WATERPROOF

PORTABLE SOLAR PANEL DESIGNED FOR TOUGH ADVENTURES

The Fold series is your ideal solar power partner for on-the-go needs. With its waterproof design available in four sizes, it powers your essentials effortlessly: just unfold, connect, and start charging instantly.

Despite their compact size when folded—comparable to a laptop—Fold panels deliver exceptional wattage. They’re fully laminated and designed with soft corners to prevent water and dust damage. Equipped with 9mm eyelets for easy temporary mounting and 15 cm cables featuring waterproof MC4 connectors, these panels are built for convenience and durability. The rubberized “hinges” enhance their waterproofing while contributing to their minimal weight and streamlined design.

The 5 Dimensional Solar Panel

SUNBEAMsystem’s Fold-series sets the standard for portable solar panels. Our unique five-dimensional approach results in exceptional build quality, where each aspect works together to boost overall performance:

  1. Enhanced Outer Protection Layer
    Our proprietary layer offers unmatched UV resistance and transparency, surpassing other types of ‘premium’ surfaces.
  2. Premium Sunpower Cells
    These high-end cells provide superior efficiency (more Watts/m2), wider light spectrum capture, longer lifespan, and a deeper black color.
  3.  Advanced Conduits & Durability Core
    Robust internal conduits within multiple protective layers ensure lasting performance.
  4. Sandwich Glassfiber Composite Stiffener Layer
    A lightweight, high-tech core that optimally maintains structural integrity, offering near-metal properties without the delamination risk of combining metal with plastics. Protecting the cells and the core without adding weight.
  5. Cloth-Integrated Backside
    Offers a fully waterproof solution while ensuring the panel remains easy to handle.
