LONSDALE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA; REDARC, the leading Overland authority in power management launches a suite of solar products in North America.
No more melted ice, no more warm drinks, no more worrying about state of charge, no more compromises. Leave the crowds behind and get off-grid with REDARC’s 12-volt solar range. Harness the unlimited power of the sun with REDARC’s new flexible solar blankets, portable folding panels and permanent fixed panels. Available in 50 to 200 watt capacities and supported by a complete range of accessories that make installation a breeze.
With the launch of solar, REDARC becomes the premier one stop shop for off-grid in-vehicle power. REDARC’s solar range is diverse, light, tough, and efficient. Combining this rugged performance with free green power gives overlanders, vanlifers, and any vehicle-based adventurer the confidence to explore any landscape or campground.
REDARC’s solar panels and accessories are the perfect complement to an existing REDARC 12v dual battery system, or a great place to begin incorporating battery charging capabilities. For the ultimate off-grid power set up, pair REDARC’s new solar panels with their already popular range of BCDC Dual In-Vehicle DC-DC Chargers or Manager30 Battery Management System. Both systems feature next-generation battery charging technology and Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) solar regulators, so a separate regulator is not required. These enable charging from both the solar panels and the alternator simultaneously. And, with built-in Green Power Priority, it will select solar charging first, meaning less load on the alternator.
REDARC’s line of solar products have been torture-tested in the rugged Australian Outback, and specifically designed for backcountry use where efficiency, durability, and reliability are key to having an enjoyable and safe outing.
REDARC is proud to offer a robust line of panels ranging in styles and wattage.
REDARC’s fixed solar panels offer simplicity and are perfect for the seasoned adventurer or those looking for a permanent, no fuss solution. Fixed panels are the most cost effective and will be the best option for trailers and truck campers. Being fixed to either a car, truck, camper, or trailer means never having to worry about adjusting the angle, positioning, or set up. REDARC’s fixed solar panels are available in a range of sizes from 50 to 200 watts, offering plenty of flexibility.

If only travelling a few times a year and priorities are ease of use, value and flexibility, portable folding solar panels are a great option. REDARC’s next generation folding solar panels offer a small, ultra-lightweight solution, making them quick and easy to set up and pack down. They’re up to 50% lighter than other popular panels on the market and available in 120 and 200 watt options. Due to their high portability, they’re quick and easy to move making the most of patchy sunlight.
If traveling for long periods, or space is a premium, REDARC’s flexible and convenient solar blankets are the perfect solar solution. REDARC’s SunPower and Amorphous solar blankets can be folded into a neat package and offer flexibility that’s not available with fixed or folding panels; they can be draped over the hood or windshield, laid on the ground or hung off the side of an awning. No matter where the sun is coming from, REDARC’s solar blankets can be positioned for maximum efficiency. When it’s time to hit the road, just fold it up and slide it under a seat.
“We are very proud of our solar line and are confident it will be as popular in North America as it is in Australia,” says Marion Jones REDARC’s International Marketing Manager. “The steady charge that solar can provide is key for off-grid travel or when you find that perfect campsite you don’t want to leave.
