Solar power can be quite challenging to understand.


Identifying the proper battery voltage, amperage, capacity and making sure your system is operating at peak efficiency can be a task.


But it doesn’t have to be.


Solar should be as easy as laying your panel out in the sun and forgetting about it.


You shouldn’t have to be someone who’s off grid for weeks at a time, climbing mountains and blazing new trails to be able to enjoy, and make use of, renewable energy.


Solar should be intuitive and simple.


It should be a power source that everyone can harness.


With these thoughts in mind, we developed the LightSaver line of portable solar chargers.


This line of chargers feature simple operation, integrated batteries and lightweight construction.

The LightSaver weighs in at only 4.9 ounces. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket and powerful enough to charge an iPhone 7 1.5 times.

We understand that not everyone will be to always charge from solar. The LightSaver is not only a powerful solar charger, but also a battery bank that can be charged from any USB charging source.


Admittedly, I am no sportsman.


I enjoy the outdoors, but rarely find myself camping for extended periods of time or hiking for days on end.


I am what you would call, “the average bear.”


Can the LightSaver provide serious value to my life?


I put that question to the test over the past week.


Every morning I unrolled the LightSaver to charge up and every evening I rolled it up and charged my cell phone. (The LightSaver charges in about 6-8 hours of full sun).

Guess what? It’s been nearly 7 days and I’ve charged my cell phone solely from solar power collected by the LightSaver.


Knowing that regardless of where I am, I can unroll the LightSaver and rely on it to keep me charged up, connected and safe is a great feeling.

Not only does the LightSaver have the power to keep me connected, it’s so compact and easy to store I almost forget it’s there.

We understand that some of you have different power needs than I do.


Many people want to charge multiple devices and need something with a little more “umph.”


Enter the LightSaver Max.

The Max was designed with power-hungry users in mind who want to charge multiple devices and still have power left over.


The Max features the same basic design as the LightSaver, but packs nearly 5 times the battery capacity!


Go ahead, try to empty this battery.


I dare you.

Put simply, I would have to put forth some real effort to deplete its whopping 18,000 mAh battery. (The LightSaver Max features the same great solar charge time of 6-8 hours of full sun)


No matter if you are like me and just need to charge your phone, or a more active user who wants to charge a phone, tablet, DSLR camera, bluetooth speaker and many devices at the same time, the LightSaver line can fit your needs.


LightSaver products make solar easy.
