Novothink Surge, we’ve been waiting on you. Any time saving the environment comes into action, we want to throw in our part. Picture this, you’re out on a weekend hike and get totally lost or turned around. Alls you have in your possession is your iphone and your Surge iphone solar charger (shame on you for not taking a SPOT).  Give your iPhone 3G or 3GS 2 hours in direct sunlight and you’re got yourself 30 mins of talk time or GPS functionality…if you can weed yourself out of the trees (spelunkers, you’re screwed in this situation, so always know where your’e going). Novothink has an awesome planner you should check out for those longer adventures: http://www.novothink.com/solar-planner/.

Bottom line, it’s bulky but totally worth it for 7 Hamilton’s (that’s $70 for you Aaron Burr lovers). Peep here to see how it works.
