Icetech I-9005 Solar Portable Solar Charger

When The Gadgeteer has had news posts about solar chargers in the past, many commenters said that chargers for a single specific device seemed a waste of money.  The Icetech I-9005 comes with seven different connectors that work with a variety of phones, iPods, and other mp3 players.  The Icetech units have a battery capacity of 2500 mAh/3.8 V and selectable output of 4.5 V / 5 V / 6.3 V / 9 V.  It even has a built-in LED flashlight.  Check the compatibility list to see if it will work with your gadgets.  It’s $89.99 from Icetech, but J&R has it for $79.

    Nice array of adapters, high capacity battery (2500mAh @ 4.5V-9V is about two FULL charges of a Android G1). Good call, Janet! Would love to see this thing given the RL/Field test.
