We also used two Goal Zero Boulder 100 Briefcase solar panels plugged into a Goal Zero Yeti 1000 battery "generator" to supply power to an AeroVironment Level 1 charging cable, which was connected to the Energica EVA motorcycle. At a 2A draw from the motorcycle, over 5 hours, the bike gained 8% state of charge. The battery was pre-charged to full using a larger array of solar panels the day before, so all energy delivered to the motorcycle was 100% from the sun.
