    Check this out: Amzer 3500 mAh Battery Backup Solar Charger For Motorola - Motorola Droid A855 - Fommy.com

    It's like one of those portable phone charger batteries, but can also charge itself via the sun, ac/dc adapter, car charger, or your computer.
    This would be AWESOME to have on a plane ride or any other instance where you want extra capacity without having to plugin to the wall. I also don't want a giant bulky battery and door protruding from my phone. It is big enough as it is. We don't need to make it any bigger.

    This is probably next on my "to-buy" list.

    I definitely will.
    I'll have to write up a quick review when I've had time to play with it.

    Wow...The price difference is definitely so much!!!

    Not to be rude but how is it better for the iphone? They may label the purpose at an emergency charging item but what i've been looking for is a renewable energy charging device. This happens to be something along those lines.

    how to charge

    I purchased the 3500mAh solar charger. It is very well made. It came fully charged and charged my Droid with 30% charge left in about an hour. The four light charge level indicator dropped to three lights.
    Now, I have a question. The instructions packed with the charger are sketchy. To charge the unit using solar, do I leave the power switch on or off?

    That's great jeff, I was wanting to buy one. Which site did u use the frommy or the overseas company. I was a bit sceptical about that site from over seas.

    Fommy

    I purchased from Fommy. Free freight and an 800 number for support.
    I have had trouble with knock off products in the past and this unit looks like the real deal.

    just some advice. These chargers are that good. In fact even if you live in iraq with 24hr sun you will have a hard time charging it up.. I have 2 solio chargers and I they take about 2 days of full sun to charge up, and each one only charges my Droid one time. so I get to recharge my phone with them every other day. The solar cells on these are cheap and very low power, if you just want an extra battery to carry around? cool. But don't think these will keep your phone charged. :lifting:

    Which exact solio's do you have? I heard of a new company that built even better solar panel technology, but haven't heard of anyone actually using the new cells. Supposedly the new technologies will tripple the power creation from the sun, making solar energy more in line with main stream thought... which is why most current solar panels don't live up to real world usage.

    Oh this is a separate device... I thought it was a custom battery/charger for your phone.

    DOH! :r_c:
