Small Wonder - Solar Powered Cell Phone Charger

No power? No problem... the sun is there!No power? No problem... the sun is there!

This new, compact portable solar cell phone charger is without a doubt, the right product at the right time. With "eco" the trendy buzzword of the moment in Japan and everwhere else, this lightweight (40gm, or less than 2 ounces) power source absolutely fills the bill. Clean, environmentally friendly power from the sun... now, at last, you CAN take it with you!



The sleek and stylish charger comes in black and white, and it's compatible with Apple's iPhone 4 and 4S smartphones.



This revolutionary new portable power source will absorb its maximum amount of solar energy in 6 to 10 hours, perfect for a day at the beach. If you don't have that amount of time or it's a cloudy day, just attach it to an AC adaptor and fill it up in only 3 hours. It takes roughly 15 to 25 minutes to charge up a dead cell phone and once charged, you've got 40 minutes of talking time.



You can be sure that upcoming versions will be compatible with other mobile phones and other personal electronic devices like mp3 players. Free power, low initial cost and never needing to buy a cell phone battery again? Priceless!

EDITOR'S NOTE: The solar charger mentioned in this article is no longer available. This solar charger from Amazon has gotten good reviews and is recommended as an alternative.
