duralite portable solar panel

The Go Power DuraLite portable solar system provides an easy way to charge your RV batteries with clean, renewable power. Using the 100-watt foldable solar panel, this system collects solar energy to create DC power that passes through a solar charge controller into your batteries. The kit includes several adapters to suit your charging application. Also, it comes in a canvas 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 lightweight 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 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 100 watts per hour. Additionally, there are 2 built-in USB ports on the handles of the panel to charge your cell phone or tablet.


Smart Solar Controller Charges and Protects Battery Bank

duralite solar 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.


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, including Zamp solar ports. 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.

Available Accessories

expansion panel upgrades your system

The DuraLite 100-watt expansion panel lets you expand your solar setup to collect more sunlight and charge your batteries faster. This kit can handle up to 300 watts, which means you can connect 2 additional panels.

portable solar panel extension cable

If you need more distance between your battery connection and the panel, the extension cable (sold separately) provides 30' of additional length.

E trailer has excellent customer service. Arthur was very helpful with adjustments and all items came on time. Great Value too! I have not set up panels yet due to rain, however everything is well packaged, looks great, I'm sure it will work fine. Thank you

Perfect! Exactly what we expected at the best advertised price anywhere. Looking to get the 30 foot cable extension and ultimately will expand the number of portable panels. The video presentation that Evangeline did was the selling point. Great, lightweight addition to our Lance and need for portability.

Not sure until we get to use the product. I was impressed with the way the product was shipped. I would like more information about the controller? Your overall rating could be a 5 if you give me time to use the product.
