Whether you spend a lot of time on the trail, the road, or tend to occupy wide open spaces where electricity is scant, a portable solar charger is a handy accessory to keep around.
BigBlue’s 28-Watt Solar Charger is a waterproof, foldable option that allows you to simultaneously charge three devices via USB. The device’s four 7-watt panels can put out a maximum of 5 volts/3.4 amps, which breaks down to 17 watts for total potential output (given perfect conditions).
Note that despite the 28-watt mention in the name, you’ll never get out of a solar panel what the sun puts in. Output will always vary when working with solar panels (of any size), and because converting energy from solar is an imperfect process, there’s always some casualty of power in doing so. That said, if you leave this thing in even moderate sunlight for the duration of a day, especially if you amplify that from, say, beneath a windshield on the dashboard of your car, RV, or boat, you’ll do more than alright in powering small devices. Pro tip: Don’t power your devices, but a charging bank, like Lifeproof’s Lifeactív ($74.99, 25% off for Cyber Monday). It’ll help you manage your charging when and where it matters.
