Jackery 60w Solar Panel
It’s important to know that you can recharge your Jackery 240 in a variety of different ways.
If you’re in your car traveling, you may not have access to the solar panels, but you can use your car adapter to recharge your unit on-the-go.
If you’re remote camping, you may only have access to your 60W Solar Panels and nothing else.
If you’re stuck at home during power outages, you’ll also love the Solar Panels, which will keep you connected until help arrives or the emergency passes.
If you’re in your remote cabin, it can be powered by your fossil fuel generator, car adaptor or handy Solar panels..
Having more recharging options gives campers, the elderly, outdoors enthusiasts, and people who have difficulty lifting heavy objects ultimate peace of mind.
