Portable Solar: A Potential Life Saver

Most people these days are weighed down by a variety of portable electronic devices. All these devices use batteries, with charges that last from a few hours to a several days. If you are one of these people, you know how inconvenient it is when your cell phone or laptop's battery die when there is no electric outlet available that you can use to charge your battery.

It is at times like these that a portable solar power battery charger will come in really handy. It frees you from the necessity of a wall adapter for your device. You can just plug your device into the solar charger and it will use the sunlight in a electrochemical process to charge the battery. Many solar battery chargers are able to use any light available, including man made light, to generate energy.

Solar power is often recommended because it is an environmentally friendly and renewable way to provide energy. In direct sunlight, one solar panel can charge a 12 volt battery at a rate of 7 amps.

Battery disposal is starting to become a problem; some landfills are starting to restrict the disposal of batteries because the is some concern that some materials in batteries can contaminate ground water. That is one reason using rechargeable batteries is becoming a must. And now that portable solar power battery chargers are becoming cheaper and more powerful, you can recharge your batteries almost anywhere and any time.

You can recharge most batteries in less than three hours with a modern solar charger in direct sunlight. It is becoming an indispensable part of the frequent traveler's gear.


  1. Solar panels are getting great reviews these days and they are becoming less expensive than before. Today, a lot of people are considering the use of this alternative energy and it's a good investment if you decide to live off-grid. Just make sure to look into the storage capacity and price, among others. So far, I found the Anker 15W Dual Ports USB Solar Charger PowerPort Solar, the Instapark® Mercury 10M Solar Panel Portable and the ECEEN Solar Panel, 10Watts Solar Charger quite good.
