In this video, I demo and review a compact and lightweight complete solar system from Lensun Solar Energy.

The kit includes a 200-watt semiflexible solar panel array that folds up into a super portable 16″x16″ square. It also consists of a waterproof EPever 15A MPPT controller, various hookup cables, a canvas carrying bag, and an EPever WiFi data box.

Accessories Included

I tested its charging power output when flat on the ground and then perpendicular to the ground for the best sun angle. Then I performed a simulated rain test, soaking the system pretty good for several minutes with water. It handled the shower and kept right on charging and dried out within an hour’s time.

  • Low-Quality Alligator Clamps
  • No Fuse on Battery Line
  • Temp Sensor Too Close to Controller

I found the 200 watts fell short of rated amps and watts. But still pretty good considering its a flexible folding panel and my test environment wasn’t optimal. Overall I feel the Lensum 200W Solar Blanket Kit may be quite useful for campers and RVers where storage space is at a premium. Or folks that want an easy way to attach a solar charging system to their batteries.
