Sure, the Brunton SolarPort 4.4 Portable Power Source isn’t really a tool. However, it could be used to power a tool — at least during the day.
As the name implies, the SolarPort is solar powered, using polycrystalline solar panel construction. With a maximum power output of 4.4 watts at 6V or 12V, 5V USB output at 500mAh, and a 12V vehicle port, its versatility becomes obvious. Charging a cell phone, powering a small radio or putting a touchup on that fading cordless drill battery could be useful applications for the SolarPort. Other features include:
- Can be used in multi-unit series for additional power output
- Hinged case measures 9 1/4″ x 6″ x 1 1/2″ when closed
- Weighs 19 oz
- Includes Brunton BattJack(tm) charger for AA & AAA NiMH and NiCad batteries
The SolarPort 4.4 is part of a full small line of solar powered units from Brunton, and pricing starts at $99.
