New Anker 625 Solar Panel features 100 W power output and USB-C port

Anker has launched the 625 Solar Panel. It converts up to 23% of sunlight into solar energy. It features an adjustable kickstand and carrying handle for portability.

Using the panel, you can charge a power station via XT-60 output at up to 100W. Built into the device are 15W USB-C and 12W USB-A ports. They let you charge two devices simultaneously.

The company claims the device can charge solar generators even in cloudy conditions. An adjustable kickstand allows you to change the panel’s position. The panel has built-in short-circuit and overvoltage protection.

The panel uses Anker’s Suncast technology. Its Smart Sunlight Alignment features tells you when you should adjust the angle of the solar panel to maximize energy captured.

The 625 Solar Panel works with Anker PowerHouse products. You can use the panel to charge the 521, 535 and 757 power station models on the go. The panel can fully charge the 521 PowerHouse in 4.1 hours, the company said.

The solar panel weighs 7 lbs (~5kg) and measures 20.7in x 18.5in x 3.4in when folded for carrying via the handle.

The panel incorporates monocrystalline silicon cells arranged on a durable foundation layer under a scratch- and weather-resistant sunlight-trapping surface.

The Anker 625 Solar Panel comes with a solar charging cable and XT-60 to DC7909 connector, which lets you charge at up to 100W.

You can pick up the panel for $329.99 at Amazon.
