Why you need a Solar Powered phone charger

Do you have an iPhone? If you do, I guarantee you know how much they drain the battery life. I’m not very familiar with android phones so I really can’t give my opinion on that, but when it comes to iPhones, I have lots of experience in dealing with that terrible issue.

We use our phones these days for so much! I use mine for my alarm clock, reminders for appointments, I use apps to assist me at the gym, and I also use mapquest to get me from point a to point b. In other words, my phone is always running. I also play tons of games on my phone, so I get notifications constantly.

I was recently contacted by a company called 1byone. I have reviewed a product from them in the past, and I guess they missed me? The new rep asked me if I would like to review another product from them and I happily said yes. I really do love their products. She had so many wonderful items for me to choose from but when I saw the solar power charger, I knew that was the one.

I am planning a camping trip in a few weeks and since we will be without any electricity, I felt this would be amazing to have. Now obviously I have already tried the solar power charger out, and let me tell you… It is fantastic!

This amazing piece of equipment is very compact and will fit easily into a purse, back pack and even the glove box of a car. It folds out into a nice long solar panel.

Oh, I guess I should go into more detail about how solar power works. I mean not everyone knows, I’ll assume. I am not ashamed to say I didn’t know what it really did until later in my adult life. I never cared enough to be honest. I knew what solar was, and I just figured it was strong powerful rays from the sun. I guess I was kind of right, huh? So these solar panels work by being in direct sunlight. It uses the sunlight for energy and by that energy, not only do you have no electricity bill, but your phone can charge quickly!

The great thing about this solar charger is that so long as you have sunlight, you will never have to go searching for a wall socket to charge your phones. If you are at the office, you can charge your phone by a window, if you are rising in the car and all the adapters are being used, pull that solar panel out and charge your phone in the back window or even your lap! I actually tested this amazing little panel out in my home. I opened the blinds and laid the panel in the direct sunlight. My phones charges so fast!

As you can see when the charger is folded, it is very compact.

Specifications are as follows:

  • Solar cell efficiency: 22-23.5%
  • Solar Panel: 5.5v/24 watts
  • Solar Panel quantity: 4 pieces
  • Usb max current output: 3.3A in total, 2.4A at single port
  • Unfolded size: 800mm*260mm
  • Net weight: about 570g

It comes with two USB ports so you can charge two devices at the same time. This item has a built-in smart chip so you will enjoy the automatic start function.


The picture does it no justice, but it’s there charging it’s little heart out of my phone.

I will be posting more from my camping trip once we get back. But for now if you are interested in picking up one of these, you can get it on Amazon here. I have to say that shipping was extremely fast, and it was also free. This product is well worth the price too, only $52.99. The listing price is $99, so you will save $47, that’s 47%!!

So can you see why you need a solar power charger now? I think everyone should get these because they really do come in handy. This would make an amazing gift for anyone who owns a phone or tablet. Christmas will be here before you know it, so I will definitely be putting this on my list for a few people!

Let me know if you grab one, and how you like it.
