Solar Joos Orange

Instead of spending big bucks on battery packs for your phone that will be useless as soon as you upgrade your handset, why not spring for something that can power damn near anything. The Solar Joos Orange ($150), which charges about 3.5 times faster than other portable solar chargers, features high-efficiency solar cells that are set into a durable, injection-molded polycarbonate case that's waterproof, sandproof, and generally rugged. It sports a 5400mAh lithium-ion polymer battery and a USB port for charging or powering everything from an iPad to a low-wattage fan. In addition, you can hook it to your computer to see reports on your power consumption and generation. It's like your own portable power plant, minus the overweight, donut-eating workers. [via]
