Over the past few days, I’ve been looking into solar chargers for phones. Watching coverage of recent devastating storms and earthquakes, you can’t help but imagine what it would be like. There’s no doubt, you can never fully prepare for something like that, but doing what you can, within reason, makes sense. At Ready.gov, under “Get a Kit” you’ll find a list of things you should definitely consider having available for emergencies. A solar charger for your cell phone is on the list, and fortunately, there are some solar chargers for phones and other small devices that are relatively inexpensive. I’m getting ready to order the ReVIVE Series Solar ReStore External Battery Pack for $28 from Amazon. I’ll post my review after I’ve had a chance to test it.
Be sure to take a look at the Ready.gov Kit suggestions to see what else you can do to prepare for all types of emergency situations.
