Stuff in this video:
Dahon Mariner: https://amzn.to/2wP5Qvx
GreenField Kickstand ( https://amzn.to/3rCYpEW )
Aluminum water bottle cage ( https://amzn.to/3rKd6ps )
Catseye Wireless Bicycle Computer: https://amzn.to/3IkWSJk
20 inch rear bicycle tire ( https://amzn.to/3lBSvjw )
Schwinn Comfort Seat ( https://amzn.to/3xJjb6O )

All Aluminum frame is lightweight under 30 lbs, and no rust. I still am using the original brake pads and front tire. The 20 inch rear bicycle tire ( https://amzn.to/3lBSvjw ) has been changed 2 times over the past 12 years. The headset needs tightening every 2 years or so.

Some of the first upgrades to my Dahon Mariner was a more comfortable saddle , I got a Schwinn Comfort Seat ( https://amzn.to/3xJjb6O ) as it is more of a upright seat with elastomer rubber bumper suspension and well supported and padded cushion over the original Dahon seat. The draw back is the heavier weight of the new seat.

I upgraded the kickstand to a GreenField Kickstand ( https://amzn.to/3rCYpEW ) for the bike as the longer led was more stable than the original. An aluminum water bottle cage ( https://amzn.to/3rKd6ps ) and Catseye Bike computer ( https://amzn.to/3IkWSJk ) was added next.

Overall this has been a great lightweight folding bike that has traveled with me in my car, mass transit, lunch rides, and out of the county. It has been dependable and low maintenance for years due to its design and aluminum frame.

12v Car Jumper and power stations: https://amzn.to/319zwFm

This version now has hazard lights, LCD dispay with instructions, LCD flash light, and USB C input and outputs, USB A output, and USB micro input. You can charge faster with the USB C input faster. Unlike the prior years with Wireless QI charging, this one doesnt have this feature anymore which is fine as i never used it.

REVIEW: ALLPOWERS 60 Watt Folding Solar Panel with my JACKERY Explorer 240 Power Station.

I bought an ALLPOWERS 60 Watt Folding Solar Panel ( https://amzn.to/3COOcqN ) for my Jackery Explorer 240 – Power Station ( https://amzn.to/3DVeKHW ). I am going to review it in this video.

Stuff in this Video:
ALLPOWERS 60 Watt Folding Solar Panel ( https://amzn.to/3COOcqN )
ROCKPALS 60 Watt Folding Solar Panel ( https://amzn.to/3nJZoRa )
Jackery Explorer 240 – Power Station ( https://amzn.to/3DVeKHW )

My Jackery Explorer 240 – Power Station ( https://amzn.to/3DVeKHW ) is light and compact to bring with you during camping or off the grid. Its convenient and has AC outlet, USB ports for fast charging, and a 12 volt socket . Charging takes about 5-7hours depending of method. With the included AC or 12 volt car charger it charges at 62 Watts and is fully charged in about 5 hours. I wanted to charge it while camping using solar so i bought a ALLPOWERS 60 Watt Folding Solar Panel ( https://amzn.to/3COOcqN ) .

According to Jackery’s manual it can only charge at about 60 Watts max, so buying a 60 Watt portable solar panel seemed like a great idea. Generally the more solar panel wattage the larger your panels will be depending on how its packaged. I wanted something light and compact and had a max charge of 60 watts so i dont damage my Jackery Explorer 240.

The ALLPOWERS 60 Watt Folding Solar Panel ( https://amzn.to/3COOcqN ) works fine on the Jackery 240. I got about 30-40 watts in full sun which was expected as the the manual says it would take about 7 hours to charge using a 60W solar panel.

I generally follow the sun during camping. Moving the panel from my car’s windshield, to the car roof, then to the rear window and trunk, while camping and get a good 4-5 hours of charging in. There are eye holes to hang or tie down the panel as well. I have the Jackery Power station ( https://amzn.to/3DVeKHW ) in my car when charging and just have the wire go into my door weather strip.

Pros:

  • Compatible with other power stations.
  • Compact simple single fold.
  • Good / expected charging speed for solar.
  • Light weight.
  • Two USB charging ports .
  • Can add additional solar panels.

    Cons:
  • Solar Controller USB ports stick out side of the bag zipper.
  • May need a chair or car to act as a stand to follow the sun.

Overall ALLPOWERS 60 Watt Folding Solar Panel ( https://amzn.to/3COOcqN ) a good performer and gets the job done. I would have wanted a solar panel kit that produces closer to the 60W output, however that would mean getting a larger 100 W solar panel for the future.
