Solar-powered gadgets for camping

How can solar power benefit campers?

Camping is a great way to spend quality time with friends and family and enjoy the beauty of nature. After all, who wouldn’t want to go hiking for hours without worrying about running out of battery juice on their gadgets? With solar energy, you don’t have to worry anymore as solar panels are now capable of generating enough electricity for your gadgets even when there’s no sun. Here are some solar-powered gadgets that should come in handy if you plan to go camping:

A small solar panel (5 volts):

A small solar panel provides up to 5 volts which is sufficient enough to charge your phone and other gadgets. Just plug in your device, unfold the solar panel to expose the solar cells, position it towards the sun for a couple of hours and you’re good to go.

Solar flashlights

It’s certainly not advisable to light up an indoor campsite using candles because they are hazardous when exposed to fire or other combustible materials. With solar flashlights, you don’t have to worry about that anymore as solar panels are incorporated into these flashlights in order to capture solar energy which is then stored into a rechargeable solar-powered battery.

Solar lamp

Here’s another solar gadget that you can use to light up your campsite at night. To make it solar-powered, they’ve installed solar cells on either side of this flashlight. The solar power is stored in a rechargeable solar-powered battery which provides bright LED lighting as long as the solar cells are exposed to sunlight for a couple of hours each day.

If you plan to go hiking or camping during cloudy days, you’ll have no problem bringing this solar lamp with you because it also includes a super capacitor inside which allows this lamp to continue working even if there’s no sunlight for an extended period of time. This lamp is ideal for emergency purposes since it has a solar-powered battery that can provide light for up to 10 hours when charged.

The LED lighting can last up to 3 hours and it’s great for hiking, camping, or other outdoor activities like hunting, fishing and biking.

Solar laptop charger

Just like the other solar flashlights mentioned above, it captures solar energy during the day and stores it into the batteries where it can then release bright LED lighting for up to 3 hours when charged properly.

These solar flashlights measure no bigger than a typical credit card which makes them super lightweight and easy to take along anywhere you go without worrying too much about their weight or bulkiness.

Solar flashlights that charge through solar panels on one side and solar batteries on the other can be difficult to attach onto walls since they don’t stick very well and instead only lean against smooth surfaces like glass doors and windows.

Solar sticky tabs
