Very cool!

I was going to try finding/making a solar charger for my netbook, which could in turn charge my USB devices...

Nice... I have a 5w solar panel I've been trying to figure out how to use it to power my laptop.

This is simple, but where do you think the 7 volts difference between the panels and the ipod goes? Into waste heat. If you are electronics capable, its a much better option to make a switching regulator.

Oh nice :thumb:
Dude, I got this today, it is sweet, built in 1200mah battery and a 6 hour solar charge time, or a 2 hour USB charge time, very small. It is worth the money. :thumb:

This is neat

I love my computer and would like to be able to use it even if SHTF and electricity was scarce. I wonder if there are solar panels for laptops.
