... Conclusion ---------------- I paid 60gbp for mine, I notice on the Solio website they are charging $99 which works out probably about the same once delivery is included. My charger has only been used in Germany, UK, Canada, and US. I guess that places with a bit more intense sun ... Read review

Very nearly cutting edge technology

AdvantagesIt looks cool!

DisadvantagesYou need an awful lot of sun!

"...you purchase the product then solio give a code for an extra adapter (i.e. for a Motorola phone) to be posted to you free of charge. There is a long list (phones, iPods, USB - see website for all options) and that is nice of them. I am not sure if this offer is still available, maybe ask if you order. The supplied mains adapter is useful for giving the power a boost basically turning the charger into an extra battery pack. 4 different colours ..." Read review

Quick review of Solio Portable Solar Charger Battery charger (BES001)

"The Solio, from Better Energy Systems is marketed as a 'green' product which will power your ipod/mobile/pda/gsp/psp etc. Unfortunately, the truth isn't quite as impressive as the hype. The Solio requires 8 hours of strong, uninterrupted sunlight to charge up fully. When I plugged my PDA into my fully charged Solio, the power drained away within 20 minutes. I then had one dead Solio, no sunlight, and a rather dissappointed feeling. The unit can be charged up via a mains adapter, and used as a back up battery, which is okay if you have mains power available but what's green and eco friendly about that? My verdict? Looks great but it doesn't really do what it says on the tin.
