    Leaving for a backpacking trip shortly and would like to know the community's comments on the best solar chargers out there. Compatibility with a 3rd generation shuffle would be preferable, but any help would be appreciated

    icetech makes good stuff. I would get a folding one to protect it, but not the accordionated ones, they seem flimsy.

    icetech had some nice stuff, but it didn't seem to be good for being, say, on top of a backpack all day. I'm thinking about the Solio classic for $100, but does anyone know if it's compatible with the iPod shuffles?

    the Solio classic can charge over usb, so then yes you can charge the shuffle with it. appears to include the USB adapter, so you just need the cable that came with your ipod to plug into that.

    but since the shuffle charges over the headphone jack, you won't be able to listen while you charge, but with the soliio you should be able to charge the solio during the day, and plug in the shuffle while you sleep.
