Solar Charger from KIWI Choice Might be the Versatile Charger you've been waiting for
Solar chargers have been popping up like May flowers recently, and an Ottawa, Canada firm, KIWI Choice, is marketing its new U-Powered Solar Charger which stores a 2000 mAh battery but offers several options for charging. It also provides 11 different tips to charge a wide variety of portable devices.
What makes the KIWI Choice U-Powered Solar Charger different from all the other choices out there? The variety of tips provided is certainly a plus, and the charger also has rear-mounted magnets so you can attach it to the side of a car or other metallic surface to gather sunlight. Whether the KIWI solar charger would cling well enough to withstand high speeds or wind resistance might be something you’d want to experiment with cautiously, since at the quite reasonable cost of $49.99, you still wouldn’t want it to become road kill.
The disadvantages of the KIWI Choice solar charger are those shared by its competitors. Solar power has its own timetable, and it might not coincide with that of too-busy humans. It takes 17 hours for the KIWI solar charger to be fully charged under sunlight. That time is reduced to 3.5 to 4.5 hours if charged with USB or adaptors.
There’s a demo video on the company website, and the KIWI U-Powered Solar Charger can be juiced up not only by the sun but by a USB outlet, AC charger, or car charger on rainy days. Solar energy is a clean choice, since by using a device like this, you are eliminating disposable batteries and the problems associated with throwing them away. It’s definitely a new charger with potential that you may want to add to your green device collection.
