I use the Solar Saga to charge my Jackery 240 which recharges a lot of handheld devices on a daily basis. The panel is lightweight, compact and sets up in less than a minute. While parked in your camper, RV, car, truck, etc. you can place the panel on your dashboard faced toward the sun with the 240 charging on the floorboard. This works well in sunny areas while you are shopping, hiking, and don't want to leave the panel outside. The long cord hook-up works great to allow the Solar Saga to be placed in full sun while the 240 and your devices being charged can be in the shade or inside your vehicle. In my opinion for the size, charging capabilities, and weight, the Solar Saga is ahead of the competition and the ease of use is a big factor.
I can safely say that once you are in the Jackery family you will be hooked and looking for the next addition to it! So when they came out with the new 60 watt solar panel I was very excited to get my hands on one.I’ve had some time to test mine out now and a really like it. I was amazed by how small it was when I pulled it out of the box! It’s 11” x 16” and only a half inch thick all folded up. It’s tri-folded with snaps to keep it together and has a pocket on one side for the 8 foot cable that comes with it. Everything is very self contained and even has a built in handle for carrying.I tested it out for several days and found that even though it’s rated for up to 60 Watts it mostly put out a steady 36 - 38 Watts with occasional spikes into the 50 and 60 Watt range. I’m in New England and we aren’t into the brightest days of the year yet so that output may change. However even at 36 - 38 Watts it manages to charge up at a reasonable speed. The regular wall charger only sends out 41 Watts so the solar panel is not far behind in output.The manual says to be careful how you clean it (use a soft cloth) and to not let it get wet. I found that that is true with the cleaning. You don’t want to scratch up the panels or you will impact your output. And you will want to make sure it’s put away if you think a storm is going to come through overnight.All in all, I’m really happy with this product and look forward to putting it to good use! It is incredibly portable and will do a good job at keeping your Jackery battery packs fully charged! I’m a big solar power fan and this little setup of the 60 Watt Solar Panel and Jackery 160 is a great tool to have for whatever adventure your heading out into!Great job Jackery! Keep up the good work! I look forward to what you come out with next!
Today was my test day and I must say I am extremely happy with this product. After reviewing many videos, and product reviews I chose the Jackery 240 watt solar generator. Besides camping, I live in a hurricane prone area and when we lose power it could be weeks before we get it back. With low wattage LED lights and the ability to keep my emergency radios and laptop charged it provides the security to my wife and I. Having a gasoline generator is fine for a little while but eventually you run out of fuel, you need to change the oil constantly and chances are if you don't have power neither will the gas stations. I have charged my laptop, two phones, hand held radios, emergency lighting and tested it with my CPAP and all worked well. When I need to evacuate this will go with me and when I return having a solar generator will be vital for communication. I would also like to mention the sales / service department that answered all of my questions. I took this with me to the VFW post told them why I got this and told them about the other products offered by Jackery, and my fellow post members were interested and are considering getting one of there own.
This is the jackery solar saga 60 watt and the power station 160. I picked the less powerful power station because it has a c port for Nintendo switch. I wish I'd gone bigger now, but everyone has to start somewhere. My budget was limited. This station runs my Ryobi fan (kick-ass fan but charging that bulky battery in stealth mode was tricky so I was going without a fan in California valley heat) on high plus charges my phone and Nook tablet all at the same time. I've tested it and it runs my grooming clippers too. I have a lumi solar lantern for light but this power station has a light on it if I need it.This winter when the sun isn't up to the task the 160 power station will fully charge at a wall outlet in 5 hours.
I'm an avid astrophotographer. I wanted dependable solar panels to charge my Jackery Explorer 500 and 240 power stations during the day, then use that power to run my imaging rig all night while shooting planets and deep space images. I ended up buying both the Jackery SolarSaga 60 watt and 100 watt panels and I couldn't be happier with how they perform. The 60 watt is a great match for the Explorer 240. The 240's charge controller limits the input to about 40 watts so the 60 watt panel is perfect for it. Even with that limitation, it charges the 240 quickly. I use the 100 watt panel to charge the larger Explorer 500 power station and they work well together. I have used this 60 watt panel to charge the Explorer 500 but it takes a little longer. The 500 can charge at around 80 watts so it saves time using the larger panel for charging it.The 60 watt panel is easy to use because it's very light and has a handy kickstand on the back to get it angled up at the sun. It has snaps to keep it folded when not in use. The material is very high quality and should stand up to heavy use for many years.I did buy a Rockpals 60 watt panel and while it works well, it's output isn't quite as good as the Jackery Solarsaga 60 nor is it as easy to use (see photo). The Jackery produces more power with just the three panels vs the Rockpal's four panels. The Jackery power stations charged by the panels allow me to do some nice planetary and deep sky work.
I bought this solar panel to go with my Jackery 240. I waited for this to come back into stock as I wanted something very portable in size so I would be able to hold it in one hand along with the Jackery or pack it in a backpack. I also wanted to make sure I got a solar panel that was completely compatible with the Jackery 240. It does a great job in recharging my Jackery.
Very happy with the Solar Saga 60 panel. Most of the benefits have already been listed by other reviewers. For me pairing the Jackery 240 with this panel made sense especially during the sale! I was looking for convenience, easy of use (plug and play) and portability. Yes, the panel can only be used to charge the Jackery 240/160 with the included connector, however someone with the skills and equipment could probably figure a way to adapt it to other devices. Also, the panel does not have usb outlets, but that's what the 240 is for! When I tested the panel on a partly cloudy day it charged the 240 between 34-38 watts. Looking forward to a clear day and seeing what the panel output is.
The SolarSaga 60w is amazing. The solar panel combined with the Explorer 160 made for a fantastic day on the lake. We were able to inflate way too many floats, run a radio, and charge a few phones without any issues thanks to being able to quickly top off the battery. I was surprised how quickly this panel was able to charge my battery. This will be with us on every camping trip and lake day.
