This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Solar power is an especially popular and environmentally-friendly means of cord-cutting, and its effectiveness relies largely on powerful and efficient electrical components. If you're traveling by car or boat or are on foot, or if you're building an off-grid haven complete with renewable energy, one of these 100-watt panels will provide the juice you need.

Editor's Notes

January 03, 2019:

Not all solar panels are created equal! Maybe you're working on a portable setup, say, for an RV or boat, or you're planning an outdoors excursion with a thoroughly equipped base camp, or you could even be crafting a custom project like a solar-powered, motorized beverage cooler to follow you around the next tailgate (yes, those exist). 100-watt panels are generally of manageable sizes, and don't cost too much. Renogy is among the most well-known producers, and their top models here do not disappoint. On the other hand, HSQT makes very similar products, which often sell for a much lower price. We really like the AllPowers because of its extreme portability; it's one of the few that can actually be carried a reasonable distance, because it folds down smaller than the rest, and is a bit lighter. The Dokio, Tishi Hery, and Rockpals are similarly great choices for car camping and outdoor events. The Unlimited is one of the most flexible, and it's also particularly thin, so it's great for crowded or curved exteriors on RVs and boats. Make sure to be clear on which connectors your choice comes with, as some include different levels of charging and connectivity. Also, if you're using one of these with your existing battery bank or power station, double-check to be certain that every component's input and output currents are compatible.
