About Fold Solar Panels

What other equipment do I need?

Most of our customers use the Tough Fold to charge their vehicle or boat battery. Usually when a permanent solar panel is no option or as an extra boost when permanent solar panels are not enough.

The Tough Fold should be connected to a 12V battery via a solar charge controller. The charge controller could either be a permanently installed charge controller (like MoonRay MPPT)  or a portable charge controller such as the Mini-R.

Most big size battery banks meant for outdoor use, usually have a solar panel port hence you might connect the solar panels directly.

Can I connect Tough Fold direct to my equipment?

To charge a 12V battery you will need a charge controller (like the MoonRay MPPT or the portable Mini-R)

The support a portable fridge you will need to have a battery connected and a solar charge controller in between the solar panel and battery.

If you have a battery bank with specific solar panel connectors you might connect directly without a charge controller.

Tough Fold is connected with standard MC4 connectors (easy connect version). There is no USB port on the solar panel itself .

May I use many solar panels together?

Yes you may. Make sure your solar charge controller has a sufficient capacity. Connect the solar panels in parallel (plus to plus and minus to minus). To achieve this on might use MC4 T-connectors.

How to connect and what charge controller to choose?

Tough Fold has very short cables and will most of the time need an extension cable.  The easy-disconnect MC4 connectors offer great compatibility with other solar panel equipment as well as being more humane to handle compared to traditional MC4 connectors.

You can choose any brand equipment to suit your needs but we offer 3m and 6m ready-made extension cables.

When buying the Mini-R there are different connectors included suiting many needs.

If portability is of the essence then you will probably choose the Mini-R controller. Being so small it might only harbor a 65W solar panel.
