HUBi SolarHub Solar Lighting & Power System Information
Power your adventures on your boat with this sophisticated compact and portable starter solar power kit. Built with the very latest in technology, featuring a Lithium battery pack and premium solar panel, this solar panel kit provides adaptable charging for electronics - all from sunlight!
The Solar Panel:
The HUBi SolarHub Solar Lighting and Power System is a multipurpose power pack that is charged using the sunlight captured from the solar panel. The solar panel can either sit on your boat, on the riverbank using the provided ground spike or on your dashboard (sunlight that travels through glass can affect the efficiency of the panel). The 2K solar panel measures approximately 310 x 222 x 29mm and then 10K solar panel measures 642mm x 282mm x 29mm and consists of a glass solar panel surrounded by a robust aluminium frame with protective plastic corners.
The Power Hub:
HUBi Solar Power kits uses the very latest Lithium batteries to capture, store and transfer power gathered in from the solar panel. The HUBi 2K power hub features a 2Ah lithium battery pack and the HUBi 10K power hub features a 10Ah lithium battery. Both power hubs come complete with a built in power metre that instantly indicates how much charge is in the battery and the on/off switch allows you to control the use of power whilst the two USB ports, one 'cigarette' 12 volt socket and two 12 volt inline socket outputs (for the LED lanterns) provide power ports for your mobile telephone, tablet, technology and gadgets.
The HUBi 10K benefits from the ability to be expanded to connect together a total of three HUbi 10k, 10Ah Power Hubs. By connecting three HUBi Power Hubs together electronically you have the benefit of collecting and storing even more power so that you can run your equipment for longer. The HUBi will intelligently equalise the power between the expanded Power Hubs for improved efficiency. If you wish to expand your HUBi please contact us.
The LED Lanterns:
As a useful alternative to your existing cabin lights that run from your boat battery, the HUBi Solar Power Kit has two individually switched LED lanterns that can be run directly from the Power Hub. Simply plug each lantern into the 'Light' power sockets and hang the lanterns in position using the provided hooks - which can hook over canopy bars nicely. The 4m cable should provide you with plenty of wire to have the lanterns conveniently placed onboard removing some of the strain of power from your main boat batteries!
HUBi Solar Power Kits come with everything you should need to start using Solar Power on board your boat. Along with the main power pack, solar panel and lights the starter pack comes with wires to connect the solar panel to the power pack and wires to connect the LED lanterns too.
A collapsible solar panel ground spike provides you with the option to move the panel into sunlight while it moves and allows the panel to sit at an optimum angle to collect sunlight. The LED lanterns also come complete with hanging clips which prove useful when hanging on canopy rails, for example, in the cockpit.
The versatility of this boat solar panel kit is far reaching. Whether you are boating, camping, travelling, hiking, at home or in the garden or even working in remote areas this solar kit could provide you with much need portable power.
We have played around this kit on a Freeman 23 and it seems to work nicely. The solar panel could sit on the cabin top (remember to secure this) or, if you are moored up, on the riverbank with the ground spike. The power hub sits conveniently on the dashboard offering additional power supply and the two lanterns can hang from the hood bars late at night offering light without draining your boat battery - also great in a tent too!

- Mobile Phones - iPhones, etc.
- Tablets - iPads, Kindles, Hudls, etc
- Torches & Search Lights
- Reading Lights
