Automotive Story: BYO electric grid anywhere

Hi Larry,

For multi-day trips and extended camping in the middle of nowhere having an alternative to loading your vehicle with a multitude of portable battery packs can make an adventure more convenient and less stressful. There are a variety of solar panel options that can be unfolded and set out to capture power, but they can also accidentally be forgotten.

Sunflare XPLOR solar panels can be roof mounted on vehicles or hard-shell rooftop tents and they can take a beating. From hailstorms to tree branches, extreme heat or extreme cold, XPLOR panels are designed to eliminate the risks of micro cracking and they have bypass diode cells so if one part of the panel is shaded or blocked by gear the rest of the panel can still generate power, unlike many other portable solar options.

Here is a link to a video demonstrating how XPLOR panels outlast traditional silicon solar panels in a durability test involving golf balls, bats, and axes -

Would you be interested in more information on the XPLOR panels to consider them for upcoming gift guides or gear roundups?

Thank you,
