Description Technical Specs Extended Information
SunSocket Sun Tracking Solar Generator

The sun-tracking SunSocket™ solar generator is the most advanced and innovative portable energy solution in the world.

It requires no add-on adapters, batteries, cords, or solar panels. Everything you need is already built into the portable and durable case, as well as our proprietary sun-tracking technology.

The high efficiency 60 Watt PV panels inside the case pop up and automatically track the sunlight throughout the day while charging the internal 250 Watt battery. This means that you never have to worry about repositioning your solar panels, and you can power electronic devices such as laptops, multiple phones, or even an electric cooler throughout the entire day with good sunlight.

The SunSocket™ solar generator is perfect for all of your outdoor personal power needs, but more importantly it serves as an essential emergency power supply to keep in your car or RV. We advise that you do not leave home without it!

Take your camping or road trip experience to a whole new level with the SunSocket™ solar generator.

About This Technology

This technology allows the solar panels to automatically track the sunlight throughout the day. A common problem with current solar kits these days is that many users do not realize that solar panels need to face the sun to maximize their efficiency. If the sun moves behind the panels then their efficiency and power drop to almost zero. Even if the solar panels are placed flat on the ground or table, they will only provide power during the couple of hours that the sun is at it's peak position.

Our solar-tracking technology removes this problem, and positions the panels to the location of the highest intensity from the sun so that you always know that you are getting the most power that you can get. Leave the SunSocket solar generator outside while you are camping, or at a picnic, and know that you never have to move it.

About Our Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery

There are many different types of batteries available on the market. We use lithium iron phosphate “LiFePO4” which is the best portable battery available at the moment. Lead-acid batteries are quite common in portable solar solutions and are also cheaper. Unfortunately these batteries are also very heavy. For example, a 250-Watt lead-acid battery might weigh up to 18 pounds. Our entire generator, which has built in solar panels, a 250-Watt LiFePO4 battery as well as a hard metal case, has a combined weight of only 25 pounds. The downside is that lithium iron phosphate is much more expensive than the common lead-acid, but it is worth it. They also have a much longer life span compared to other lithium ion batteries.


2014 CES Innovation Awards

AspectSolar's SunSocket Solar Generator was honored by the CES Innovation Awards in January of 2014. In recognition of its advances in portable power, the judges selected the Solar Generator as a leader in innovation. It was the first product in AspectSolar's line and it debuted our commitment to advanced technology. The generator utilized both highly-efficient monocrystalline PV cells on its solar panels and a lightweight LiFePO4 battery. Never before had portable power like that fit into the size of a briefcase and weighed barely 25 lbs.

Beyond that, the SunSocket Solar Generator was the first in the world to use sun-tracking technology to follow the arc of the sun across the sky throughout the day. This was the only solar generator in the world to use sun-tracking technology at the time. With optimal positioning all day long, the SunSocket Solar Generator could charge its own massive battery in only 5 hours of sunlight.
