Charging while cycling
November 28, 2007 6:07 PM Subscribe
I'm going on a 10+ day bike ride and want to be able to use my fantastic Nokia 6110
(with built in GPS) and my ipod Nano as long as possible. I bought a cheap solar panel charger on ebay and have found that it's useless. What are the best solutions? So far under consideration are better solar, a spare battery for the phone and emergency chargers that can be recharged when I can get to mains power.
The 'name brand' solar chargers around, the solio
and the freeloader
also have negative reviews
. The Freeplay 12V
looks cool, but has also got some pretty poor reviews
(but at least it looks like it works).
What would you recommend?
