This is where portable solar sets from EcoFlow, Bluetti and other manufacturers come into play that specialize in portable and self-contained power solutions. This allows holidaymakers to fully immerse themselves in the new impressions without running the risk of the power ever going out.
Power Stations, solar modules or combined as practical solar sets are available in different versions, so that holidaymakers can choose the right offer based on performance, portability and cost factor, that fits your needs and your next vacation exactly.
Self-sufficient power supply for caravan / caravan power supply
Most caravan owners are familiar with the following problem: They would like to travel to the most remote and untouched landscapes possible in order to gain new experiences in the midst of nature. Caravans offer the ideal starting point for enjoying the safety and comfort of your own four walls anywhere in the world.
At least in theory. The practice usually looks different. Many campers are reluctant to use their caravan away from campsites for fear of running out of electricity. The concern is anything but unjustified: Once the battery is overloaded, the long-awaited vacation can quickly fall through.
Because campers do not have access to a reliable power supply everywhere. If you would like to stay away from campsites, have a romantic campfire in the wilderness or just want to explore the untouched nature, you cannot avoid a reliable power supply.
Caravan 12 volt power supply / Caravan power supply 230V
Caravan power supply: Most caravans have two different electrical circuits on board: 12 volt direct current and 230 volt alternating current. We all know the 230 volt alternating current from the home sockets to operate household appliances such as coffee machines, laptops, hair dryers, fan heaters, dishwashers and other devices. If you use shore power on campsites, you don't have to worry too much about the caravan power supply.
Anyone who is on the road, on the other hand, has to use the 12-volt power supply in the caravan, which is supplied by the battery of the towing vehicle. The electricity is transmitted to the caravan with the help of the plug connection. A caravan inverter converts the current from 12V to 230V.
Inverter caravan / caravan inverter
Electricity for caravans: The battery of the towing vehicle is the starting point of the 12 volt power supply. A so-called caravan inverter is required for the conversion to 230V. The 12V caravan power supply is converted to 230V on the way if no shore power is available.
And this is where it gets complicated: If you want to use more powerful devices, such as the coffee machine, independently of the Landsturm, you have to plan exactly how much electricity you can use.Otherwise there is a risk that the battery will be completely discharged
Moreover, the conversion from 12V to 230V is accompanied by a considerable loss of electricity, so that even more electricity consumption has to be added to the actual energy requirement: Anything but optimal conditions for a relaxed and carefree holiday.
Many campers can confirm that carelessness can completely drain the car battery overnight. But not only caravan drivers know the problem. The electrical system on boats must also be taken into account to ensure a smooth holiday.
Electrics on boats / sailboat power supply
In addition to the camping car, the boat trip is of course also a great alternative to enjoy your holiday. With a sailing boat, vacationers can go on their next adventure trip completely independent of location, whether in domestic or international waters.
However, the same problems await holidaymakers here as well, which also need to be considered when it comes to the caravan power supply. While the caravan power connection can quickly become a problem for camping holidaymakers, the boat power must be considered equally. The boat power supply runs on 12V like the camper power, in some cases even 24V.
How can the power supply be secured on the high seas? There are different solutions here. In the harbor the boat can be supplied with shore power. Alternatively, power generators are used. However, both solutions can pose a serious security risk under certain circumstances.
The shore power at the port is often inadequately secured, while generators produce a huge background noise and dangerous exhaust gases. Many see this form of power generation as a ticking time bomb and would like to do without this form of power generation completely if possible.
Doing without external electricity leads to further problems: Most vacationers expect a minimum level of comfort, which can only be guaranteed by a stable power supply.
Because if you only turn on the stove for a short time, you can quickly drain the entire battery if you are careless. It is therefore important to use the electricity on board very economically, which affects the quality of the holiday, especially if you are not going on holiday alone but as a family.
The question arises as to how a self-sufficient power supply for caravans / sailboats can be ensured without holidaymakers having to forego the convenience of a stable power supply. The Solar Sets from EcoFlow provide the right answer.
