The Suntrica SolarStrap is a nifty, lightweight solar charging device that can be strapped on a backpack during a hike or around town and provides an often-needed boost to a cell phone, MP3 device, GPS or headlamp.
In this digital age we have an undeniable attachment to the mobile device charger. Plugging in is a necessary part of our lives, and when we get off the beaten track, away from the luxury of the outlet, our connection quickly starts to drain. This is where the Suntrica shines.
Compared to other heavy, bulky solar chargers, the SolarStrap is useful, light and convenient. Suntrica makes several models of the SolarStrap: the Basic for most mobile devices utilizing 5-volt systems, one specifically for IPod/IPhones and a High Energy Powerpack with enhanced battery power. We tried out both the Basic and the IPod versions; however, it seems probable an after-market adapter for the Basic could also be with an IPhone/IPod with success. The SolarStrap verion that has been rated for the Apple products comes with a cable and it is compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod Classic, iPod touch and iPod nano (check the generations to make sure that it will work with older products.)
