EDITOR’S NOTE: We launched our new online specialty products store to offer portable solar products from Goal Zero® to sunshine enthusiasts everywhere. This blog series details our customers’ and employees’ experiences with the products to shed some light on how solar power works on-the-go.
- What do you think about portable solar?
It’s pretty powerful and great for outdoors to power up cell phones, lamps, and laptops.
- How did you use your portable solar device?
I’ve used it to power a few outdoor lamps, cell phones, and a laptop over a two day weekend and still have over 60% power remaining.
- What were the greatest benefits you experienced using the device?
Not worrying about a dead cell phone or laptop, which everyone can agree is a nightmare!
- What surprised you about the product?
I tested it on my TV, Cable, and PS 3 (all at once) for 3 days and still had 60% of power remaining.
- Who would you recommend use it, and for what sort of activities?
Anyone that needs a constant supply of power for cell phones, laptops, and handheld games. In today’s life style, a cell phone is almost critical to life itself – there’s nothing worse than a dead cell phone. I recommend all walks of life use portable solar because we all need electrical power on a daily basis to carry on with our lives. Road trips, camping, fishing and pretty much any outdoor activities would benefit from having portable power.
