Good Luck Getting ServiceBy Rocky Thompson on August 18th, 2006
Suffer the ring of your cell phone in the backcountry an extra day with the Solio solar charger. This fanned-out solar panel gives you a full charge after about 8 hours in the sun, and it includes a suction cup that attaches to windowsâ€”hopefully your tent has windows. Youâ€™ll have to make sure you stay within a couple miles of the highway so you stay in cell range, too.
The Solio also charges iPods, but youâ€™ll just have to bring spare batteries for your noise-canceling headphones while hiking.
