If the grid goes down, having a mobile and renewable power source can keep you in the 21st century while everyone else is reverting to the 18th. Electronics are usually not an absolute necessity for survival, but they sure do make it easier. Even something as simple as a fully-charged flashlight or handheld radio can make a huge difference in an emergency.

Solar power is an excellent source of electricity for everything from casual camping to long-term survival scenarios. Solar panels passively soak up sunlight to produce a charge, and pairing them with a battery improves versatility by allowing you to recharge your devices at any time.
