So­lio, $129.95. so­ ★★★★ This 150g so­lar-cell-pow­ered charger could be just the thing if you go for long hikes, en­joy camp­ing or just want to be ready for storm sea­son. You can charge it through the USB out­let on your com­puter, con­nect it to a power point through a wall plug, or use the power of the sun. It takes about four and a half hours to charge via your com­puter and about twice that to charge it by so­lar en­ergy. The Bolt has two so­lar pan­els that pivot on a point. That point can be propped up with a pen­cil to face the sun. You can use it to charge any de­vice you can charge through a USB, such as a smart­phone, a tablet, a cam­era or an iPod.
