Zamp Solar 160-Watt Portable Solar Panel
ZS-US-160-PZamp Solar’s 160-watt portable solar panel system is the perfect size and power combination. It’s just a few pounds heavier than a 120-watt portable but kicks out an extra 40 watts of POWER! Zamp’s 160-watt portable is great for larger RV’s up to 40 feet or battery systems up to 4 batteries. It can also be used on single battery systems or smaller campers with no issues. Zamp Solar’s integrated solar charge controller makes sure not to overcharge the battery and ramps up the power when needed. The 160-watt portable comes in at a skimpy 35 lbs. and as small as 20” x 40” x 3” for storing. Great for truck campers, travel trailers, vans and smaller class A RV’s.
Zamp’s 160-watt portable kicks out 9.4 amp-hours of charging power each hour of optimal sunlight. Depending on your location you can expect to get between 35 and 75 amp-hours of charging power per day but I’ve personally have seen 90 amps in a single day from a 160-watt. For reference, average RV amp-hour use for a 30-40-foot RV is between 30 and 60 amp-hours a day.
In our opinion here at Solardealz the Zamp Solar 160-Watt Portable Solar Panel is the perfect size for most average RV'ers. At just 35 lbs. it's only slightly heavier than the 120-watt portable but has 40-watts more power. Slightly longer but the width profile is only 20" making it easy to slide into most closets or under beds. Portables are more efficient than rooftop mounted panels but only due to the nature that someone has to move them. This 160-watt portable has a 15-foot wire allowing the portables to be up to 15' away from the RV. This length can be increased to 30 feet with the 15' Portable Extension cable. Zamp has a unique frame for their panels that make them very stiff and great for use with portables or on RV's. Attaching the legs to this creates a very strong and sturdy structure.
