freeloader pro The FreeLoader Pro Solar Charger

You may not have solar photovoltaic panels on your rooftop, but you can enjoy the benefits of solar power in several other ways. One of them is the FreeLoader Pro, a solar charger that power most electrical devices, from the comfort of your home or during a expedition in the jungles of Africa.

It uses high power solar panels or USB (cable supplied) to charge its internal Li-ion battery. A full charge takes between seven and nine hours in sunny conditions. Once fully charged, Freeloader Pro is capable of delivering enough power to give a mobile phone 70 hours of standby time, 5,000 page turns on an eBook or a 100% full charge for a digital camera battery.

At 9.5V, the Freeloader Pro’s multi-voltage switch is capable of charging power-hungry, high-voltage devices such as MP4 players, portable DVD players and SLR camera batteries. It features a metallic push button “Power Halo” that indicates how much power is in the Freeloader Pro’s battery.

Freeloader Pro also features the CamCaddy. The CamCaddy is a specially designed adapter that accepts virtually every type of camera battery whether a simple compact digital camera, professional SLR or a video camera battery. CamCaddy suits all sizes of battery (3.2v to 7.9v) using its variable slider bar and adjustable contact pins.

  1. When I initially looked at the photo I thought this was a pretty big charger, but then I read the dimensions further down the article and realized that it really is quite compact and light as well. The price is relatively fair at approx $60.00 and I read the reviews on Amazon which were mostly positive. I think it is worth noting that this charger needs to be placed in direct sunlight, as opposed to behind a UV protected window as it will not sufficiently charge the device. I like the option of either solar or USB, because you are not always going to have the benefit of a days worth of sun every time you go out.
