I believe we’re reached a new stage in powering our mobile phones, with everyone turning more and more ‘green’. The Nokia N900 Solar Charger I’ve found fits just perfectly in this theme, and helps provide an echo-friendly and cost-effective solution for mobile charging. Hit the jump for my thoughts.
There are quite a few of the products at the N900 Accessories Store who shipped me the item, it’s up to you to choose the best for your budget. Before I go on, let me tell you that they are shipping is free to wherever you live which is great, and to view the cost of the item in your currency simply click on View Other Currencies.
Solar charging isn’t something that happens in a second, even when the sun is shining like the 4th of July. You need to have patience, it takes longer than regular AC chargers and car chargers (which you can also get at the store). These green products are usually used as emergency chargers, so if you live in a country with a lot of sun, you can just place it out in the sun and it will do its job, as it has its own internal battery.
All in all, this N900 Solar Charger (I’ve got the cheaper one) charges itself in a couple of hours even though there isn’t much sun in England. Then it’s just a matter of plugging it into your handset and away you go. It’s a great product as a back-up charger and provides 1000mAh of juice. Go green, enjoy it!Tags | Charger, Connectivity, Green, Hands On, N900, N900 Solar Charger, Nokia, Solar
