Portable Power Hubs

Camping with comfort!

If you're heading away for a weekend (or longer!), don't risk flattening your starter battery by running your fridge or light off it. Get yourself an easy to use, portable power hub with a solar blanket to recharge it, and you'll be wondering how you ever went camping without it.

Battery Box VS Power Hub

Both battery boxes and power hubs can be easily taken in and out of your car, so they're not in the way when you're not using them. Both come with USB and cigarette lighter ports, and are intuitive to use.

The advantage of the power hub (which is the more expensive option) is that it contains a 300W inverter so you can plug in basic 240V electrical appliances e.g. a laptop. The power hub also has an LCD display that tells you how much charge the battery has left.

Both battery boxes and power hubs have anderson plugs that allow you to plug in a solar panel to charge the battery.

The Battery

For most camping setups, we recommend a 100 or 120Ah battery, which is what our standard kits come with. Choose from either a 120Ah lead-acid or 100Ah lithium ion battery. We do stock larger batteries - please see our deep cycle and lithium ion battery pages.

The main advantage of a lithium battery over a lead-acid is the weight. 120Ah lead-acid weighs 32kg, while a 100Ah lithium ion ways 9kg.

The Solar Blanket

A power hub isn't complete without a 200W solar blanket to be unfolded in the sun to recharge your battery. A 200W solar blanket will (on a sunny day) maintain and top up your battery during the day. So given sunny weather, you can stay off-grid indefinitely. Of course, weather is not that reliable, and on cloudy days you will be draining down your battery (for reference, an average 60L camping fridge draws about 48Ah per day - an LED bar light can draw 8 amps per hour).

Our solar blankets have an in-built MPPT to regulate the charge feeding into the battery, so you don't have to worry about overcharging. Fold it up and throw it in the boot when you're done!
