Lightweight Solar Chargers?
Posted by Buck Nelson on Apr 20 2006
I thought some of you folks might be able to help me on this one. Normally I don't have much electronics on trips, and I've always just carried enough batteries to get me through. But this summer and fall I plan to be out in the boonies for several months and need to be able to recharge my GPS batteries, a video camera, and a Motorola Iridium 9505A satellite phone.

It looks like there are a number of options for backpacker-style chargers. Do any of you have recommendations for lightweight chargers that would be appropriate for backpacking?

And my final key question is how do these items; phone, camera and GPS, "plug-in" to the charger? Can I just plug the normal charging devices into the solar charger?
