SolarSaga 80: Double solar panel for all weathers

ISPO Award 2022 for Jackery SolarSaga 80

With the SolarSaga 80, Jackery brings a new, lightweight solar panel onto the market. Due to its double-sided use, the panel can be used very efficiently.

Double-sided usable solar panel

Innovations are not always recognizable at first glance. This is also the case with the Jackery Solar Saga 80, a solar panel that can be used on both sides. The ISPO Award jury judged the solar module to be extremely useful in outdoor use, Jackery was delighted with the award: "The "ISPO Award" is an international design prize awarded for authoritative products in the global sports industry. As a portable, clean energy preferred by outdoor athletes, Jackery receiving the ISPO Award is a sign of quality recognition for our brand."

More power generation for the same area, a clever idea. The panel also has an exceptional 92% transmission rate across the solar cells – allowing sunlight to pass through completely and increasing solar efficiency. The solar cell on the back absorbs reflected and diffuse sunlight and increases the conversion rate to a total of 25%. The reflective storage bag can effectively improve the amount of light obtained on the back of the solar panel, so that the power generation efficiency of the product is 30% higher than conventional solar panels. Efficiency is therefore a top priority for the SolarSaga 80.

The solar panel has the right properties for robust outdoor use. Thanks to 2.8 mm low-iron and fully tempered glass, the SolarSaga 80 can withstand potential external influences. The unique corner design provides additional strength. In addition, the solar panel is IP68 waterproof and dustproof certified, making it the ideal solar panel for harsh weather conditions.

Up to 12 SolarSaga 80 solar modules can be connected.

SolarSaga 80 - contemporary regenerative energy source

The double panel is comparatively small and easy to transport. It weighs just 5.1 kilograms. An integrated stand is practical. The rubber-lined corner elements of the stand ensure a secure stand. The solar module is not foldable, but this is understandable due to its size. "We are committed to providing millions of households with green energy solutions, making modern life greener and lower carbon, creating a new way of life and promoting harmony in the world, while also putting clean energy sources other than solar energy, such as wind energy, on our future development map," a Jackery spokesperson emphasises the sustainable utility.

Let's move on to other thoughtful details of the SolarSaga 80. A two-meter extension cable provides additional charging distance. The material of the cable is also flexible enough for outdoor use. A highlight is the integrated transport bag: this is lined with reflective material and has adjustable straps that allow flexible adjustment of the angle of reflection to achieve maximum sun absorption.

The brand new 80 W solar panels are fully compatible with all Jackery Power stations and offer a premium range of charging options, with up to twelve 80 W solar panels charging simultaneously. As the icing on the cake, Jackery offers its customers a 3-year warranty for every purchase of the Solar Saga 80 solar panel and an additional two-year warranty extension. This, by the way, comes automatically when purchased via the official website.

Due to its convenient size, the SolarSaga 80 is easy to transport.

Jackery: Experienced and award winning brand

Jackery has won the CES Innovation Award, the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Award, and has been named the best solar generator by the New York Times, CNET, Digital Trends and others. "We have a professional and rigorous R&D team that researches and develops the Jackery series products. Real outdoor experts use our products and make constructive suggestions so that the Jackery brand can be constantly improved," said company spokesperson.

What the ISPO Award jury says about the SolarSaga 80:
“It's very ingenious how Jackery has developed this solar panel. Efficiency has been optimized by considering also the useful back part of the panel, which is now exploited to absorb extra solar energy by reflection. The panel is light to transport and easy to install; can be mounted in series to increase the capture capability, it seems very durable and well-built for outdoor activities use.” ISPO Award Jury
