Anker PowerPort Solar Lite

The Anker PowerPort Solar Lite is just 18 by 11 inches when deployed and unfolded and its 11-by-6-inch dimensions when stowed are no bigger than a tablet. At just 12.5 ounces, it’s also very light and very efficient at giving a steady charge even when faced with the odd cloud or two.

Solar Chargers like the Anker PowerPort Solar Lite are aimed at people who intend to be off grid for perhaps a week or more. Larger USB Battery packs can now keep a smartphone charged every night for up to a week and are very small / portable. The ideal situation would be to have both a solar charger and a USB Battery pack (that you could recharge with the Solar Charger).


But if you’ll be off grid for more than a week and you can’t be sure of your power needs, or you want something to tuck into your emergency kit, a solar charger could refill a small battery pack in a day or directly charge a smartphone in two to three hours.

There is nothing new or outstanding about the build of the Anker PowerPort Solar Lite ! It feals similar to most of the other Solar chargers currently on the Market. As with most solar chargers it has solar panels sewn to a woven-nylon backing with any wires hidden between the layers and charging connections in a pocket at the end.

Riveted holes or around the edges to help you hang or mount the unit when deployed.

Wrapping it up

If you’ll be off the grid for more than a couple of days and a USB battery pack won’t keep your gadgets charged, the Anker PowerPort Solar Lite is the way to go for easy and reliable power at a good price. Paired with a good USB Powerbank and you’ll be set for all of your off grid USB charging needs indefinitely.
