What it is: Anker PowerPort Solar Lite
For a lot of people, nothing’s better than the great outdoors. There’s hiking, camping, swimming, clear skies and fresh air – but nowhere to plug in and charge your phone. Well, now all you need is the sun with the Anker PowerPort Solar Lite!
The Solar Lite pulls in power from the sun and sends it directly to your phone’s battery. The device is made of foldable fabric for easy storage, and you simply unfold it and attach to your backpack, your tent or even a tree branch using the elastic loops on the top and corners. The Solar Lite is lightweight, about 12 ounces and very durable, given that it’s made out of high-wear polyester canvas over industrial-strength PET plastic solar panels. The unit charges up to 2.1 amps under direct sunlight and can even provide enough power to charge two devices simultaneously.
You can also count on safety when using the Solar Lite. Short circuit and surge protection will keep both you and your electronics safe!
How much it costs: $49.99
The Solar Lite retails through the Anker site for $49.99. In addition to the Solar Lite, the site carries a large range of portable, USB and car chargers, amongst other products. The Solar Lite is also available at the same price point through Amazon, and is eligible for Amazon Prime shipping!
Who to buy it for: The outdoor enthusiast in your life
The Solar Lite is ideal for campers and hikers, but can be useful for anyone who spends a lot of time away from outlets. Take it anywhere from the beach to outdoor sports matches – as long as there’s sunlight, you’ll never find yourself with a dead smartphone!
