Some of the best places to visit are in isolated destinations, as they are able to offer you spectacular views that are often unspoilt. Despite this, these destinations also come with the lack of power source. However, don’t let this stop you from going on your next adventure. When you’re far from a power source, a great way to keep your appliances running for longer without draining your battery is with solar power. A solar panel is able to do so as it trickle charges the battery connected to your appliance by drawing power from the sun.

There are plenty of solar power options in the market for every application, allowing you to explore every corner of Australia. From rooftop models for caravans, motorhomes and camper trailers to foldable and portable solar panels for camping.

With so many options out on the market, it can be overwhelming when it comes to choosing a solar power product. To help you choose a solar power product that is most suitable for your needs, we’ve created a chart to allow you to compare features and benefits across a variety of solar products.
