Solar power in your pocket, just in case!!!!

Technology is a passion of mine, I know, for those of you that have read my articles for the last 1, 2 or 3 years you probably think yeah, technology is your passion check! One of the things that I am curious about is how people use technology. One of the areas that people are beginning to embrace technology more and more is the area of alternative or renewable energy. That got me thinking about the concept of personal energy. When you are in your car or your house, you normally have a power source (Car or House) that you can consume. But sometimes you are away from home, and you need a boost for your devices. More power means more talking!

Based on that concept, I wanted to talk about the many portable batteries that are available. In particular, I wanted to talk about the devices that come with, or include a solar or wind turbine that you can hold. The reality of portable renewable power is that you can use the included battery to charge your phone, and in sitting by a window, you can recharge that battery with the solar panel. Wind power doesn’t work inside at an airport, but you can use the wind turbine outside.  But the handheld mini-solar batteries are useful indoors or outdoors. They do not receive a charge from overhead lights, but they do, if you see any part of the sky, charge indoors.

The first thing we have to manage is talking. If you don’t use your phone often to talk, you don’t need to carry a battery (until you do). If you go away from where you live, and hike, using the GPS of your phone, at that point you should consider taking a battery with you. I have a small solar-powered battery that I carry in my bag, just in case.

Power Consumption sources for smartphones

  1. Content connecting and releasing cellular networks (IE when you are driving on the highway for more than 100 miles)
  2. Having WiFi on, but not at home, no network connection.
  3. We were talking on the smartphone.
  4. GPS on and directions being given
  5. Taking pictures!

Thanks for reading – have a wonderful day!
