I have written 46 posts in the Sustainable Living category of this blog. However, I realised I have not done anything concrete to shift towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
Here is our new 21W Solar Charger that can charge a power bank. This power bank can in turn charge mobile devices that can be charged via USB port. Actually, since there are two USB ports, it can charge two power banks simultaneously.
Right now, we just connected a power bank to test whether the solar panel set-up is working. Fortunately it is working and our power bank did show a charging indication. We are yet to test how fast it can charge and for how long – the panels need to be facing the sun and a certain minimum level of sunlight is required for the charging to start.
We’ll have to see how useful it will be in practical daily situations. Our goal, btw, is to charge all our USB-powered mobile devices only through solar. I know that’s impossible, but we just want to take away as many hours of charging as possible from the direct AC power supply.
We bought it directly from Amazon US store as I had a Gift Card in USD – not many solar charger options are available on Amazon.in anyway.
I hope this will inspire us to more towards a more sustainable lifestyle quickly. High time it happened.
