Our new and exclusive JK Solar Charging Screen is one of the coolest products we’ve made in our 30+ year history! Designed by JK and Texenergy, it’s a fantastic way to ensure that your main vehicle battery, and your leisure battery, never runs out of juice.

The folding solar charger screen folds out to cover your vehicle’s windscreen, and captures huge amounts of energy from the sun before converting it into electricity. It can be mounted on the inside or outside of the vehicle, and can be plugged directly into your vehicle’s ancillary 12v power supply or used to top up and recharge your mobile phone, laptop and other gear.

We're so proud with the work we've put into designing and refining the JK Solar Charging Screen, and so happy with the end result, that we've applied for and have been granted registered design status. (6196983.)

At a glance:

• Can be quickly mounted to the inside or the outside of your vehicle’s windscreen, using the suction clamps,

• The system is fully self-contained, with no need to drill, cut or alter the electrics of your vehicle,

• Easy to set up, with no need to alter any settings or adjust any dials – simply plug in and charge up,

• Uses 12 highly-efficient monocrystalline solar panels to capture huge amounts of energy,

• Includes USB-C and USB-A outlets, so you can power up your mobile phone,

• Includes an integrated power controller, so it won't damage your batteries or devices

• Folding solar screen collapses down to be smaller than a tote bag, with comfortable carry handles, so you can take it anywhere.

Fitting information

We’ve designed the JK Solar Charging Screen to fit on any vehicle which uses 12-volt electricity. It will work just as well in a VW T6 Transporter as it would in a Splitscreen camper which has been converted to 12v.

There are two cables included with the charging screen, one with a 12v DC charger connection, which measures 2 metres long; and another with crocodile clips, which measures 3 metres long. You’ll need to use these crocodile clips to hook the JK Solar Charging Screen up directly to your vehicle battery on modern vehicles, as the 12v ‘cigar lighter’ socket does not support backcharging.

Electrical information:

The JK Solar Charging Screen comes with a power port, with a DC outlet, two USB outlets and a USB-C outlet. You’ll also get a three metre charging cable which can connect the power port to the 12v system in your vehicle, which will only work on older vehicles which have two-way sockets.

Modern vehicles: Please note that you won’t be able to charge your vehicle battery via the 12v ‘cigar lighter’ socket in modern vehicles, as these are one-way only.

Plug and play!

One of our favourite things about the design of the JK Solar Charging System is that the hardest part of setting it up is going the suction clamps, and they’re really easy!

Once the screen is in place, it’s easy to plug it into your vehicle’s electrics using the ‘cigar lighter’ to connect it to the 12v system, or plug in your phone, laptop, GPS, handheld games console, lava lamp, 8-track player or anything else you might take camping with you! There’s no need to cut a hole in your roof, or alter your vehicle’s wiring, or bond the solar panels to your roof – when you’re done with it, just unfold it and tuck it away in a door pocket, cupboard or behind the seat.

A game-changer for Van Lifers

If you’re a dedicated Van Lifer, then our JK Solar Charging Screen could be an absolute game changer! Use your laptop, camera, DVD player, fridge, lights, sink, cooker, radio or TV as much as you want, safe in the knowledge that you can charge your kit – and your vehicle batteries – straight back up again when the sun rises.

The charging cable which is built into the unit measures three meters long, so there’s plenty of range for you to be able to walk around while charging, or hang out in the back of your camper while the solar screen is set up at the front.

You can take it with you

Because it folds up to just 37 cm by 30 cm by 6 cm, our solar charger screen is great for charging up your phones at the beach, while you’re climbing, or if you’re just hanging out in the garden, park or a festival. It’s easy to carry around, thanks to the comfortable sewn-in handles, and can be folded out or put away again seconds.

We took one of the test samples of the JK Solar Charging Screen with us when we went rock climbing at Portlands, and it worked great!

What does 120W actually mean?

In simple terms, without going into the mind-bending scientific formulae, it means your JK Solar Charging Screen will give you 120-Watt hours (120wh) of power for each hour of sunlight it gets. A 120-Watt solar panel is more than enough for running smaller electrical devices like lights, phone chargers etc., and should certainly be enough to handle things like a fridge, depending on its energy demands.
