How many times have you been out for the day or gone away for a long weekend or holiday, your phone or laptop is running out of battery, and there’s nowhere to plug it in and recharge it?
It happens far too often for our liking. That is why we always carry a solar battery charger with us. Then we can feel confident our phone, tablet or laptop will not pack up on us at a crucial moment because it’s run out of battery power.
What is a Solar Battery Charger?
A solar charger is a device which uses sunlight – of which we have plenty in Spain even in winter – to generate electricity. This electricity can then be used to charge up mobile phones, laptops, tablets, reading lights, and other electrical devices.
The electricity is stored in a battery pack so devices can be charged at any time. The power is stored until you need it.
Benefits of Solar Powered Battery Chargers
There are several types of solar chargers and many of them are portable, which makes them ideal for when you are working away or on holiday. Many of them are small devices to charge phones, tablets, laptops, cameras and smart watches, for example, and these can be carried around with you.
There are also public solar charging stations, such as solar charging benches, in various countries that can be used by the public.
The biggest advantages are that these devices use green, free energy – the sun – to create electricity to charge up mobile electronic devices. They are also fairly affordable. And you can use them on the beach; on a camping holiday; at festivals; while out walking, hiking or cycling; or anywhere outdoors where you need to charge up your phone or other electronic device.
Best Solar Chargers
You can get solar chargers with or without batteries, so some are effective for charging your devices when on a camping trip or hiking holiday, for example. The chargers with batteries are more practical for everyday use because they are more lightweight.
For value for money, we like the Ryno Tuff Portable Solar Charger, which has hooks for hanging on to your backpack, tent or vehicles. It can charge multiple devices at once.
For wireless charging, we are impressed by the DJRoll 36,000mAh Power Bank which can charge four devices at the same time and comes with a LED flashlight.
If you’re looking for something to charge up your phones, we like the BioLite solar panel with integrated power pack. It has an integrated rechargable battery so you can charge up your devices even when the sun goes down.
The Anker PowerCore Solar 20000 mAh is super fast, has a built-in flashlight and can power your phone for several days on end.
