The Voltaic Fuse Solar Charger is one of Voltaic’s new standalone chargers. What’s new & exciting is that it has about the 4 times as much solar power and twice the battery power as other solar chargers on the market. Who has 12 hours to charge their phone? What if you have any other devices?
The Fuse is the answer.
Plus, the Fuse and all our other new 4 Watt bags switch between 6 and 12 Volts which lets you charge your DSLR camera battery (via a direct connection to a DC charger base).
