Energizer PowerKeep 12 and 36 Solar-Powered Charger

It would appear that I am reviewing a lot of Energizer’s PowerKeep products, made for solar charging. Today, it will be the Energizer PowerKeep 12 and 36, and they are some quite useful products.

Energier PowerKeep 12 Multi-Bay Battery Charger

The PowerKeep 12 is a solar powered panel that includes a micro-USB cable. You will need that micro-USB cable when you spread out the solar panels and absorb some good energy rays from Mr. Sun. These solar panels are very light for easy travel.

What you can do then is take that energy by attaching the micro-USB to the solar panel and then attach that to the four Energizer NiMH rechargeable AA batteries. You can see the box thing that holds the batteries, and there is a AAA battery adapter.

You can connect this battery-charging box to a USB port, or even an AC plug. This comes in really handy when it comes to charging just about anything.

You can go to the Engergizer PowerKeep site for more information, and here’s a link to Amazon where it can be purchased for $151.25.

Energizer PowerKeep Solar 36 Portable Solar Battery Charger

The PowerKeep 36 also has the portable flexible 4-panel solar powered panel. It doesn’t have a battery box that can recharge batteries, but it does have a compact 10,000 mAh power bank which 2 output ports.

It has a micro-USB cable, and you can charge the 10,000 mAh power bank at home using a USB port, in case that the sun is not out. So, it is again very handy to have around.

So, if you are looking for more information, head to the Energizer site. You can purchase it on Amazon for $169.88.

Energizer PowerKeep Wanderer Backpack

Two years ago, I had the chance to review some EnerPlex products (also known as Ascent Solar), and one of them was the Commuter and the Executive backpacks. I was hoping to review their products again for the holiday season, and I found out that Energizer has acquired the use of Ascent Solar products. Now Energizer has a great solar-powered product with the Powerkeep Wanderer.

This solar-powered backpack has a 10,000 mAh battery that is detachable and is capable of absorbing the sun’s rays for the sake of power to your mobile devices. In fact, it has two output ports on its power bank so you don’t have to worry about your smartphone or tablet losing power at a crucial moment. By the way, the PK10K power bank can be charged from the sun, AC, or a USB charging port.

Now, most solar backpacks have that feature, and it really is what you need for life on the go. Not having power when you need it can be terrible, and yet the PowerKeep wanderer takes it another step. It has an interior hydration pocket with a BPA-free reservoir and drinking hose. Oh, and it also has a waterbottle holder as well.

So what you have here is a backpack that you can take camping, and you will have lots of power as you are wandering, hence the term Wanderer. Honestly, if you are going to be away from civilization, and you still want to be in touch with all things digital, I will recommend the PowerKeep Wanderer.

You can find out more information about this product on the Engerizer website. It is available on Amazon for about $187.77 in red, green, and a really cool camo style.
