Extension Cable for Jackery SolarSaga 100W Panels or Go Power Portable Solar  


Hi, can you recommend an extension cable for my Jackery Solar Saga 100w solar panels that will work my trailer Go Power Solar on the Side port? Thanks much.

I do not have an extension for the Jackery panels, but I have a better solution.

I contacted Jackery and asked if their connections were standard XLR or SAE. They replied, "Please know that Jackery output is 18V, port size is 8mm with a cord about 3m. As long as your RV meets these requirements, then can use it. But since our solar panels are not waterproof currently, we do not recommend to use it in an RV setting."

Since they do not state "standard XLR or SAE" I will not have an extension. Also know that on any solar system, you should keep cord lengths to a minimum to reduce amperage loss.

If you want portable solar panels that are guaranteed to work with the Go Power system you have, I would recommend the Go Power # 34282729. This portable kit comes with a 12 foot cord and it's own controller, so you can easily move this to other RV's or suitable sized batteries using the multiple connector types. This kit can be left out in the rain and snow without concern. If you still need an extension you can use the Go Power # 34270356 thirty foot extension.
