ECEEN 13W Foldable Solar Charger

ECEEN 13 Watts Foldable Solar Charger Panel

If you’re on the hunt for a no-frills solar phone charger, then the ECEEN solar charger is guaranteed to do the job. Despite having a panel size of only 13 watts, which supplies up to two amps, this charger is remarkably quick to bring your battery back to life.

Weighing in at only 0.7 pounds across two durable, monocrystalline silicon solar panels, it’s also extremely lightweight and will hardly add any bulk to your pack. While manufacturers claim it can charge two devices at once, its low charging power means we recommend using it with just the one — patience is definitely a virtue in this case.

When it comes to anything electrical, the fewer the features, the smaller the chance of anything going wrong. In this case, the ECEEN solar charger features no additional bells and whistles, just a canvas cover protecting the solar panels from damage when folded. It’s proof that simplicity can be the greatest feature of all.
