Staying Green On The Go ~ Solar Powered Battery Charger For Your Cell Phone

My family is always on the go.  When we get a break from supporting our children on the sports field, we often escape to nature, to provide a respite from our hectic daily routines.

Whether our excursion is for a relaxing day at the lake, a fishing or camping trip, or a day of hiking in the forest with our Lab, we are always glad we took the time to refresh together and recharge.

While our outdoor activities are certainly centered around all things un-technical, we do need to stay connected, which is often a challenge.

It seems, no matter our best intentions to to ensure our cell phones and cameras are fully charged at the onset of our adventure, which requires no small amount of coordination en route to our activity, at the most crucial moment, we are doomed by the ominous red battery warning light!  Curse you low battery warning light!

Invariably, just as my daughter is making a wicked lacrosse goal at a huge tournament, the playing field a ridiculous distance from my car (and ability to recharge), it strikes.

Or, just as my son, who has been putting up the determined battle of his young life, lands his first trout, it strikes.

Not to mention the times when, caught up in the beauty around us and following our enthusiastic Lab on a trek, we find ourselves in need of some GPS assistance!

No matter the circumstances, my family wants to stay connected.  While we may pause from our techy distractions, when we are on the go, we want to be able to rely upon our devices to be charged and functional.

As one who is always striving to green up our family  in all aspects, I was very intrigued by a product I recently heard about from Goal Zero, that offers solar powered battery chargers for your cell phone and other electronic devices!

They offer a Guide 10 Adventure Kit, a solar powered charging device for cell phone, iPods, cameras and GPS units.  Capable of functioning as both a power pack and battery charger, the unit is lightweight and perfectly portable; small enough to fit in our pocket!

That's green power on the go!  The Guide 10 Adventure Kit may well be the solution to my family's need to stay connected.

I am participating in a blog campaign from Bucks2Blog for a portable solar panel company and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are both honest and of my own experience.  Lake & Kayak Images

This is neat. While I do have a charger at work, in the car, and at home, a solar one sounds cool!
