Chargers are solar panels of a suitable size that come with all accessories (plugs, cables, adapter) ready to charge a certain type of battery (car, notebook...) and/or directly power a small application, such as a mobile phone or mp3 player. Usually they don't have nor need a charge controller or monitor.

On this page you will find various types of solar chargers as well as other functional and fun applications (solar gadgets), such as solar powered radios, solar driveway monitors, solar fans, watches, scales and even a complete solar powered weather station.

 

 

If you know of new and exciting solar chargers or gadgets, please send us a link or at least a description, and we will include it in the solar shop & products review.

What's the point of mobile electronics if you can't take them anywhere? Take this portable power source with you to revive your electronic devices!

Its design harnesses the sun's rays to operate or charge mobile phones, GPS units, FRS radios, portable MP3/disc players, handheld games and other small electronics. Simply plug your equipment into the SolarPort unit and expose it to direct sunlight.

Polycrystalline solar panel construction produces 4.4 Watts (265mA @ 12V position and 530mA @ 6V position).

Includes a 20-inch power cord with adapters to match a wide variety of portable electronic devices; also includes a 12V auto socket adapter.


Weight: 19 ounces..

 

This portable solar power source can charge batteries at 6V or 12V.

Hint (valid for all chargers that do not automatically stop charging when batteries are full):

Look at the label on your battery to see how many mAh (charge storing capability) they have to estimate the required charging time. For example, a 1000mAh battery requieres charging with 200mA for 5 hours to be fully charged.

Consider that at half the full sun intensity charging will occur at half the speed!

However, you don't need to fully charge the battery always - partial charging is ok with most battery packs (although not preferable in the long run).

The pocket-size, folding Solar e-Power charges most models of Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola or Samsung cellphones. Power cord adaptor included. It can also charge 4 AA or AAA batteries in the attached battery holder.

Phone charging can be solar direct, or energy stored in the batteries. The folding design keeps it small and protects the cells during transport. Delivers 250 mA @ 6.0V. 4.5" x 2.6" x 1.3". China.

 

A compact charger that can either directly use the energy from the sun shining on the panels or the energy stored in batteries.

Therefore it can work for a while without sun - very useful for less sunny areas, seasons.

Compact design.

Good value for the price.

The iSun is the most complete solar charger for small electronics you’ll find anywhere.

This 2.2 watt folding unit can be switched for 6 or 12V output, comes with two power cables, and seven different DC plugs that cover more than 90% of all cell phones, discmans, MP3 players, or GPS units.

Measures 7.25” x 4.25” (8.25” unfolded) x 1.25”. Weighs 11 oz. Delivers 145mA @ 15.2v, or 290mA @ 7.6v. China.

It will charge up to 10 rechargeable AA or AAA size batteries. ON and FULL lites indicate charging activity. You can recharge your cellphone or other device with energy stored in the batteries.

 

You can buy the charger (solar panel) only or both components for $99.

Note: In order to charge e.g. a 12V battery you need a charger that actually supplies MORE than 12V.

Some manufacturers of 12V chargers call their output voltage 12V even though it actually varies between 12 and e.g. 15V depending on the charging level of the battery.

Don´t let yourself be confused. In practice you may safely assume that a "12V" charger is suitable for charging 12V batteries and so is a charger that supplies e.g. 15.2V.

The ability to choose the output voltage makes this charger a very good deal.

Want to install a motion solar sensor floodlight without having to hire an electrician to wire it?

This maintenance-free security light uses solar energy to power the long lasting, bright, energy-efficient halogen bulb. And don't worry about cloudy skies, because the light works for approximately 2 weeks without ANY sunlight.

A built-in motion and heat sensor turns the light on for people. You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensor to pick up a full 90° horizontally, at a distance of up to 30 feet. Set the darkness level to keep the light from coming on too early in the evening or too late at night.

A 14-foot cable between the solar panel and the light lets you place the security light where you need it, while allowing the solar panel to be installed facing the sun.

 

 

Adds security and functionality to your property and life. A great solar application for relatively little money!

If a car drives onto your property, wouldn't you feel safer if you were alerted right away?

With the discreet, wireless Driveway Monitor™, whenever a vehicle crosses its invisible beam, a radio signal triggers the system's receiver inside your home up to 1,000 feet away — alerting you with a distinctive chime and a flashing red light.

And with the Lamp Controller activated, the signal will also turn on a lamp inside your home — to welcome guests, deter unwanted visitors or ensure you never come home to a dark house.

Driveway Monitor is activated only by the movement of metal objects — so you won't have to hassle false alarms from the motion of people, animals, leaves or shadows.

Simply mount the wireless monitor on its short ground stake; or use the bracket to mount it on a fence, wall or tree.

 

 

Another fancy solar gadget to enhance security for your property.

Detects only moving metals - so no problems with your pets or visiting rabbits!

Never be surprised by unexpected visitors again. The Solar Wireless Driveway Monitor surveys your driveway and alerts you in your home or office when vehicles arrive by chiming and flashing.

Since it uses a patented magnetic system, the Solar Wireless Driveway Monitor can be sure to detect only vehicles.

This wireless driveway monitor is solar powered, so it doesn't depend on electricity or batteries for operation. With a range of up to 1000 feet between the vehicle sensor and the indoor receiver, it's perfect for long driveways.

Installation is simple — mount the vehicle sensor next to your driveway and plug the receiver into any electrical outlet in your home.


 

Detects only metallic objects to prevent false alarms which may be triggered by your or the neighbour's pet. It can't be easier to install.

Makes a good gift for anybody with a (metallic) car...

See the science and beauty of the power of the sun come together in this exquisite hand-blown, hand-crafted glass radiometer.


The highly sensitive vanes carefully balanced inside the radiometers take on energy when struck by the molecules heated by sunlight.


The vanes' shiny sides reflect the heat, which is absorbed by the dark sides. Energy is released as the heated molecules kick away at great speeds, causing the vanes to revolve within the vacuum.

 

A beatiful and impressive way to demonstrate the power of the sun without electricity!

Solar light is transformed into heat. Hot molecules move fast clearly pushing a wheel. Something to think about, something to kick of scientific interest in a teenager... or adult!

No need for batteries or charge controllers, you only need 90 to 120 watts of rated solar power.

During cloudy weather, internal thermal sotrage keeps food cold for up to 7 days. Works optimally in locations with at least 4 sun-hours per day. For areas with less than 4 sun-hours a day, use one of the Solus Battery powered models.

Uses a variable speed, 12 or 24V compressor and peak power tracking.

This new and innovative system means much lower maintenance and extremely efficient operation as well as nearly silent operation.

Status lights indicate thermal reserve.

 

 

Cooling is typically most needed when the sun shines.

This "gadget" does exactly that.

Weight Increments: 4 to 200 pounds (lb) in 1/2 pound increments; 200-330 pounds in 1.0 pound increments.

1-Inch High Easy-to-read LCD screen
Toe-Tap Reset

 

Nessinette's (US) review at Amazon:

"...it's amazing! Open the box, leave the scale in a light room (window or no window, it doesnt matter) for a couple of hours, and step on it!
If you dont move, you get the result between 1 and 2 sec later.
And this scale is exact even for low weights such as our baby-son's 20 pounds."

This scale has a large enough solar cell to function well - even at low light. For a solar scale, it is essential to have larger solar cells than the display.

This one is great...

Moving hot, stagnant air out of your attic, greenhouse, or barn is the least energy intensive way to keep your space cool.

Using solar power to do the work makes even more sense. The brighter the sun shines, the faster the fan runs.

This Solar Fan Kit gives you everything you need. It includes a high-efficiency DC fan, matched PV modules, mounting brackets, wiring, a thermoswitch to prevent running in cold weather, and instructions.

The 12" Fan Kit has a 13-watt PV module and 600-800 CFM in full sun.

 

 

This solar panel/fan combination is ideal for rooms which need cooling when the sun shines.

The fan only runs above a certain temperature so the room will not cool too much.

Ideal for sunny rooms or in your greenhouse.
