Portable solar products are handy & save energy too!
At Livin’ Green we are committed to increasing the awareness of green energy. With ever rising fossil energy prices we notice a lively interest in the use of green energy, especially in solar energy. The amount of portable solar products that are offered on the internet and otherwise, is so enormous, that people hardly know where to start and what portable solar products to chose. Therefore we have selected various portable solar products for you, based on our experience and knowledge in the area of renewable energy. Rather than providing you with many different options in each category, we have decided to select only those products that we believe in, and that seem to be the best in their particular category.
One of the handy portable solar products: the Solar backpack
Nothing is a greater nuisance than traveling and being unable to communicate because the batteries in your mobile phone are flat..! A possibility is to use portable solar products like a solar chargers for your cell phone. Another possibility is to get a backpack that automatically charges whenever you are traveling. It charges when you walk, when you relax on a terrace, whatever… Also, and that is a great advantage of a solar back pack, it can charge various different cellphone devices.
Out of all the solar products we have chosen one, the Blue Solar backpack & cellphone charger, which is -unlike many others- not heavy. Otherwise, the disadvantages would outweigh its advantages. Solar Everything is a solid producer, by the way. It has very good reviews, and we can wholeheartedly recommend it.
