Strap-On and Slap-On Solar Chargers by Suntrica

Suntrica has two interesting little portable solar chargers called the SolarBadge and the SolarStrap. They're small scale - very small scale - but ultra-portable possibilities for keeping your gadgets going while off-grid. And best of all, you can put them on just about anywhere.So that you can always keep the solar cell facing sunwards while out on the trails, the SolarBadge and SolarStrap are pretty versatile when it comes to where you can hook it on. For instance:

The smaller cells are capable of 3.7 Wh, while the larger SolarBadgePRO (shown above) is capable of 7.3 Wh. So it's just enough for you to be sure you can have a charge for your GPS, cell phone, flashlight or other device should you need it.

While the company is getting quite a bit of recognition, as is the product - such as earning second place in "Green — Consumer Hardware" category in CTIA's E-tech awards - they're just getting started and the product isn't quite to market yet. We'll wait, though, because having a charger that is this easy to tote around while charging is pretty handy.
