Today I am posting a brief review plus, as always, am giving you an opportunity to win the SunJack Portable Solar Charger and a the companion Camplight LED Bulb for free. More about the giveaway in a moment because first I want to tell you about the SunJack itself and how it works.
With our reliance on portable electronics, a huge concern is what will we do when the power is out and our batteries are dead?
This is true not only for our phones which provide a vital link to the outside world, but for our tablets, and electronic readers, too. Think about it. We all have hundreds if not thousands of documents that will help us muddle through if the grid goes down. Barring printing them out and setting up a massive library system, we will be stuck unless we have some way to power up our gizmos.
The SUNJACK 20W PORTABLE SOLAR CHARGER consists of a fold-up set of solar charging panels nicely packaged in a compact case that has a zippered mesh pocket for holding the included battery, charging cable, and two USB ports. Closed up, it measures about 9” by 6.5” which is smaller than my iPad. It comes with an external battery pack that once charged, can be carried in a pocket or backpack to provide portable power on the go. Or, if you like, you can connect your devices directly to the panels themselves.
