Ready to recharge your phones or camera in camp? While portable solar chargers are becoming common, the JOOS Orange is not only durable but also waterproof and even more importantly, it works in real-world light conditions, including in the shade and even when it’s raining lightly. It also charge more quickly than a lot of the alternatives, capturing up to 20 times more energy than other solar chargers. For instance, one hour in the direct sun equates to a charge for about two hours of 3G talk time. Definitely an essential for the modern world.
