The solar charger

Another piece of essential gear has been our GoalZero solar charger. It's chief function has been to keep our iPhones juiced up. We both use our iPhones quite a bit; I was using it to navigate and record our route earlier in the trip. It works great for that, you can either charge the phone directly from solar or charge a set of 4 AAs that can later charge the iPhone. It didn't work as well for keeping AAAs charged, I don't know if it was the charger or batteries but after charging the batteries would only last a day or two in our lantern or headlamps. Also it's not enough to charge a laptop but it's light and when we are biking it works well strapped to the outside of the trailer.
