This powerful solar charger is one of our gear essentials for all of our expeditions - and it's a great purchase for a number of reasons. For anyone who needs power on the go, this solar charger is the perfect way to keep your gadget batteries charged in even some wild and remote settings.
On safari where lodges don't have power (or have power outages), it is a great tool for keeping your devices charged so you don't have to live without them. The same applies to camping trips or multi-day hiking, biking, and trail running adventures. Charge your gadgets directly from the solar panel - much more efficient than other products which use a built in battery pack which needs to be charged before you can plug in your devices, saving you time. Recharge your sat nav or mobile while you picnic on road trips, so you're never caught without the battery life to find your way or take a memorable photo on your phone.
For energy-conscious individuals, this solar charger presents an alternative to using electricity to power your gadgets even when you're at home and you'll be impressed by the speed at which your devices are charged - a simple way to get started with off-grid living and good environmental practices and save money on energy.
Two voltage-regulated USB output sockets to charge most of the latest devices directly and at high speed. This means it works with smartphones, tablets, bluetooth headphones, sat navs, torches, and other small devices which charge from a computer or a 5V mains charger. Not suitable for DVD players or laptops. Powerful enough to trickle charge in cloudy conditions, making it useful all year round and across a range of locations.
Woven into a tough waterproofed polyester fabric case and with a pocket on the back to keep the USB sockets protected, this charger is also rainproof. It folds shut with magnetic clasps to keep the panel compact and protected while on the move. There are ten mounting loops around the panel to attach it to a backpack, bicycle, etc. for power on the go. Its frosted surface captures more light and is PET-laminated for durability. Built-in voltage regulators and diodes ensure a high voltage isn't sent to your device in bright sunlight and the panels won't attempt to draw power from your devices at night. Rival panels may not include this and could slowly damage the devices being charged.
Includes a fast-charge micro USB cable which can charge your smart phone at high speed from the solar panel or almost any USB socket.
