High-Capacity Solar Charger Juices Up Your Portables

Here at EarthTechling, we love us some solar chargers, and the folks at Chinavasion seem determined to feed our green gadget-charging frenzy. Take the High Capacity Solar Charger and Battery (which comes to us via Syfy’s Dvice).

When you purchase a universal charger, the idea is that you really will use this device to power all your portable electronics. Does this one have enough juice to make that a realistic goal for those of us with laptops, MP3 players, cameras, cell phones, GPS tools, portable DVD players, etc., etc.? The answer is yes, thanks to its 20,000 mAh battery and large flexible solar panel surface area (about equivalent, based on pictures, to the size of a laptop). Just leave it to charge in a sunny window or lay it beside you on the picnic table while you work or play outside.

At $128.00-$148.00, Chinavasion’s High-Capacity may have a little higher price tag than some of its less-powerful competitors, but the joy to be gained by actually being able to use this charger for all of your portables on a daily basis will likely cut down on the pain in short order. The High Capacity Solar Charger and Battery comes equipped with 29 tips to ensure universal charging satisfaction and is accompanied by a free carrying bag.
