Global Solar Energy (Tucson Arizona) has designed and built lightweight Portable Power PacksTM (P3s) for the Military for years, having developed the first lightweight foldable solar panels for the United States Marine Corp beginning in 1998. Their current designs are a result of continuous interaction and field demonstrations. This panel has been designed for rapid field recharging of 24v or 12v deep cycle/lead-acid, BB390 and BB590 nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH), and BB2590 lithium ion (Li-ion) rechargeable batteries. In 2003, this product line was tested and approved by CECOM (Communications – Electronics Command) and subsequently they deployed over 770 solar panels for recharging the Bren-tronics BB2590 soldier battery pack. To date, there have been over 10,000 P3 modules sold worldwide through integrators, distributors, and government organizations. Global Solar has averaged less than a 1% rate or return per year for all P3 modules sold. Global Solar’s P3’s are rugged and durable. They have passed the United States Army’s series of standard environmental tests, MIL-STD-810E.
