Fly Products...BioLite's SolarPanel 5+ and SolarPanel 5

BioLite is also introducing the SolarPanel 5+ and SolarPanel 5, on top of their new PowerLight Mini, the brand’s first offering in the solar category. The high-efficiency monocrystalline panels deliver 5 watts of electricity and the SolarPanel 5+ features an onboard battery storage for use after the sun has gone down. 

BioLite’s innovation comes with its design, which helps users get the most from the sun. The Optimized Sun System features an integrated sundial cuts out the guesswork with a 360-degree kickstand that stabilizes the panel on any angle. This simple, intuitive combination enables users to set up their slim, packable panels easily for maximum efficiency. 

“We developed the SolarPanel 5 after seeing how many current panel designs don’t set you up for success,” said Cedar. “Propping a panel up on rocks just doesn’t cut it. When you’re not directly aligned to the sun, you can miss out on up to 30 percent of the watts your panel could be producing. The SolarPanel 5 series shows you exactly where to be, and gives you integrated features to keep it in the right spot.”

  • 5 watt, high-efficiency monocrystalline panels. Can power phones, tablets, and cameras, etc., as well as BioLite gear

  1. I'm planning a couple "trout bum" weekends this year. This looks like a product that could help keep the camera charged when I'm camping in the boonies..
