Bushnell Outdoors has introduced a portable power product line that includes both solar and battery devices. PowerSync features nine, lightweight and portable devices to provide power on demand via a USB port. Each device is housed in a durable, rubber-armored case that is built to protect the solar panel and high-capacity lithium-ion battery.
The PowerSync line features advanced amorphous silicon thin film solar technology that performs in less than full sunlight to collect energy in roll-able or foldable designs to provide more solar surface area with less weight.
The PowerSync solar line includes three products—SolarBook, SolarWrap and SolarWrap Mini. Featuring the largest solar collection capacity and dual lithium-ion batteries in two versions, SolarBook provides power in a tablet-sized, 24-ounce package. SolarWrap, available with either an extended and standard length solar panel, offers solar capability in a roll-able design that stows in a compact cylindrical case and weighs less than 11 ounces. The SolarWrap Mini is ultra-compact, weighing only 3 ounces.
The PowerSync battery line includes four products, with three featuring high-capacity lithium ion batteries and one with four rechargeable AA batteries. The Power Charger has two USB ports and a convenient field light for nighttime use, while the Battery Bar is a lightweight, easy-to-stow backup battery option in two versions. The AA Battery Charger can recharge devices via USB or the batteries can be removed to replace dead batteries.
The five solar products have suggested retail prices that range from $59.99 to $299.99, and the four battery products range in price from $54.99 to $99.99.
