The Battech Solar iPower Charger launched today with a veritable armoury of connectors, allowing you to charge just about any mobile device out there. The only other solar charger I had so much as glanced at was the Solio, but renewable chargers are very handy accessories to have, even if they just sit in your glove box for those emergency situations. One little projectI was always wondering about was a wind charger that was being developed for Orange – very cool idea, but I don’t think it ever saw the light of day.
