The solar chargers are made of thin film on plastic solar technology and
are encapsulated in a durable water resistant and UV tolerant fluoropolymer
coating, allowing for use in many applications including the charging of 12
volt marine batteries, boating accessories and many other marine uses. Each
charger comes equipped with a 15 foot extension cord with an O-ring battery
terminal connector and a 12 volt car adapter. The ultra durable and flexible
design allows for easy storage, as it can be rolled up and stowed with ease.

The remote usage combined with the weather resistant design allows
consumers to charge their electronics in areas where electrical outlets are
not available, like boating, camping, hiking and other outdoor activities.
With proper adapters, cell phones, digital cameras, GPS systems, satellite
phones, laptops and other small electronic devices can be charged when used in
combination with a 12 volt car adapter.
