About Us. Our Core Values. Our Beliefs.

We spend a lot of our lives plugged in to devices that plug in to walls, but when we try to escape those walls we want to stay connected to the people we plugged in to connect with in the first place. Sometimes it works. Sometimes…not so much.

My friends and I were camping recently. It was a four-day trip and by the end of the second day our phone batteries were running low. One of my friends had a USB battery we could charge from, but it wasn’t going to be enough to keep one phone going for four days, let alone all of them.

That’s where this site was born. When we got back from the trip, we started looking up solar battery charges and we realized something.

There’s a lot of solar powered stuff out there that we could be using and aren’t.

It’s not just solar powered chargers for our phones. There are solar powered lights for your garden and your deck. There are solar powered options for any number of things. The problem is, some of them are great and some of them are crap.

That’s where we come in. We’re going to talk about solar power and the products that use it. We’re going to talk about everything from solar panels to power your house to the chargers we ended up buying to bail out our phones on camping trips.

We lead busy lives. We don’t always have access to an outlet. We don’t always have access to extra batteries. We can’t afford to lose contact with the world just because we’re too far from an outlet.

So we’re going to talk about solar power. We’re going to talk about what works and we’re going to talk about what doesn’t. Because that’s what we need to know.
