Wanted Wednesday: Solar Paper Phone Charger


We use our mobile phones so much in our day-to-day explorations, from keeping in touch with clients to capturing an inspiring snap while on the move. However we constantly face the issue of keeping our phone powered up and there’s only so far the external chargers go. So this week’s #WantedWednesday is not only a superb fix for the problem, it completely fits with our adventurous ethos.

The Solar Paper charger from Yolk is the world’s thinnest and lightest solar powered charger. Whether you spend a weekend camping in the wilderness or need a way to power up your music speaker on a day at the beach, the Solar Paper charger is both water resistant and packs away easily setting it apart from other existing bulky chargers.


The charger came about from questioning how solar power can be easily incorporated into our daily activities. The resulting product merges two of Yolk’s strengths, impressively efficient solar technology and innovative design.

The simple design features 2 USB ports and an LCD screen that shows the power level. Although it’s available as a 5W, 7.5W, 10W and 15W model, ¬†another nifty aspect of this particular charger is the way that you can increase the wattage by attaching extra solar panels via magnetic connectors.

Always on an avid quest to find the very latest innovations that will aid our Global journey, this is definitely a smart piece of kit that we think everyone could use to aid theirs!
