This solar panel converts sunlight directly into 12 V electricityideal for recharging consumer electronics and maintaining vehicle batteries. The solar panel is unregulated and is intended for battery charging. Open circuit voltage (unconnected) can be as high as 31 volts. This panel has an extra special ETFE encapsulation that is not found in other portable folding panels that will add years to its expected life. Please note this solar panel is new and has been in storage since 2014.It will output about 50% of its rated capacity out of the box. It will take 2 days of sun soaking to come to full power.
All you need to do to sun soak is to lay it out in the sun. This is common with all CIGS Solar panels.

About Global Solar: Global Solar Energy (Tucson Arizona) has designed and built lightweight Portable Power PacksTM (P3s) for the Military for over ten years, having developed the first lightweight foldable solar panels for the United States Marine Corp beginning in 1998. Their current designs are a result of continuous interaction and field demonstrations. This panel has been designed for rapid field recharging of 12v deep cycle/lead-acid, BB390 and BB590 nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH), and BB2590 lithium ion (Li-ion) rechargeable batteries.
In 2003, this product line was tested and approved by CECOM (Communications Electronics Command) and subsequently they deployed over 770 solar panels for recharging the Bren-tronics BB2590 soldier battery pack. Global Solars P3s are rugged and durable. They have passed the United States Armys series of standard environmental tests, MIL-STD-810E.
