Digital nomad’s are always looking for a way to power their devices when they’re out on an adventure.

The Solar Scroll from SOUL is a portable solar charger that you can stick in your bag or pocket and roll out whenever you need to charge up, making it a necessity for the gadget hungry traveller.

You can use this portable solar charger in a number of different ways; lay it out on the ground and leave it to harness the power of the sun, clip it onto your bag and charge while you walk, or fill the battery with electrical goodness from a wall plug to create a battery pack that you can keep topped up on the go.
