I've been looking for a portable solar panel solution for years for my astrophotography and camping equipment, and AIMTOM's SolarPal is the perfect complement to my setup.
First of all, this thing is crazy lightweight and folds up thin enough that it'll fit in nearly any nook or cranny of your closet, garage, trunk, or otherwise. I'm also happy to say that this panel comes with just about every connector and adapter known to man, so even if you don't own an AIMTOM battery, they've got you covered. (This was a concern I had prior to purchasing as I already had another brand's battery - but I can say that the SolarPal connected and charged the battery with absolutely zero issue.) One of the coolest features of this panel is the built-in charge controller (the device which takes the panel's raw power output and converts it to USB or 18V DC). Many other panels require a separate box with additional wires. AIMTOM has cleverly hidden their charge controller within the accessory pouch mounted to the back side of the panel. As someone who hates extra wires everywhere, this small cable management move is greatly appreciated.
One con of the panel (which is more of a personal preference than a real con) is the dark brown fabric backing. I'd prefer something more along the lines of a smooth plastic backing - but I can see where the decision to go with fabric reduces the weight, keeps the design ultra-thin, and maintains the affordable price point.
Overall, this panel is an awesome product. I'm looking forward to using this at future star parties to recharge during the day, on camping trips to keep all my electronics powered up, and on road trips as a peace-of-mind device against a dead battery.
Awesome product. Comes with every adapter you could wish for, alligator clips to recharge a car battery. It's not heavy, well assembled, has a built in MPPT controller with 2 USB outlets. I also got AIMTOM Raptor 540wh battery station. Very impressed with quality and customer service. I compared their products with Goal Zero, Jackery and RockPals and found that AIMTOM had the best bang for your buck and more!
I had the opportunity to use this while camping for the past few days... and I LOVE it! In direct sunlight is charged my inverter/battery much faster than I anticipated. With clouds it took longer, but it was still charging! It's thinner and easier to carry than I expected from the picture; it's really very flat. I love that it came with a ton of adaptors and that I could charge an additional device directly while I was charging my inverter.
It was a family trip and I am pretty sure my dad is going to get his own because he was totally jealous. I was charging everyone's stuff the whole time, but he can't borrow mine when he goes next time because we live 1600 miles away and I'm taking mine with me.
I bought the 100W solar panel to compliment the Raptor 500. First of all, it’s quite a bit bigger than I was actually expecting, which is fantastic! It converts power fast, and folds completely flat for easy storage. There are also USB ports on the panel itself to charge your phone, tablet, or whatever can charge via USB. It is worth every penny!
I work completely remote as a digital marketer, and plan to use this to work completely off grid for days at a time! Super excited!
Just got my aimtom solar panel recently and wow this thing puts out amazing power to charge my devices. I love how there is a ports to hook up directly to other solar panels, or you can store the energy into a battery bank. The usb makes charging my phone and camera on the fly so incredibly convenient!
Was so excited to get this panel in! The perfect accessory and must have for these power stations. Love the quality and multiple accessory cables that come with it to use with numerous devices! AimTom is a company that I can easily stand behind and trust that in my outdoors cooks/adventures or in an emergency situation, they’ve got me covered.
I just unboxed my new AIMTOM SolarPal 100W Portable Solar Panel and tested it out... I Love it! Excellent design, simple to use, a great selection of wires and connections, and super portable for the wattage.
I used it to charge up my new AIMTOM 300-Watt Portable Power Station . So easy to set-up and I charged it about half-way in less than one day of direct sun. I charged it the rest of the way inside off of the 110V AC, it charged fast, and turned itself off to prevent over-charging.
I also contacted customer support by email to order some spare cables, and Emma got back to me super quickly, she was very friendly and professional, and a pleasure to work with!
The only con is it is awkward to carry of hiking or something along those lines. I’m not sure how easily it can break if bumped so I’ve just taken very good care of it. I keep it in the box it came in. When camping this is an amazing amenity to have! The solar panel said it takes 9 hours to fully charge my baby generator (Aimtom 300w) however it was fully charged in 6 hours. It is surely convenient to either hang, sit upright, or just lay flat. I absolutely recommend this for everyone! You never know when you will need it!
I purchased the AIMTOM 100w Solar Panel to compliment my AIMTOM Power Station and was pleasantly pleased with its performance. We used the solar panel to simultaneously charge multiple devices. The Solar Panel was the "Life" of our Camping Trip and gained several Fans who used it. It is light, compact and is easily transported and most importantly, reliable. It was a people pleaser during our camping trip.
