And if you're planning on going to a camping trip or any outdoor activities and you can't leave your cell phones or laptops or other gadgets behind, then you won't be able to use them at all if their batteries run out, unless of course you pack extra batteries or find a wall outlet out in the woods.

That is until certain modern and technological advances paved the way for portable solar power. These devices work by harnessing the sun's rays to generate power.

Usually, devastation caused by a natural disaster often includes electricity. Power will be unavailable for days or weeks after the event and quick recovery for the residents will prove to be more difficult.
