Goal Zero’s latest portable recharger solution may be lightweight and affordable but is definitely big…
As more of us are looking to stay connected while traveling or out on the trail, much of our essential and even non-essential gear has traded in those disposable batteries for more earth friendly rechargeable ones. The latest portable solar chargers look to ensure you will never be without your beloved gadgets, whatever your adventure. Though most of these work best as a battery backup, you will appreciate the ability to recharge the packs via the sun (no matter how long it takes) if you find yourself in the middle of nowhere.
During Graduate School at Columbia University, students Anna Stork and Andrea Shresta set out to design a light that could make a difference to disaster relief efforts around the globe. Troubled with the unsafe conditions in tent cities brought about by the use of kerosene lamps, the two students came up with the idea for an inflatable solar light that would be both easy to transport, as well as distribute to masses of people.
