Brunton Solaris and Solo Battery Charger

Need power? The Brunton Solaris charges any device you've got using included solar panels or a battery pack for low light conditions.

Charge everything from cameras to GPS to sat phones with this three-part system. It consists of a solar panel (Solaris), a battery pack (Solo, pictured), an inverter (for home charging), and all of the required cords and connectors. The system is worth the splurge for power-hungry hikers: The Solaris, made from CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide), is significantly more efficient–especially in low-light conditions–than most portable panels. Both components are available in a variety of sizes for different trip needs. Solaris ($160 to $413; 5 oz. to 1 lb. 10 oz.); Solo ($65-$399; 12 oz. to 2 lbs. 7 oz.); brunton.com. Reader service #122
