Companion’s 200W Solar Charger is the compact and convenient power accessory you need for a reliable self-sufficient camping setup.
This system folds neatly into an inbuilt 900D polyester case and is suitable for charging 70AH to 250AH batteries. The A-grade monocrystalline silicon cells have a 19.5% efficiency and generate a maximum output of 11.1 amp per hour at 18V max power. This charger is weather resistant with the cells encapsulated in ETFE lamination, and there’s an inbuilt adjustable stand so you can position the system at the most optimal angle towards the sun and peg down points will stop it from tipping over. The lithium battery is compatible with a 20A controller and the one included has Pulse Width Modulation so you can control the load with 3 adjustable settings.
With its ability to charge AGM, Gel, Calcium, Li-Ion, LiFeP04, and LiNiMnCo02 (NMC) batteries, the 200W Solar Charger from Companion will have you extending that weekend trip so you can stay off-grid for longer.

Companion 200w solar blanket1 answer
Hi Is this solar blanket unregulated or regulated so I have just had a lithium battery Installed into a motorhome & they tell me that the solar blanket has to be unregulated Appreciate anyone help on this matter, thank you
Mac - Newcastle East, NSW (7 months ago)
Solar Panels generally come with regulators, but they are a separate item that you can exclude if required. All you would need to do is plug the solar panel cables straight into the solar input on your motorhome, and pop the regulator in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping - you may need it in the future if your set up changes. Hope that helps.

Comparison to Hard Korr 200w solar blanket1 answer
The Hard Korr 200w blanket appears to be more efficient / produce a higher output and is about $100 cheaper. What are the main differences? How does the durability / built quality compare?
Amos - Millars Well, WA (1 year ago)
The output specs on both of these panels are exactly the same, 200W 11.1A. In terms of differences, the Hard Korr panels use a heavier duty fabric, hence the weight rating, and have also undertaken ingress protection testing for water and dust, etc. The Companion panels have an advanced function in the charge regulator which allows it to be compatible with the Companion Lithium Fridge range, whereas the Hard Korr panels are not. If you have one of these fridges, the Companion Panels are a must, but if you are just looking at a set of panels to use for general camping, the Hard Korr panels are an awesome option.

Charge battery box1 answer
Hi guy's can you tell me will this panel be able to charge my battery box via Anderson plug. Battery box has a lithium 125ah battery inside
Bec - Toronto, NSW (1 year ago)
Yes, if your battery box has an Anderson plug inlet, you'll be able to connect this panel to your box. The Solar panel is supplied with a solar regulator, so if your battery box doesn't have a built-in regulator, just be sure to use the supplied regular, and select the correct battery option for your Lithium battery.

Companion Lithium 60L1 answer
Hi Snowys - Is this solar panel that Ben talks about in the video for the Companion Lithium 60L Single Zone Rechargeable Fridge/Freezer - the controller can limit the max output to 12.8v? - also if some of the panels are covered in shade will the remaining sun exposed panels still charge the battery?
Mark - Carina Heights, QLD(2 years ago)
Yep! The Companion Solar Chargers are designed to be used with their Lithium Fridge range. In terms of solar panel performance in partial shade, you will still get voltage output, but it will drop. It's better for you to be able to monitor your panels throughout the day and move them to a better position if required.

Plastic Film1 answer
I just purchased this solar panel, and was wondering about the think plastic film that covers the cells. I'm assuming this is to be removed?
Jeremy - Hobart, TAS(2 years ago)
I'm assuming you mean the protection plastic similar to what cover brand new phone screens, etc? If that's the case then yes, absolutely remove it.

Lithium fridge compatibility1 answer
Can I use this 200w solar panel to charge up a companion 75L lithium dual-zone fridge freezer?
Jeffrey - Dapto, NSW(3 years ago)
Yes, the Companion 200W Solar Charger is an ideal option for use with your 75L Lithium Dual Zone Fridge. They're a good size and will give reasonably good output to keep your fridge running!
