Pictures can not do justice to the Sunlabz Solar Charger. This portable charger is so compact and sleek. It would easily fit into a backpack for hiking or in the trunk of your car as an emergency item. It is just really well put together.
The charger is pretty much made for small electronics and transfers power directly to a 5V USB output. There are no batteries to store or cords to finagle. The panel is 13W and the solar cells have a 22% transfer rate.
This also means you must have the charger in the sun while powering your devices, there is no banking. Plus, you can ONLY charge devices that use a USB port. No kettles, toasters, flashlights, etc.
That is the only downside I see with the product, but understand that those items also draw more power and would probably require a much larger set up. This set is so compact and tight, you will appreciate it's ability to charge your devices and take up such minimal space.
I would highly recommend this for backpackers/hikers/campers/emergency situations. But...you may also be able to plug this in near a sunny window and charge your devices with the sun on a regular basis. I have argon windows so we do not get much sun penetration indoors, but if you have regular windows it's worth trying.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
