The Ankar 15W Solar Charging Device To Charge All Your Devices

Review of the Ankar 15W Solar Charging System

Life around the world has changed over the past decade where we are more addicted to living in a digital world. The issue arises where when there is a power outage we or when we out in the woods hunting or backpacking we have no way to keep our devices charged without available electricity. This happened to our family last summer when we had no power due to the hurricane that wiped out our electric for several days.

Luckily, as solar is getting cheaper and more compact we can now plug our devices into small fold-out solar panels that can keep our digital world operational. These panels have been around for awhile now but today they are cheaper, lighter in weight and the cost of them have dropped dramatically. 

As our smart phones have evolved over the years these little devices have a wealth of information on them that we cannot be stuck without. Even if the power grid does go down and cell service is knocked out our smart phones hold a large amount of data in them that we do rely on. From E-books, PDF’s, photo’s, music, and other entertainment that will help keep us occupied during times of no power.

Or Review of the Ankar 15W Dual USB PowerPort1Solar Charging System

Why I like The PowerPort Solar Lite

This small device says what it is going to do and it does it. This is one of the lightest and smallest charging systems that we have tried and it puts out a 15W charge. Measuring 18”x11” when unfolded and weighing in at 12.5 ounces it is smaller and lighter than many other more expensive models out on the market. When testing these great little solar changers we found that many on the market did not perform well when clouds were around, but this Anker went back to full charging when the clouds were gone from overhead.


With all the advancements in technology today all of us need to have some source of portable solar panels that are reliable and easy to transport. This is why The Ankar 15W Dual USB PowerPort is ranked high on our list of favorite devices.



I have always had an enthusiasm for homesteading and for living off the grid even though I live in a combination of country and urban setting. Living in Central Florida north of the big cities we have the best of both worlds, country and the conveniences that a person would have living in a large urban city. I personally have had a concern about our weakening economy and how it effects each and every-one of us. The second thing that I have a concern about is how most of the world view’s our country and what may happen one day here in the United States. My Life Experiences I was raised by parents that grew up during the great depression, they passed onto me what life was like and how people had to live during this time period. My family were farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders, they were raised this way and they passed onto me these qualities. I also have family members that live totally off the grid. They live in the North Woods of Minnesota which is a great location for living off the grid. The Southern Homesteader is a passion of mine, I love passing on and sharing information about cooking, news, being self-sufficient, living off the grid, canning, food storage, budgeting, and much more. Since this blog is a passion of mine I am constantly adding and tweaking this site to be a better resource for you. More About Me I grew up in Northern Illinois farm fields. After spending most of my life in large corporate business I decided to relocate to a small town on the nature coast of Central Florida. This is where I met my wife and between us we have 4 wonderful daughters. We have a small homestead where we raise our chicken and live freely. We also have a bug-out place in the mountains of North Carolina that we call our retreat. We spend time there getting things prepared for all our family members when SHTF. I am blessed with a wonderful family and the knowledge that God has given me so I can pass this along to you the readers. I will never tell what you what to do or what to purchase, I just am offering my opinion. I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you. Always feel free to contact me and drop me a note. I will do my best to respond to your emails in a timely manner. Thank you again, Tom Johnson
