Top Five Cheap Solar Battery Chargers

Inexpensive Solar Battery Chargers

Everyday it becomes more and more apparent that something needs to be done to help protect our environment.  The greenhouse gases produced by conventional electricity generation contribute to global warming and may one day make our planet uninhabitable.  Luckily you can help.

Buying a solar battery charger is not going to save the Earth by itself by any means, but it will help to take one less energy-sucking electronic off the grid.  Plus there's a convenience factor.  A solar battery charger will allow you to charge your devices anywhere, even if there's no outlet available!  So if you're camping in the backwoods and your iPod dies you won't have to go without it.  Just charge it while you're out hiking one day and you can return to your favorite tunes.

Top Five Solar Battery Chargers

Here are my choices for the top five solar battery chargers based on their price and features.

1. The Sunforce 5 Watt Solar Battery Trickle Charger

Never worry about being stranded by a dead car battery again. This charger by Sunforce will charge most vehicle batteries, including automobiles, boats, and ATVs.

2. Sunforce 60 Watt Panels

These panels are definitely not portable enough to carry in a backpack, but when combined with an RV or even just outside your home they will provide 60 watts of clean, renewable power.



3. iceTECH Solar i-101

The iceTECH Solar i-101 can provide nearly a half hour of cell phone usage after just an hour in the sun. Plus it comes with adapters for a variety of cellphone models and mp3 players.


4.  Solio H-1000 Hybrid Charger

The Solio H-1000 is similar to the iceTECH i-101 in that it is intended to be used with portable electronics.  Though it may not charge devices as rapidly, it makes up for it with the built in battery.  This enables the charger to store energy during the day and provide an emergency charge at night.

5. Lenmar PPUS20 PowerPort

The Lenmar is another cheap solar charger with an integrated battery. It, however, does not charge quite as rapidly as the above products, but is still quite effective.




Other Uses For Solar Energy

Remember, solar power is not restricted to merely charging batteries.  Though this clean, renewable energy we can also heat our homes and pools with solar heaters and light up our backyards with solar patio lights.

my brother sent out these chsmrtias cards . the front was him and his wife wearing matching v-necks each holding their babies also wearing .. matching v-necks . phot shopped across the bottom was a tag that said *LagOnnis (our last name) like he is trying to brand our family name and have exclusive credit for the family name . On the back of the card . He has four paragraphs talking about how many vacations he went on this year, all of these amazing job offers pouring in and states He likes where he is working right now very much but still enjoys the amazing job offers that are pouring in. He says despite the economic downturn he moved into a much bigger and better house in a more family frienddly neigborhood . We live in an area where every house cost about on million and up . it's not hard to find a family friendly neighborhood here. When facebook isn't enough he created a mind blowing blog page so you can find exclusive details all about him and his family at their very own website. He also says how his two kids aged 11 months and two years old have a personal chef. Just upscaling everything Like honestly I hope those two infants have a personal chef they would die if nobody cooked for them. They are expecting another child and they said We are expecting a new child Next year our family is going to be bigger and better! And at the bottom they signed they're LagOnnis And didn't say they're names or anything . Just the corporate brand idea they're projecting out. Is this to much? I feel in the economy we are in right now saying how many vacations they have been on, the bigger and better house they moved into while other people in my family are facing forclosures or are struggling month to month, I feel it is just very unsensitive and rude. And, I am not jealous either. I have things I can brag about but I don't believe in this bahavior so I don't do it. What do you think? Also, my other brother installed solar panels on his roof, and this chsmrtias card brother took all the credit saying he installed all the solar panels and never mentioned any help from my other brother . And I get it, my other brother didn't help seeking any praise or approval but clearly this Christmas card brother is seeking praise and approval so it is annoying to me .. And . Matching grey V-Necks? Come on. Lifes not all rainbows and butterflies stop faking it.Ok so I was pretty irriated when i wrote this. It's not a million dollar and up area it's more like $900,000 and up but all the money aside . Just the way he is being so formal with his family and talking about how great he is IN THIRD PERSON point of view . So you think it's it's to much? You think I would get away with it? lolI agree with all of these responses .. The one person that said there is a lot more going on then what they tal about Agreed. It seems picture perfect on the outside but deep down inside of that family structure there is clearly insecurity. I agree everyone has one of those in the family And yes Matching V-Necks. What the hell.I have to admit .. I sent out my own Christmas card this year . After getting this years chsmrtias card and seeing that it is bigger than last years I decide to send out a card that looks similar to theirs but I am mocking the **** out of them. On the front I am holding my dog, I am looking really good but I am making a funny face and under my picture (I am awearing a grey V-Neck) I wrote See reverse for exclusive details all about me!!!!!! and I on the back I ran all over them I hope next years card either 1) Doesn't come at all or 2) Is drastically tuned down. The back clowns them pretty bad. I sent it to everybody The opening sentence to my Christmas Card is Hello Everybody, I know you all have been waiting for this years status report and I thank you all for being patient. I'mdoing extraordinary. Last year, (despite the ecomic downturn) I went on so many vacations. And when I say so many, it's relly an understatement. lol.
