Coffee makers, laptops, and cell phones are some of the things that portable solar panels can power.

You could always roll up your solar panel and bring it along backpacking, it really is possible!

Personally, I am consistently amazed at solar panels. Magically, they convert sunshine into electricity, all without asking for much attention or upkeep! These are amazing little bundles of technology that enable you to stay powered, if you really want to. However, when I go backpacking, I prefer to be unplugged!
