The USB Solar Charger Tree from Brando can charge most any USB-chargeable mobile phone or other devices. The charger contains a 3000mAh polymer battery that can be charged by the sun or by AC power. It outputs 5V/1000mA of charging power, and it comes with a variety of adapter tips for mobile phones. (There’s apparently no tip for Apple products, but they do show an iPhone being charged using an Apple 30-pin connector cable.) It may not be as portable as flat panel solar collectors, but the USB Solar Charger Tree is just as “green” and looks a lot nicer. It’s $55.00 at Brando.
