The Great Outdoors, a great place to recharge

Even urban nomads find themselves occasionally in the Great Outdoors. Not voluntarily of course, but accidents happen.

And we all know what that means. No Signal, for instance, or even worse: No Power. Three Dutch guys have finally decided to do at least something about the No Power problem. They set up Soldius, a company solely dedicated to developing portable solar chargers for mobile gadgets.

Their first baby is aptly named Soldius1, and it charges iPods (except the iPod Video), Blackberries, and many popular types of mobile phones (a complete list is here) within two or three hours in the sun.

Sounds great! User experience welcomed.
