Bifacial Portable Solar Panel 220W – Power your everyday appliances at home and off-grid with sustainable solar energy. The thin, one-piece tempered glass design makes it five times tougher than comparable panels with half the thickness of traditional tempered glass. Capable of withstanding heat up to 300°F, it’s safe to say it can resist the elements.
Bifacial Portable Solar Panel 220W EcoFlow
EcoFlow’s 220W Bifacial Portable Solar Panel is two in one. With a 220W primary side and a 155W side on the back for ambient light, you can capture up to 25% more solar energy and charge your portable power station even faster.
It’s a portable solar panel designed from the ground up to be compact. 10% smaller than comparable 220W panels, it saves space with thinner tempered glass and less surface area required for the same input.
It comes with its own carry case so you can take it anywhere. Once you arrive at your destination, simply unfold it and use it as a kickstand to get your sun exposure just right. We’ve raised the bar with this panel. It’s completely water and dust-tight. Rain, wind, or shine, your panel is safe with an IP68 waterproof rating.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the 220W Bifacial Solar Panel generate a full 220W of power?
In most cases, it is normal for a solar panel not to deliver its full nominal power. Some of the reasons why this happens, as well as some suggestions for getting closer to the nominal power figure, are given below.
- Light Intensity. The amount of light shining on the panel will result in fluctuations in the power output. You are more likely to achieve nominal power output figures closer to those obtained under test conditions when using the product on a clear day during the midday sun than when using the product in the morning or later in the afternoon. Weather conditions will also affect the amount of sunlight that shines on the panel. For example, you are much less likely to achieve the figures for nominal power in hazy, cloudy, or rainy conditions.
- Surface Temperature. The temperature of the solar panel surface will also affect the amount of power generated. The lower the surface temperature of the panel, the more power will be produced. For example, solar panels generate more power when used during the winter than during the summer, and this is completely normal. Solar panels generally reach temperatures close to 60°C (140°F) during summer. This reduces nominal power by 13%, despite the higher levels of light shining on the panel.
- Sunlight Angle. In optimal light conditions, the sun’s rays should remain perpendicular to the surface of the panel for best performance. Power output is only marginally impacted by sunlight hitting the panel within 10° on either side of this 90° angle.
- Panel Shading. The surface of the solar panel should not be shaded during use. Shading caused by shadows, foreign objects, and glass can all greatly reduce power output. Performance Issues Caused by Malfunctioning Panels: If the panel still isn’t generating power or its output remains far below expected nominal power figures after addressing the issues above, there may be an issue with the panel itself. Please contact Customer Support for assistance.
How much power can the 220W Bifacial Solar Panel generate under normal conditions?
This depends first and foremost on weather conditions. Generally speaking, on a clear day with no clouds in the sky, sunlight hitting the panel at a 90° angle usually generates 160W–180W of power in the 220W panel. (Current light conditions are normally 800W–900W/m2 (74.3W–83.6W/ft2) with a panel temperature of 50°C (122°F) under test conditions. Nominal power ratings are based on 1000W/m2 (92.9W/ft2) in AM1.5 conditions with a panel temperature of 25°C (77°F) under test conditions. Power output figures close to nominal values were normally observed in the midday sun during the winter.)
What should I know about the operating temperature, storage, and use of the 220W Bifacial Solar Panel?
The operating temperature of the Bifacial Solar Panel is -20°C–85°C (-4°F–185°F). The panel should be folded into its original shape and stored in its Protective Case (Kickstand), which provides sufficient protection for the product. To extend the service life of the panel, ensure that the product is not exposed to external forces/impacts when not in use. The solar panel itself is made of glass and must not be dropped, pierced, bent, or sat on. These actions may break the glass and render the panel unusable. Any such damage will not be covered by the free warranty.
