If you or anyone you know is a solar power enthusiast, or is concerned about helping the environment, solar powered gadgets are the perfect gift or even “gag gift” for friends and relatives. The gifts available can be practical or fun, but all of them integrate solar power in some way. Here are seven interesting gifts that use solar power or solar cells:
•Water bottles that use solar power in the cap to create a lantern. This is perfect for those who love the outdoors, camping, and expeditions and great for little backyard camp-outs too.
•Solar-powered robots. These come in a wide variety of models and usually need to be assembled. Great projects for robot enthusiasts young and old alike.
•Laptop chargers. This is perfect for the technology lover, or anyone who has to use their laptop while travelling short or long distances.
•Fashion jewellery. While jewellery with solar cells is notfunctional, it creates a gorgeous striking contrast when paired with silver-toned metals. The tiny cells in solar panel jewellery give out a vivid, deep blue colour in general, and look appealing to the eyes.
•Rope lights. These are great for decorating your home and property outdoors without having to shoulder an extra utility burden.
•Night light. Night lights recharge during the day and provide the typical light during the night. Great simple way to provide night lights while eliminating need for electricity.
•Men’s Shaver/razor. The shaver is rechargeable and useful for anyone who travels or an avid camper.
Solar cells have been placed in necklaces, bracelets and even watches to increase their beauty. Check out these solar panel watches by visiting https://www.thewatchcompany.com.
