Solarenergy, though expensive, gives campers what they want – charge on themove. Be it cellphones, GPS and even torches, everything that can helpyou out during an emergency can be charged via solar energy. Industrialdesigners are trying out their skills in designing portable devicesthat come with built-in solar chargers so that you don’t have to carryadditional chargers in your camping gear.
TheSolaris lamp is one such gadget that consists of an onboard solar panelthat charges the system’s internal batteries, which then fuel a set ofLED lights providing illumination. The device can be hung from yourbackpack or can be held in your hand depending upon your requirements.
