Back in January -when we saw a slew of solar powered and battery chargers (often with AC options)- for personal electronics-for outdoors bound types-all we could think about was how the REAL market for these gadgets-was in our hometown of densely urban NYC- and the populated tri-state area in general....particularly those zip codes that lost electrical power for days...or weeks that past October.
Still, none of these folks had/have any of the relatively inexpensive and reliable, PV solar power -photovoltaic cells- portable energy sources- shown here...which would go a long way to at least firing up their smartphones...the one thing that most individuals suffered- via withdrawals from-besides missing an episode (or two) of "Homeland"and hot water showers.
POWERTRAVELLER makes several sizes of rugged tough portable solar panel-powered chargers that can power-up one to several devices simultaneously via AC, Micro USB or 5V to 30V DC... with international chargers available too.
Big plus though-the solar panel options ---that can attach to the chargers -easily...with chargers -holding full-75^% charge for months (depending on model)...and that all gadgets are encased in tough rubber or aluminum casing.
