Brunton SolarPort 4.4

Providing an alternative power source for devices during camping trips and other outdoors activities, Brunton today launched its SolarPort 4.4 charger. The sun-driven power source unfolds to reveal panels that will recharge any USB device that draws 4.4 watts or less of energy, such as a digital camera or GPS unit. A general power connector is built-in for devices without proprietary connectors, and a bundled cradle will also power most rechargeable AA batteries.

The SolarPort is flexible, according to the company: a voltage switch can toggle the output between 6V and 12V for more sensitive electronics. Owners can further link as many as three SolarPorts together without cabling to increase the total charging power. Brunton officially sells its charger for $120.
