    I've seen several Solar energy backpack which can charge up your MP3,cellphone,and iPOD by using solar power and internal battery.
    Does anyone have experience with those?
    Would you buy one if the price is more affordable? Let say under $100 since most of the solar backpacks on the market are over $100.

    I would like one since it will be very useful during trips ;)

    btw normal users aren't allowed to start a poll? :confused:

    There's actually a review of it on and it got favorable ratings. Somethings to consider though... It needs direct sunlight, cloudy days won't give you full power, and other small issues. However, it works and perfect if you go camping or you can capture light when you are driving. Pretty cool technology imo.
