Falcon 40 solar panel charges your devices fast

Powertraveller’s Falcon 40 is a 40W foldable solar panel driven by high-efficiency monocrystalline SunPower cells. It’s meant to be used while you’re backpacking or otherwise active in the great outdoors and therefore very useful for documentary makers or video shooters who don’t stay in the direct vicinity of a grid.
