Solar Charger for Electronic Devices
One thing that has been on my mind lately is how do I keep my electronic devices powered up when SHTF and the power grid goes down. Something that will work is a PC5 USB solar charger on Amazon made by Suntactics. The size of a CD case when opened, this well built device uses the sun to keep your phone/GPS working far from home. Am also looking into getting some Sanyo LSD AA batteries and a USB charger that plugs into the PC5 so I can keep my emergency weather radio working as well. These new LSD rechargeable batteries are great because they will hold their charge for many months and even years. Plus they can be recharged 1500 times.
Unlike some of the low cost solar chargers on the market, Suntactics made the PC5 to very high quality specs and uses a top of the line solar crystal. This unit will even charge at a reduced rate through a car window. Now we can still enjoy our iDevices when camping or ISHTF.
