The Brunton Power Essentials kit combines the energy-capturing power of the Explorer 5 solar array and the portable power storage of the Inspire power reservoir for a complete solar power solution.

  • Use the light, folding Explorer 5 solar array directly with your smartphone, music player, or action sports camera during daylight hours
  • When darkness falls, connect your devices to the Inspire power reservoir to make sure power-hungry electronics stay amped into the night
  • Explorer 5 solar array is optimized for USB-based portable devices and is compatible with Brunton Sync Tech amps and task lights (not included)
  • Explorer 5 integrates seamlessly with the Inspire power reservoir (included) or other Brunton power packs for off-the-grid performance
  • Light and compact, this polycrystalline solar array features an output of 5V and 1,000mA; it folds down to a mere 9 x 4.5 x 1 in. and weighs in at 14.8 oz.
  • Inspire power reservoir features a water-resistant and durable rubberized shell that helps protect the internal rechargeable lithium polymer battery
  • Inspire features 3,200mA capacity, USB 2.0-compatible output of 1,000mA/5V, power gauge and auto shut-off; it measures 3.75 x 3.5 x .75 in. and weighs a scant 5.5 oz.
