Why would a solar charger review be on a photographer’s website blog? Well.. in addition to having a passion for photography I am passionate about the great outdoors as well as being prepared for most emergencies. You can chalk it up to Boy Scout training, surviving the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, camping in the Mohave desert with my Dad who taught me to survive by knowing where to find water, which plants to eat, how to kill and cook a rattlesnake, or my pseudo survivalist mentality. In the summer of 2012 Tracy and I were going on a long camping trip. As we were preparing, we ventured into our local Costco and one of their roaming vendors had a table set up selling portable solar panels that had an included rechargeable battery. I’m a REAL sucker for those manned booths where the salesperson talks about the product. It’s one of the reasons I don’t watch late night infomercials…..
