Review: Flexopower Atacama 79W

We rarely spend more than two nights in the same location while we travel and have not installed a dual-battery system in our 4Runner. Instead, we have installed a Deka Intimidator AGM Group 31 battery and supplement the battery charge with solar panels. Krista and I have been using solar panels on our extended trips since early 2012 and the system has worked rather well.

Last year we met up with the Flexopower team at Overland Expo West, where they introduced us to their new Atacama 79W solar panel kit. The first thing I noticed was how their 79-watt panel's deployed footprint was significantly smaller than that of the 60-watt Powerfilm panel we had been running. In fact, it produces 32% more power in an 18% smaller footprint.
