Our best value portable solar blanket… ever!
The first thing you’ll notice is how compact this solar blanket is. It folds down to just 370mm by 350mm, but with a rated output of up to 10.7A per hour it’s powerful enough to run a large campsite. The blanket is made from a durable poly/cotton canvas and has 12 panels, all constructed from certified A-grade monocrystalline solar cells.
The package includes everything you need to operate the blanket, including a 20A solar regulator, 6m extension cable and battery clamps, all with Anderson-style plugs for super easy setup.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to use the included controller?
You must always use a controller between the solar panel and your battery, but if you have your own solar controller (e.g. built into a camper trailer or RV) you can use that instead. We include an Anderson plug connector in the box.
How do I position my solar blanket?
You can place your solar mat anywhere it receives direct sunlight. This might be on your windscreen or bonnet, on top of your awning, on your roof rack, or on the ground. You will experience a moderate increase in output if you are able to angle the panels 30-45° to the sun.
If one cell is shaded or blocked, does the whole blanket stop producing electricity?
No. Our blanket is designed with bypass diodes to ensure that if one cell is not producing power the rest of the cells are unaffected.
Can I leave my blanket out in the weather?
Yes, Hardkorr Lifestyle solar blankets are designed to withstand rain. However, your panel will not generally produce much electricity during inclement weather so we recommend you bring it inside at these times. If your solar mat gets wet, please ensure it is thoroughly dried prior to storage.
Which panel do I need for my setup?
Start by finding out the total current draw of all the equipment you wish to use. Multiply this figure by the number of hours the equipment is generally used to get the total amp hours consumed. Solar panels can generally provide their stated output for 8 hours per day, so multiply the stated output by 8 hours to find out how many amp hours your solar mat can provide. Here’s a worked example:
You use a Hardkorr 6-bar camp kit for 4 hours per day (3A x 4h = 12Ah)
You use a fridge for 24 hours per day that draws 1.5A per hour (1.5A x 24h = 36Ah)
You use a TV for 3 hours per day that draws 5A per hour (5A x 3h = 15Ah)
Total consumption = 63Ah
Add 25% buffer = 63 x 1.25 = 78.75Ah
Solar panel output required = 78.75Ah / 8 = 9.84A
Hardkorr’s Lifestyle 200w portable solar blanket produces up to 10.7A per hour on a clear day and will be sufficient in these circumstances.
