s-Charger Series

Great portable solar chargers that can tough it outdoors.

waterproof

Waterproof

The panels are completely encapsulated. The circuits are sealed in silicon. Tested to 40 feet and corrosion resistant! Corrosion tests require placing the solar panel in a 85% salt humid environment for 48 hours. We ran ours at 72 hours. Suntactic solar chargers are pretty much impervious to all moisture.

outdoor

Outdoors

Suntactics sChargers make an excellent electrical hub for outdoor gatherings, parties, concerts, or camping trips where you’re miles away from electricity. They are rated for military use, natural disasters and tested to 20F below zero.

Miles Driven by an Average Passenger Vehicle

Passenger vehicles are defined as 2-axle 4-tire vehicles, including passenger cars, vans, pickup trucks, and sport/utility vehicles.
In 2011, the weighted average combined fuel economy of cars and light trucks combined was 21.4 miles per gallon (FHWA 2013). In 2011, the ratio of carbon dioxide emissions to total greenhouse gas emissions (including carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, all expressed as carbon dioxide equivalents) for passenger vehicles was 0.988 (EPA 2013a, EPA 2013b).
The amount of carbon dioxide emitted per gallon of motor gasoline burned is 8.89 × 10-3 metric tons, as calculated in the “Gallons of gasoline consumed” section above.
To determine annual greenhouse gas emissions per mile, the following methodology was used: carbon dioxide emissions per gallon of gasoline were divided by the average fuel economy of vehicles to determine carbon dioxide emitted per mile traveled by a typical passenger vehicle. Carbon dioxide emissions were then divided by the ratio of carbon dioxide emissions to total vehicle greenhouse gas emissions to account for vehicle methane and nitrous oxide emissions.
Calculation
Note: Due to rounding, performing the calculations given in the equations below may not return the exact results shown.
8.89 × 10-3 metric tons CO2/gallon gasoline × 1/21.4 miles per gallon car/truck average × 1 CO2, CH4, and N2O/0.988 CO2 = 4.20 x 10-4 metric tons CO2E /mile

s-Charger 8

The sCharger-8 solar charger is our favorite because has two USB ports and offers commendable output power. The S8 will perform better in hazy or low horizon sunlight conditions over the sCharger-5. As a result the sCharger-8 is a good choice for emergencies and power outages. The S8 can also sustain up to 5 people with charge.

s-Charger 14

The sCharger-14 is also the choice for complete off-grid charging. Power outages occur all the time because of climate change. This includes bad weather, hurricanes, floods and ice storms not to mention earthquakes! The sun eventually comes out but the power grid may not be up. Therefore having a solar charger could be a lifesaver.
