The Best Solar Chargers in 2020

The Best Solar Chargers in 2020

 A good solar charger promises us freedom from wall outlets and total independence from energy grids. As we've seen in 2020, disaster can strike at any time and take away what we thought were dependable sources of energy. Look no further than the wildfires in the Pacific Northwest or the hurricanes in the Gulf states (to say nothing of the global pandemic that's still going on).

With grid freedom in mind, this guide goes through the best solar chargers available right now. Of course we are biased, but we think GoSun provides the best products on the market, whether you need to charge an Android phone or an entire battery-operated refrigerator. Below is a selection of a variety of solar chargers to fit any need (or budget).

Other Solar Chargers

If for whatever reason GoSun's chargers don't meet your needs, there are other chargers on the market. Here's what Tom's Guide has to say about the RAVPower 24-watt solar panel and its features:

  • Foldable waterproof travel charger that packs four solar cells into a relatively compact package.
  • Trio of USB ports, letting you charge multiple devices at once. The similar design of the BigBlue 5V 28W Solar Charger combines a folding multi-cell panel with a built-in digital ammeter.
  • 360-degree kickstand that can prop it up or let it hang, and a built-in sundial helps you find the best position for catching the most sunlight.
