For many people, mobile devices have become part of everyday life. I must confess I’m part of this demographic yet I will not confess just how many devices our household has in total. At work, there are regularly not one but two mobile phones sitting right next to me in addition to the laptop (which I’m typing this on right now). A lovely white power strip (which I shut off every night) rests peacefully nearby providing me with all the juice I may need on any given day.
There are many instances though – hiking, boating, or camping come to mind first – where charging these devices is just not an option (gasp) due to the environment. Enter Sunjack’s 14 Watt Solar Charger + 8000mAh battery pack assembled right here in the USA (and backed by a one year limited warranty).
Now, anywhere you choose to go outside you have the ability to charge. No sun? Sunjack still has you covered with its internal battery pack, which after five hours of sun is fully charged.
Each battery pack can power up to four smartphones or 1 tablet (and I’ve got one of those too – yes, I know). Need to power a USB device such as a digital camera, gaming device or MP3 player stat? Sunjack’s solar charger has you covered there too with ‘direct powering of those devices’.

I’ve had the chance to play with a few different solar chargers and I definitely love this one. The battery lasts forever. It folds up and slips into a backpack really easily. I also really like the small LED light they sell, it works well.
