This has to be one of my favorite products ever! I just think it is so cool! This is solar charger for your cell phone! HOW COOL!! (Can you tell I am super excited to share this one with all of you).
As some of you know I also do photography along with this blog. When I’m doing a landscape shoot I will have to walk quite a ways to get to where I want to go. I was in Yosemite a few years ago and we walked on a trail for 6 hours before we got to the waterfall we wanted to shoot – then it was another 6 hours back to the camp. I wish I would have had this solar charger then.
One of the Solar panels flips open up and you will find this zipper area where you can plug in your phone – you can actually charge 2 devices at once with this!
This is what it looks like when it is all collapsed.
As you can see it is super thin! Some of you might wonder why this would be so important to a photographer (or any other extreme hiker for that matter) when we walk around with a big back pack anyways. Well Below is a picture of the gear I took on my 12 hour hike to and from a waterfall I wanted to photograph.
As you can see I was carrying A LOT of gear that day! my backpack was so full I had to bunch my sweater in a roll and attach it to the bottom of the bag itself. That is why I appreciate how thin it is! I still would have had trouble fitting it in the bag that day – but I would’ve found a way.

Next I have the Fast Battery Charger to show you!
I love that you can use re-chargable batteries now instead of trashing them once your done. This charger is great because it can charge 8 batteries at once!
The thing I loke most about this charger is the screen that lets you know once they are all charged – it is so much better then some of the other chargers out there!
Last, but not least, is the Portable backup battery/charger from Sunlabz.
This is also great for the hiker/photographer who is going on a hike and wants a backup way to charge your phone. I like this even on an everyday basis. As many of you know I coupon :) Hence the blog! Well there are a TON of couponing apps that I use and they often times drain my phone battery. There is nothing worse than waiting in a Target line and looking at your phone that is about to die knowing you need to use the Target Mobil Coupons! It is a couponers nightmare!
Well this little thing is great because I just plug my phone into the end after I have charged the backup and I’m good!
The backup plugs into a USB wall charger (it comes with it) and charges.
Once it is charged you can plug your phone into the end you see pictured to pull a charge from the back up!
