Streamlight Launches Vehicle Solar Charging Panel

Streamlight, Inc. recently introduced the Streamlight SolarStream, a supplemental solar charging panel for emergency responder and fleet vehicles. The Streamlight SolarStream helps to offset battery drain from computer systems and other rechargeable electronics when a vehicle is off, extending battery life and limiting battery-related vehicle maintenance.

A thin-film amorphous silicon charging panel, the Streamlight SolarStream adheres to a variety of contoured surfaces. The panel allows for 14 watts of maximum power in full sunlight.

“With the Streamlight SolarStream, first responders can charge lights, radios and other electronics with less fear of draining their vehicle’s battery,” said Ray Sharrah, president and CEO. “The Streamlight SolarStream uses more of the available sunlight because it is not dependent on a mounting angle, as required with other systems.”

The charging system works by dispensing up to one amp of current to a vehicle’s battery, helping to prevent it from draining completely and reducing the need for jump-starts and frequent battery replacement due to battery drain. The SolarStream maintains a trickle charge to the vehicle battery even in low sun and cloudy conditions, and is both heat and shade tolerant.
