Go solar, baby

Everyone has at least one tech junkie who already has just about everything on their gift list every year. They’re impossible to buy for, because they always scoop up the latest and greatest as soon as possible.

But because they have so many gadgets, maybe they’d really dig a universal solar charger, especially seeing as how today it’s just $19.99 with free shipping (down from $140).

Save the earth, but don’t give up your gadgets. And find that perfect gift for the geek in your life. Awesome.


  1. awesome! bought one for us AND for my geek brother. thanks Mir!

  2. Thanks Mir! Perfect gift for my husband, who seems to have EVERYTHING! Happy Monday.

  3. Hey, Mir, this was really good timing. I just ordered one for my husband, who is off to Iraq in eleven days. (YIKES.) This way, when he inevitably forgets to charge his phone, he’ll still be able to call us. (Plus I got one for me because it’s cool, and I never remember to charge my phone, either. Thanks!

  4. I have no idea if these work, but I have family in South Louisiana that will be without power for the next 6 weeks thanks to Hurricane Gustav. Shipping one their way!

  5. What a great idea! We’re forever running out of charge on iPods in the car (my iTrip transmitter uses the iPod battery so it sucks up quickly) and this is great to have since we only have the USB chargers for the iPod….AND we can use it for our cell phones, too! Great when we’re traveling!

  6. Free shipping, yes, but be aware a $7 handling fee is charged. Still well-worth it, though, says my oft-traveling honey.

  7. I didn’t get a handling fee. It defaulted to faster shipping that would have been a bit over $7, but when I changed to slow-boat shipping, it was free. I bought 4 of these solar chargers – DH, FIL and 2 BILs will all be getting these for Christmas. Good thing as I have a horrid time shopping for them.
