I just picked one up at REI

Can't remember the model but it was only $30 and it works great, gets great radio reception, has a real bright LED light and a cell phone charger. Oh yea its real small too, perfect for the BOB.....

I buy recycled solar cells and hook them up in parallel or series to do what I want them to do. A $5 solar cell will charge and run a small radio.

What EXACTLY are you wanting to do?

I don't recommend a combo approach.

You can purchase individual components that FAR exceed something in a combo box.

I'd get a high quality lamp.
I'd get high quality rechargeable cells for that lamp.
I'd get a good 12V PV panel.
I'd get a good programable Hobby auto charger with 12V input.

And, I'd get as many radios as possible.


I don't know how I could narrow this all down into one package.

Sprig, I'm giving these as gifts to non-preppers, so the combo ones make sense financially. I want to get something that they won't stick in a closet, but will keep in their car or backpacks.

Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions!
