Is There a Waterproof Solar Charger?
By Mike Jerry
Many people using solar chargers want to know if there is a waterproof solar
charger available. Most of these people who like to use their solar chargers
while at the beach are afraid that the water splashing around will ruin their
chargers. Solar chargers are very durable and most can withstand the normal
splashing that occurs at the beach.
The sun power that is used to operate a solar charger is a great way for people
at the beach to keep their electrical devices running. Because solar chargers
are meant to be used outside, they are naturally waterproof. They are made to

are easy to find, the actual concern is more for the
devices you are going to be charging with your solar energy charger. Most

Another solution for people who are afraid of water getting to their electrical
devices is that they can put them in a plastic bag and only have the cord of the
solar charger coming in through a small opening. This will protect the
electronic device while still allowing it to be charged. This is a great option
for sitting around the pool or at the beach. If the weather gets really bad, you
should consider just packing everything up and heading for cover.
Solar chargers are very durable and can withstand most weather related
