Solar Powered Battery Chargers

Solar Powered Battery Chargers

Last winter we had a blizzard, something rare in Missouri, and we lost power. I could do without the lights, because it was sunny outside. I could do without the TV, because I had lots to read. What I could not do without was my cell phone since I was using it to contact the outside world. Checking emails and FaceBook messages all day uses up the charge. So when I lost all the charge, I panicked.

I knew that a solar powered battery charger sounded like a good idea, but I never thought I would actually use one. I sure could have used it when we had no power for days. Since then I have vowed not to let that happen again. Besides, it would be great on camping trips or other places where there are now electric outlets.

Thankfully Amazon has a ton to choose from, with varied costs as well. Maybe it is time for you to start thinking about a Solar Powered Battery Charger for your home.

I don’t plan on taking it under water or even on a mountain, so I think I will be ok with this charger. I like the fact that it charges so fast. It says about 3.5 times faster than comparable solar chargers. When I need it, I want it fast.

Smaller solar charger, but still a good product. This one comes with a 3 year warranty. I haven’t seen that in the other products.

Small enough to carry around with you and not feel like you are carrying the world. But it is large enough to power up your cell phone if it has been exposed to the sun for several hours.

Just be sure to check all the details out before you buy. This one is a bit slower than the others that we have looked at.
