Solar and Battery-Less Devices
Batteries Die! The battery in any battery-operated device will die eventually and, usually, when you need it most, like a flashlight or radio you don't use often but really need when you need it; especially those kept in vehicles for "emergency" use. Has there been a time when you needed a flashlight only to find the batteries were dead? Then there's the damage caused by leaking batteries. . .
Acquiring products that don't rely on batteries alone helps insure that the device will function when needed. Though they usually will contain rechargeable batteries, they may still be able to function, by some other method, even if the rechargeable batteries die.
Solar power provides cleaner, more sustainable electricity, but few people can afford to mount solar panels on their houses, and few power providers have invested significantly in solar power generation. It's time to take solar power into your own hands. These devices won't let you take your house off the grid, but they will help reduce your power bill, reduce reliance on fossil fuels and reduce the cost of replacing batteries.
