    If you have ever found yourself stuck with a dead cell phone or mobile device and no way to charge it then the Kiwi Choice KWS2 U-Powered Solar Charger – White is the product for you. This mobile device charger is the perfect companion for anyone with a cell phone because it allows you to have a back-up source of power to keep your phone or mobile device up and running. The U-Powered contains 3 solar panels that let you take advantage of using clean solar energy to power your handheld devices keeping you connected but doing so in an environmentally “green” way. For added convenience Kiwi Choice has placed a magnet on the back of the U-Powered so that you can stick the product to anything metal and let it charge hands-free.

This charger simply offers you peace of mind in ensuring you’re never stuck with a dead phone again whether you’re on the road, on vacation or simply out and about. Once charged the U-Powered will hold on to its power for at least 6 months. Fully charge it up once and then keep it in your purse, glove box or desk at work and rest assured you’ll always have a back-up power source. An added feature of this device is that it comes with an LED flashlight built in to the end of the charger.

    This product is also available in black.

    Solar Powered Motion-Sensing Light Adds Security Without Wasting Energy

    Sunforce Products 86318 Solar Security Light with Remote

    Security Lighting can be easily added to your home and does not have to involve expensive installations and a hefty increase in your electric bill. With the Sunforce Products 86318 Solar Security Light with Remote you can help keep your home and family safe using the sun’s free solar energy. This solar powered light is automatically activated when its attached sensor detects motion nearby. It has a hassle free installation process that requires no wiring. Easily mount the security light with its included mounting brackets or use the included ground stake to set the light up in your yard or garden. Both the solar panel and 2 independent LED lights are capable of rotating 360° to ensure that light is provided where needed and that the solar panel can receive optimum sunlight. The Solar Security Light is also able to be controlled via its included IR remote control. This remote control has a working distance of up to 20 feet allowing you to have total control over all of the security lights abilities. The Solar Security Light with Remote is water and weather resistant. Each light contains 5 white LEDs making 10 total LEDs when both are fully lit. Using the remote you have the option of adjusting the light output of each to use only 3 of its 5 LEDs.

    Hands-On Research
    I sampled the product for a week with no issues. It took about a day’s worth of sunlight to charge the battery up before it was able to function at night. Plastic frame makes it light and easy to move around or mount but at the same time makes me curious as to durability 6 months down the line. However, Sunforce helps alleviate the durability questions by providing a one (1) year warranty on the product. The lights worked great each night tested so I know the solar panel was doing its job successfully. The remote was a fun added feature to the security light and helps make adjustments easy when mounted. I wouldn’t recommend this light for a heavy duty application but for added security on a side yard, front yard or porch I think this light would work great.
