We are really excited to announce the introduction of the Generation 6 Zamp 160 watt portable solar system. The 160 watt portable charging system is rated at 8.94 amps per hour in direct sunshine. Expected amp output of 44.7 amps (winter) to 62 or more amps (summer) per day. The Zamp 160 is the second most powerful folding portable solar system available.

From the Manufacturer

The Zamp ZS-160-P is the "Queen of the Road". With it's new digital PWM controller, new adjustable folding/tilting leg system and improved wire harness with SAE connectors,  the Zamp 160 is a serious... built to last 12 volt RV charging system for lead acid, AGM or glass matt batteries. Built from two 80 watt solar modules the ZS-160-P produces a whopping 160 watts at 8.94 amps peak and only weights 35 pounds. The 160 system will work great on any 12 volt or 6 volt battery bank.

Green, Clean and Portable!
Fully assembled and ready to use! Zamp ZS-160-P portable folding solar systems features monocrystalline solar panel technology. This ground mounted solar kit has new adjustable tilt legs for optimum tilt angle. The new built in digital PWM (pulse width modulation) solar charge controller is 100% water and weather proof. The new solar controller is mounted to a hinged plate so that the display hangs level and is easy to read. The Zamp 160 watt portable solar kit comes with 16 foot of cable with removable alligator battery clamps for easy hookup and can be folded up and stored safely in its padded carrying case.

When you arrive at camp the set-up process takes less than 5 minutes. Remove the solar panel from the bag, unfold the modules, adjust the tilt legs and place on the ground in a sunny location pointing south or south-west. Then connect the power leads to your battery. That's it!

Battery Disconnect Kit - The new Zamp ZS-RV-Roof/Sidewall 12 gauge battery quick disconnect kit makes it easy to plug directly into your deep cycle battery in just a few seconds. This kit is a 12" wire harness with ring terminals that connects directly to your battery and an SAE type connector that matches up with the solar panel.The new quick disconnect system allows you a few installation options.

Battery Disconnect Option 1
Drill a hole in the battery box and install the round black female port with attached screws. Connect the red wire from the female port to the positive (+) battery post.
Connect the black female port wire to the negative (-) battery post.

In some cases the pigtail of the ZS-RV-Roof/Sidewall port may not be long enough to reach a battery post. If this is the case simply cut the lead of the ZS-RV-Roof/Sidewall port lead that is too short and add more wire.

Battery Disconnect Option 2
Use this option if you don't want to drill a hole in the battery box. Cut the black male connector off of the cable leaving 10" or more of wire. Save the connector for future use.

Route the battery connection pigtail under the battery box lid. Connect the red positive wire of the pigtail to the batteries positive (+) post. Connect the black wire to the batteries negative (-) post with the included ring terminals. Mount the SAE plug to the battery box or simply let it dangle in a convenient location.

Battery Disconnect Option 3
Drill a hole in the side of the RV just large enough for the roof sidewall port. Apply a bead of silicone around the back side of the port and fasten to the RV with screws. Route the battery connection pigtail to the battery compartment. You may have to lengthen the wires with butt connectors. Connect the red positive wire of the pigtail to the batteries positive (+) post. Connect the black wire to the batteries negative (-) post.

Notes from the Installation Team
For those who prefer a portable system over a roof mount solar system the new generation 6 Zamp 160 watt solar system is the second most powerful folding portable system available. This system can be used for bulk charging large or small battery banks in RV's or off grid Cabins. We recommend securing the system to the ground with tent stakes, sand bags or even logs found at the camp site to keep the wind from blowing the portable system over.

Security can be an issue with portable systems. Pick up a 15' or 20' chain or vinyl coated cable and a couple of small padlocks to secure the system to the RV,  a twheel or the bumper of a vehicle or any other place a chain can be locked.
