Powerenz LFP40 Waterproof System
In the two photos below, one can see the hard case, the solar panel folded, and the extension cable that connects the solar panel to the charge controller for charging the battery.
This silent portable solar power generator utilizes the finest technology obtainable. Powerenz LFP40 takes advantage of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry that weighs 40-50% less than lead acid batteries of comparable charge capacity, and that will provide at least 2000 charge/discharge cycles before it begins to lose its rated charge capacity. If you discharge an AGM or Gel lead acid battery by 70% of its rated charge capacity every day, you will need to replace the battery every 250-300 days vs. every 2000 days when using the LFP battery in our system.
Powerenz LFP40 Waterproof System utilizes Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology solar charging which optimizes the electronic relationship between solar panel and battery. This can accelerate the rate at which the battery can be solar-charged by up to 30% per day. Our solar charging systems are configured specifically for our LFP series of portable solar power systems.
This Portable Solar Power System can be carried during events where high power, high energy density and low weight are critical. Powerenz LFP40 can provide power for a variety of portable electronic devices that require 12 volts DC up to 15 amps/180 watts, 120 volts AC up to 320 watts, and that can recharge itself in sunlight using the included solar panel. This system is best suited to provide power for virtually all small to medium size portable electronic devices, such as cell and satellite phones, communication radios, laptop computers, small battery chargers, night vision systems, satellite repeaters, lighting fixtures, small power tools, televisions, GPS’s, flashlights, small refrigeration units, and more.
The battery assembly, protective circuitry, solar charge controller, power inverter, wiring, AC-powered battery charger, extension cable, and accessories are housed inside a waterproof, dustproof, and crushproof hard case. The solar panel is carried separately. 12-volt DC power is accessible via a female cigarette lighter socket that is implanted in a sidewall of the hard case, and that is protected against over-current by the internal circuitry of the solar charge controller. 120-volt AC power is provided by an inverter that attaches to the terminals of the battery via a pair of alligator clamps, and that is protected against over-current internally. The solar power input connector is implanted into a sidewall of the hard case.
The Powerenz LFP40 Waterproof System includes:
Solar panel – high-efficiency, foldable 75-watt/3.75-amp unit in solid black that weighs 8.3 pounds, that will require approximately 8-9 hours of peak sunlight to completely recharge the battery if it is depleted, that measures 63.75 x 18.83 inches unfolded, and that measures 18.83 x 12 x 1 inches inches folded. The capped solar power input adapter is accessible from the outer surface of the hard case, and an connector-extension cable is included. See http://www.powerenz.com/store/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=269 for the details about this panel.
Solar Charge Controller – a sophisticated, custom programmed, 15-amp/200-watt unit that uses MPPT to accelerate solar charging of the battery by up to 30%. The solar charge controller is protected against over-current by an 25-amp circuit breaker. The solar charge controller has a baseline, continuous power consumption of 35 milliamps. If the system is to be stored for a prolonged length of time, the circuit breaker should be turned to the OFF position and/or the battery should be charged every 1-2 months in order to prevent complete drainage of the battery. In order to solar charge the battery or to recharge the battery using the AC-powered battery charger, the circuit breaker must be turned to the ON position.
Hard Case – ATA 300, IP67, STANAG 4280, and DS 81-41 approved waterproof, dustproof, and crushproof case in black that can be carried by a rugged handle.
Power Inverter - continuous 320-watt/surge 400-watt, 12VDC to 120VAC, 90% efficient, modified sine wave unit that has 2 AC receptacles, and that is protected against over-current internally. The wires from the inverter attach directly to the two terminals of the battery via a pair of alligator clamps.
AC-powered Battery Charger - 10-amp unit that operates via worldwide voltages 110-240-volts AC, 50 or 60 Hz, and that plugs directly into the AC-powered battery charging port.
The system weighs 42 pounds.
