Several solid-performing solar device chargers have appeared on the market recently. And now the folks at Wenger (the legendary swiss army knife maker) have joined the action with a foldable, all-in-one solar charger and battery pack.
The Standard Portable Solar Charger model is designed with campers and outdoor enthusiasts in mind, but it can certainly be used for emergency use as well (or just to lessen your energy usage from the wall socket). Measuring 10″ x 6.7″ x 1″ and weighing just over one pound, the Wenger uses a 2200mAh lithium battery pack with micro USB adapters for charging your gadgets. The 2.25-watt photovoltaic panel produces enough power to charge a variety of electronics like phones, cameras, and GPS units, and can juice up an average smartphone in under 4 hours.
