Solar can do so much more than just power your home. There are all sorts of gadgets out there that every solar fanatic should have in their arsenal. Whether you’re hanging out by the pool, on a camping trip in the mountains, or just love collecting cutting-edge stuff, these solar innovations will help you take a step into a green — and really cool — future:
HeLi-On Charger - Portable solar chargers are nothing new, but this one is refreshingly different. With a rollout solar panel, this charger is compact and lightweight. It gives you the option of charging your device directly, or you can charge the HeLi-On’s internal battery and charge your device at a later time. You can pre-order yours from the company’s Kickstarter page.
Skylock - This is a new one for even us. We never knew we needed a solar-powered bike lock until now. The Skylock connects with your smartphone and remotely unlocks itself. It uses built-in solar panels so you don’t have worry about getting stuck somewhere if the batteries run out. Its Bluetooth capability allows for automatic unlocking when you’re near. Purchase yours here.
Sun Table - This gadget may be a bit extravagant (with a price tag to match) but we still think it’s cool. The Sun Table allows you charge your laptop outside so you never have to miss the beautiful weather while working. The tabletop even tilts to catch the most sun possible. A built-in inverter allows you charge or power any device you wish to keep outdoors with you. Learn more.
