There’s nothing worse than sitting in a beautiful park reading a new book (on your e-reader), getting to the big suspenseful moment and ________, you just ran out of battery!  Or maybe you’re tired of Electronic Vampires sucking the electricity from your home or RV.  We were!  So we took matters into our own hands: our ‘Silver Bullet’ is a Solio Bolt.  It’s a small device that captures the power of sun’s rays and stores it in a (built-in) rechargeable battery.  We’ve been using our Bolt for a couple months to charge our phones, and our digital camera; we can honestly say this works and we love it.

Solio Bolt Charging Nook

The Bolt is simple to use:

  1. Stick it in the Sun for a Day
  2. Sunlight Charges the built-in Battery
  3. Plug in your Vampire Electronic Device (the Bolt charges most USB powered devices: Nook, GoPro, Smart Phone, GPS, CamelBak Water Purifier, etc.)
  4. Save some cash on your electricity bill and spend it on a Microbrew (or better yet, buy a friend one!)
  5. That’s all we’re tellin ya, if you want more check out the Solio Website.

What’s more cool you ask……how about getting a Solio Bolt for FREE!  We emailed Solio, told them “we love the Bolt solar charger” and showed them how we use it on the road.  Solio reached out and gave us a virtual high five!  Turns out they like Gone With the Wynns and offered to give away one of their Solio Bolt chargers to ONE of our lucky followers.  With a few clicks you’ll be entered to win one of your very own Electronic Vampire Killers!
