This backup battery charges your iPhone and Android using nothing but the sun

Take advantage of the sun’s power when you’re out on the trails by using a solar backup battery pack that charges multiple devices at the same time.

Take advantage of the sun’s power by utilizing a solar battery pack that charges multiple devices at the same time.


What happens when your backup battery charger runs out of juice? For most people, a dead smartphone is usually the result. But what if you could harness the power of the sun to bring your devices back from the dead?

That’s where the Mengo S-Power 5300Mah Solar Powered Battery Charger comes into play.

This back-up battery pack includes an LED emergency light, a carabiner so you can carry it easily and is water and shock resistant. Keep in mind, the device allows for slight water contact, such as splashing and rain. It rocks dual USB ports so you can charge two devices at the same time like your iPhone, iPod, iPad, Samsung, LG, HTC or Nexus phone.

You can recharge this device quickly by using the USB cable or expose it to direct sunlight if you don’t have access to a power source. It should be noted that it takes a long time to charge this battery using only the sun — a full day charge will only provide the battery with about 1/8 of its total capacity. However, you can just leave it in direct sunlight all the time so it’s ready to go when you need it.

The Mengo S-Power 5300Mah Solar Powered Battery Charger is currently on sale for $27.89 with free shipping on orders more than $35. That’s 44% off list price!
