Hi,

i am in search of a solar charger that would be portable enough for longer hikes and camping away from the car.
What are you using and suggesting?

Thanks in advance for your time,
Evangelos

I use a foldable military style solar panel - you can find adapters to allow connection to your chargers.

Do your homework regarding specifications and output - some charge extremely slowly.

a lot of the goal zero are NOT solar. they ARE solar compatible, but all the small ones are simply a proprietary battery in a casing.

Eddie Bauer has a solar + 6000 MAH unit for $40, but they are on sale often. Picked one up a month ago. I have used a lot of the goal zero stuff, and they are great. I have the nomad 7 plus i have backpacked 80 miles with, and WILL charge a Sony A7r.

I recently saw a review of the Anker 21W solar charger. Looks really well-loved
