Solar energy can easily go further than the home. There are now a variety of other solar powered accessories, which enable you to benefit the environment, save money, and save your personal time. These accessories vary from in the home (lights, small fans, chargers) to the out of doors (garden lights, security lights, flood lights, and decorative lights). Solar powered accessories can protect you with things such as electronic fences, or they can aid you around town, with chargers, and solar powered bags.
Solar powered accessories require a small initial investment, but after that point carry warranties, and last for many years. Over this period of time immense amounts of money will be saved by using solar energy instead of paid electricity, as well as saving by not needing to buy new products or different electrical accessories.
There are many new products of solar powered bag accessories. These bags vary from canvas bags, back packs, and laptops. With solar panels on the outside of these bags, they collect enough energy that it is possible to energize accessories, such as iPods, cell phones, cameras, and more. The bags can entirely charge the accessories, and can be carried around for future charging. These bags are long lasting, often come with warranties, and also have extra room for your non-electronic belongings. The bags quickly pay for themselves with the convenience of always having energy with you, as well as saving on large electric bills from your accessories.
When you don’t need to charge on the run, there are in home solar-powered rechargers. With multiple plug adaptations, they sit at home in convenient bright light, storing enough energy to energize any of your gadgets, including laptops, camcorders, and more. It is also possible to plug in small lights and fans. These two products do, however, come in their own solar variety, where it is possible for the lamp and fan to collect energy during the day and then work all night long without the help of energy from a power grid. All of the above products save money by not having to plug into the utility grid or purchase new batteries. After the initial investment (which is quickly made up for), these products can only save you money.
Solar garden lights are a significant addition to category of solar accessories. They come in many different varieties including solar stepping stones, flood lights, stake lights, security lights, and pond lights, and much more. Each of these are very easily installed, the easiest being the solar stake light, which requires about 15 seconds to stake the light into the ground. Each of these products needs to be placed in a location where they will be able to collect sunlight all day, so that they can shine all night long. It is possible for them to promote ambiance, cast light and shades across artistic gardens, and to secure homes with flood and security lights.
Solar fences are easily purchased and installed, storing enough energy in a 24 hour period to continue to power the fence for two weeks. It is possible to use solar fences to keep people in or out, to train dogs, and to promote security.
