Light Up, Charge Away

Need some juice? Tap the sun with the eGear 5-in-1 solar travel kit. The base stores energy from the sun, and you can use it to power five different attachments: a small LED flashlight, radio, fan, reading light or USB charger. You just choose the component you want, then slide it onto the body until it clicks into place.

Need some juice? Tap the sun with the eGear 5-in-1 solar travel kit. The base stores energy from the sun, and you can use it to power five different attachments: a small LED flashlight, radio, fan, reading light or USB charger. You just choose the component you want, then slide it onto the body until it clicks into place.

It’s great for those times when you’re away from an electrical outlet. If you’re hiking or camping, you can expose the tiny base unit to the sun during the day, then use what you need at night -- flashlight, radio, fan... or maybe a little bit of each. For an everyday backup power supply, you can keep the unit in your car, soaking up the sun on the dashboard. Then if you need a flashlight or your cell phone battery dies, you’ve got power standing by. (The USB charger attachment lets you run personal electronic devices, such as a cell phone, MP3 player or even a digital camera).

The creators of the 5-in-1 solar travel kit are Robert Walker and Susan Martin, founders of Essential Gear and avid paddlers, cyclists and hikers. They know firsthand the value of innovative, high-tech outdoor products. Adventure awaits... and you’ve got the energy to enjoy it!
