Phone Charger Camping

Likes # 0

Hi

I am about to go camping an was hoping someone could suggest a product which could charge a mobile phone or preferably multiple phones most of which will be HTC desires, iPhones, blackberrys etc. If possible some sort of solar based option would be best but if not a large battery would be fine.

Any help appreciated.

Cheapest solar model is £140.00 from Amazon. Ouch! There is a wind up one there too @ £ 69.00. Seems a lot of money though.

was hoping not to spend that much, however from reading online some people seem to say most mini solar panels cant generate the current needed to charge a phone ever if they say they can in the product description.

I guess you could buy a few of the cheap one shot emergency chargers ( also Amazon) but I've heard these are not too good for batteries.

Maybe leave them at home? :))

If you'll have a car on site, use a car charger overnight available on ebay for a fiver or less.
