Solar chargers get even smaller, cheaper

No need to worry about getting stuck in the middle of nowhere with no tunes or phone. Not when you have this Cyrus USB SunDrive Solar Charger on hand. You might die of thirst, but you'll be well entertained while you suffer. Heck, you'll even have enough power to charge up that digital camera, creating fascinating photo documentation of your demise.

Look how small this thing is. It's a mere 2.5 x 1 inches, about the size of a book of matches. A recent Kodak attempt at a solar charger looks downright clunky by comparison. This SunDrive might be a good gadget to have on you just in case you need to charge up that cellphone or music player while wandering through the wilderness. About $23, it'll be available in Korea first, but this technology will soon be widespread.
