12W USB phone charger
PRICE: £45 For an increasing number of us today, our mobile phone, tablet or laptop is our lifeline, enabling us to contact the rest of the world or keep in touch with vital services on the internet. However, these are increasingly power-hungry devices, and when the battery indicator starts flashing red our world collapses. This neat folding panel, with backcontact cells, will allow you to recharge any device that uses a 5V USB connector, and it has two outlets. We did not have time to run it through a complete cycle, but the makers claim it will fully recharge a phone in 1-2 hours, depending on the sunshine. However, make sure you do not leave the phone out in direct sunlight, as they do not like getting hot.
