Looking to power your smartphone, tablet or other small electronic device while camping, picnicking or just on the go? The Solio Classic 2 Solar Charger and Battery pack may be just what you're looking for.

Part of Brownells' Emergency & Survival Gear line, the Solio Classic 2 is a fantastic size for bringing along on your outdoor excursions. It can be charged via a standard USB charger ahead of time or used with ol' Sol when your excursion takes you away from 110 voltage. Whether you're looking to keep your phone charged in case of emergency or you want to run your tablet for taking notes, a solar charger like the Classic 2 is portable and powerful.

The Classic 2 charges in 8 to 10 hours depending on the strength of the sunlight and holds the charge for up to one year. It can power a tablet to full power from 50 percent in one charge, or can recharge a smartphone up to three times in the same amount of  battery life. A piece of gear like the Classic 2 is vital for maintaining communication via a cellphone or for simply keeping your e-reader at full charge for a lazy day in the hammock. Whether you're an avid outdoor enthusiast or someone concerned about preparedness, it's an inexpensive way to keep small electronics at full power.

MSRP: $100.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness.
