Foldable Solar Battery Charger

Hot on the heels of the world's only pocket-sized solar lighter comes the worlds lightest and most compact solar charger. Weighing in at just nine ounces, this foldable charger fits in most backpacks and laptop bags and is powerful enough to charge most personal electronic accessories. Laptops, cell phones, iPods and PDAs all fit the bill, and it'll even charge NiMh, NiCd or Lithium ion batteries with an accessory charger. Each charger provides 10 watts of power (operating at 15.6 Volts) and can be daisy-chained together for anyone who needs solar mega-charging. It's pretty spendy, at US $299, but seems like a great fit for anyone who's doing some serious off-the-grid living or traveling and needs heavy-duty charging capacity. Available from Sundance Solar
