Solar USB Chargers

There are countless different green products out there that can help us to reduce our power usage and carbon footprint and any of these will help us to look after the planet better and often to save us money. Some of these though are so practical and so useful, that even those with no interest in going green whatsoever can greatly benefit from them. For those who are interested in going green meanwhile they represent a great way to demonstrate to others just what a smart lifestyle choice this really is.

Enter the solar USB charger. These are solar panels with a USB port that can be used in order to charge anything that charges through a USB connector whether it’s a phone, a tablet, an MP3 player or a camera. OF course this is perfect for going green as it quite simply means that you will no longer need to keep charging your phone off of the mains. Instead you can charge it by plugging it into your solar charger and that will give you a roughly 80% charge.

There are limitations to this though. The first is the fact that for an iPhone or something this is just that an 80% charge. Of course you can top your phone up again though by letting the solar charge charge further, and it’s important to do this from time to time to avoid damaging your battery pack. Another limitation is that solar voltaic solar panels (which these are) will wear out over time and become less effective. The good news is that this does take a rather long time – you’ll get hundreds or thousands of charges from this thing first – and by that time it will have paid for itself in terms of the energy bill you save.

The positives far outweigh the negatives. First of all you’re going green in a very modern and high tech way that will turn heads. This is the sort of gadget that people will ask you about and when you tell them how practical it is they will likely jump on board – you’re helping others with going green too.

More to the point it’s just highly practical and one of the real times when going green pays off. When you’re out and about and you find that your phone is getting low or your MP3 player is running out you can now just plug it into your solar charger and use it as you would normally – you’ll never be caught short and you’ll never be off the grid. In this day and age being cut off can be highly inconvenient. People who go green always were a forward thinking bunch…
