable could also be effected due to the 60+ degree heat. The unfolded size is 1830mm in length, 775mm in width. Hope this helps!
