"Our LightSaver was a phone life saver. We brought it with us on our 10,000-mile road trip across the U.S., utilizing it on lengthy drives and long hikes. There were times we didn't have access to regular electricity and our LightSaver kept our phones powered by the sun by day and by charger at night. The best part is that it's lightweight and small enough to store without taking up space."

- Justin and Ariele Champion of Wild We Wander


Made from Military grade thin-film solar technology that can take bullets and continue to perform, the LightSaver's durability is unmatched. 


The LightSaver’s flexible solar module wraps around the outside of the core taking up minimal space in your pack, pocket, or bag. When you're ready to recharge the LightSaver, unroll the panel to expose it to the sun.


Once fully charged simply roll it up and toss it into your pack and enjoy extended battery life on your hike or trip. A convenient micro-USB port also allows you to pre-charge the LightSaver before leaving home.


Perfect for charging cell phones, GoPro's GPS tracking devices, and other small electronics.

Important Notes

Charge the LightSaver at least once every three months for the best battery performance. If the LightSaver’s battery is completely drained, it may need to charge for a few minutes before the indicator light illuminates. Always store the LightSaver in a cool environment with a battery charged over 50 percent.


A little water on the LightSaver is not a problem, but allowing significant water inside the unit may corrode components. Saltwater is particularly corrosive and should be kept out of the device.

How It Works

The LightSaver collects energy from the sun when available, storing it in the internal battery. That energy is then available to charge a USB device anytime, eliminating the need to leave your device out in the sun. The LightSaver can also be charged from the wall or other USB sources using its micro USB input. 


When a device is plugged in, the LightSaver will charge the device until fully charged, or the LightSaver is fully discharged. The LightSaver turns on automatically with no button push required. If the LightSaver is fully discharged, the output will remain on until its battery has been charged to at least 10%. This protects against draining a device’s battery by turning it on and off, which is common in many other solar chargers. 


The LightSaver is not designed to charge a device from the solar panel directly. Instead, the solar panel charges the internal battery which, once charged, is available to provide power to other devices.
