Streamlight Launches Vehicle Solar Charging Panel
A thin-film amorphous silicon charging panel, the Streamlight SolarStream adheres to a variety of contoured surfaces. The panel allows for 14 watts of maximum power in full sunlight.
"With the Streamlight SolarStream, first responders can charge lights, radios, and other electronics with less fear of draining their vehicle's battery," said Streamlight President and Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. "The Streamlight SolarStream uses more of the available sunlight because it is not dependent on a mounting angle, as required with other systems."
The charging system works by dispensing up to one amp of current to a vehicle's battery, helping to prevent it from draining completely and reducing the need for jump-starts and frequent battery replacement due to battery drain. The Streamlight SolarStream maintains a trickle charge to the vehicle battery even in low sun and cloudy conditions, and is both heat and shade tolerant.
The panel measures 40.88 inches long by 13.07 inches wide, and weighs 1.3 pounds. The product's encapsulated amorphous silicon technology offers exceptional durability and weather resistance. The product has been extensively police tested, and is tested for wind resistance to 120 miles per hour.
Designed to directly wire to a vehicle's battery, the panel is packaged with a fuse holder and fuse, which will automatically cut off power from the panel if the included cord is damaged. The 20-foot 18AWG cord allows for a variety of installation conditions.
The Streamlight SolarStream comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty and has an MSRP of $400.00.
