On a 3 week test in the South African Winter a team at Lekker Camper could keep their laptops, ipod, mobile phones, camera batteries and 12V lights fully charged and the fridge running at all times. They also had enough power to keep a 220V low wattage light on at night time. The efficiency of the solar package is dependant on the following factors:
amount of direct sunlight hoursnumber and type of devices charged how often and duration of opening the fridge - the more you open it, the more power you will consume! charge devices during the day so that maximum power can be stored for night time usenote: only low wattage items can be charged and used - the system is NOT suitable for hair straighteners or hair dryers!
