Top Solar Tech You Need in 2016
If you’re the type of person who always has to have the newest gadgets, you’d going to love this trend surging in the tech market—solar energy. You may think of clunky solar panels when you think of renewable energy, but recent innovations have transformed the solar tech lineup into something pretty savvy. We at Home Improvement Leads have a few favorite gadgets in mind that we know you’ll want to get your hands on.
Cook Off the Grid
What if you could go camping and still cook up some mean grillage and veggies without hurting the environment? You can! Go truly off the grid with a variety of portable solar ovens. Most of these cookers come with convenient carrying cases, which you can pile into the car or attach to a backpack. Models like the GoSun Stove Sport Pro cook meals in minutes and reach up to 550℉. That’s not too shabby for something that makes no fuel mess, has no flames, and requires minimal maintenance.
These ovens and cookers soak up the sun’s power and convert it through parabolic reflectors and a tubular design, which means it’s compact and sleek—just what you want from your tech.
Smartphones have revolutionized the cell phone industry, and we’re more mobile and better connected than ever. Can you say the same for your energy usage? Well, portable solar chargers may be the answer to get you mobile and clear your conscience.
There are hundreds of solar-powered phone chargers on the market, but we love models like Goal Zero’s Venture 30 Recharger. This small yet powerful device can charge your tablets, cell phones, cameras, and more. It includes a built-in USB port and charges for up to 4 hours after soaking up the sun’s energy. Even better, it’s waterproof, so you can maintain your eco-conscious lifestyle—rain or shine.
Kick Back and Relax
Need to unload some stress? Grab a pair of solar-powered headphones, like a pair from Helios that uses Bluetooth® technology to play your favorite jams. You can kick back in your backyard and grab a drink from a solar-powered cooler, like SolarCool. This revolutionary cooler keeps your drinks and food refrigerated, eliminating the need for ice. Just let it charge up and take it anywhere you want to go. You can even plug in your devices to get some free power for your gadgets.
Other recreational tools, like reading lamps, bike locks, backpacks, cars, and more, all have solar options. It’s easier now than ever before to stay green on the go!
