Nice and New: Solio Solar Charger

Wow, well this is unexpected. While I'd expect to find a solar charger for your gadgets at a more eco-oriented store, I never thought I'd see one at Urban Outfitters. However, it makes sense that this company is selling chargers, since so many of their customers have a glut of gadgets that need recharging.

The Solio Solar Charger ($80) combines a solar panel with a rechargeable battery and comes in a durable case that will provide needed protection for the charger when it's stashed in a backpack or overstuffed purse. The charger also comes with interchangeable charging tips that will attach to most mobile phones, iPods, and other mobile devices. The battery will store power for up to a year, and if the sun isn't out, you can blog the charge into a USB port to charge it up via your laptop. What a great idea — and when a solar charger is sold at a big retailer like Urban Outfitters (though it's only available on the Internet for now), it's more likely that the idea of charging your gadgets with the sun's power will become commonplace.
