go power portable solar system

The Go Power portable solar system provides an easy way to charge your RV batteries with clean, renewable power. Using the 130-watt foldable solar panel, this system collects solar energy to create DC power that passes through a solar charge controller into your RV batteries. The kit includes several adapters to suit your charging application. Also, it comes in a heavy-duty, nylon carrying case for convenient transport and storage.


If you occasionally dry camp with your RV, this kit is a perfect solution for charging batteries while you're away from shore power. And since the system is portable and flexible, you can choose where to place the panel and charge other batteries using solar power as well. It's also a great complement to your rooftop RV solar panels, providing an extra boost of charge when you need it.


High-Efficiency, Monocrystalline Solar Panel

The charging process starts with the solar panel, which unfolds and uses adjustable legs for support. When solar energy interacts with the silicon cells in the panel, it generates a flow of DC electrical current that charges your RV's batteries. Each of the monocrystalline cells is made from a single crystal of silicon, so the electrons that create the current have more space to move, making this panel more efficient than one with polycrystalline cells. And in optimal sunlight conditions, the panel produces 130 watts per hour.

The silicon cells are set between a cushioned backing material and tempered solar glass to withstand the elements. The glass has low-iron content to provide exceptional transparency, which ensures maximum sunlight collection. Finally, the panel is framed with anodized marine-grade aluminum to resist rust and corrosion.


Smart Solar Controller Charges and Protects Battery Bank

go power solar charge controller

The solar controller prevents harmful overcharging by adjusting the power generated by the solar panel before it reaches your batteries. It uses pulse width modulation technology to regulate the output through pulses that provide a consistent charge. Typically, this type of technology is a good fit for smaller systems with lower voltages.


Using a multistage charging system, the controller automatically switches voltages while the battery bank charges. This accelerates the charge, but also helps extend battery life by adjusting the voltage during the different modes. The controller is compatible with multiple battery types and includes preset charging profiles for sealed/gel, AGM, flooded/wet cell, and lithium batteries.


Charging Modes

  1. Bulk: This mode charges at the full rated load for a quicker recharge time. As the name suggests, this is where the bulk of the charging happens. It typically charges the battery to at least 80% capacity.
  2. Absorption: This mode provides controlled voltage to ensure a full charge. Once the battery reaches between 80% to 90% capacity, the absorption state will kick in and start charging at a regulated voltage. In each charging profile, this mode is set to last for 30 minutes after the bulk charge is completed.
  3. Float: Once the battery reaches full charge, this mode maintains a lower voltage to compensate for self-discharge. This reduces battery stress and minimizes gassing and water loss.
  4. Equalization: On flooded/wet cell batteries, this mode activates to prevent stratification and sulfate buildup during extended float cycles. These two issues can damage a battery by causing the accumulation of acid at the bottom of the battery and hardened sulfate crystals on the battery plates. This mode is especially helpful when your battery is going unused during storage.

The backlit, digital display acts as an information center for your solar panel output. It shows the charging current, battery voltage, and battery state of charge. It also allows you to input your battery type and choose a charging profile. Additionally, a built-in USB port on the front of the controller provides a convenient outlet to charge your cell phone or tablet.


Lastly, the controller includes several built-in safety features to help protect your equipment. The charging process will shut down if the controller starts to overheat and when an overcurrent is detected. Also, if the battery or solar panel is wired incorrectly, it activates a reverse polarity alarm.


Easy-to-Use Adapters for Battery Connection

This kit includes several adapters to suit different applications. It comes with XLR-style and SAE solar plugs, which work with RVs that are pre-wired for solar. For traditional battery connections, it has battery clamps and battery terminals. Additionally, a 7-pin trailer adapter (sold separately) provides another connection to your 5th wheel or camper. Each adapter has an Anderson connector which plugs into the portable solar panel.


Heavy-Duty, Nylon Carrying Case

Video Transcript for Review of Go Power RV Solar Panels - Portable Solar Kit - 34282730

Today we're taking a look at the Go Power portable solar system with digital solar controller. This is going to give you a portable solar panel to use on your RV whenever you're in those spots where you're not really going to have access to a generator, shore power, and you still want all your accessories inside your RV to run. Right now I have it sitting inside its convenient carrying case. This is going to be a semi-rigid material, so it's going to keep everything nice and protected. Also makes it easy to just pack this up like a big suitcase and transport it out. Has some nice big zippers on the side to get everything zipped up, and then a handle on the solar panel itself will act as the handle for the whole thing.

So, you can just lift it up and go.Let's open this up and look at our solar panel itself. So, here's this . one of the side of the solar panel that's actually folded up right now, kind of like a little sandwich. And that's kind of nice because it's going to keep all of our wires and cables contained. Has two latches on either side that you can undo and then open this up again, and you can see that's where all our cables are.

Our solar monitor is right here already installed on the side. That can pop out as well, so we can read it from the top or have it down here.So, it makes the whole system really easy to use and very portable, very easy to get set up whenever we get to a spot where we want to stop, have our RV in the shade, and then find a nice sunny spot to set up our solar panel. So, there are two sides to it. It will fold out to give you another panel exactly the same size. So, it's not just this one, I just haven't folded up to make it a little bit easier for me to demonstrate here on the table.

This is going to be really nice. It can be used with . in conjunction with other solar panels. So, if you already have one mounted on the top of your RV and you just need a little bit of extra power whenever you stop, this is going to be compatible with that system. You may have to do a hard-wire into those cables to get everything to work properly.

There's going to be more complete instructions on how to do that that come with this kit, but that is an option available to you.The panel itself is covered with a very durable solar glass. So, that prevents any damage from hail or any debris there. It's also going to keep our whole panel connected . or protected, and this does have an IP67 rating, and basically what that means is that it's going to be pretty water resistant. I wouldn't suggest using this in a rainstorm because you're not really going to get any solar power anyway, but if a sun shower starts pouring down, this probably won't have any adverse effects. First, you want to make sure that the connectors are all connected really well, out of the way of any puddles or anything like that. You definitely don't want to have power cables going through water, but for the most part, our solar panels themselves are going to be watertight and they should last for a good, long time.The outer frame here is made of an anodized aluminum, so that's also going to protect against rust and corrosion. We don't have to worry about it ever rusting, and it's pretty durable as well while still being relatively lightweight. So, this isn't going to weigh a ton, just weighs about 33 pounds, which is pretty manageable for the size of solar panel that this is. We'll also have our monocrystalline solar cells behind that tempered solar glass and that's what's going to actually give us our solar power.On the inside, we opened that up again, we'll have all our Anderson style plugs. So, we'll have a couple of different options as far as how to connect this. We'll have 15 feet of cable that it comes with and the one end will connect to our solar monitor. That monitor's also going to prevent any overcharging so we don't have to worry about damage from too much power coming into our batteries. And then we'll have a couple options as far as how to connect it to our batteries. If you want to do a hardware kit where it just directly connects to the positive and negative then the other end plugs into our extender. We'll have this round two prongs solar style plug. Some RVs will be outfitted with solar a plug already, and this will plug right into that. Or you can use this two pronged plug that's compatible, again, with some other systems. And then our more universal just alligator clamps, pretty quick and easy to clamp on there. And that'll work for just about any battery that you'd want to use it with, and just clamp it right to positive and negative, plug it up to your system. So, if you have a smaller battery that you wanted to charge while you're out on the go, you can use that as well. So, it's going to be pretty versatile.The nice thing about this, again, is that you can have your RV parked somewhere in the shade and then have this out in the sun so you don't have to have your RV out in the sun while you're charging everything. And it also allows you to keep your AC from completely depleting your batteries when you don't have an opportunity to have them running off of shore power, or if you're just in a situation where a generator doesn't make sense, if you don't have one, this is going to extend the life of those batteries. It might not be able to fully run those accessories off of just the solar panel, but it'll at least extend the life of your batteries and keep you from being stranded out in the road without any AC or other accessories.As far as the specs with this: it does work with 12 volt and 24 volt battery systems. The solar panel's rated power is 130 watts. There are two other panels available that are going to be pretty much the same other than that wattage rating. Part number 3428729, that's going to have a 90 watt power rating, or 34282610, that has a 200 watt power rating. So, kind of pros and cons. This one is kind of in the middle. It's kind of the sweet spot as far as giving you a good amount of power with that 130 watt rating, but it's not as big and bulky as that 200 watt one. But it'll still charge faster than the 90 watt one.Our solar panel output for this is 6.74 amps, and the solar controller maximum input current is 10 amps. Again, it does have an IP rating of 67 which means that it's going to be impervious to dust, and waterproof up to being submerged in about a meter of water for 30 minutes. That's what that rating is for, but again, you want to always use caution with any kind of electrical system. You don't want to have wires and cables going into water, but if you happen to run into some light rain, should be just fine.The cable length that comes with this is 12 feet. Whenever it's open all the way up, it's 32 1/2 inches long by 39 3/4 inches wide, and 1 3/8 inches deep. Closed, like I have it here, it's 32 1/2 inches long by 19 7/8 inches wide, and 2 3/4 inches deep. The total weight is 33 pounds, and it does have a warranty on the panels for 25 years. That is a limited warranty. And on the controller inside it has a five year warranty from Go Power.All in all, I think that it's going to be a really handy system for those situations that I've mentioned earlier, and it should get all your portable power needs taken care of. And that's going to do it for our look at the Go Power portable solar system with digital solar controller.

I really like the footing system. It will make it easy to tie down so a wind blast won't blow it over. That actually happened to my last solar panels made by a now defunct company. 735006

I have set up my unit on a bright sunny day and it seems to be working well. The instruction booklet is pretty sparse. The videos that etrailer put together are good. However would like to see procedures for selecting battery type with the controller. Also as a point of info would like more written explanation from manufacturer detailing what they all mean. The etrailer video is good but some of us like to know more on what those numbers mean for our battery. I have the unit to keep my batteries charged when I don’t want to run my generator. 727578

  • Picking Between 130 Watt and 90 Watt Solar Panels for No Boundaries 10.6 Camper
    The bigger the solar panels you go with from Go Power the more wattage you end up getting so between the 130 watt kit part # 34282730 and the # 34282729 I'd go with the 130 watt kit. The length is only 10 inches longer so overall you get more wattage without sacrificing that much space when storing them. The amperage also increases from 4.4 amps to 6.74 amps to.

  • Will Go Power Portable Solar System 34282730 Work Well with 2019 Lance 1475S Dry Camping
    The Go Power Portable Solar System # 34282730 that you referenced should work great to keep the 12V battery in your Lancer camper topped off. In reality it's going to depend on just how much power you will be drawing (how many accessories you typically use, how much amperage they draw, etc) but its 6.74 amp output should be enough with just a single battery attached. This kit does feature the XLR-style plug that will connect right to the OEM receptacle you mentioned having on the side...

  • What is the Benefit of Using Two 6V Batteries and One 12V Battery
    The benefit of using 2 batteries rated for 6V along with 1 battery rated for 12V is that you are using less space (and less weight per battery when moving them) to get the same amount of power and amp hours that you would get if you were to use 3 batteries rated for 12V. The typical amp/hour rating for a 6V battery is 200. When you connect these in series so that they are compatible with the 12V battery (and your trailer electrical needs) that means you have 2 batteries connected for...

  • Does Go Power Portable Solar System # 34282730 Include Plugs for Solar Outlet on Camper
    I believe the Furrion 10 amp outlet on the outside of your Coachmen Prism is an XLR-style solar port, with which the included XLR plug for the Go Power Solar System # 34282730 will work perfectly. I have attached an image of both this plug and what the corresponding outlet looks like that you can compare to your Furrion unit. The other common trailer solar outlet style is an SAE unit. I have attached an image of this as well. The Go Power Solar System includes the needed plug for this...

    The Furrion Solar port # FSPINS-BS only fits with the male connector that comes on their solar suitcase. We had issues with that product so we don't carry it and they don't have a connector available as a separate part. I reached out to them directly to confirm this.

  • Solar Panel Recommendation for 2018 Keystone Sprinter
    So typically trailers like yours will have a battery that the inverter can draw power from when the generator isn't running. What the solar panel can do is help keep that battery topped off. If your 2018 Keystone Sprinter is already wired for a solar panel this should already all be taken care of and all you need to do is pick out the best panel for your needs/budget. One great option is the Go Power Retreat Solar Charging System with Digital Solar Controller # 34272635 which was designed...

  • Portable Solar Panel System for RV with Furrion Solar Outlet Rated for 10 Amps
    The Go Power Portable Solar System with Digital Solar Controller # 34282610 would be a bit overkill for your 10 amp outlet so instead you'd want to go with the # 34282730 which has an amperage rating of 6.74 amps which will work great and won't be too much amperage. The kit you referenced has an output rating from the panel of 11.63 amps.
