Freeloader portable solar energy charger

One thing to fuel them all...

Formats supported with adapter plugs include: the LG Chocolate series; Motorola V66 series and V3 series; all Nokia and current N series; Samsung A288 and D800 current series and the Sony Ericsson T28 and K750 series. In addition, a USB 2.0 female cable is supplied allowing most brands of MP3 players - including iPods - smart phones, handheld games consoles, satnav device, digital cameras and Bluetooth headsets to be charged.

The device itself feels durable, is compact in size and looks stylish in its aluminium silver finish. Because the panels can clip on either end of the body, whether opened to receive sunlight or packed together for safe-keeping, there's always two panel-connectors left exposed. Some sort of simple, always-attached plastic cover similar to the USB port covers found on some mobile phones and digital cameras would protect these ports - even though they are quite securely in place and unlikely to be damaged - and make the Freeloader a little neater around the edges.
