POR­TA­BLE SO­LAR PAN­ELS

American Survival Guide - - GEAR GUIDE -

Whether you are on the move or shel­ter­ing in place, you will most likely need power. Here are three por­ta­ble so­lar sys­tems I be­lieve in— and rely on—to gen­er­ate the power I need, no mat­ter where I am.

•Bi­o­lite So­lar Panel 10+: Charge cell phones, tablets and other gear us­ing the 10-watt so­lar panel. You can even store power in its 3000mah bat­tery.

•Bush­nell Pow­er­sync So­lar­wrap Mini: Of all my units, this so­lar panel is the light­est and most por­ta­ble—but don’t let its size de­ceive you. Its sen­si­tive panel col­lects en­ergy even in low-light sit­u­a­tions and stores it in long-life lithium-ion bat­ter­ies.

•Sun­jack 14 Watt Por­ta­ble So­lar Charger: Small enough to fit in a back­pack, the Sun­jack uses a 14-watt panel that will not only charge your de­vices or run a light or two, it also stores en­ergy in its 3.0 Quick Charge bat­tery pack.

The Bi­o­lite So­lar Panel 10+ folds up and can be eas­ily car­ried in a back­pack.

The Bush­nell Pow­er­sync So­lar Wrap is one of the light­est por­ta­ble so­lar pan­els. It stores power in its in­ter­nal bat­ter­ies.

The Sun­jack por­ta­ble so­lar panel has four sep­a­rate pan­els that can be opened up for max­i­mum so­lar col­lec­tion.the au­thor is us­ing his Sun­jack so­lar panel to charge his Bush­nell Ru­bi­con head­lamp.
