Charging Flashlight batteries

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

Hi Jeff,

I would like to find a solar system that will charge the various rechargeable flashlight batteries I have. From AAA to D, and 9 volt size, nicad, NiMH, plus whatever other batteries I might buy. It needs to be portable, and fully dependable for function. (Heavy duty preferred.)I would also like it to be strong enough to charge a laptop computer as well. Do you know of anything designed to do this? Or, what I would need to assemble the pieces myself? I was thinking of using PVC as a portable frame and stand to hold the panels.

I’m new to solar panels and am unfamiliar with the system.

C. Crane is a great company and has the product you need.

Good Luck,

Jeff Yago
