July 24, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Smartphones and tablets keep getting faster and smarter every year, but their battery life doesn’t seem to be getting any better. All it takes is for you to make a couple of calls, browse the Web for a bit, watch a video or two, and your device will announce, with a sad beep or the dreaded red battery icon, that it can’t go on for much longer. Luckily, there’s a solution to this problem and it arrives in the form of power banks.

Solar external batteries

While power banks do come in all shapes and capacities, there’s one type that’s become incredibly popular over the past couple of years – solar power banks. Why? Well, mostly because they do not depend on electrical outlets and can be charged wherever you are. That is, as long as the sun’s shining in the sky. Anyway, solar power banks are, without a doubt, ideal companions on your camping trips and seaside vacations, which is why we’ve picked out five of them today just for you. Interested? Scroll on. :)
