The Best Solar-Powered Phone Chargers

Smartphones are getting larger, which is great for video streaming but bad for battery life. Even the best batteries rarely go more than a day. That's why when you're off the grid, a solar powered phone charger can be a life saver. Here are solar-powered devices we recommended using to make sure your cell phone has endless battery life. Some of these solar phone chargers will top off your phone. Others produce enough electricity to power your phone, lights, and even a battery-powered cooler.

Other Solar Powered Phone Chargers

There are many other solar powered phone chargers on the market. They don't match the quality of GoSun's lineup, but it's always good to know all the options available. Here are three other products chosen from Good Housekeeping:

Solar Power Bank: This do-it-all device is a battery pack, dual flashlight, and compass. It has options to charge wirelessly or with a cord. At just under six inches, this portable solar charger is small enough to pack in your backpack. It also has an IPX4 rating, so it's rugged.
Portable E.Lumen Multi Mode Solar Charger: This flashlight and solar charger in one comes with an internal battery so it doesn't have to be in the sun while it charges your phone. Lay it out in the morning to collect sunshine and use it at night for a boost of power to your phone and flashlight. 
21W Dual USB Solar Charger: Hook this solar charger up to your backpack on your next hike and charge your phone or battery pack as you walk. The panels unfold to span about 18 inches, which is lots of surface area to capture sunshine. It can charge two devices at once and is lightweight, weighing in at just under a pound.
