KV-20AM solar charging unit combines easy maintenance of a frame-based module and convenience of a foldable one. Even in cloudy weather it will easily charge the majority of mobile phones, smartphones, MP3-players, iPod, iPhone, Blackberry, AA-, AAA-, CR123R batteries (which can then be used to power GPS, sonars, flashlights, mini-cameras) even in cloudy weather. This charging unit has enough output to be able to charge accumulators for SLR cameras, video cameras, tablets and netbooks. Using these units it becomes possible to charge laptops.

Included into the set charge controller is designed to convert and control solar module output voltage (up to three nominal values – 5 V, 5.7 V (via USB) and 12 V (when charging via car cigarette lighter)). It also provides the ability of visual control of irradiance level and connection of an external energy storage unit (12 V AGM or Li-pol battery) with capacity up to 18Ah. For each accumulator type we have developed individual charge characteristics that guarantee their durability and high-performance service life.

Maximum load current under condition of battery supply is 2,5 A (when charging via car cigarette lighter) and 1.5 A (when charging via USB). We have also protected the User against emergency conditions: after an accidental short circuit or controller output circuits overload current flow will be stopped automatically and subsystems will remain undamaged.

In the folded state KV-20AM can be easily placed into a small bag, and implementation of UPM technology will let you not to worry about the solar module safety in case of heavy rain, hail or prolonged ultraviolet radiation impact.

In case in a walking tour your electronic companion doesn’t require more energy than a mobile phone, we advise you to pay attention to solar charging units of KV-3.5 series.  But if you need significant amount of energy under bad light conditions it is better to switch to the description of devices belonging to the higher output class (KV-40М and higher).

* equivalent to power generated within a full sunny summer day under standard conditions (t=25 °C, irradiance 1000 W/m², light incidence angle 90° ).
