Projecta has launched two new COMPAC fast chargers and solar panels to produce power supply for a variety of equipment.

The range begins with the PP10 that provides a direct charge for smart watches, phones, GoPros and the like, via its 1.6A port and included 3-in-1 charging cable. This unit weighs only 300 grams and when folded measures just 270 x 170 x 10mm, making it easy to store in a backpack.

The larger PP15 Personal Folding Solar Panel, has its own in-built power bank. Typically it takes between six to eight hours to fully charge. It can rapidly charge phones, smart watches, action cameras and drones.

The power bank lithium-ion battery in the PP15 has 6000 mAh capacity, meaning it stores sufficient power to recharge most of the mentioned equipment multiple times. The three fast charge 3.0A (5V) USB, Lighting and USB-C ports allows for simultaneous charging of multiple devices (at 3.0A combined output) if required and like the smaller PP10, the PP15 can directly charge equipment as well. It weighs 505 grams and measures 270 x 160 x 20mm when folded making it easy to transport.

They are available at automotive, four wheel drive and outdoor stores throughout Australia at approximately $99.00 for the PP10 and $189.00 for the PP15 model.
