Anyone have any experience or some idea about solar charger for phone/player/batteries?

Price range, models? How it all weighs and if effective walks?

Try the Forum. Sure there's some freak technology explain how and what and how to produce it.

Don't know but I got to see models that work.
Long, continuous loading. Light day pay won't be enough for a full charge when the panels at the top of the pod in full disclosure. More appropriate emergency equipment.
There is also handled cargo (Dynamo) suffering from slow loading problem.
You explore, and connect with nature. There will be enough power sources.

My experience says that you don't need.

We were able to get by for a month and a half without a cell phone charger. It depends of course on device usage habits, we for instance not lit up the phones at all, only in the evening to send SMS.

When we stop at Angels/close/hostels, we mteinim the devices with their kind.

Because the message was written in SJ Forum, I guess you're asking in the context, and for a trip abroad, where the interest is more important.

Solar charger too slow-usually only if you are a day of rest instead used properly. Much easier than working on batteries charger every electronics store can get. Travel stores saw even a model with 4 AAA batteries, but he did a bad job (though the expensive kind).

I went with solar charger for gps data logger. All day long he was attached to the solar panel, and so he could stay switched on all the time.
The Panel/charger I have came with the logger. I have no idea about the doubt and stress and things like that, but he did the job.

My friend tried to buy solar charger a zap at $ 100 and received a machete barely worked, and helped him to recharge my phone.

Anyway, I don't think that a mobile device in the Israel National Trail (INT) needs something like that. I even made a brief call from time to time, and charged once a week/two weeks in a room. Just need a device with a battery.

First of all, the message was supposed to be published in Forum equipment, confused.

Thanks for your help, it seems unsuccessful as it may be, I will check the solution (although less green) using batteries for charging.

Thank you very much.

Chargers with batteries isn't something to rely on when trunk but as an emergency battery for not much more, call for a full charge should carry lots of batteries. It seems to me more logical solution is to get another battery to phone and upload both there (and that's only if you really need to talk much on the phone, not many times that goes too long without power point)

I'm less concerned about the phone, more importantly my music player.

Come on, this issue belongs to the Forum.

If you write, then leave you and music phones. As I already rewrote others phone off enough also to month with one day. Enjoy the scenery and the quiet.

From what I saw the critical thing with solar chargers is to direct them to the Sun. If you are heading north on the wooded area could put it on. I saw one used walking North on Arizona and several hours a day in the sun exposed enough to load an MP3 player.
Walking each other Greece much more troublesome to adjust the charger used.
Anyway, in my experience is much more easy to use AAA batteries that need to be replaced every few days.

What does the subject technology has begun to develop very fast in recent years due to the huge investments in renewable energy, and eventually this technology gets (and up) for personal charges so how often updated with the changes.
