5. For the gadget-lover: BioLite SolarPanel 5+ charger
The undeniably cool SolarPanel 5+ from BioLite charges portable devices without an ounce of carbon emissions.
An integrated sundial allows for direct sun capture (in the great outdoors or on a kitchen counter) and an ultraslim 5-watt battery saves power for later to juice up phones – tablets and other devices.
Even better: Every purchase helps BioLite sell off-grid cooking, charging and lighting solutions at subsidized prices to families in developing countries.
So far the social enterprise has helped more than 115,000 people light their homes and phase out the use of dirty cookstoves.
