In a day and age where texting, Tweeting and other forms of micro-blogging are the standard, it’s now expected for people to be well-connected, and sometimes we take for granted that a critical part of that is having enough battery power.
This is where solar device chargers can really come in handy: so long as there’s sunlight, you can keep your cell phone charged. This can be absolutely critical when it comes to disaster preparedness, as folks along Tornado Alley and the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of the United States can attest.
As for the charging of devices, simply plug in the black-colored connection cable to the port at the bottom of the JOOS. From there, choose which connection tip you require. iOS devices, Blackberries and Kindles will be conveniently covered with the connectors provided, as will many digital cameras. If you don’t have a device that had a connector tip include, don’t despair: use the female USB cable and plug in your device’s charging cable. Other charging tips are available at the Solar JOOS website. Nintendo DS, GameBoy, Sony PSP, and older Samsung and Motorola cell phone tips are available, retailing for $5.99 each from their online store.
