I always feel a bit uncomfortable when someone recommends I leave my phone at home and travel into the woods in search of enlightenment and disconnection. It sounds great in theory but why would I abandon my pocket computer and enter a risky situation without my handheld safety net.
So I always bring portable batteries with me when I head off and I’m excited about this solar-powered charger, on sale right now for almost half off. The ZEROLEMON solar charger gives you a USB-C port, as well as two other USB outputs and a few other features that could come in handy when you’re alone with nature. A hook lets you hang the solar charger and a multifunction LED flashlight could help you scare away bears … or find your hot dog if you dropped it. And the yellow color will make the charger itself easy to find in the dark, too. On top of all that, it’s waterproof and shockproof, meaning a spill or a drop won’t hurt this source of power.
For $50, this great-to-have charger will save you many headaches and keep your devices charged when no other outlet will.
