    I purchased one of these earlier in the year to go with my BOB. I tinkered with it a little but never really tested its capabilities until a recent business trip. This charger features a small solar panel on the front to recharge the built in battery pack from sunlight. The case is made from a...

    The question is probably overly simple. I am electrically challenged. I am not looking to build anything. What I am looking for is a product that is solar powered that I can plug in the battery chargers for my cordless tools. Does something like this even exist? Not having much luck with Google...

    Any reviews or recommendations on a backpacking solar charger? I have heard mixed reviews on ALL of them. I once had a crank radio that could "charge" through USB, but nothing ever really retained a charge. To make a phone call I would have to crank the phone to life then pass the charger...

    I have found a few battery chargers but none to satisfy completely. I am looking for a solar battery charger that has charge indicator for battery charge/strength. I would like to be able to charge AA, AAA, D, and C. An added bonus would be rechargeable 9V and CR123's. If there is a thread...

    One of the things I have done thru my preps is standardizing the type of batteries I use. Rather than have some flashlights that use C-cell, others that use D-cells, and other gear that uses AA….you can see my point. And it seems that whenever you need a battery….you have everything else BUT the...
