EF ECOFLOW 160 Watt Portable Solar Panel

EF ECOFLOW 160 Watt Portable Solar Panel is a lightweight and relatively compact foldable and portable solar panel that can be used to recharge solar generators/power stations and other compatible devices.

While EF ECOFLOW 160 Watt Portable Solar Panel is highly recommended for EF ECOFLOW power stations/solar generators, it can be used for charging/powering any compatible solar generator/device that accepts MC4 connectors (with or without suitable adapter) and solar panels with an output voltage of ~18.2 volts.

EF ECOFLOW 160 Watt Solar Panel Features And Specifications

As its label suggests, EF ECOFLOW 160 Watt solar panel features ~160W nominal power - this is its output power in ideal conditions.

In real life, one may expect 100-120W, depending on the local conditions, including panel angle, sun position, weather, temperature, etc.

EF ECOFLOW 160 Watt solar panel is stored and transported in a very convenient transport bag with physical dimensions of 26.9 x 16.9 x 1.0 inches (~68.5 x 43.0 x 2.5 cm) and weight of 15.4 pounds (~7 kg), of which the solar panel is 12.3 pounds (~5.6 kg).

The transport bag also doubles as a kickstand case, helping the users unfold and set the solar panel quickly.


Unfolded physical dimensions are 26.9 x 62.6 x 1.0 inches (~68.5 x 159.0 x 2.5 cm).

EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel uses cells made of monocrystalline silicon, ensuring energy efficiency of 21-22%.

Other technical specs include:

  • Open Circuit Voltage: 21.4V,
  • Running Voltage: 18.2V,
  • Short Circuit Current: 9.6A,
  • Running Current: 8.8A.

EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel is designed to be robust and reliable - among other things, it features an IP67 rating and is very resilient to water.


Note: some sources even claim an IP68 rating, but I would never submerge it underwater to test it. Personally, if there is a danger of rain, protect your EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panels and especially their MC4 connectors, and they will last for a long time. IMHO, of course.

d clips

EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel also comes with D-clips, allowing the user to set the panels and adjust the angle toward the sun, which is very important when trying to harvest as much energy as possible.

mc4 connectors

EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel comes with MC4 connectors, allowing users to connect it to EF ECOFLOW solar generators/power stations, including River and Delta, or any compatible device that accepts MC4 connectors and ~18.2V running voltage.

However, EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel doesn't feature USB charging port - many foldable solar panels combine MC4 or similar output ports with USB charging ports, letting users charge their USB-charged devices directly from solar panels.

But, to charge USB-charged devices using EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel, one must first charge a solar generator/power station with USB charging ports (most do have).

Long Story Short: EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel is easy to store and transport in cars, RVs, trucks, boats, and similar, and can be quickly set to harness the solar energy and store it in a compatible solar generator/power station.

EF ECOFLOW 160W solar panel doesn't feature USB charging port(s) - this can be an issue for some users, but with IP67 and robust construction, it is one of the most popular solar panels in its class.
