iPower SX Solar-powered Charger

UK-based Battech offers its iPower SX solar-powered charger that is perfect for those who are always on the go. The iPowerSX features an indicator light that shows the power remains in its battery. and relies on a 5.5V, 80mA crystalline solar panel that has a 5.3V, 500mA output. I think this gadget is best used when the skies are clear during the day. However, you can also recharge its internal battery via a USB port. The iPower SX retails for around $62 in the UK.
