Brunton Restoreimages/BruntonLove escaping the commotion for some time in the outdoors, but despise when your gadgets run out of juice?

The Brunton Restore solar charger allows you to power up your portable devices no matter where you are. The slim and lightweight (7.2 ounces) design enables it to slide easily into a backpack or coat pocket, and its rubberized, water-resistant outer shell and ability to withstand temps from -10 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit makes it tough enough for all your outdoor adventures.

Blue L.E.D. lights on the Restore's surface display the power level – the full four bars give you enough charge for a cell phone, MP3 player multiple times, a smartphone or gaming device – anything with a USB or mini-USB port is possible. With the Restore, one to two hours of sun equals six to seven hours of tunes. Brunton touts the ratio as one of the best ratios on the market.

Down to one L.E.D. – flip the unit open and let the solar panels soak up the sun – it'll fully charge in less than six hours. No rays? Use the USB or the 12V car adapter to recharge the Brunton Restore, or charge it ahead of time when you know you won't have access to external power. The unit will charge in about two hours using the car charger, and four hours using the USB.

With the lifetime output equivalent of 1,372 AA batteries and a retail value of $123.74, it's well worth it to know that whether you're on the river, the trail, or the slopes, you'll be able to charge your digital camera for a sunset shot, your MP3 player for some tunes, and your phone to call for a ride home.

Sarah Klingler

SKlinglerSarah Klingler, a Pittsburgh, Pa native, was practically born on the snow. Before she was 18 months old, her parents strapped her into her first pair of skis, and she fell in love with winter.

She's a ski instructor at Seven Springs resort, but when Klingler's not on the hill with students, you can find her snowshoeing, cross country and telemark skiing, or hiking through the pow with her snow-loving Labrador, Emma.

When the snow melts, Klingler mountain and road bikes, hikes, horseback rides, whitewater rafts, and dreams about chairlifts.
