Nowadays, solar cells are extensively utilised for power generation. You can see them everywhere, ranging from small chargers to farms specified for power generation. Because of a property called photoelectric effect, a solar cell has the ability to convert light energy into electrical energy. In the atomic level, it absorbs light photons and releases free electrons which leads to direct electric current. Solar cells are connected to form solar panels. The larger the area of a panel is, the more electricity it produces.
Despite the fact that solar energy is clean and free, it has an unavoidable disadvantage, that is, the Sun does not shine 24 hours a day. Even in heavy cloudy weather, it is not possible to absorb the energy emitted from sun entirety. This resulted in the invention of solar-powered battery chargers. The simplest solar-powered battery chargers consist of a panel, a battery, and a controller.
There are several types of solar chargers in the market with different sizes and capacities. Having USB ports, they are mostly applied as mobile phone chargers. However, they are not limited to phones. Some of them could be connected to the power grid in case of sunlight shortage. Portable solar chargers are extremely useful for hungry-power devices, especially when no electrical grid is available; e.g. camping, hiking, and outdoor activities.
