Portable Power

Do you need to power your laptop on the move with solar power?  Have you ever found yourself thinking why aren't you using a solar panel to power your laptop?  What you need is the Gorilla Solar Laptop Charger. This portable charger is ideal for use in all kinds of environments, whether you are hiking, camping, fishing, visiting remote environments or just simply want free electricity. The Solar Gorilla Laptop Charger is by miles the best choice for charging all kinds of electronics gadgets. Keep in mind that the laptop power consumption should be below 40 watts. Featuring a USB socket, you can charge your cellphone, ipod, camera, smartphone and 5 volt devices too. 


Main Features:

  •  - dimensions: 264 x 200 x 19mm
  •  - weight: 820g
  •  - shock proof rubberised outer case
  •  fold up design for easy handy portable storage
  •  water resistant surfaces
  •  clip to hold solar panel in place on tents, cars on anywhere it'll go
  •   20V power outlet hosting a socket for standard USB devices
  •   LED charging indicator

Whats in the box

It comes with 8 different laptop power connectors, a wide variety of phone charger plugs and different types of USB plugs. Don't worry if you're an Apple user, this also supports the Macbook, Macbook Pro and Macbook Air but make sure you have the Apple MagSafe airline adaptor. I recommend it as a very reliable laptop solar battery charger, working in very low light even in the northern hemisphere, even in severe weather conditions. Because it generates electricity with photovoltaic cells, they only require UV light to start pumping out free energy. Amazon sells it for the most competitive price, providing all the accessories in one kit. 


Watch it in action

So there you have it. The most effective way of powering your laptop using solar panels. No more complicated costly over engineered solution. It good for the environment, your convenience and your pocket!

To be on the safe side, I would say anything higher than a 15 inch laptop.

We are highly interested in your solar power computer laptops. Please, send the concessional price for a large quantity. We want you to send a sample and the price.

Why not build the solar cells into the laptop or even design a solar cell cover to fit any laptop? Need to charge your laptop? Just put it in the sun. Great idea!

I love this idea - photocells in your laptop. This actually has already happened for laptops going to Rwanda. http://www.buildingtalk.com/news/sla/sla112.html Wonder when it will be commonplace for us.

Solar is the way to go. We have a VW camper and solar keeps us off the grid.

Skeptical somewhat, the video didn't show the battery indicator on the laptop to show how much of a charge the laptop was getting. Couldnt see what the light indicators were for the most part. Does the solar panel take a charge and send it to the laptop at the same time, or do you have to do one at a time, let the solar panel take the charge and then the consumer hits a switch to activate powering the laptop from the solar panel?
