Combining this with solar power makes for an absolute necessity-a solar panel battery bank! Solar panel batteries are able to store solar energy you are using to charge your various devices with. Most often solar panel batteries are used to power electrical equipment such as cell phones, computers and small home appliances. More often than not you will find solar powered batteries being used in larger electric equipment like golf carts and RVs. With all the types of electrical equipment available on the market today there really is no excuse to not have your own solar powered battery bank.
The obvious benefit of having a solar panel battery bank is portability. When you go camping or backpacking, you want something that you can bring with you instead of wasting a lot of money on a big bulky kit. It is also nice to be able to charge certain devices while you are away from home. Just about any electronic device can be charged by a solar panel battery bank. These can be mp3 players, laptops, cell phones and just about anything that runs on electricity.
One benefit of using solar power to charge your devices is the ease of using light indicators to let you know when your battery is low and when it is time to recharge it. This allows you to know ahead of time how much of a charge you have left and if you need to purchase a new one or start using the ones you have. Some devices like hiking and climbing use an LED light indicator so you know how much energy you have left to power the device. Other examples include watches, fish finders and other similar items.
Another advantage of using a solar panel battery bank is the saving you will have on your electrical bill. If you use a combination of solar chargers, you will be able to eliminate your electric bill completely. If you get yourself a three solar panels system with two on the roof and one in the ground, you will be able to use this to supply the electricity for your entire household. The three solar panels you put on the roof are in charge of supplying the energy needed to keep your lights on and your air conditioning running.
Solar panel batteries also work great for powering other devices like GPS units, radios, cell phone chargers and other electrical devices. You can also get emergency backup power that will keep your devices going in case of an outage. A portable solar energy charger is great for camping trips, day trips and other long weekend trips. All you need to do is set up the unit and it will charge itself.
One of the most important things to look for in a battery is the lifespan. The life expectancy of the device will be important to how long you can charge two devices with it. You will need to research on the particular battery so that you know how well it works. You will also need to make sure that you get the right size of the solar panel battery bank. There are some that are too small and will not charge two devices while others can handle dual charging very well.
