Recent email feedback from stranded customer

Posted by Brian Wurts on

I don't post the emails I get but this one may help answer questions about what you can expect from our 90 watt kit even when stranded with a vehicle failure for over two weeks in a larger set up than most overlanders have (thanks Ed and Meredith for the email and permission to share it).Dear Brian Wurts, We purchased the 90 watt three panel solar powered system this Spring from you. We are writing to thank you for the panels as they really saved us. We had a transmission failure in our Dodge Ram with which we pull our...

New Waterproof Charge Controllers with LED display

Posted by Brian Wurts on

With Spring upon us and folks getting on the road we have been busy keeping up with the orders,thank you! We also have the new 28 watt 9x7 fold up kits coming out this week and are excited about these powerful ultra portable chargers.  The 150 watt kits now have an upgraded water and dust proof charge controller built in at no increase in price!

This volt meter IS INCLUDED in all solar kits!   See it here http://overlandsolar.com/products/led-voltage-display

New Overlandsolar Inverters

Posted by Brian Wurts on

With the complete Overlandsolar solar kit and one of these inverters you now have a complete solution to power your devices on the next short camping trip or the next expedition! After going through more small inverters than I can count that failed after a year I have had two models made to my specifications. The 600 watt pure and modified sine wave inverter are both well-made where it matters and are highly efficient. One of the main irritations when traveling out of the US is the need for multiple outlet adapters so I had this universal socket used to...
