    Ok, so I know most of you probably think that solar powered chargers are a joke, but I recently bought this one off amazon that works great. If you are like me, and like to do the "enviornmentally" conscious thing, its perfect. It also fully charges in under 3 hours from just sunlight, and its completely solar powered. I never even have to use my other charger anymore.

    Anyways, I posted my review in a blog, so check it out and leave a comment please. This is by far the best accessory ive bought for my iPhone

    LOL - at $75 you probably used more energy and resources to manufacture, package and ship the case than the $3-$4 in energy per year (if that) you're 'saving' by using this.

    To each his own, just doesn't make sense to me.

    Welcome to MacRumors BTW.

    pretty neat! and no i dont think solar power is a joke. i dont know why anyone would? it would be useful for daytime car trips. too bad i already have a kensington mount that charges it in my car though.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    That's one way of thinking about it. However, I've always wanted one so that I don't have to worry about an electricity source when one is not available. Thanks for recommending this OP. I can't go to the link here at work, but I had seen some on amazon for that price. Is this a case charger or is it separate (like an external charger)?

    I liked this one because it did the batteries too.

    not cheap at all, but living in a hurricane zone and having a car that the jacks don't charge the phone unless it's on, I have a need. Just not the money to get it! Lol! But I can acutally see a lot of uses for it, maybe i'll make it a joint Christmas gift for my dad, mom and I. Hmmmm, whose house will it stay at then?

    Probably spam.

    At least you found the right category. I mean, the product may be nice, but... buy an ad.

    I know a lot of the accessory posts sound like spam, but thread-bump + first-post + "I found..." text + fake-concern "I first" = no-brainer.

    Worse yet, if it hasn't been ordered and tested by a Macrumors regular already, it could be a scam or just not work with the 3G/3GS anyways.

    Riiight.. because we all know price is directly proportional to resources consumed.

    Money does not equal energy used.
