Nice products! Maybe I should move to a more sunny country 🙂
Excellent post. I did not know that we can charge our laptops with solar chargers. I have been used to for long driving and i remember that my laptop battery gets finished and my work got disturbed. Is they available on Amazon ? I would love to buy one of them.
I design portable power systems, and can confirm that the Brunton & Voltaic products are outstanding. The Voltaic cases are fully self contained, providing solar panel with integrated solar power storage battery pack. The battery provides several output options to support almost any laptop.
The Brunton solar panels must be used in conjunction with a solar storage battery (like the Brunton Sustain or Impel). Note that the Brunton Solo 7.5 battery pack was replaced in the Brunton catalog back in 2010 by the Sustain. Same functionality though… store the solar panel’s power & provide the voltage, power, & connector your laptop needs.
The SolarGorilla is the only other product I have heard of, but I have not had the chance to evaluate it. Anything less than 10W solar, 50 Watt-Hour storage, with multiple output voltages, is not going to be useful for portable laptop use.
Hope this helps! Thanks for posting this article.
Excellent products. I would like to buy it one of them as i have to travel a lot and it will help me to charge the battery. 🙂
My friend is having Brunton Solaris 62 and its working amazing 🙂
I use the 26w solar panels and the Brunton Impel to bicycle tour and work from the road. Love it. Would recommend upgrading to the 52w solar panel…more expensive but will charge the battery more quickly.
Great products i like it thanks for sharing..
