Solar Panel Starter Kit

This Solar Panel Starter Kit is perfect for every off grid location. It is small, relatively cheap in the grand scheme of things, and means I can power up critical gear. What good is having a nice GPS unit if you can’t keep it powered up for when you need it? Same with phones.

I love how this Solar Panel Starter Kit is so flexible. I can use it for my off grid cabin or use it on my boat, RV, or any other vehicle I can mount it on. This means I can charge phones, radios, and even string some LED Lights up, and trust me you will need them. Most of us are not used to being outside when its gets dark, and it will be dark, very dark after a catastrophic disaster.

Regardless of where you set up this Solar Kit it means you are going to have power. That means you can string up LED Lights. Have you ever tried to cook or clean a gun by firelight? It’s not easy and its not fun. Especially if you drop something. Lights mean you can cook, clean weapons, or do other maintenance tasks after dark. It also means you can turn on the lights if something goes bump in the night around you. Much better to know its a possum than something that wants to kill you.

Solar Panel Starter Kit Scoring

This Solar Panel Starter Kit can have a high impact on your survival. Simply having lights in the dark can have a huge impact. Add in the ability to power up devices and run small electric appliances and this Kit should be on your list of high priority gear to acquire. It scores a 650/1000.
