HET SolarBlatz 20 solar panel/Power 50 battery
Zero Emissions Expeditions is using a 20 watt rollable solar panel and a lightweight 50 watt battery on this expedition. The panel and battery are manufactured by an American company, Human Edge Tech (HET). HET produces an array of expedition-worthy solar and satellite communications equipment. Need to broadcast on the Web from the top of Mt. Everest? No problem. HET can set you up. The staff at HET is composed of experienced high-altitude and polar expedition members. They’ve taken their equipment to the edge of human endurance and it has performed and excelled.
Zero Emissions Expeditions has been using the HET SolarBlatz 20 watt panel coupled with the HET Power 50 watt battery. ZEE is proud to say that since arriving in Australia on 4 December 2009, we have not used even one wall socket to power our equipment. All power has come from the sun. Free. Whether draped over the tent, unrolled on the ground or mounted on the rear deck of the kayak, the HET SolarBlatz 20 and Power 50 have performed exceptionally.
Thanks to Tom at HET for all his expert input when Zero Emissions Expeditions needed the lightest solar equipment out there. HET has helped ZEE find its “human edge”.
