solar power charger
at the end of the month i will be going on a week long camping trip. There is the possibility to get some charge time for my droid but its very inconvienent. i was wondering if anyone has any experience with a solar charger that works well. If you have can you give me some facts like; what does a good one cost, how much charge does it give, how long to charge, is it worth getting. thanks in advance.
I bought one of these for a 4 day fishing trip i was on.....
Verizon Motorola Droid Solar Charger (5 Star Rating): Google Checkout available.
It worked. We got a lot for rain, but the times it was sunny I put it out and it would charge it........not like using a wall charger, but keeps your charge up a bit, just slow going. You can put the panel out in the sun too and it will store a charge which then you can dump into your phone for 20 minutes to boost it up 10-20% from where it was or so. :)
I'm going on a weekend wilderness hike in the UP of Michigan this weekend and am trying out this one from REI:
PowerFilm USB+AA Solar Charger at REI.com
We'll see how it does. Based on the description, it charges two AA batteries and then I can plug the USB cable into that at any point and charge from the batteries.
I have one of these, not the exact one but same options:

Not good if you are hiking to camp as it is not light.
yea ive seen those but im looking more of a smaller thing, And it seems like from research that most of these only can give 10-20% more battery, anyone know of something that can fully charge phone??

ive seen those and they look like a good option, how well does it work. Like how long does it take to charge phone and stuff like that???

Each mfg should have specs on their site. If you need a full charge then find a device that equals or exceeds your device's battery's mAh rating.
