This is the cheapest of the solar charges - I bought mine from Ethical Superstore for 25. It works well with my old Nokia phone, but my more high powered Orange SPV takes an age to charge up from sunlight. Be a killer product if you could add another set of panels so that the charging rate was doubled.
 Light, cheap, lots of adapters
 low power production, needs lots of sun
