    Goal Zero seems to be the most trusted and used for portable charging. I know quite a few people who use them

    Still seems a little expensive. I know newer solar technology is out there that is cheaper, but it doesn't seem to be making it to market quite yet.

    This is the cheapest price I found:
    Amazon.com: Voltaic Systems 1023 Fuse 10W Solar Laptop Charger, 14-20V/4A Input, 16000mAh, 60 Watt Hour Capacity, Silver: Computers & Accessories

    hehehe....always makes me laugh....prices like $309.99........what....are they ashamed to charge that extra penny to round it off to $310? Is anyone really fooled by this so called "marketing" strategy? Seriously....does $309.99 sound cheaper than $310?

    On a different note: while new technology certainly makes things easier, it doesn't necessarily make things cheaper!

    I have the option of loaning a solar unit from a mate while I am away so I may take them up on that offer for now.

    When I first saw this photo I thought it was one of the "bullet proof" backpacks that fear stricken parents here in the US are buying for their kids. It's hard to believe there are people willing to pay for such an item (it's pretty expensive, maybe more than this solar pack) let alone actually believe that a bullet proof backpack is the answer. It's official, we've all gone off the deep end here in the states!
